Though Frank Sinatra made the 1969 hit “My Way” super-famous, the song was actually written by Paul Anka*. Sinatra owned it. He owned the song as he owned the vibe, and the message. Perhaps nobody in recent popular culture can convey the same Sinatra cool more than Walter White.

*Anka wrote the lyrics, but the music was based on the French song “Comme d’habitude,” which composed in 1967 by Claude François and Jacques Revaux. Little known fact: David Bowie also used “Comme d’habitude” for a song of his own: Though it sounds way different, “Life on Mars?” is in essence the same song as “My Way.”
Let The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain demonstrate:

One more laugh before the tears. A BB mash-up. Walter White sings "My Way". Think: Shatner doing "Rocket Man". Enjoy. http://t.co/wvdBmuw1QV
