  • There have been many songs called "All By Myself", but one of the earliest was the standard written by Irving Berlin. According to his biographer Laurence Bergreen in As Thousands Cheer..., Berlin wrote it the year before his mother died as a meditation on solitude and the misery of growing old alone".
  • In 74 weeks, the song sold 161,650 piano rolls and 1,225,083 records. The sheet music, which sold 1,053,493 copies was published by Irving Berlin Inc of New York, and in Great Britain by Francis, Day & Hunter, copyright 1924 by Irving Berlin.
