Charted: 7
  • Why am I losin' sleep over you?
    Relivin' precious moments we knew?
    So many days have gone by
    Still I'm so lonely, and I
    Guess there's just no getting over you
    And there's nothin' I can do
    Wastin' all of my time, all of my mind over you

    Within the prison walls of my mind
    There's still a part of you left behind
    And tho' it hurts I'll get by
    Without your lovin', yes, I
    Guess there's just no getting over you
    And there's nothin' I can do
    Wastin' all of my time, all of my mind over you

    And I guess there's just no getting over you
    And there's nothin' I can do
    Wastin' all of my time, all of my mind over you ... Writer/s: JERRY FULLER

  • Tautriadelta from UkThe chorus is ".....for there's nothing I can do, but spend all of my time, out of my mind over you." Zabadak - don't trust your memory! "Over You" was very much an "A" side, the "B" side being "If The Day Would Come." The "B" Side of "Young Girl" was "I'm Losing You."
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn November 30th, 1968, Gary Puckett & the Union Gap appeared in concert* at the Municipal Auditorium in Birmingham, Alabama...
    At the time the group's "Over You" was at #27 on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; a little under six weeks earlier on October 20th it had reached #7 {for 2 weeks} and was on the chart for 11 weeks...
    Between 1967 and 1970 the group had seven Top 100 records, five of them made the Top 10 with two reaching #2, "Young Girl" for 3 weeks on March 31st, 1968 and "Lady Willpower" for 2 weeks on July 14th, 1968...
    "Over You", "Young Girl", and "Lady Willpower" were all composed by Jerry Fuller...
    With "Over You" the group became known as 'Gary Puckett & the Union Gap'; with their first three releases they were referred to as 'The Union Gap featuring Gary Puckett'...
    * Other acts on the concert's bill were the Grass Roots, the Buckinghams, Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart, Billy Joe Royal, Andy Kim, Four Jacks and a Jill; and the show's emceed was Davy Jones of the Monkees {reserved tickets were $4}...
  • Coy from Palestine, TexasThis was the last song written and produced for the group by Jerry Fuller. At the next session, Puckett and group left Fuller in the studio with a full orchestra waiting. Once they broke with Fuller the hits dried up.
  • Zabadak from London, EnglandIf I remember correctly, it was on the B-sie of Young Girl, at least in the UK.
