Todd’s Tunes – 6/16/09

Daily musical post from SPDBRNR favorites

‘My Way’ – Frank Sinatra…1967.  Not only is this song now a legendary piece of American Culture, but it also has quite an interesting story behind it.  It was written by Paul Anka, specifically for Frank Sinatra to sing, but only after Anka flew to France to buy the rights to the original French song ‘Comme D’habitude’, which is the melody of the song.  Many have covered it, including Elvis Presley, but by far my favorite is The Sex Pistols version. Take a listen here.
