The Wake and Aftermath
Elvis Presley‘s version of Paul Anka’s “My Way” goes Gold five months after the King’s death.
Elvis had included the song in the 1973 Aloha concert and sang it many times in concert, in the defiant spirit intended by writer Paul Anka (Canadian), and sometime in 1974, Elvis started singing it in defeat.
this single was taken from the 1977 Elvis in Concert TV – his last special and final shows.
“My Way” it reached number 22 on the Billboard Hot 100 pop singles chart in late-1977/early-1978 (higher than Frank Sinatra’s peak position), number 6 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart, and went Gold for its successful sales of over half a million copies. The following year the single reached number 2 on the Billboard Country singles chart but went all the way to number 1 on the rival Cash Box Country Singles chart. In the UK, it reached number 9 on the UK Singles Chart.
