"Just the Way You Are"
"Be My World"

"Just the Way You Are" is a song recorded by Italian House group Milky. The single was also the first song to make its official debut at number one on the Billboard Hot Dance Airplay chart in its October 17, 2003, issue, even though it reached number one in the September 28 issue, when it was an unpublished chart.[1]


The track features the vocals of German singer Giuditta, whose lyrical "do-do-do's" make up the song's most memorable chorus line, and is best remembered by its Ibiza-influenced guitar beat, done over a pair of sampled tracks: "Streets of Your Town" by the Australian pop group The Go-Betweens, and "Listen to What the Man Said" by Paul McCartney & Wings. McCartney and his late wife Linda both receive writing and production credits on the single because of the use of the song elements from "Listen."

Music video[edit]

For the song's video and promotional campaign during its chart run, Egyptian/German model Sabrina Elahl was used as the group's face instead of Giuditta.
