It is also covered by Eric Clapton on his 2013 album Old Sock with Paul McCartney. In an episode of the 1970s television show Sanford and Son, Redd Foxx (joined by Scatman Crothers on guitar) sings a short but memorable version. "All of Me" is also performed in the Muppet Show episode guest starring Paul Williams. The song is featured prominently in the 1984 Steve Martin/Lily Tomlin film of the same name.
In more recent years, it has been recorded by Pia Zadora, Anne Murray and Jason Danieley. Also, a punk rock rendition of the song was recorded by NOFX. The song was a major hit on records by Paul Whiteman and Louis Armstrong in 1932, and was successfully revived by Johnnie Ray in 1952. Chelsea Krombach performed the song for her debut album Look for the Silver Lining. Laurence Juber has also performed and recorded this song in an all acoustic version played by him. It was featured on his album PCH in 2007. Michael Bublé has released a cover of it on his album, Crazy Love, to be re-released.

A Road Map Through Song
Remembering songs is all about the form and harmonic content and movement with taking in the similarities between songs. And, just like a road map they're landmarks that will trigger memories of how to get through various sections, changes or parts of a song.
This section of a song's page presents some tips on how I try and remember a particular song.
For some reason this song has always given trouble memorizing it.
Here is how I remember All of Me in the key of C major.
- Start on the I chord in C which is Cmaj7 as it is typically uses 4-part a.k.a. "jazz" chords.
- Up a major 3rd to the III7 chord and the start of a brief cycle E7 A7 Dm7 (the II chord in the key of C major).
- Then back to the II7 the E7 and a V of VI Secondary Dominant to the VI Am7 chord.
- Then II7 D7 to a II V Dm7 G7 turnback. Actually the first ending as typically written, a.k.a., The Real Book.
- Starting over on the I, Cmaj7 then up a major 3rd to the III7 chord and the start of a brief cycle E7 A7 Dm7 to the IV chord Fmaj7 prime it to the IVm7 Fm7 then III VI7 II V to the turnback (TB).
For the play-along track there is a standard 4 bar intro and cool ending that we used.
Listen to the play-along track and name the chords as they go by. For really advanced players name the chords and the chord tones that are the chords. Name the color tones, etc...
Starting Note: Root then descending major arpeggio R 5 3.
Memorizing melodies - we actually remember a lot of melodies. It's our fingers that don;t seem to remember them. And, training them to respond to the intervals, scales, arpeggios and sequences that make of melodies is where all the work is. And that is a whole series of lessons and training that needs to be done.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books! — Peter Rhee
