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.
Regarding "No Life In His Music" I'm talking about his technique...
I know how he is gonna sing on the track before I hear it...Like GZA.
I belive there are better technnical singers with a greater range of songs than him.
Granted he had something special...
I haven't heard much of Dean Martin but Paul Anka is better than Sinatra in my opinion...
His version of "My Way" is the best I have heard...diddn't he write the song as well ?
As for their duet...
Elvis killed it when he came in...
And he is doing Sinatra's style of singing...because he can.
His performance on "My Way" was in Las Vegas and I belive it was his last performance ???
I could be wrong...but his presnce on there is too much.
Play it from 1:45...you can see the emotion and pain in his singing...he moves the orchestra
Play it from 3:11...
I swear he destroys that beat
"Showmanship" is the only word for that.
I would say I'm differnet to you regarding Elvis...
I prefer those kind of tracks in general in any musical genre.
And Elvis does them as good as anyone I've heard...including old Frank...
This is probabally my favourite singing song ever^
I guess we will just have to agree to disagree..
I can respect him for what he has done...I just can't feel him like Elvis.
