"Side by Side" from EXPRESS
Words & music by Janine McGuire & Arri Lawton Simon
Lead vocal by Marialena DiFabbio
Background vocals by Kellie Cullinan, Janine McGuire & Arri Lawton Simon
Guitar by Jake Ezra Schwartz
Produced by Reed Robins

"Side By Side" comes from the 1964 segment of EXPRESS in which the characters are on their way to the World's Fair in Flushing, Queens.  The song is a teenage girl's response to her mother's racial biases, and a call for equality and acceptance of all people.
