The Tra-La Days Are Over is a 1973 album by American singer-songwriter Neil Sedaka. The album was the second to be produced at Strawberry Studios in England in collaboration with Graham Gouldman, Lol Creme, Kevin Godley and Eric Stewart, who had formed the band 10cc since their first joint venture with Sedaka on Solitaire (1972).

The album, which consolidated his return to popularity after his lengthy absence from the charts, yielded two hit singles for Sedaka, "Standing on the Inside" (UK No.26, June 1973) and "Our Last Song Together" (UK No.31, August 1973).

Another song, "Love Will Keep Us Together", became a US No.1 for Captain & Tennille in 1975. Their version peaked at No.32 in Britain. The Captain & Tennille acknowledged Sedaka's authorship as well as his early-1970s comeback by working the phrase "Sedaka is back" into the song's fadeout.

On the liner notes to The Tra-La Days Are Over Sedaka added the dedication: "Thanks to Mike Curb for letting me have my way."
