"We Should Be Together" is a Christmas-themed song by Cliff Richard. Released as a single in November 1991 in the UK, the song bidded for the Christmas No.1 spot. However the song peaked at the No. 10 position - ultimately being beaten to the festive top spot by the re-release of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody following the death of Freddie Mercury.

The song differed from Richard's previous Christmas efforts - primarily being a love song. The promotional video for the single depicts an offshore oil worker who makes the journey back to his home to join his family for Christmas. In the song, at around 3 minutes and 44 seconds, the solo trumpet quotes the 2nd theme from the second movement of Dvorak's 'New World' symphony. This quote bears significance to the song, as Dvorak wrote this symphony when he was missing his home.
