The song I’m featuring today is from Willie Nelson’s album, Stardust. I learned it during the summer my family built a music room onto our house while I was in high school. You can read about that here.
According to Wikipedia, “All of Me,” written by Gerald Marks and Seymour Simons, was published in 1931 by Irving Berlin, Inc. Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra recorded the song on December 1st of that year with vocalist Mildred Bailey, and it reached the top of the U.S. pop charts. Within weeks, two more versions became popular: one by Louis Armstrong and one by Ben Selvin and His Orchestra.
The song was used in the 1932 film, Careless Lady and sung by Frank Sinatra in the 1948 movie, Meet Danny Wilson. It was also popularized by such artists as Count Basie and Billie Holiday. I hope you enjoy…
