"Alone Together" is a song composed by Arthur Schwartz with lyrics by Howard Dietz. It was introduced in the Broadway musical Flying Colors in 1932 by Jean Sargent.[1]

The song soon became a hit, with Leo Reisman and His Orchestra's 1932 recording (vocal by Frank Luther) being the first to reach the charts.[2] It is the most popular of Schwartz and Dietz's collaborations[citation needed] and has become a jazz standard. The first jazz musician to record the song was Artie Shaw in 1939.[3]
