New United States President Donald Trump hasn’t had the best luck with music during his campaign and election.

Time and time again he would use a piece of music that would capture the ideals of his campaign only for the singer or band to demand he stop using it.  The Rolling Stones, Neil Young and Adele.  He also came under from former Beatle George Harrison for his use of Here Comes the Sun at the Republican National Convention which they dubbed “offensive and against the wishes of the George Harrison estate.”

Sir Elton John had some choice words after Trump’s campaign used his hits Tiny Dancer and Rocket Man without permission saying, “I don’t really want my music to be involved in anything to do with an American election campaign. I’m British. I’ve met Donald Trump; he was very nice to me, it’s nothing personal, his political views are his own, mine are very different, I’m not a Republican in a million years. Why not ask Ted f***ing Nugent? Or one of those f***ng country stars? They’ll do it for you.”

After his inauguration, the President and the new First Lady Melania will be dancing to another iconic song for their first dance as the country’s most powerful couple.  The song is Frank Sinatra’s classic My Way but the late singer’s daughter Nancy sent out a small “warning” to President Trump. The tweet, which has since been deleted, stated that President Trump should remember the first line of the song.

The line she is referring too is “And now, the end is near.”  She cleared up any meaning behind her previous tweet sending out a follow-up:

What Frank himself would have said, we don’t know, but it probably would have had a few choice words like Elton.

    Who the hell do you celebs think you are? Stop your sooking and get over the fact you didn’t get your own way.
    I am over a Hollywood because of your reactions. You are the enemy!

    • Jeanne  

      Totally agree . Democracy means the people decide who leads them not celebrities !

    • Jo  

      You think they’re sooking because they didn’t get their own way? Maybe it’s because they are ashamed of having a president who boasts about grabbing women’s private parts? How can that make them an enemy?

    Actually it’s Paul Anka’s song, he wrote it.

    Who cares it is a song for everyone to share. No different from everyone singing jingle bells. Get over yourselves

  4. Jacqui  

    What’s the point of ‘celebs’ putting a song out there other than for it to be listened to and enjoyed does everyone have to ask permission beforehand?

  5. Mary Knight  

    “My Way” was a song I chose to be played at my husband’s funeral. Beautiful words & very appropriate.

  6. Susan  

    Paul Anka wrote the words for ‘My Way’, but the music was from a French song sung by now deceased Claude Francois, the song was called ‘Comme d’Habitude’ meaning ‘As Always’ / ‘As Usual’ it’s a man singing about his callous wife who he sees asleep when he leaves for work and isn’t there when he comes home in the evening or some such thing.

    You are gubbed Mr Trump leave all the good music alone who actually wants you to use there music ??? No body or nae wan & thats from a Scottish lady your mother only lived in Scotland for 18 years ??? X

  8. OMG! Those “so precious” so-called ‘celebs’ should just be happy that some of their OLD music is still being played in the public domain.
