Tunes of Liberty: My Way (Frank Sinatra)

If there ever was an anthem of individualism, My Way is that song. 

Written in 1968, this English version of the French song, Comme d’habitude, was written by Paul Anka and popularized by Frank Sinatra. 

This song boasts the importance of doing things as to one’s own wishes, because, at the end of the day, you are all you have.

For what is a man? What has he got? 
If not himself – Then he has naught. 
To say the things he truly feels 
And not the words of one who kneels. 
The record shows I took the blows 
And did it my way. 

Yes, it was my way. 

This could also be tied into politics quite easily…
