By 1960 Sinatra seemed to have eased up enough about rock to sing a duet with Music/ElvisPresley and nine years later "My Way" featured covers of "Yesterday" by Music/TheBeatles and "Mrs. Robinson" by Music/SimonAndGarfunkel. He also covered "Something" from ''Music/AbbeyRoad'' on a single, despite mistakenly attributing it to Music/JohnLennon and Music/PaulMcCartney instead of Music/GeorgeHarrison during concerts. Other notable covers on "My Way" were Music/RayCharles' "Hallelujah, I Love Her So", Music/JacquesBrel's "Ne Me Quitte Pas" (covered as "If You Go Away") and, of course, the TitleTrack, a cover of Claude François' "Comme d' Habitude", which has since then become Sinatra's SignatureSong and CoveredUp in too many versions of its own to list [[note]] the most notable being by Music/ElvisPresley and Music/SidVicious on his album ''Music/SidSings'' (1979).
