Marty Robbins Proves His A Master Storyteller As He Sings “The Story Of My Life”

Marty Robbins + “The Story of My Life”
by

In 1957, Marty Robbins achieved a massive hit when he released “The Story of My Life” off his compilation album Marty’s Greatest Hits. The song peaked at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart – where it remained atop for four remarkable weeks. It also made an impressive crossover, peaking at No. 15 on Billboard Hot 100. It was also a hit in Australia, where it ranked No. 2 on the Australian Singles Chart.

A year later, British singer Michael Holiday released his version in the United Kingdom, where it ranked No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart. Several artists followed, this includes Don Willilams, who included the song on his 1983 album, Yellow Moon. 

Love Is Indeed Sweeter The Second Time Around

Written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, “The Story of My Life” tells the story of a man who found love twice with the same woman. While they went through the sorrow of breaking up and the memory of a broken heart still haunts them, the joy of making up only makes love sweeter the second time around – making their love for each other even stronger.

“So the story of my life can start, and end, can start, and end, can start, and end, with you,” driven by a whimsical whistling hook, the song ends. It became the first commercially successful tune for the longtime songwriting partners.

Meanwhile, “The Story of My Life” gave Robbins – who was truly a master storyteller – the chance to showcase the depth of his talent.

It is without a doubt Robbins’ most recognizable song, though he has also been the voice behind many more major hits in the genre’s history. Marty Robbins songs include “El Paso,” “My Woman, My Woman, My Wife,” and “I’ll Go On Alone.”

Anyway, make sure to listen to “The Story of My Life” by Marty Robbins in the video below!
