I just don't see what's so good about his singing style...
It has no life in it...
Granted his voice was nice but Anka actually sings with some passion.
Same for Elvis...the guy had range...I mean listen to :
"An American Trilogy"/"Love Me Tender"/"You Were Always On My Mind"
Fair enough it's hard to compare the two...
But to me thre is only one winner by a landslide..Elvis.
As Sinatra had little to no range at all.
I saw a Documentary about the life of Elvis Presley-
And he done a duet with Frank Sinatra !!!!!!! have you seen or heard it ?
You say Sinatra was the best at what he did...but who else is in that genre ???
This is not my forte.
And Otis Reading was a man possessed when he sang...
Like I said he could sing...(due to his voice...not skill)
But the greatest ever...Hahahahaha
No life in his music? I think the dude sang magic.
Sinatra can be compared to cats like Dean Martin and Paul Anka.
This is the Elvis & Sinatra song:
IMO Sinatra is the better singer in this song.
I even dare to say he does a terrible job at singing my way:
Not saying he's wack either.
I like Elvis' Rock & Roll songs best.
It's all cool though, all the musicians we just mentioned were great. Sinatra was just a little bit better than the rest. lol.
