Once Around The World is the seventh single by It bites. It was written by Francis Dunnery and released in March 1988. The eponymous album signaled a departure from the more directly pop-oriented sound of It Bites' first album, something demonstrated explicitly by this fourteen-minute title track in full progressive rock style.[1][2]
