"This Is Me" is a song by British pop duo Climie Fisher, originally released in August 1986 as their debut single, but did not chart. After the success of "Rise to the Occasion" and "Love Changes (Everything)", it was re-released in May 1988 and charted at number 22 on the UK Singles Chart. The song features backing vocals by Kirsty MacColl.
Reviewing the song for Record Mirror in 1988, Chris Twomey wrote that it "lacks the hooky qualities that made 'Love Changes' an eventual winner. Treading perilously close to Chicago territory here". Richard Lowe for Smash Hits described the song as "an unremarkable "classy" pop single. The tune's all present and correct, there's a dinky little piano bit that runs all the way through it and has a hugely whistleable "hook", and it's bound to be a very big hit. It's not very exciting though…".
