History and charts

"We All Stand Together" is from the animated film Rupert and the Frog Song and reached number three in the UK Singles Chart in 1984. The "Frog Chorus" backing on the song was provided by the King's Singers choral group and the choir of St Paul's Cathedral. The 'flute playing frog' was Elena Durán. The B-side of the single contains a "Humming Version" of the song performed by McCartney and the Finchley Frogettes.

The song re-entered the UK Singles Chart one year later in 1985, one of three hits to do so that originally charted in December 1984 ("Do They Know It's Christmas?" by Band Aid and "Last Christmas" by Wham! were the other two).
