Barry White’s ‘You’re The First, The Last, My Everything’ is song on Argylle opening scenes

While the spy action comedy film Argylle will likely go down as one of the worst movies of 2024 (it is currently rated a 6 out of 10 on IMDB), it does feature a couple of decent songs on its soundtrack.

Not the least being Barry White’s ‘You’re The First, The Last, My Everything‘, which was the song playing at the beginning as Argylle and Lagrange dance together, and then as Elly and Aiden  dance.

Sure, it is played tongue in cheek throughout the ridiculous scenes, but at least there is something in the film that grabs your attention.

When was Barry White’s You’re The First, The Last, My Everything released?

Recorded for his third studio album, Can’t Get Enough, which came out in 1974, ‘You’re the First, the Last, My Everything‘ is a track by American singer and songwriter Barry White.

Co-written by White, alongside Tony Sepe, and Peter Radcliffe, the song soared to number two on the US Billboard Hot 100 upon release, while also clinching the number one spot on the UK Singles Chart.

Its popularity was underscored by its Gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in 1974, and a silver certification from the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) in the same year.

Produced by White himself, this timeless classic has gone on to become an iconic track from its era and, to this day, remains an important piece of music history.

Listen to Barry White’s ‘You’re the First, the Last, My Everything’ as played on those opening Argylle scenes, in the video and via the American R&B and soul singer’s Can’t Get Enough album.

Argylle is now playing in movie theaters across the United States and the UK but is being panned by most critics.
