"Song2You"

I Want You Back is a song recorded by The Jackson 5 for the Motown label. It was released in 1969, and in early 1970, it became a number-one hit single. The song, along with a b-side cover of Smokey Robinson & the Miracles' "Who's Lovin' You", was the only single from the first Jackson 5 album, Diana Ross Presents the Jackson 5. It went to number one on the soul singles chart for four weeks and held the number-one position on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for the week ending January 31, 1970. It was written by The Corporation.

In Locked Up!, Tori, Cat, Jade, Trina, Robbie, André, Beck, and other Yerbanian convicts perform this song for the country's chancellor, used as a ploy for a prison break. There is also a Victorious music video released for it. When the song is over, in a reference to The Sound of Music, the group's collective name is announced twice before a guard goes to find them and returns, shouting "They are gone!", and when the chancellor finds out that the students from Hollywood Arts have escaped, he screams, "I WANT THEM BACK!" which may have something to do with the title of the song.

"I Want You Back" remains the only song covered by the Victorious cast on the show that was written by a third party.

Lyrics

Victoria:
Huh, ohhh whoa.
Let me tell you now, ooooh.
Everyone else:
Ooooh

Victoria:
When I had you to myself
I didn't want you around
Those pretty faces always made you
Stand out in a crowd
But someone picked you from the bunch
One glance was all it took
Now it's much too late for me
Everyone:
To take a second look

Victoria:
Oh, baby give me one chance
Everyone else:
To show you that I love you
Victoria:
Won't you please let me
Everyone else:
Back in your heart?
Victoria:
Oh, darling I was blind to let you go
Everyone else:
Let you go, baby

Tryin' to live without your love
Is one long sleepless night
Let me show you girl
That I know wrong from right
Every street you walk on
I leave tear stains on the ground
Followin' the girl I didn't even want around
Let me tell now
