Lagu “My Way,” Tidak Semua Orang Tahu Pencipta Aslinya….

Claude Francois

Mungkin akan terasa aneh jika ada seseorang yang mengaku suka musik “evergreen” atau jazz tapi tidak pernah mendengar lagu “My Way.” Lagu yang menceritakan tentang seseorang yang hampir mati ini, sebenarnya versi bahasa inggris dari lagu Prancis berjudul “Comme d’habitude” yang diciptakan tahun 1967 oleh Claude Francois dan Jacques Revaux. Lirik bahasa inggrisnya ditulis oleh Paul Anka dan dipopulerkan oleh Frank Sinatra di tahun 1969.

Paul Anka pertama kali mendengar lagu “My Way” dalam versi aslinya yang dibawakan oleh Claude Francois dan diiringi oleh Jacques Revaux ketika Paul berlibur di Prancis selatan. Paul kemudian terbang ke Paris untuk negosiasi masalah hak cipta lagu tersebut. Dalam salah satu wawancara Paul mengatakan “Saya kira rekaman lagu tersebut sangat buruk sekali, tapi ada sesuatu yang istimewa di dalamnya.”

Setelah kembali ke New York, Paul kemudian menulis ulang lirik lagu tersebut untuk Frank Sinatra dengan sedikit mengubah struktur dan liriknya. Pada pukul lima pagi Paul telah selesai menulis lirik lagu “My Way” dan Paul segera menelpon Frank yang saat itu sedang berada di Nevada, dengan penuh semangat Paul berteriak dalam telponnya “Saya punya sesuatu yang sangat spesial untukmu!” Saat perusahaan rekaman mendengarnya, mereka begitu bersemangat dan ingin segera merekamnya, namun Paul segera mengatakan “Hei…saya yang menulis liriknya, tapi saya bukanlah seseorang yang akan membawakan lagu tersebut. Lagu ini untuk Frank! Bukan yang lain!” Meskipun Paul Anka adalah juga penyanyi terkenal, dia mampu menepis rasa ego-nya dan tetap bersikeras bahwa lagu tersebut paling cocok dibawakan oleh Frank Sinatra.

Frank Sinatra kemudian merekam lagu ini di awal tahun 1969, dan lagu tersebut segera menjadi lagu nomor satu di Amerika Serikat, dan di Inggris menjadi lagu hit single tersohor yang belum ada tandingannya dalam sejarah. Itulah sepercik kisah lagu “My Way” yang mungkin sering kali kita nyanyikan di saat santai dengan teman-teman dekat.

    After that, look for your latest electricity bill and try to determine how much do
    you pay for per kilowatt and multiply it with the per kilowatt rate
    and you would have the exact amount of electricity and cost that your ceiling fan uses.
    It is safer to use the working hook to prevent any accidents.
    Do you want to avoid the risk of your ceiling fan shooting
    sparks all over your bed.

    People of Assam, Bengal, Kerala, Manipur, Orissa, Punjab and Tamil Nadu follow Hindu Solar (Sowramana) calendar.

    In the prehistoric days, Lord Sri Vishnu killed Hiranyakasipa and he was moving around in the forest, when Goddess
    Sreedevi came in the disguise of ‘Chenchu’ tribe lady to calm down the anger of Lord Vishnu.
    It is a matter of grave concern that in spite of being an
    art form that involves high skill labor and out of the world creativity and in
    spite of its huge demand in international markets and among discerning art lovers across the globe, the government
    in India isn’t doing much to encourage or patronize this slowly dying Dokra craft.

    I leave a response when I especially enjoy a post on a website or if I have something to contribute to the discussion.

    And after this article Lagu My Way, Tidak Semua Orang Tahu Pencipta Aslinya.

    | Suara Nada. I was moved enough to drop a thought 😉 I do have some questions
    for you if it’s allright. Is it only me or does it seem like a few of these remarks
    appear like they are written by brain dead individuals? 😛
    And, if you are writing on additional online social sites, I’d like to keep
    up with anything new you have to post. Could you make a list every one of all your communal sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
