"Together Forever" is a song recorded by British singer Rick Astley, which reached number-one on the Billboard Hot 100 on 18 June 1988. It was Astley's second and final US chart-topper. It reached number 2 in the United Kingdom, being denied the top spot by Neighbours star and fellow Stock Aitken Waterman artist Kylie Minogue with her debut single "I Should Be So Lucky". The single also peaked at number-one in Canada, Ireland and Spain. It also peaked within the top 10 in Austria, West Germany and Iceland.
The song uses a similar chord structure and melody to "Never Gonna Give You Up" (as with most songs written and produced by Stock Aitken Waterman at the time), and has occasionally been used as an alternate Rickroll song (especially for situations where the recipient expects "Never Gonna Give You Up").
In 2019, Astley recorded and released a 'Reimagined' version of the song for his album The Best of Me, which features a new piano arrangement.
