Accuracy in a 'Way'

August 20, 1994

I enjoyed watching "Encore! The Three Tenors" immensely, but I'd like to point out some facts about the song "My Way," which was dedicated to Frank Sinatra:

The music was written about 25 years ago by Frenchmen Jacques Revaux and Claude Francois, with words by Gillis Thibault and Francois (who, unfortunately, died more than a decade ago in a bathtub accident when a hair dryer fell into the water). The English words were written later by Paul Anka. The original name of the song is "Comme d'Habitude," which simply translates into "As Usual."
