Frank Sinatra
« on: November 14, 2012, 04:39:47 AM »

I got to unpack some albums tonight too. Not the ones I'd like to be unpacking but a big box of old records. Someone who is cleaning out their dad's house gave them to me. I hope I can get this one cleaned up but if it doesn't play at least it's a real swingin' cover:

I hope it plays.  I have Songs For Swingin' Lovers, Come Dance With Me! and Sinatra Reprise: The Very Good Years on CD.  They are all good.

Ah!  Frank Sinatra's hat phase.  Many LP covers during his Capitol years featured him with a hat...

A few years ago I read about a HS principle who played Frank records during afterschool detention and was very successful in improving behavior!

I wonder how many of those students saw the light as they got older and listen to Frank now?

Plenty, I'm sure.  It's a phenomenon that has gone on for several generations...

Today, you'll find shows on AM, FM and XM radio dedicated to "The Voice."  There are even streaming internet Sinatra stations.  Here in the NYC area, Saturday With Sinatra on FM radio has been around for decades.

For any doubters of his exceptional talent, a simple two hour session listening to one of these sources will get the listener to "see the light."

My mom used to go on about him as we do the Beatles! Sometimes she would imitate him (try) and my freinds and I would laugh and mock gag and she would laugh about it. He gets the respect, he was up there with the best!

Yes, he's inimitable and was a master of phrasing.  His voice matured nicely as he aged.

One of my favorite Sinatra songs is one he did with his daughter Nancy...

When I was a kid, I didn't want to run out of the room when my parents played Sinatra records like I did when they played some other stuff.  So I thought the guy had potential.  ha2ha

Dude was a decent actor as well!

I'm a huge fan of Marilyn and Frankie sort of was involved with some nasty stuff to do with her, though he certainly wasn't involved in her murder.

I read once that John wrote 'And Your Bird Can Sing' because one of Frank's fave phrases was like, 'how's your bird' and stuff like that.

Yep, it was just like The Beatles...

On October 12th 1944 – Frank Sinatra opened his third season at New
York’s Paramount theatre. He was greeted by a huge crowd of fans,
mostly teenaged girls, When they refused to leave after the first show,
the frustrated crowd outside waiting to catch the next show went berserk,
sparking what became known at the “Columbus Day Riot “. It took 200
police along and 421 reserves to control the rampage.

I respect him and all, but I really can't stand listening to his music. It's not any particular thing, just the vibe I get from it - that serious, macho attitude turns me off. I guess I like my music to be more laid-back. To give an example, I prefer Robbie Williams' and Nicole Kidman's cover of Something Stupid. It's just....dunno, more fun to listen to. I confess to never hearing a full album of his though, just the ocasional song.

I can understand what you're saying Ovi. I have mixed feelings about him. I do really like a lot of his music but I don't think I would have wanted to ever meet him!
