"Everywhere" is a single released by the British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac from their album Tango in the Night, written by Christine McVie who also performs lead vocals on the song.


"Everywhere" was released in the United Kingdom on February 24, 1988 and reached #4 there. In the United States, it was released earlier on November 28, 1987 and reached number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and went to #1 on the U.S. adult contemporary chart, remaining there for three weeks.[1] The song also reached #45 in Australia.

After featuring in an advert for UK mobile phone provider 3,[2] the song re-entered the UK Singles Chart and peaked at number 15 in March 2013. As a result of this newfound success, the song was featured on the compilation disc, Now That's What I Call Music! 84 in March 2013[3] as well as having appeared on the compilation album The Hits Album 8 in July 1988. The single has been certified Silver in the UK for digital sales in excess of 200,000.

A 12-inch single was also issued, and featured an extended dance version and dub version. "Everywhere" also marked the first CD-single release by the band in most territories.[citation needed] All formats included the B-side "When I See You Again", a track taken from the Tango in the Night album; the 12" format featured an extended mix of "Everywhere", and the CD-single contained bonus tracks "Rhiannon" and "Say You Love Me" from the 1975 album Fleetwood Mac.

The video of the song is a visual depiction of the poem The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes. There are two versions of the video; one features the story with members of the band appearing throughout, while the other doesn't feature the band at all.
