Kevin Spacey did an amazing job in the movie Beyond the Sea. His voice is incredibly close to Darin's. I never knew Bobby D. had such a difficult life until I saw the movie.

I like this cover, but you're correct; the lyrics posted here are aweful. aka WAY OFF from what is actually sung. I could understand the singer just fine. What was the issue here?
Report as inappropriate
I love this song, I think it's one of the best songs ever written. However the lyrics as written here are pretty inaccurate. I hope they'll be fixed.

The best song to karako too -esp. drunk

I think that our boy has done something rash,, and I like it.
