Here's an Irving Berlin song I sing with plectrum banjo.

Anybody ever do this one? It was a hit 100 years ago but I don't hear it much these days.

The King's Singers had a nice version of it on one of their albums.

That's kind of the joke with this song these days.  That it is totally NOT that same song.  Irving Berlin wrote All By Myself in 1921.

Song you posted:

"All by Myself" is a song by American singer-songwriter Eric Carmen released in 1975. The verse is based on the second movement (Adagio sostenuto) of Sergei Rachmaninoff's circa 1900–1901 Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Opus 18. The chorus was taken from the song "Let's Pretend", which Carmen wrote and recorded with the Raspberries in 1972.[5] The slide guitar solo was performed by studio guitarist Hugh McCracken.
