No. 1 Chart Toppers Pop Hit: “You’re No Good,” Linda Ronstadt.
“You’re No Good” is a song written by the late Clint Ballard, Jr. The song was first recorded in 1963 by female soul singer Dee Dee Warwick, followed in a matter of weeks by a version by Betty Everett. While Warwick’s version garnered her slight notice (topping out at US #117), it was ultimately eclipsed by the success of Everett’s version, which became a Top Ten hit on Billboard’s R&B chart and a minor hit on the Hot 100.
The song was later a hit for The Swinging Blue Jeans in 1964. It is best known as a signature song and the first #1 US hit for Linda Ronstadt in 1975.
