I don’t believe I’ve ever heard anyone sing it quite like Elvis before.
“My Way” is a popular song that was famously covered by Elvis Presley in 1971. The song was written by Paul Anka, with music based on a French song called “Comme d’habitude” by Claude François and Jacques Revaux.
Elvis’ version of “My Way” features his trademark deep, powerful vocals, which perfectly complement the song’s lyrics of self-reflection and independence. The song’s memorable melody and emotive lyrics have made it one of Elvis’ most enduring hits.
The song was recorded during a prolific period in Elvis’ career, when he was making music and performing live shows at an unprecedented rate. His version of “My Way” was included on his album “Elvis Sings The Wonderful World Of Christmas” and released as a single, which was a commercial success, reaching the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
In addition to Elvis’ iconic version, “My Way” has been covered by countless other artists over the years, including Frank Sinatra, who made the song a hit in 1969. The song’s enduring popularity is a testament to its universal themes of individuality, self-expression, and personal reflection, which continue to resonate with audiences around the world.
