An attack on JAMES, a question of course.
DO YOU KNOW who wrote the song "MY WAY"???
I know it belongs now to the US patrimonial history, because the biggest american artists covered it.
It is written, both music and lyrics, by a "French Singer & composer" named CLAUDE FRANCOIS.
The TITLE WAS and still IS: COMME D'HABITUDE (an English traduction should be LIKE ALWAYS.
During a holiday in France, Paul Anka was so impressed by this song, that he started writing English Lyrics, for this song. They met each other, Claude knew Paul, because his career started later (song : 1966?) and one of his heroes was PAUL ANKA. That song travelled to the USA, isn't it clever that Paul Anka wrote English Lyrics? so he had also a big piece of the cake. Once in the USA, every single crooner would have that song on his list, amongst them: Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra and yes,even the SID VICIOUS version.
Claude François died at the age of 39 (+ 1978) while replacing a lamp in his bathroom, but still in the water: real idiot to die that way, you could say he did it "my way", of course sad enough inspiring all comedians and jokes. The funeral was quit close and similar as RUDOLPH Valentino, impossible to count the people, and I remember me still all that hysteric behaviour.
I think, if he had written only this song, he would have so much money being the author.
