"Everywhere" is a song by British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac from their fourteenth studio album Tango in the Night (1987). It was written by Christine McVie, who also performs lead vocals on the song. "Everywhere" was released as the fourth single from Tango in the Night on 28 November 1987 in the United States, where it reached number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart, remaining there for three weeks.[1] "Everywhere" was released in the United Kingdom on 21 March 1988 and reached number four. It also reached number 45 in Australia. In March 2013, after featuring in an advert for UK mobile phone provider 3,[2] "Everywhere" re-entered the UK Singles Chart and peaked at number 15.

A 12" single was also issued and featured an extended dance version and dub version. "Everywhere" also marked the first CD single release by the band in most territories.[citation needed] All formats included the B-side "When I See You Again", a song taken from Tango in the Night; the 12" format featured an extended mix of "Everywhere" and the CD single contained bonus tracks "Rhiannon" and "Say You Love Me" from Fleetwood Mac's tenth studio album Fleetwood Mac (1975).

Music video[edit]

The accompanying music video for "Everywhere" is a visual depiction of the poem The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes. There are two versions of the video; one features the story with members of the band appearing throughout, while the other does not feature the band at all.
