You Are My First, My Last, My Everything – Barry White

“You’re the First, the Last, My Everything” is a popular song recorded by Barry White. Written by White, Tony Sepe and Peter Radcliffe and produced by White, “You’re the First, The Last, My Everything” was White’s fourth top ten hit on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, reaching #2; it spent a week at #1 on the Billboard Hot Soul Singles chart. The early disco classic made it to number two on the disco/dance charts. In the UK it fared even better, spending two weeks at the top in December 1974. It appeared on White’s 1974 album Can’t Get Enough.

Radcliffe originally wrote “You’re the First, The Last, My Everything” as a country song with the title “You’re My First, You’re My Last, My In-Between”, which went unrecorded for 21 years. White recorded it as a disco song, keeping most of the structure and two-thirds of the title, but he rewrote the lyrics.
