youtube ^ | 1967 | Steve Lawrence

Whether I'm right or whether I'm wrong Whether I find a place in this world or never belong I gotta be me, I've gotta be me What else can I be but what I am I want to live, not merely survive And I won't give up this dream Of life that keeps me alive I gotta be me, I gotta be me The dream that I see makes me what I am That far away prize, a world of success Is waiting for me if I heed the call I won't settle down, won't settle for less As long as there's a chance that I can have it all I'll go it alone, that's how it must be I can't be right for somebody else If I'm not right for me I gotta be free, I've gotta be free Daring to try, to do it or die I've gotta be me I'll go it alone, that's how it must be I can't be right for somebody else If I'm not right for me I gotta be free, I just gotta be free Daring to try, to do it or die I gotta be me

“Let Me Be”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AiRuw7G0lP8

It’s sad that youtube has removed most of the higher quality music videos, leaving these poor quality examples.

I think it’s being used in a commercial.

At least in NYC it was.
Guy I knew back then was a piano player for a gay singer. When he had to play the gay bars, my girl and I would go to keep him company (free drinks too) Whenever the singer would do that song, the WHOLE bar would sing along.

(mid-late 70s actually)

‘Real American’, (by old time rocker Rick Derringer), is a real good one. I could see Pres. Trump making an intro to one of his speeches with it blaring out!

When I saw your thread title I immediately thought of Frank’s My Way.
