"You Have Been Loved" (George Michael/David Austin) / "The Strangest Thing '97" (George Michael) is a double A-side single by the dance-pop artist George Michael. Both songs are from his 1996 album Older. The single reached #2 on the UK charts, only behind Elton John's "Candle in the Wind" '97 charity single. The song was Michael's second double A-side single, after "Older / I Can't Make You Love Me", released the same year.

Two singles were released for the double A-side. The cover for the first shows Michael cross-legged on a black chaise longue in a room with brown-tiled walls. The cover for the second is just a close-up of the first cover, and does not show the chaise longue. The single version is referred to as "The Strangest Thing '97" instead of simply "The Strangest Thing" of the album version because the single version is a remixed/re-recorded, more up-tempo dance track.
