Music Monday: “Where We Belong” by Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes and the movie An Officer and a Gentleman

Posted By on October 28, 2019

In keeping with the vacation post of the last few days, here’s one more leftover that stuck with me: cockerwarnesthemesongThe movie and theme song for, An Officer and a Gentleman (1982).


The song is Up Where We Belong written by Jack Nitzsche, Buffy Sanite-Marie and Will Jennings and was recorded by Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes for the 1982 movie An Officer and a Gentleman. The movie quickly became a “young and in-love” newlywed favorite for Brenda and me since it came out the year we were married. Brenda tends to over play the movie … whereas I tend to just listen to the music and have fond memories. In either case, we both enjoyed watching the DVD  again (a couple times) on vacation last week and the 1982 song is the perfect candidate for this week’s Music Monday.
