I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter

"I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter" is a 1935 popular song with music by Fred E. Ahlert and lyrics by Joe Young. It has been recorded many times, and has become a standard of the Great American Songbook. The song was recorded by Frank Sinatra for his 1954 album Swing Easy, Bing Crosby for his 1957 LP Bing With A Beat and again by Sinatra in 1962 for his collaborative album with Count Basie, Sinatra-Basie. But the first big hit version was by Fats Waller in 1935,reaching further heights for the Boswell Sisters later that year and remaining charted into 1936; the song also had a major revival in 1957 in a recording by Billy Williams, which reached #3 on the Billboard magazine charts (a reported million-seller). Among other versions are recordings by Nat "King" Cole, Barry Manilow, Dean Martin, Scatman Crothers, and Bill Haley & His Comets, the latter who recorded a rock and roll version of the song in 1957.
