Hmm, another good point, didn't relisten... This might be like Etta James' At last or Nina Simone's Feeling good, eventhough those were covers, still people cover Etta & Nina's renditions... Some covers were just too good I guess :) & Indeed Frank Sinatra seems to be the way to go for the Bublés/Westlifes/Robbie Williamses of this world.
No Buble covered Sinatra's version. Even though Newton was the first to record it, if you listen to it, Buble copies Sinatra's vocals. And I think anyone with even a passing knowledge of Buble - such as myself - knows that he wants to be like Sinatra. Newton not so much.
Thanks Jay, you're right, I'll report it... When I saw this comment I just KNEW Walter had something to do with this... He always finds originals I never did... I always let myself be fooled by Wiki... sometimes the first sentence is: "first recorded by BLABLA" and then halfway down the page, there's a totally different name as original artist... Thank god for Walter and his knowledge of old/classic music ;)
Looks like this has to be changed. Frank Sinatra's version is a cover.
