Come Together is a track from the 1969 album Abbey Road and was released as a single with the song Something. This number made it into the top 10 in the US and Australia and hit #4 in the UK.

Several artists including Tina Turner, Michael Jackson and Aerosmith covered this song. Timothy Leary, a psychologist and proponent in the use of the drug LSD, was running for Governor of California and wanted to use the slogan Come Together And Join The Party.
