"It's All In The Game" by Tommy Edwards
is an adaption to a wordless 1911 composition titled "Melody In A-Major", written by Charles G.Dawes, later Nobel Peace Prize laureate and Vice President of the United States under Calvin Coolidge. In summer 1951, the songwriter Carl Sigman had an idea for a song, and Dawes' "Melody" struck him as suitable for his sentimental lyrics. But it still took seven years, before it went to global success, inter alia no.1 in the United States and United Kingdom.
