Here’s a group of 80 songs that possess a common bond of having the word “together” in their titles. Perhaps they can help you in making an enjoyable playlist that you can share with others.

1. “Love Will Keep Us Together” by Captain & Tennille

• Album: Love Will Keep Us Together

• Released: 1975

• Genre: Pop/Rock

Song Facts

Recorded by the husband and wife duo of “Captain” Daryl Dragon and Toni Tennille, Love Will Keep Us Together was the biggest selling U.S. single in 1975. Neil Sedaka and Howard Greenfield wrote the song, first heard on 1974’s Sedaka’s Back album. In fact, Tennille briefly sings “Sedaka is back” at the end of the tune.

A number one U.S. hit, Love Will Keep Us Together also earned the Grammy for Record of the Year in 1976. Captain & Tennille reached the top of the U.S singles chart again in 1980 with Do That To Me One More Time. A trivia note is that Tennille was a background vocalist on Pink Floyd’s album, The Wall.

2. “Together Forever” by Rick Astley

  • Album: Whenever You Need Somebody
  • Released: 1987
  • Genre: Pop/Rock

Song Facts

Without this artist, we wouldn’t have the phenomenon of Rickrolling. Together Forever was Astley's American number one hit single from June 1988, following the Rickroll number one, Never Gonna Give You Up.

Astley was signed to a recording contract by producer Pete Waterman in 1985. Waterman and partners Mike Stock and Matt Aitken had tremendous success in the 1980s producing worldwide hits by Kylie Minogue, Bananarama, Donna Summer, and Cliff Richard, as well as Astley. Together Forever was a track from Astley’s 1987 debut album, Whenever You Need Somebody. The album topped the charts in England and Australia, and went platinum in the U.S., UK, and Canada. Astley received a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist in 1989, losing out to Tracy Chapman.

3. “Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green

Album: Let’s Stay Together

Released: 1971

Genre: R&B

Song Facts

Initially, Green was not happy with the sound of his falsetto vocal in Let’s Stay Together, and didn’t believe the song would be a hit. Green was wrong on that point, with the record topping the U.S. Billboard singles chart. Unusually, a group of winos, who were outside the recording studio building, were brought inside for the Let's Stay Together session. Producer and co-writer Willie Mitchell felt Green would get his best vocal performance with an audience in front of him.

Tina Turner’s 1983 cover of the song, produced by Heaven 17's Martyn Ware and Ian Craig Marsh, brought her back into the public eye. The result was the Private Dancer album, followed by Grammy, concert, and movie success. Additionally, former U.S. President Barack Obama received media attention in 2012, when he crooned a few lines of the song at a charity event held at New York’s famed Apollo Theater.

4. “We Belong Together” by Mariah Carey

Album: The Emancipation of Mimi

Released: 2005

Genre: Pop/Rock

Song Facts

We Belong Together became Mariah Carey’s 16th U.S. number one hit in June 2005, the most ever by a female artist. Since then, she’s added to that mark with three more chart-toppers. This tune spent 14 non-consecutive weeks at number one, with a total chart run of 43 weeks. It’s also been her most successful American single of the 2000s. It reached number two in the U.K.

We Belong Together's music video depicts Carey as a bride getting ready for her wedding day. Her character is set to marry an older and powerful man, but decides to run away from the reception with the ex-lover she still has feelings for. Eric Roberts plays the jilted groom, with Wentworth Miller as her true love.

5. “Bad Together” by Dua Lipa

Album: Dua Lipa

Released: 2017

• Genre: Pop/Rock

Song Facts

Bad Together is a bonus track on Lipa’s debut album. She had been performing the song in concert before the track was released.

The song’s narrator tells her lover that they both may have their individual problems, but as a couple, they’re made for each other. Lipa sings, “Know you’re bad for me, but you know I am too/Me and you together like a loved up bruise/ I’ll make you an offer you can’t refuse.”

Lipa was named the best British Female Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act at the 2019 Brit Awards ceremony. Her track with Calvin Harris, One Kiss, won for British Single of the Year. She also was voted the Best New Artist at the 2019 Grammy Awards. Her first name means Love in Albanian.

6. “Let’s Spend the Night Together” by The Rolling Stones

Album: Through the Past, Darkly (Big Hits Vol. 2)

Released: 1969

Genre: Pop/Rock

Song Facts

The Stones January 1967 double A-sided single paired Let’s Spend the Night Together with Ruby Tuesday. The BBC banned Let’s Spend the Night Together for promoting promiscuity. The group’s performance of the song on America’s Ed Sullivan Show is a classic television moment in Stones history. Sullivan didn’t want the group to perform the tune on his show unless they sang the title as Let’s Spend Some Time Together. That's what they did, but lead singer Mick Jagger rolled his eyes as he sang the line, and bassist Bill Wyman reacted the same way.

The song was covered by David Bowie in 1973.

7. “We’ll Be Together” by Sting

Album: Nothing Like the Sun

Released: 1987

Genre: Pop/Rock

Song Facts

The initial single from Sting’s second studio solo album has its history in a TV ad.

""We'll Be Together” is funny because it was written as a beer commercial for a Japanese company called Kirin” Sting told the British Independent on Sunday newspaper in November 1994. “I like the idea of music being a craft, I'm not precious about it. They wanted a song and the only prerequisite was the word "together." I wrote the song in 3mins 49sec, which is exactly the length of the song."

The original recording featured Eric Clapton on guitar, but the released version included Brian Loren in his place. The version with “Slowhand” can be found in Sting’s 1994 “Fields of Gold” best-of compilation.

The music video won the Best Cinematography trophy at the 1988 MTV Video Music Awards ceremony.

8. “Get Together” by The Youngbloods

Album: The Youngbloods

Released: 1967

Genre: Pop/Rock

Song Facts

“Come on people now/Smile on your brother/Everybody get together/Try and love one another/right now.”

The Youngbloods didn’t have a hit single with this anthem to unity and peace when it was first released in January 1967. Their version of the Dino Valenti penned song reached just 62nd place on the U.S. Billboard singles chart.

But two years later, the track was re-released by the group’s label, RCA, during what was known as National Brotherhood Week in the U.S. From the 1930s through the 1980s, National Brotherhood Week was promoted by the National Council of Christians and Jews to oppose hatred and religious intolerance. In 1969, the organization used the Youngbloods tune in a radio public service announcement. As a result, the song received renewed interest and was reissued, reaching the U.S. Top Five and Top Twenty in Canada. “Get Together” has been recorded by such diverse performers as The Kingston Trio, Jefferson Airplane, and Big Mountain.

9. “Together Again” by Janet Jackson

Album: The Velvet Rope

Released: 1997

Genre: R&B

Song Facts

Jackson wrote Together Again as a tribute to a friend who had passed away from AIDS as well as AIDS victims and their families worldwide. Originally a ballad, the song was changed to a house music dance track. Jackson told MTV’s John Norris in a 1997 interview that Together Again definitely has a disco vibe to it.

“It reminded me of being ten years old in Studio 54 in New York. That was the first club that I went to in New York” she said. “And that song gave me this kind of New York feel of disco and I wanted to do something that made me feel like that inside.”

Together Again topped the singles charts in the U.S., the Netherlands, and Poland.

10. “Someday We’ll Be Together” by Diana Ross and The Supremes

Album: Cream of the Crop

Released: 1969

• Genre: R&B

Song Facts

With 12 number one U.S. singles, The Supremes were the biggest selling Motown act during the 1960s. By 1969, and now dubbed Diana Ross and The Supremes, Someday We’ll Be Together would be the trio’s final release before Miss Ross left the group. Actually, Supremes Mary Wilson and Cindy Birdsong don’t appear on the record at all. Maxine and Julia Waters handle the backing vocals.

Ross, Wilson, and Birdsong did perform the track on The Ed Sullivan Show in December of that year That would be their last appearance together, except for a brief reunion in the 1983 Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever TV special.

Someday We’ll Be Together was the final U.S. number one hit of the decade.

11. “We’re in This Love Together” by Al Jarreau

Album: Breakin’ Away

Released: 1981

Genre: Vocal, Jazz

Song Facts

Al Jarreau won Grammys in three different categories during his career: jazz, pop, and R&B. One track from 1981’s Breakin’ Away album brought Jarreau mainstream pop success, the U.S. Top 20 hit, We’re in This Love Together. His smooth vocal-based songs, including 1983’s Mornin’ and 1987’s theme song to the TV series Moonlighting, were a nice addition to the music scene at the time.

However, as he told the L.A. Times in 1991, “I have had a little difficulty because the pop stations think I’m a jazzer who doesn’t have a feeling for pop, so it’s hard to get my records played. Similarly, black urban radio doesn’t understand that with my R&B roots, I am more than a jazz singer. So I get pigeonholed.”

Jarreau was one of the participants in the 1985 We Are The World charity record for African famine relief.

12. “Better Together” by Luke Combs

  • Album: What You See Is What You Get
  • Released: 2019
  • Genre: Country

Song Facts

U.S. country radio loves Luke Combs. In January 2021, the North Carolina native collected his tenth consecutive Number 1 single on the U.S. Billboard Country Airplay chart with Better Together. A month later, the track peaked at the top spot of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.

Better Together is a love letter in song to his wife Nicole, with such lyrics as, "Some things just go better together/And probably always will/Like a cup of coffee and a sunrise/Sunday drives and time to kill."

In November 2020, A reissued edition of What You See Is What You Get debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 200 Album Chart.

13. “Come Together” by The Beatles

Album: Abbey Road

Released: 1969

Genre: Pop/Rock

Song Facts

In 1969, psychology professor and psychedelic drugs advocate Timothy Leary decided to enter the California gubernatorial race. Leary, who along with his wife participated in John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s Montreal Bed In for Peace, asked the Beatle to write a song for his political campaign. The result was Come Together.

Leary’s campaign ended when he was imprisoned for cannabis possession. Lennon felt the song couldn’t have been used anyway as he told Playboy’s David Sheff in 1980 that the tune was “gobbledygook.”

Still, The Beatles studio version of Come Together topped the U.S. singles chart and went to fourth place in Britain as a double A-side with Something. Come Together would be covered by Ike and Tina Turner, Aerosmith, and even Paul McCartney joined by Paul Weller and Noel Gallagher as The Smokin’ Mojo Filters.

A remixed version of Ferry’s recording was released in 1988. Look for Ferry’s then-girlfriend Jerry Hall in his Let’s Stick Together music video. Scotland’s KT Tunstall recorded her version of the song for a 2007 album commemorating the 40th anniversary of BBC Radio 1.

15. “We Go Together” by the Cast of the Movie Grease

Album: Grease: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Released: 1978

Genre: Stage & Screen

We Go Together is performed by John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John, and company in the last scene of the film, set at a carnival. That sequence was shot on the football field of John Marshall High School in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles. Other films showing the school itself include Pretty in Pink, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and A Nightmare on Elm Street.

16. “Join Together” by The Who

Album: The Ultimate Collection

Released: 2002

Genre: Rock & Roll

Song Facts

Join Together, first titled Join Together With The Band, dates back to the early 1970s and Pete Townshend’s aborted Lifehouse project. Lifehouse was to be a science fiction rock opera follow-up to Tommy. After the plans were dropped, several of the songs would end up on Who’s Next , Who singles, or Townshend solo albums.

Join Together ended up as a non-album track single in 1972, backed by a live cover of Marvin Gaye’s Baby Don’t You Do It. In October of that year, Join Together was chosen as the official song of the United States Council For World Affairs.

17. “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” by Taylor Swift

Album: Red

Released: 2012

Genre: Pop/Rock, Country

Song Facts

When you’re a successful songwriter, you can often air your grievances over a failed relationship via music. Such is the case with Taylor Swift’s We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together. As Swift told USA Today’s Brian Mansfield in an October 2012 interview, the song is “a definitive portrait of how I felt when I finally stopped caring what my ex thought of me. He made me feel like I wasn't as good or as relevant as these hipster bands he listened to. So I made a song that I knew would absolutely drive him crazy when he heard it on the radio."

The break-up tune was Swift’s first U.S. number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot Country Songs charts. It also reached the top spot on the Canadian and New Zealand singles charts. The Swedish duo of Max Martin and Shellback (Karl Johan Schuster) co-wrote the tune with Swift.

18. “Together We Are Beautiful” by Fern Kinney

Album: Groove Me

Released: 1979

Genre: R&B, Pop/Rock

Song Facts

There’s a Diana Ross quality to Kinney’s singing in this disco track. The Mississippi native’s cover of Ken LeRay’s Together We Are Beautiful didn’t chart in the U.S., but was a UK number one hit in March 1980. In fact, it knocked off Blondie’s Atomic from the top spot.

Brotherhood of Man and Martine McCutcheon of British soap EastEnders and Love Actually fame have covered Together We Are Beautiful, too. Kinney’s rendition was used in a 1999 ad for Physio Sport deodorant as well as a 2013 UK EDF Energy commercial.

19. “Together In Electric Dreams” by Philip Oakey and Giorgio Moroder

Album: Electric Dreams Original Soundtrack

Released: 1984

Genre: Pop/Rock

Song Facts

Famed disco and movie music composer Giorgio Moroder (Midnight Express, American Gigolo, Flashdance, Top Gun) united with Human League’s lead singer Philip Oakey to provide this song for the Electric Dreams soundtrack. It’s a nice slice of 1980s synth-pop.

Moroder had great music producing success in the ’80s, with such film songs as Blondie’s Call Me, Irene Cara’s Flashdance (What a Feeling), and Berlin’s Take My Breath Away. Electric Dreams director Steve Barron, who worked on several Human League videos, suggested Moroder team with Oakey for Together In Electric Dreams.

It’s said that the song was recorded in just ten minutes. Oakey and Moroder would go on to release a whole album together in 1985.

The Electric Dreams film was set in San Francisco, and dealt with a love triangle between a man, woman, and personal computer. Moroder makes a cameo appearance at the end of the movie, playing a radio executive.

20. “All Together Now” by The Farm

Album: Spartacus

Released: 1990

Genre: Pop/Rock

Song Facts

Not The Beatles' Yellow Submarine song, but the track does share a common link with a Paul McCartney video. And like The Fab Four, The Farm were from Liverpool.

The Farm’s singer-songwriter Peter Hooton first penned a Jam influenced tune titled No Man’s Land in 1981, and two years later, the band performed it for a John Peel BBC Radio 1 recording session. Fast forward to 1990, and Hooton used the verses of No Man’s Land to create a new song, the dance rock-oriented All Together Now. Graham “Suggs” McPherson, lead singer for the band Madness, produced The Farm’s track.

“I wrote All Together Now about the extraordinary events on Christmas Day 1914 when British and German troops took part in an unofficial truce, singing Christmas carols, exchanging gifts and even playing football.” Hooton told the Liverpool Echo in 2014. "It was a spontaneous act of humanity that transcended the horrors and barbarity of World War One and is a story which still resonates 100 years on. It is a story of hope and peace which should be told over and over again.”

The Christmas Truce unofficial cease-fire was recreated in McCartney’s 1983 music video for his UK number one single, Pipes of Peace. McCartney played both a British and German soldier in the video.
