"You Showed Me" is a song written by Jim McGuinn and Gene Clark of The Byrds in 1964. It was recorded by The Turtles and released as a single in 1969, becoming the group's last big hit in the U.S. The song has also been covered by a number of other bands and artists over the years, including The Lightning Seeds, Salt-n-Pepa, and Lutricia McNeal. Like many of the songs that Gene Clark had a hand in writing during the 1960s, "You Showed Me" contains a mix of major and minor chords, arranged in unexpected progressions. Lyrically, the song recounts the tale of a lover who is being tutored in the ways of love by a more experienced partner.
In 1996, the song was covered in a trip hop style by The Lightning Seeds and was released as a single. It reached #8 on the UK Singles Chart. The Lightning Seeds' version was also included on the Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery soundtrack.

The Lightning Seeds are an English alternative rock band from Liverpool, England formed in 1989 by Ian Broudie (vocals, guitar, producer), formerly of the band Big in Japan.

Originally a studio-based solo project for Broudie, the Lightning Seeds expanded into a touring band following Jollification (1994). The group experienced commercial success throughout the 1990s and are well known for their single "Three Lions", a collaboration with David Baddiel and Frank Skinner which reached No. 1 in the UK in 1996 and 1998.

You showed me how to do
Exactly what you do
How I fell in love with you
Oh, it's true
Oh, I love you

You showed me how to say
Exactly what you say
In that very special way
Oh, it's true
You fell for me too

And when I tried it
I could see you fall
And I decided
It's not a trip at all

You taught it to me too
Exactly what you do
And now you love me too
Oh, it's true
We're in love, we two

Oh, it's true
We're in love, we two
We two

You showed me how you do
Exactly what you do
How I fell in love with you

You showed me how to say
Exactly what you say
In that very special way

You taught it to me too
Exactly what you do
And now you love me too

And now you love me too
And now you love me too
And now you love me too
