Just You is a song by US singing duo Sonny and Cher, first released in April 1965. It was recorded in January of that year, and was the first single which they released on the ATCO label; before that time they had been under contract to Reprise Records. The song initially did not chart but in the slipstream of the I Got You Babe success it was rereleased and reached a respectable #20 on the US singles chart. The B-side of the record, Sing, c'est la vie did much better in other parts of the world (in Australia, for example; it also reached #1 in Belgium).

The single Just You, taken from Sonny and Cher's successful album Look at Us, reached the top twenty in the US in 1965. In France it led to a French language cover version by Sheila who teamed with the young male singer Akim to record Pas sans moi (French lyrics by Claude Carrère and Vline Buggy). It was on an EP with the hit track Devant le juke-box (If I didn't have a dime). Cher wrote in her autobiography that Just You is still one of her favorite tracks. The song is said to be similar to Baby, I Love You by The Ronettes. Just You became the duo's third top twenty hit after I Got You Babe and Baby Don't Go.

In 1971, Tirso Cruz III sang this song with Nora Aunor on their duet album Dream Come True (under Vicor Records).
