Musica for your week: Frank Sinatra
Ok, so I’ve managed to do this two weeks in a row, yay me! So, for my second week, I mos def had to feature Mr. Frank Sinatra. I have no idea how I came to be such a fan of his, but it happened sometime in high school. I suppose one could possibly say I was slightly obsessed. I own his cds, many many of his movies, and have about 8 or 9 framed photographs of him.
His music is just beautiful, I adore his voice. One of my favorite songs of his is “Just one of those things” which I heard in the movie Young at Heart with Doris Day. Here’s that clip from the movie, love LOVE it:
Of all the albums of his I own, I’d say Classic Sinatra: His Greatest Performances 1953-1960 is my all around favorite. I love the flow of the album, the songs, just, everything about it. So if you’re new to the Sinatra experience, I would recommend starting with this album.
As for his movies, these are my faves:
A clip from The Tender Trap: (not the best visual quality, but oh’s well!)
Here’s a clip from the movie Young at Heart with Doris Day, my fave movie of his!
And some of my favorite songs, all videos are from YouTube:
Luck Be A Lady Tonight:
Fly Me To The Moon:
I’ve Got You Under My Skin:
I could easily go on and on and on, but check him out for yourself, both his music, and his movies. Enjoy!
