Neil Sedaka (born March 13, 1939 in Brooklyn, New York) is an American pop singer, pianist, and songwriter often associated with the Brill Building. He teamed up with Howard Greenfield to write hits for himself and others. Sedaka's voice is tenor. "Love Will Keep Us Together" is a popular song written by Neil Sedaka and Howard Greenfield in 1973. It was first released on Sedaka's 1974 LP "Sedaka's Back".
Although Sedaka (and Wilson Pickett) recorded the song earlier in the 1970s, it is best remembered for the subsequent 1975 cover version by The Captain & Tennille. It was their debut single, reaching #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the week ending June 21, 1975 and remaining in the top position for four weeks, and was the top US single for the entire year. Their recording also received a Grammy Award for Record of the Year. "The Captain," aka Daryl Dragon, and Toni Tennille acknowledged Sedaka's authorship as well as his mid-1970s comeback by working the phrase "Sedaka is back" into the song's fadeout. The Spanish version of the song, "Por Amor Viviremos", was released as well during the summer of 1975 and charted as high as number 49 on the Billboard.
