SONG PROFILE
 
"I'll Walk Alone"

"I'll Walk Alone" is a 1944 popular song with music by Jule Styne and lyrics by Sammy Cahn.

Dinah Shore made the best-known version of this song, recording it twice.

She first introduced it in the Universal Studios film "Follow the Boys" and taking it to the top of the charts (her first #1 hit) for four weeks and reaching number ten on The Harlem Hit Parade in 1944, and later rerecorded the song in the early 1960s. Martha Tilton also fared well, placing the song in Billboard's Top Ten.

Oddly, when the song was revived in the 1950s, it was often done by male singers, with a very popular version being done by Don Cornell (1952 top ten).

Oddly, teen idol Ricky Nelson recorded a version for his 1958 album Ricky Nelson
