Yes, I know, this one belongs to Frank Sinatra but Elvis certainly did a good job of it too.

Another song to start its life as a foreign language tune – the French “Comme d’habitude” – My Way featured in many of Elvis concerts including the ones featured on the Elvis In Concert album that I have mentioned frequently throughout this Countdown.
It’s interesting that in one YouTube clip, Elvis apologises to the crowd, saying that he is going to have to read the words because he doesn’t know them properly. It doesn’t seem to worry the crowd … I guess that’s what happens when you are Elvis.
