All Around the World (The Jam song)

"All Around the World" was a single released by The Jam on 15 July 1977 and reached No. 13 in the UK Singles Chart.

The single was backed by the B-side, "Carnaby Street," and was released between the debut album, In the City, and the band's second album, This Is the Modern World.

The song is often erroneously thought to be featured in Abigail's Party, coming from the party held next door by the unseen title character. The song is question was "Natch" by a session band called Midas Touch, featured on the library music LP Heavy Group Activity / Light Group Activity (1974).

The song was also featured in A Year in Yellow, a documentary aired on Sky Atlantic, about British cyclist Bradley Wiggins attempts to win the 2012 Tour de France. Wiggins, who is a self-confessed fan of The Jam, can be heard listening to it in his hotel room in the days leading up to the Tour.
