I'm Sitting on Top of the World

Music by Ray Henderson

The song was most likely first recorded by Art Gillham (‘the Whispering Pianist’), who recorded ‘I'm Sitting on Top of the World’ on 24 October 1925. Al Jolson's recording is generally attributed to 1926. It was used in the 1928 part-talkie film "The Singing Fool" starring Al Jolson. In February 1926, Roger Wolfe Kahn and His Hotel Biltmore Orchestra's 1925 recording of I'm Sitting On Top Of The World charted at #9.

    Release Date: 1925

Gotcha! : Right Now! : 00  1 CD

Gotcha! : Right Now!

Gotcha represents the next generation of barbershop, placing twelfth in the 1999 Championships in Anaheim. Hailing from Southern California, these fresh-faced lads are known for their intense live performances, galvanizing audiences with their bold and energetic delivery. Their repertoire is strong on barbershop stalwarts such as "For Me and My Gal," "My Honey's Lovin' Arms" and "Jazz Me Blues." The four obviously relish an opportunity for heavy lifting, deploying all their tools of the trade with challenging tags on songs such as "Anytime Medley" and "Hello Mary Lou," the latter arranged by David Wright, musical director and arranger for Ambiance. Indeed, the company that Gotcha is keeping indicates a fine barbershop sensibility, and a connoisseur's taste - listen to their performance of Boston Common's "I'm Sitting On Top Of The World."

Songlist: Jazz Me Blues, Gotta Be on My Way, There Goes My Heart, Anything / I Can't Give You Anything But Love Medley, Hello Mary Lou, Royal Garden BLues, I'll Always Be Mother's Boy, Twelve Days After Christmas, For Me and My Gal, Drifting, My Honey's Loving Arms, I'm Sitting on Top of the World, What'll I Do, Don't Beat the Heart that Loves You, Swing Down Chariot
