"Come into My Life" is a 1987 song by American singer-songwriter Joyce Sims, released as the second single from her album by the same name. Written by Sims and produced by Jamaican-born hip hop and electronic-music artist, DJ, remixer, and producer Kurtis Mantronik, it became her most successful song to date and a huge hit in Europe. It peaked at number seven on the UK Singles Chart and number ten on the US Billboard R&B singles chart. Elsewhere in Europe, the single charted at number four in West Germany, number seven in the Netherlands and Switzerland, while reaching number nine in Belgium. In 1995 and 2004, it was re-released with new remixes.
Andy Kellman from AllMusic said "Come into My Life" is "easily the best surrogate, low-budget Loose Ends song recorded". American magazine Billboard noted that the singer "weaves seductive passages that spin their magic" on the track. The reviewer added, "Sims grasps dance dynamics and club appeal better than most and consistently creates ear-fetching grooves." James Hamilton from Music Week's RM Dance Update described it as a "sweetly warbled early Eighties style soul swayer".
