    Post difference between "all over the" and "all of the "

    I would be very glad if you could tell why "all of the " is not right to be used in this sentence.
    I chose "all over the" to be the answer.

    The song is famous all ......... the world .

    And please tell me the difference between the two sentences below.
    1) The song is famous all over the world .
    2) The song is famous all of the world .

    Default Re: difference between "all over the" and "all of the "

    "All of the" indicates the entire quantity. Like "I ate all of the ice cream."

    It doesn't work in your sentence at all.
