Sammy Davis Jr. Wants To Play DJ & Do It His Way

Sammy's calling all his pallies up to see if anybody wants to come over and listen to some tunes. I'm up for it. What about you?

I found this tribute video dedicated to Sammy. What makes this video so awesome is that it features Sammy's hip version of My Way. I'm sure a lot of people have heard Frank Sinatra and/or Elvis Presley perform this song. Sammy goes a totally different route with his rendition of this tune.

I actually like it! i never really cared to much for Elvis's. And Well, Frank can never go wrong with me. --why am i talking like i know these people? --i just admire them so much, they are "friends in my head" as Wendy Williams would say. lol

JamiSings said...

I'm always up to hear some tunes spun by Sammy.

I really wish I could've seen him perform just once.

Nancy Sinatra Fan said...

I would most certainly love to hang out with you guys. I'm sure Sammy would be a very cool dj. I love his cover of My Way. I had never heard it before. It's totally different from what Frank or Elvis did.

Keith said...

Hey Autumn. Thanks. I thought his version of My Way was very cool. Frank knocks that song out of the ballpark. I do like Elvis' version, but Frank always did it better to me. Don't worry about it. They are friends in my head too. lol

Keith said...

Hey Jami. Thanks for commenting. I love hearing Sammy tunes. I always regret that I never got a chance to see him perform.

Keith said...

Hey Phoebe. Thanks. I'm sure that Sammy would spin some cool tunes. I'm glad you enjoyed his take on My Way. I thought it was very cool and hip. Cheers!

Sam said...

Super cool - Sammy was one in a million! I will look forward to watching this at home this evening - thank you Keith for the post!!

Protege said...

This was absolutely cool, I LOVE this version. That is an incredible take on a classic!;)) Thank you for sharing, I thoroughly enjoyed this.;)

Sammy Davis jr on the turntable = awesome.

Wolf Boy said...

I like that too. I don't think I had ever heard it before. It was neat to hear another interpretation of the song.

Keith said...

Hey Sam. Thanks so much. I really hope you enjoy it. I loved hearing Sammy's take on this classic tune.

Keith said...

Hey Protege. Thank you. I'm so happy you enjoyed it. I thought it was really coo. It was awesome to hear someone do this song differently and not just rehash it.

Keith said...

Hey Scott. I know what you mean. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Wolf. I'm glad I could share it with you. Sammy does quite the hip version of this tune.

As we all know Sammy has a killer record collection, always great fun to get a call from Sammy to come over and spin some platters with him.

Keith said...

Hey Drake. I totally know what you mean. Nothing like hanging out with Sam and listening to some cool tunes.

For a small guy. He was sure big on talent!

Hey Gingey. Oh yeah. He might have been small in weight and height, but he was large in talent.

FilmFather said...

I love Sammy, and I have NEVER heard his version of "My Way" like that before! Sounds like late '60s, early '70s...?

Does anybody know what album it's from, or where I can get it?

FilmFather said...

Never mind...I just jumped to the YouTube page for that video and got my answer:

SAMMY PICTURE SHOW WITH HIS "MY WAY" FROM THE 1970 MOTOWN LP "SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE"
