It was voted from a poll of 500,000 votes to be ranked number 83 on the list of the Hottest 100 of All Time in July 2009, conducted by Australian radio station Triple J. Croatian metal band Ashes You Leave covered "Every You Every Me" on their 2009 album Songs of the Lost.
Along with the rest of the album (apart from "Pure Morning"), "Every You Every Me" was recorded in early 1998 at Real World Studios with Steve Osborne. When asked who it was about, Molko replied with "Who's it about? I'm not really too sure just yet. I think it's about a lot of people. Probably anybody... everybody who's had the displeasure of sleeping with me." About his choice to include it in the Cruel Intentions soundtrack, Molko said that he "studied drama, I know the original (Dangerous Liaisons) and we watched it on the tour bus when they wanted to use our song. I said: 'If he doesn't die in the end, if it's a happy ending, we don't do it.' It's quite perverted and manipulative, so the theme of the song fits in quite well."
