SONG PROFILE
 
Love Will Keep Us Together

Format 7" record. Producer Daryl Dragon.

"Love Will Keep Us Together" is a popular song written by Neil Sedaka and Howard Greenfield in 1973. It was first released in the United Kingdom on Sedaka's 1973 LP The Tra-La Days Are Over, which was never released in the U.S.

The song arrived in the U.S. the following year when it appeared on Sedaka's compilation album Sedaka's Back.

Although Sedaka (and Wilson Pickett) recorded the song earlier in the 1970s, it is best remembered for the subsequent 1975 cover version by The Captain & Tennille.

It was their debut single, reaching #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the week ending June 21, 1975 and remaining in the top position for four weeks, and was the top US single for the entire year.

This version also spent one week at number one on the Easy Listening charts.

Their recording received a Grammy Award for Record of the Year. "The Captain," aka Daryl Dragon, and Toni Tennille acknowledged Sedaka's authorship as well as his mid-1970s comeback by working the phrase "Sedaka is back" into the song's fadeout.
