Wiki: Charles G. Dawes Wiki

Dawes was a self-taught pianist and composer. His 1912 composition Melody in A Major, became a well-known piano and violin piece, and was played at many official functions as his signature tune. It was transformed into a pop song (It's All In The Game) in 1951, when Carl Sigman added lyrics. The song was a number one hit in 1958, for Tommy Edwards (Hatfield 1997: 360), and has since become a pop standard recorded hundreds of times by artists including The Four Tops, Van Morrison, Cliff Richard, Nat "King" Cole, Brook Benton, Elton John, Barry Manilow, and Keith Jarrett.
