"We All Stand Together" (sometimes referred to as the Frog Song or the Frog Chorus) is a song by Paul McCartney and the Frog Chorus.

History and charts[edit]

"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.[1] The "Frog Chorus" backing on the song was provided by the King's Singers choral group and the choir of St Paul's Cathedral.[2] 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).

In August 2017, the song was featured in a Channel 4 stop motion advert for their newly acquired series of The Great British Bake Off.

Personnel[edit]

Release[edit]

Two shaped picture discs were issued on the 12 November 1984[3] and 1985, the only difference being a plain clear sleeve on the later version. The song also appears on the UK/Canada version of McCartney's 1987 compilation album, All the Best!. The song was included on the deluxe edition of McCartney's 2016 compilation album, Pure McCartney.
