Around the World

"Around the World" was the theme tune from the 1956 movie Around the World in 80 Days. It never actually featured with the lyrics in the Around the World in Eighty Days film, but it is the vocal version which has by far become the better known. It was written by Harold Adamson (words) and Victor Young (music). Bing Crosby's recording of "Around The World" was a hit on the United States music charts in 1957, and was also popular in Australia in October-December of 1957.

Bing's "Around The World" was issued as a 45-rpm 7-inch phonograph record.
