"It's Ecstasy When You Lay Down Next to Me" is a hit song by Barry White. The song was written by Ekundayo Paris and Nelson Pigford, and consequently totally arranged by Barry White.

Released from his album Barry White Sings for Someone You Love, it spent five weeks at the top (#1) of the R&B singles charts during the fall of 1977 and was also a big hit on the pop charts, peaking at number four on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.[1] The track was later sampled by Mary J.
