"You" is a 1995 single by American house music studio project Staxx, assembled by producers Simon Thorne and Tom Jones, and featuring British singer Carol Leeming. This was their second number one on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart (after 1994's "Joy"), reaching the top spot on July 1, 1995.[1] The single peaked at number 50 on the UK Singles Chart.[2]

Critical reception[edit]

Billboard wrote about the song: "Dance act that brought "Joy" to many a punter over a year ago is back with a peppy Euro-disco mover that soars above the current throng of NRGetic wannabes on the strength of Carol Leeming's forceful vocal. She injects sass and bounce to a simple pop hook, while also anchoring the track's frothy mélange of sugary synths and loops."[3]
