My Way is not an Anka tune. Just the title and over the top lyric (translation ) that sadly became Elvis' Swan Song.unclefester wrote:Just wondering if anyone knows if Elvis did any other Paul Anka tunes.....My Way is an obvious one...........uf

I think no-one comes even close to Elvis' natural singing voice except for the Irish postman (by the name of "James Brown") who released an album called "Gravelands" at the end of the 90's. I think the guy is still occasionally touring throughout Europe altough he hasn't been in the limelight that much. Funny thing is he's not really an Elvis impersonator like all the other wannabes who simply copy Elvis' singing style but just happens to be blessed with chops that sound eerily similar to the King's voice.
I've been playing "Gravelands" here at work and people kept saying "I didn't know Elvis recorded these songs". I've never been interested in Elvis copycats but "Gravelands" just cracks me up. Elvis doing Led Zeppelin, the Doors or Jimi Hendrix, now that's something you don't hear that often done so well. Anybody can train their voice to sing like the King when it comes to his hits, but few can go out of their comfort zone and do an entirely different genre in such a convincing manner, that requires some serious talent.

So was Elvis cashing royalty to Don't Be Cruel, All Shook Up, LMT and many "arranged by" royalties as well.... I have not checked about the lyrics translation but the MUSIC was already written by a European fellow (from France if I am not mistaken).unclefester wrote:Hey....it's my old pal JLGB.......tell us if Paul Anka has in the past and/or is still cashing royalty checks on the tune My Way......if he is.......I'll call it his song.....if he isn't please let the world know right here and now......so that any confusion for the past 30 or so years can be cleared up....and you're just the fella to do it......aren't ya?? .......clue us all in will ya?...........uf

Based on your original comment what you are saying about "cashing in" is DRIVEL. You have to be careful cause if you want to insult me ...then you should look if another person is adding similar drivel too! My answer?? TIC TIC TOC TOC TIC....TOC TIC>>>>>>>>>>>>>unclefester wrote:Hey JLGB......how would you like to answer the question I posed....in case you missed it.....I'll repeat it for ya.........is Paul Anka now.....and/or in the past........cashing royalty checks for his involvement in the tune My Way?....if he is.....that's good enough for me.....Pay To The Order Of_________......let's go one step further........is the orignal composer of the melody getting a cut of Ankas checks sent to his estate for his heirs........or has the melody been in the public domain for a very very long time?....try to answer the question and if you don't know......please so indicate.......... instead of adding a bunch of drivel..........uf
