Love The One You’re With: YOU

American singer and multi-instrumentalist Stephen Stills, best known for his work with Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, released the lead single from his debut self-titled studio album in 1970. The song, inspired by a remark Stills heard from musician Billy Preston became his biggest hit single peaking at No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 in early 1971.

The title of the song is a mantra for everyone reinventing themselves to live their destiny: Love The One You’re With. And, no one is more important in this life than YOU. As Stephen himself said, “Once you decide that it is the art that is important and not how popular and well received you are, you no longer have an albatross. “ Make your life your work of art.
