"You're in My Heart (The Final Acclaim)" is a song written and recorded by Rod Stewart for his 1977 album Foot Loose & Fancy Free. The song proved a popular single, reaching the top ten of many national charts, including #4 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and #1 for one week in Australia.[1][2]

The lyrics mention two of Stewart's favorite football teams in the phrase "Celtic, United".[3] The inner sleeve to the album Foot Loose & Fancy Free also pictures artwork with the names Glasgow Celtic and Manchester United drifting out of a car stereo. Rod Stewart wrote the lyrics as a tribute to his then-former girlfriend, Britt Eklund.
