If I Ruled the World" is a popular song, composed by Leslie Bricusse and Cyril Ornadel, which was originally from the 1963 West End musical Pickwick (based on Charles Dickens's The Pickwick Papers). In the context of the stage musical, the song is sung by Samuel Pickwick, when he is mistaken for an election candidate and called on by the crowd to give his manifesto. Jamie Cullum also recorded a version for his album The Pursuit, and performed it at his special performance at the Late Night Prom, number Prom 55, of The Proms in London, with The Heritage Ensemble, on Thursday 26 August 2010 between 22:15 and 1. 5  . The Sammy Davis Jr. All-Star Spectacular. What Kind of Fool Am I and Other Show-Stoppers.

Sammy Davis, Jr. recorded the song in 1968 while the musical was still running on Broadway, altering the title slightly to "I've Gotta Be Me", and released it as a single late in the year. This version of the song was a surprise hit for Davis, since the musical was not among the more successful shows on Broadway that season. Produced by Jimmy Bowen, Davis' cover of the song peaked at number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in early 1969 and remained in the Top 40 for 11 weeks. If I Ruled the World.

Once again Sammy Davis Jr. (vocals) interprets classics of the Great White Way on If I Ruled the World (1965). As Stan Cornyn's rear LP jacket points out, the album came out during Davis' Broadway run of Golden Boy (1965). In an attempt to cash in on its success, this collection is highlighted by "Night Song" and "There's a Party Going On" from the score. Listeners, on the other hand, will be immediately struck by the notable disparity in the novelty of the youthful and vibrant "Flash, Bang, Wallop!" to the resplendent orchestration of Jule Styne's achingly tender "Tracey," the only non show-related song on the platter. Even more stylistically incongruous is the aforementioned jazzy and hip interpretation of "Guys and Dolls," one of the unquestionable zeniths.

The Sammy Davis Jr. For example, in jazz fusion Bandleader-composer Miles Davis album Bitches Brew, producers like Phil Spector and George Martin were soon creating recordings that were, in practical terms, almost impossible to realise in live performance. Producers became creative figures in the studio, other examples of such engineers includes Joe Meek, Teo Macero, Brian Wilson, and Biddu. Kurt Julian Weill was a German composer, active from the 1920s in his native country, and in his years in the United States.

If I ruled the world Every day would be the first day of Spring Every heart would have a new song to sing And we'd sing of the joy every morning would bring. If I ruled the world Every man would be as free as a bird Every voice would be a voice to be heard Take my word, we would treasure each day that occurred. My world would be a beautiful place Where we would weave such wonderful dreams My world would wear a smile on its face Like the man in the moon when the moon beams
