The old fashioned way - Charles Aznavour

Charles Aznavour was born in Paris, France on May 22, 1924. Often described as the 'Frank Sinatra of France', he's one of that country's most popular and enduring singers and also one of the most wellknown singers in the world. One of his signature songs is this romantic track, 'The old fashioned way'.

It is the English version of Aznavour's French song 'Les plaisirs demodes'. The single, released in 1973, reached number 38 in the UK singles chart and number 4 in the Dutch Top 40. Aznavour also performed the track in an episode of the Muppet Show in 1976.
