We’re In This Love Together – Al Jarreau

Jarreau and the song’s producer Jay Graydon were going through songs to record in search of a hit single. Despite being a critically acclaimed jazz vocalist, Graydon felt Jarreau needed a hit to reach a wider audience.
“We’re In This Love Together” was the last song at the bottom of the box, to which Graydon said “This better be our hit.” Although the song was closely associated with Jarreau, the song wasn’t written for him in mind.
According to the song’s co-writer Keith Stegall, “We’re In This Love Together” was originally intended for Jarreau’s labelmates at Warner Bros. Records, Neil Larsen and Buzz Feiten for their 1980 album The Larsen-Feiten Band. Instead of being given to them, the song was mistakenly given to Jarreau.
Stegall also noted the song was first pitched to singer Johnny Mathis, but did not receive a response from him.[3] Much later, Mathis covered the song in his 2008 album, A Night to Remember.

    ◦ Ephesians 6:12-13 says: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”
