Jars of Clay
The song "I need you" by Jars of Clay was released in 2001, on the "TheEleventh Hour" CD. It did reach #1 CHR and #8 Rock on the CCM Magazine charts.
Neither of those charts is used here

Kenney Rogers & The First Edition - I Need You
"Kenney Rogers & The First Edition - I Need You" is not on the list, its from the LP "Rollin' (TV Soundtrack) 1973". Been searching the net for it and ran across your site. ...Cool site BTW :-)
Because it was not a hit anywhere, this is a list of *chart hits* called "I need you", NOT a list of all songs called that

The purpose of this web site is not to list every song with a particular title, just the ones that were hits somewhere. None of the three songs you list were listed in any of our charts.
Not only do we have one of the songs you mention in our mp3 collections but we also have:
"I Need You" by Joan Armatrading from "Me Myself I" 1980
