Forty years ago this week, You are everything by Diana Ross and Marvin Gaye reached its highest position of number 5 in the UK singles chart. It had entered the top 40 four weeks previously at number 25 and broke into the top 10 two weeks later. After one week at its peak position, the song stayed in the top 10 for another two weeks and then dropped into the lower top 40 for the final three weeks of its chart life.
You are everything was released on the Tamla Motown record label and was the ninth of twenty-one UK top 10 hits for Diana Ross and the fifth of eight for Marvin Gaye. It was taken from the gold-selling album Diana and Marvin, which peaked at number 6 in the UK album chart. The single was certified silver.
The original version of the song was recorded by the Stylistics in 1971 but did not enter the UK chart. Another version did enter the top 40 in 1995 when Melanie Williams and Joe Roberts reached number 28.
