This Is Living

Rating:
3.4 / 5

Words & Music: Ben Weisman Fred Wise

This is living, full of fun and free
This is living, that's the life for me

It's good to laugh and sing, don't worry about a thing
Wear a happy smile, cut loose and run a mile
If you relax and just enjoy it all, life has got to be a ball

This is living, full of fun and free
This is living, that's the life for me

It wouldn't mean a thing
If I could be a king
I really wouldn't care
To be a millionaire
I'd rather find someone to love a lot
Live and give it all I've got

This is living, full of fun and free
This is living, that's the life for me

Don't wanna settle down
I gotta move around
I gotta lot of time
I'm gonna wait and find
The kinda girl who's heart is restless too
The kind who feels the way I do

This is living, full of fun and free
This is living, that's the life for me

I've always enjoyed this fun and beautiful movie song immensely. I rate every song, arrangement and performance from the "Kid Galahad" soundtrack album 5 Stars.

Elvis only jumps in at "it wouldn't mean a thing". Fairly late into the song.(after 48 seconds in a song that last for 1.42!).A enjoyable song nevertheless.

I quite like this song, full of fun and energy but good as it is, much preferred others from this top class Kid Galahad film soundtrack.

Nothing memorable, it doesn't hurts you, but if that is the best thing to say about a song, then you know that it's a waste of time.

Not terrible, but forgettable to say the least. Simply another generic soundtrack tune. 2 stars.

A throw away song if ever there was. 1-star.

Boring and uninspired. 1 star.

Typical soundtrack filler tune. Written to fit a certain scene. Nothing special, but I like it. 3 stars.

Very average, but enjoyable. I thought the Kid Galahad and FTD songs were a decent bunch, and was glad the movies only had EPs issued. It was the soundtrack albums that were hurting the 60's legacy. Too much below average material. Even Elvis said when you record 12 songs for a movie they cant all be good. Truer words were never spoken.
