|NOTES & TRIVIA|
The first single to only feature Al originals.
The first Scotti Bros. Al single to include a new song not released onto an album within the same year.
Al's first single recorded to promote a movie.
Al's first single since "My Bologna" to not chart in Billboard.
Ironically, the movie this single was promoting (the mega-"hit" Johnny Dangerously) used an alternate, shorter version of the song during its opening credits. Due to wacky legal reasons, "This Is The Life" was not featured AT ALL on home video releases of the film until the 2002 DVD release. In the meantime, the shorter version of the song (the same edit that was used in the movie!) was made available on the 1985 home video The Compleat Al.
