"You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine" (written by Kenny Gamble & Leon Huff) is a song performed by R&B singer Lou Rawls on his 1976 album All Things in Time. The song proved to be Rawls' breakthrough hit, reaching number one on both the R&B[1] and Easy Listening charts as well as number four on the dance chart [2] and number two on the US Billboard Hot 100, where it was kept from the top spot for two weeks by "You Should Be Dancing" by The Bee Gees[3] and "(Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty" by KC and the Sunshine Band,[4] respectively. This was the first and only time that one of Rawls' records managed to reach BillboardTemplate:'s pop top ten. It was the first big hit for Philadelphia International to feature the reformulated MFSB, after many of the original members left Gamble and Huff for better opportunities.[5] The song started Rawls' live shows from 1977 on.

The single went on to sell over a million copies and was certified gold by the RIAA.[6]
