"Up Where We Belong"
by Deevotion - Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Deevotion is a German studio project from Jens Lissat and Ramon Zenker. Their 1992 release is a Euro-house cover of “Up Where We Belong” – the original by Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes from 1982. The song was written and composed by Jack Nitzche and Buffy Saint Marie. This piano driven dance piece is a nice transition into a new arena where energy moves and love still flows. It is quite beautiful with vocals that touch on a light soulful feel. One of the big numbers on my playlist for the time and a song that I often refer to whenever that longing for a mellow anthem.
I have taken Deevotion’s classic dance production and placed it “where it belongs” with pieces of the 1982 film, “An Officer and A Gentleman” starring Richard Gere and Debra Winger. The drama/romance story of a love growing between an aspiring navy pilot and a small town factory worker. This dance track holds on to the sweetness of the original songs romantic melody well and delivers an appropriate narrative for this Disco Video Mix.
The film was directed by Taylor Hackford
