    The studio version of My Way

    I have always loved the studio version of "My Way" even though you don't hear it much. I hope you enjoy this one.

    I tried to watch, says no longer available.

    I dream a world where man no other man
    will scorn. Where LOVE will bless the earth
    and peace its paths adorn...

    Played the song twice when it came out.

    And that's all.

    Not one that grabbed me; it seemed to lack impact (comparisons with the live versions notwithstanding).

    Good move not releasing it while Elvis was alive.

    It didn't work for me, Rosanne. I really want to see it...I love that song, it's also why I made a clip of it a few years back..

    It's obviously a matter of personal preference, but I agree with you Shelley. Some like it one way...others prefer a different version.

    I prefer the "Aloha" (January 14, 1973) version of "My Way". Musically, technically, nothing tops that version although I think that by '77 he truly sang it with more emotion and believed every single word - and that's the only thing that makes the '77 versions slightly better.

    The studio version of MY WAY is a waste of tape. Elvis sounded horrible and he knew it. When ELVIS NOW was compiled in late 1971 it was preferred to use HEY JUDE -which was also not too good- instead of MY WAY. Elvis just knew that he recorded a piece of crap and he knew he could do it better. He did!

    Wow I take it you did not like the studio version! Well I happen to really enjoy it. What is "crap" to one person is a "jewel" to another.

    In all fairness SP, we ALL think there is alot of emotion in the 1977 version because we know he sang it 6 weeks before his death. I've often wondered, if he had lived on if the '77 version would be considered such a "classic", OR if it's one we would be critical of instead?
    CBS played into that with the editing they did on this song. The camera angle of him looking into the camera with the lines "I've loved, I've laughed and cried" pulls at the heartstrings...IMO

    I think that's true

    to me the Aloha version was a lot better

    never cared for the studio version at all

    I've always liked the Aloha version,I can't watch or listen to the 1977 Elvis In Concert version of My Way but after hearing the studio version,I prefer it over the Aloha version now.Rosanne,you are right to each their own,I guess.
