Barry White – You’re The First, My Last, Mu Everything (1974)

The best music, movies and TV shows have all been made, we’re here to help you remember them all. This is just one of the many great songs you’d hear on The Beat Chicago. 

There’s enough stations playing rock n’ roll classics and the same 80’s songs from Bon Jovi, Journey, John Cougar, Elton John all day long and that’s all cool but, when you want something completely different?  When you want everything from Marvin Gaye, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Spinners to Stevie B, C+C Music Factory and more of the music that keeps you movin?  We’re it.

See, we’re all about the classics too… Classic R&B and dance of the ’60s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, freestyle and more.  For us, it’s not about how old a song is, it’s about how good it is and this is as good as it gets.

“You’re the First, the Last, My Everything” from Barry White and his Love Unlimited Orchestra is one of those feel good songs that never gets old even though it’s from way back in 1974.

The pride of Galveston, Texas, Barry White was born on September 12th of 1944 and passed away in 2003, White wrote the song along with Tony Sepe and Peter Radcliffe. Radcliffe originally wrote it 21 years earlier as a country song he titled “You’re My First, My Last, My In-Between.  This video from Soul Train and is an actual LIVE PERFORMANCE.  While most of Soul Train’s performances were lip-synched, there were instances where live performances occurred.  For details on Soul Train, CLICK HERE
