§ I Am Music and I Pick the Songs: Up Where We Belong

{Song #68 « Song #69 » Song #70}

§ ≡ One of an ongoing series of posts in which I pick, in my not-so-humble opinion, the best songs of the second millennium. Feel free to offer constructive dissenting opinions; preferably set to music.

Up Where We Belong

Song #69 is Up Where We Belong sung by Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes, is a song from the 1982 film An Officer and a Gentleman. Written by Jack Nitzsche and Buffy Sainte-Marie, with lyrics by Will Jennings. The song was part of the "An Officer and a Gentleman Original Soundtrack", and was later released as part of "The Best of Joe Cocker" (1993). In 1991, it was re-released as a Jennifer Warnes CD-single alongside "First We Take Manhattan" and "(I've Had) The Time of My Life". The song's composer, Buffy Sainte-Marie, did a cover of the song for her album "Up Where We Belong" and the TV special of the same name.
