65+ Best Songs With the Word "You" in the Title

Carson suffers from a serious case of melophilia. Geeking out on her favorite music artists is her guilty pleasure.


Every time I hear a song with You in the title, it reminds me of that special someone. It makes me wonder how a single word can evoke so many emotions. Or is it the entire song that brings out the best of that word? I think it's both. For example, Pink Floyd's evergreen song, "Wish You Were Here," tells you a lot of things without even listening to the song. Your heart aches for that person, and you wish that person was with you at that very moment.

There are probably thousands of songs with You in the title. But why do you think lyricists keep going back to this word? It's because they can express their feelings without naming a person. And the beauty of this word is you can use it for your lover, friend, family member, or even a total stranger.

From The Beatles to Eminem, bands and songwriters never think twice before using You in their song titles. It's almost like a successful formula that works literally every time for every song. When you see You in a song's title, you immediately know it refers to a special person.

Sometimes, You also refer to beloved pets. But it's that deep sense of personal feeling, the personal attachment, that makes these songs stand out. The lyricist may talk about his special someone in a song, but the same lyrics have a different effect on you. And it's these moments of broad perspectives that make songs with You in the title special.
