AllMusic Review by

In 1962, Bobby Darin joined Capitol Records and released Oh! Look at Me Now, which peaked at number 100 on the Billboard charts and stayed there for six weeks. The classic Billy May arrangements make this one of Darin's most swinging albums and a surefire favorite with fans who discovered him from the Swingers soundtrack. Included first in this LP is the song the nostalgic 1996 film made famous: Nat "King" Cole's "I'm Beginning to see the Light." Standout songs like Irving Berlin's "All By Myself," "A Nightingale Sang in Berkley Square," and "There's a Rainbow 'Round My Shoulder" repeat its upbeat, confident success. Oh! Look at Me Now also includes the nightcap ballad "My Buddy," the fun word play of "Roses of Picardy," and the sweeping epic "The Party's Over."
