One of Sammy Davis Jr’s biggest hit singles, ‘I’ve Gotta Be Me’ is featured in the spectacular year-long advertising campaign for Sky and its Sky Q next generation home entertainment system.
Over forty years after its original release, the song has returned to the UK’s Official Charts as a single download and has topped the Shazam Chart.
Unfairly overshadowed during his lifetime by the likes of his great friends Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, his extensive recording legacy nevertheless bears testament to his extraordinary talent. However, since the huge success of the movie ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ and its sequel, ‘Ocean’s Twelve’, interest in The Rat Pack and the great song stylists of the Fifties and Sixties has been rekindled, with two major British TV documentaries about his life further fuelling this spectacular revival.
‘I’ve Gotta Be Me’ is now delighting a whole new generation of listeners hearing Sammy Davis Jr.’s music for the first time. The picture sleeve 7-inch single is coupled with its original B-Side: ‘Bein’ Natural Bein’ Me’.
Taken from the newly remastered ‘I’ve Gotta Be Me – The Very Best Of Sammy Davis Jr.’ (CHARLY304P) the definitive best of compilation, featuring 20 classic songs, including ‘The Candy Man’, ’What Kind Of Fool Am I ?’, ‘Mr Bojangles’ and more!
