Du (English: You) is a 1970 song by Peter Maffay, which was the biggest German hit in 1970-1971 and brought Maffay instant fame in 1971.

The song was covered in 1986 by Dutch singer Andre Hazes as the title-track for his album Jij Bent Alles. David Hasselhoff also covered the song in 1994, but failed to eclipse the success of both Maffay's (Germany #43, Switzerland #41) and his own hit "Looking for Freedom" (#1 in Germany and Switzerland). Both songs are on the album Looking for... the Best.

A video clip from David Hasselhoff's cover was shown for comedic effect in the 2004 comedy, Eurotrip.

Peter Maffay song You spend two full weeks on the South African music charts in the #1 position.
