Day 299: Up where we belong, Joe Cocker & Jennifer Warnes

This is a particularly memorable duet from the 1980s and of course was the theme song to hit movie “An officer and a Gentleman”. Again lots of teenage memories.

The other great thing about this song is the wonderful contrast between Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warne’s voice; the rough with the smooth really works well in this duet. The other really moving thing about this duet the look of absolute love and admiration Jennifer gives Joe repeatedly as they sing the duet together.
