The singer is not a fan of the the classic standard most associated with Frank Sinatra, and he would cringe every time he heard it being played as he toasted a happy couple.
In recent years he has noticed Elbow's 2008 hit One Day Like This has started to replace My Way at wedding parties, and he is proud to be the co-writer of a track so beloved of newlyweds.
Garvey tells Q magazine, "It's always flattering... I never expected it, though I did always have the ambition of writing a song to replace Frank Sinatra's My Way because I hate it. That wasn't the intention with One Day Like This, but it's pushed it out at weddings which is great because his song is basically: 'I was a total t**t!'."
