    Gloria Gaynor & ?????? - We Belong Together

    Who is Gloria Gaynor's duet partner on this track?

    I have no idea, but it's a great track. Never listened to it before but I like it!!!

    From Gloria's 1975 album Never Can Say Goodbye of course.

    Interesting .
    I never paid attention to this cut before. Odd that someone is sharing vocals equally but doesn't get a credit.
    Don't especially find their voices pleasing together, too full-throttle by both of them imo.

    A British cover took the tune at a more sedate pace. It sounds rather undercooked.

    Could the song's co-writer, Lester Hodelin, be Gaynor's duet partner on her version?

    Gaynor's (ex-)husband, Linwood Simon, is credited with vocals on her 1984 I Am Gloria Gaynor album. I believe they married in 1979. Were they a couple as far back as 1974/5, such that he might be on the track?

    Ooh, those sound like good possibilities smallworld. I was thinking if the song had a male co-writer it might be him. But Gloria's husband, do you remember what he sounds like from that album? You could maybe match the voices.

    I've never heard the I Am Gloria Gaynor album, so I can't venture an opinion.

    Gloria Gaynor appears to be on Twitter. I deleted my account a while back so if any SDF member still has an account and would like to know the answer, you might tweet her the question and video link:

    Question answered:

    I did a lot of work with Gloria Gaynor. I sang on her “Never Can Say Goodbye” album, we did a duet called “We Belong Together.
