United We Stand as performed by The Brotherhood of Man (1970)

United We Stand
There’s nowhere in the world that I would rather be
Than with you my love
And there’s nothing in the world that I would rather see
Than your smile my love

For united we stand
Divided we fall
And if our backs should ever be against the wall
We’ll be together, together, you and I

For united we stand
Divided we fall
And if our backs should ever be against the wall
We’ll be together, together, you and I

And if the world about you falls apart my love
Then I’ll still be here
And if the going gets too hard along the way
Just you call, I’ll hear

How can you not love this song?!. It should be the anthem for all human kind! The song, which was heavily played on British radio, reached #10 on the UK singles charts. It also broke here in the American market.

The Brotherhood of Man ranks among the United Kingdom’s most successful pop groups of all time, their long career spreading across two very separate incarnations of the band. The original Brotherhood of Man was formed by record producer and songwriter Tony Hiller in 1969, specifically to record a song he had recently written with vocalist John Goodison, titled “Love One Another.” The song flopped. But their second single,”United We Stand” (written by Hiller and Peter Simons) became the hit. (Excerpted from All Music Guide)

The band’s second grouping is still active today . Here is their site.
Thanks for stopping by.
