"All the Way" is a 1950s pop song made famous by Frank Sinatra[1] and covered since by many musicians.

Frank Sinatra's version was published in 1957 by Maraville Music Corporation. The music was written by Jimmy Van Heusen with lyrics by Sammy Cahn.[2] It was introduced in the film The Joker Is Wild.[2] Sinatra also had the best-selling recorded version of the song. Aside from this song, he also sang "Chicago (That Toddlin' Town)" for the movie. It wound up as the flipside of "All the Way" when Capitol Records released the song as a single. The single reached #15 in sales and #2 in airplay in Billboard's charts. The track peaked at #3 in the UK Singles Chart.[2]

The song received the 1957 Academy Award for Best Original Song.[2]

Translations[edit]

Mina performed "Si, amor", the Italian version of the song in Canzonissima, a 1968 RAI musical variety series. Neil Sedaka also recorded "Si Amore" in the mid-1960s for his Italian fans.
