It was introduced in the Broadway musical Flying Colors in 1932 by Jean Sargent.
The song soon became a hit, with Leo Reisman and His Orchestra's 1932 recording being the first to reach the charts. It is the most popular of Schwartz and Dietz's collaborations and has become a jazz standard. The first jazz artist to record the song was Artie Shaw in 1939.
Alone together, beyond the crowd, Above the world, we're not to proud To cling together, we're strong As long as we're together.
Alone together, the blinding rain The starless night, we're not in vain For we're together, and what is there To fear together.
Our love is as deep as the sea, Our love is as great as a love can be And we can weather the great unknown If we're alone together.
