This song originally was released in 1955 by Fats Domino, who scored a big hit with it. He sold millions of copies, and reached number 10 in the pop chart. Pat Boone re-recorded the song, and brought it to the white audience. After that, his version was forgotten about, since the version by Fats Domino also reached the white audience. However, I knew this version before the one of Fats, and still think this is also a great song. Enjoy

Fats Domino I'm Walkin

The song I’m Walking was written by Fats Domino and Dave Bartholomew. Fats recorded it in 1957, and made it to number 4 in the US pop chart and even to number 1 in the R&B chart. Later, the song would be used in the movie The Blues Brothers, and in some commercials (as the picture tells us). Enjoy
