Barry White's “You're the First, the Last, My Everything”

Barry White is best known for his distinctive bass-baritone voice, which helped him become one of the most iconic musicians during the 1970's soul, funk, and disco era. Bid on 25% of the seller's interest in the songwriter's share of public performance royalties for the hit song “You're the First, the Last, My Everything.” The song was released by Barry White in 1974. It peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot Soul Singles chart and #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

This evergreen song, “You're the First, the Last, My Everything,” continues to consistently earn royalties year after year. Considering that this song has been popular for over 40 years, it is realistic to assume it will maintain its popularity in the future. Evergreen is an adjective that describes something that is continually fresh or self-renewing. In the music industry, it is used metaphorically to describe a song with long-lasting popularity that has withstood the test of time.
