Both “you and me” and “you and I” can be grammatically correct. Which one you need depends on what you’re trying to say.

What I was taught is if you leave out "you and", it should be grammatically correct.

"You and I went on Amirite today."
"She is going with you and me."

I and I. Like the rasta would say, you and I are one in the same if we're friends, thick as blood. Not quite sure of the reasoning behind the Patois usage, but "you" in the sense of familiar is rare.

I was taught that whichever word (i or me) you would use in the singular is proper in the plural.

I'm not much help here, but that reminds me of a great tune.

Both are correct, dependingI on whether we are the subject or predicate of the sentence:
"You and I should have lunch soon."
"The choice is up to you and me."

Now learn the dative case.

Suppose I say "Give me your book." The word 'me' is in the dative case because what I really mean is "Give TO me your book." The dative case exists any time you have to, from, for, by, at, on, of, and so on. Some words have special forms for dative case and some don't. You would say to me, for me, to whom, for whom, and so on, but 'you' does not have a special dative form.

Note that possessive 'of' is another dative case. It could be genitive 'of' meaning a source, but no special form.

One of the funny things about English grammar is, that the point, when I learned it was "If I were"... instead of the naturally coming "If I was"... Took me a long time to process. It's both the language barrier and the fact, that even English, as easy as it is as a language, still has its little quirks.
