"Get It Together" is a song performed by James Brown. Released in 1967 as a two-part single, it charted #11 R&B and #40 Pop.[1] Both parts also appeared on the album I Can't Stand Myself When You Touch Me. Donald A. Guarisco of Allmusic described the song as "a taut, minimalist tune that combines soulful but frantically paced verse melodies with a bubbling, two-note staccato chorus."[2]

Brown performs "Get It Together" in the concert films James Brown: Man to Man and Live at the Boston Garden: April 5, 1968.
