"You and I" is a song written by Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb and was recorded and performed by Kenny Rogers from his 1983 album Eyes That See in the Dark. Despite not being released as a single, it has been played on the radio, becoming one of Rogers' most popular songs. Barry Gibb sings background vocals on the intro, chorus, interlude (between the first chorus and second verse). The performer of the song sometimes credited to 'Kenny Rogers and the Bee Gees' because Barry used his falsetto.

"You and I" was recorded around May 1983, the Boneroo Horns was heard on the song's outro.[1]

Barry Gibb version[edit]

Barry Gibb's original version of "You and I" was the second song intended for Kenny Rogers' new album. Gibb's version was recorded in January 1983 in Miami Beach, Florida with "This Woman" and "Midsummer Nights".[1] This version was released officially in 2006, 23 years after Gibb finished this song. This song followed the style of Gibb's own version of "Eyes That See in the Dark".[1] Like he does on Rogers' version, he sings background vocals on the intro, first chorus interlude (between the first chorus and second verse) and the second chorus. Gibb's version was released on The Eyes That See in the Dark Demos.
