Frank Sinatra Greatest Hits! 1968 Reprise Recordings (B. Kaempfert, C. Singelton, E. Snyder) [Recorded April 11, 1966, Hollywood] Strangers in the night exchanging glances Wond'ring in the night what were the chances We'd be sharing love before the night was through Something in your eyes was so inviting Something in you smile was so exciting Something in my heart told me I must have you Strangers in the night Two lonely people, we were strangers in the night Up to the moment when we said our first hello little did we know Love was just a glance away, a warm embracing dance away and Ever since that night we've been together Lovers at first sight, in love forever It turned out so right for strangers in the night Love was just a glance away, a warm embracing dance away Ever since that night we've been together Lovers at first sight, in love forever It turned out so right for strangers in the night Dooby-doooby-doo..
Theme From Mondo Cane (R. Ortolani, N. Olierero, M. Ciacircolini, N. Nevell) [Recorded June 12, 1964, Los Angeles] More than the greatest love the world has known, This is the love I give to you alone, More than the simple words I try to say, I only live to love you more each day. More than you'll ever know, my arms long to hold you so, My life will be in your keeping, waking, sleeping, laughing, weeping, Longer than always is a long long time, but far beyond forever you're gonna be mine. I know I've never lived before and my heart is very sure, No one else could love you more. [musical interlude] More than you'll ever know , my arms they long to hold you so, My life will be in your keeping, waking, sleeping, laughing, weeping, Longer than always is a long long time, but far beyond forever you'll be mine, I know that I've never lived before and my heart is very sure, No one else could love you more, no one else could love you more.
First song from Fallout: New Vegas, Blue Moon by Frank Sinatra. Played at the teaser trailer. You can watch it by clicking here: www.youtube.com --LYRICS-- Blue Moon You saw me standing alone Without a dream in my heart Without a love of my own Blue Moon You knew just what I was there for You heard me saying a prayer for Someone I really could care for And then there suddenly appeared before me The only one my arms will hold I heard somebody whisper please adore me And when I looked to the Moon it turned to gold Blue Moon Now I'm no longer alone Without a dream in my heart Without a love of my own And then there suddenly appeared before me The only one my arms will hold I heard somebody whisper please adore me And when I looked the Moon had turned to gold Blue moon Now I'm no longer alone Without a dream in my heart Without a love of my own Blue moon Now I'm no longer alone Without a dream in my heart Without a love of my own
Originally from the Broadway musical "The King and I," this 1951 Sinatra cover is both tender and touching. Oh, Sinatra's version 14-years later for the Gordon Jenkins' arranged "September of My Years" masterpiece album is brilliant; still, this incredible reading is remarkably moving... Hello, young lovers whoever you are I hope your troubles are few All my good wishes go with you tonight I've been in love like you Be brave young lovers and follow your star Be brave and faithful and true Cling very close to each other tonight I've been in love like you I know how it feels to have wings on your heels And fly down a street in a trance You fly down a street on a chance that you'll meet And you meet not really by chance Don't cry young lovers whatever you do Don't cry because I'm alone All of my memories are happy tonight I've had a love of my own I've had a love of my own like yours I've had a love of my own...

As Sinatra matured musically and through life experience a greater quality and emotional depth colored his vocal artistry. Yet vivid shades of greatness can be heard in this aircheck of a 1944 "Your Hit Parade" broadcast. Even though the recording is a little rough you clearly can hear how smooth and tender Sinatra's youthful voice was. I can't stop singing this song... (No love, no nothin'--just sadness I can't shake...) No love, no nothin' Until my baby comes home No sir, no nothin' As long as baby must roam I promised her I'd wait for her till even Hades froze I'm lonesome, heaven knows But what I said still goes No love, no nothin' And that's a promise Ill keep No fun with no one I'm getting of sleep My hearts on strike And though its like an empty honeycomb No love, no sir No nothin' till my baby comes home...
I do not own the rights to this song. Lyrics Chicago, Chicago--that toddlin' town. Chicago, Chicago--I will show you around. I love it. Bet your bottom dollar you'll lose the blues in Chicago, Chicago. The town that Billy Sunday couldn't shut down. On State Street, that great street, I'd just want to say - They do things they don't do on Broadway. They have the time, the time of their life. I saw a man, he danced with his wife. In Chicago, Chicago, my home town. Chicago, Chicago--that toddlin' town. Chicago, Chicago--I'll show you around. I love it. Bet your bottom dollar you'll lose the blues in Chicago, Chicago. The town that Billy Sunday could not shut down. On State Street that great street, I'd just like to say - They do things that they never do on Broadway. They have the time, the time of their life. I saw a man, he danced with his wife. In Chicago... Chicago... Chicago. That's my hometown!
What Now, My Love? - Frank Sinatra & Aretha Franklin Duets I
Strangers in the night exchanging glances Wondring in the night What were the chances wed be sharing love Before the night was through. Something in your eyes was so inviting, Something in you smile was so exciting, Something in my heart, Told me I must have you. Strangers in the night, two lonely people We were strangers in the night Up to the moment When we said our first hello. Little did we know Love was just a glance away, A warm embracing dance away and - Ever since that night weve been together. Lovers at first sight, in love forever. It turned out so right, For strangers in the night.
"I Love Paris" is a popular song written by Cole Porter and published in 1953. The song has been sung my many artists including Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald but was introduced by Lilo in the musical, "Can-Can".
My way with playback.
REQUEST: My cover of "What Now My Love" is a popular song that had originally started out as a French language song, "Et Maintenant" ("And Now") written by composer Gilbert Bécaud and lyricist Pierre Delanoë. English language lyrics and the title were written by Carl Sigman. Though several US performers including Elvis Presley recorded this song; this version can be found on Frank Sinatra's 1966 album "That's Life". Thanks for watching and I hope you all enjoy!

Recorded in 1956, "With Every Breath I Take" can be found on "Close to You," one of Sinatra's great yet greatly under appreciated works of art. Sinatra's voice is elegantly flawless. The album's recordings are near perfection. Curiously, critics panned the record when it initially was released. Inexplicably, Capitol Records even held the CD out-of-print for 15-years. Trust me: the album is magnificent. Sinatra's incredible voice is at its mature best: clean, pure and full of emotion. He is principally--and beautifully--backed by The Hollywood String Quartet, a superb and serious group of highly esteemed musicians of the 1950s. (Violinist Felix Slatkin served as Sinatra's concertmaster of choice on most of his Capitol and early Reprise sessions; it was Slatkin who conducted the masterpiece "Only the Lonely" album recordings.) The album's arrangements by Nelson Riddle are equal to Sinatra's moving interpretations: delicate, sincere and heartfelt. (I don't know how I missed posting this wonderful song for as long as I did. I'm living the lyrics...) I think of you with every breath I take And every breath becomes a sigh Not sigh of despair but a sign that I care for you I hear your name with every breath I take On every breeze that wanders by And your name is a song I'll remember the long years through Even though I walk alone you guide me In the darkness you light my way And all the while inside me love seems to say "Someday, someday" And when I sleep you keep my heart awake ...
"Strangers in the Night" is a popular song, made famous in 1966 by Frank Sinatra. You can hear my wonderful new Christmas album at www.joolsscott.co.uk or http There's piano, cello, guitar, double bass, trumpet, lots of singing, cheer and jollity. Reaching number one on both the Billboard Hot 100 chart and the Easy Listening chart, it was the title song for Sinatra's 1966 album Strangers in the Night, which would become his most commercially successful album. The song also reached number one on the UK Singles Chart. Sinatra's recording won him the Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance and the Grammy Award for Record of the Year, as well as a Grammy Award for Best Arrangement Accompanying a Vocalist or Instrumentalist for Ernie Freeman at the Grammy Awards of 1967. The English lyrics were written by Charles Singleton and Eddie Snyder. The music was originally recorded by Ivo Robić for the music festival in Split, Croatia. Robić later sang the song in German "Fremde in der Nacht" and in Croatian language "Stranci u Noći". A thorough adaptation and an arrangement of the piece was done for Sinatra's version by Bert Kaempfert (who had included an instrumental version in his score for the film A Man Could Get Killed); however, this adaptation was taken to court in 1966 by composer Ralph Chicorel, who claimed that 24 of "Strangers"' 32 bars had been copied from his song, "You Are My Love." Chicorel's song, "You Are My Love", was the title tune of a 12-song 1965 LP ...
Recorded in 1955, "Look To Your Heart" is another beautiful performance by Mr. Sinatra; his voice, phrasing and breath control is, in a word, incredible--and he sings with so much emotion that you can actually feel it. Written by the great team of Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen, and tenderly arranged by Nelson Riddle, this often overlooked Capitol recording has always been one of my favorites. "Speak your love to those who seek your love. Look to your heart; your heart will know what to say." How great is that... Look to your heart, when there are words to say And never leave your love unspoken Day by day, we go our thoughtless way And only when we pray do we remember those we love Too late we find a word that's warm and kind Is more than just a passing token Speak your love to those who seek your love Look to your heart Your heart will know what to say Look to your heart today Too late we find a word that's warm and kind Is more than just a passing token Speak your love to those who seek your love Look to your heart Your heart will know what to say Look to your heart today...
Recorded in February 1955 during Sinatra's "I Lost Ava" period of devastating heartbreak, "What Is This Thing Called Love" can be found on the masterpiece "In the Wee Small Hours" album. The beauty of this Cole Porter classic is enhanced by Nelson Riddle's stunning arrangement. Sinatra delivers flawlessly with sadness and vulnerability that actually can be felt. Ironically, the tone, restraint and tremble in his voice makes his performance movingly strong... What is this thing called love? This funny thing called love? Just who can solve its mystery? And why should it make a fool of me? I saw you there one wonderful day But you took my heart and you threw my heart away That's why I ask the Lord up in Heaven above Just what is this thing called love? The song's full lyrics are: I was a humdrum person Leading a life apart When love flew in through my window wide And quickened my humdrum heart Love flew in through my window I was so happy then But after love had stayed a little while Love flew out again What is this thing called love? This funny thing called love? Just who can solve its mystery? Why should it make a fool of me? I saw you there one wonderful day You took my heart and threw it away That's why I ask the Lord in Heaven above What is this thing called love? You gave me days of sunshine You gave me nights of cheer You made my life an enchanted dream 'Til somebody else came near Somebody else came near you I felt the winter's chill And now I sit and wonder night ...
Recorded in 1959, I think this is one of the most beautiful recordings Sinatra ever made. The mid to late 1950s arguably showcased his best voice, which was filled with pure and raw emotion. Sinatra sings this delicately arranged song of lost love with so much depth and feeling that it's difficult not to be moved by his sadness and pain. For me, each and every word of this song rings true. And the name I will forever cherish? Natalie... Soft as a raindrop Fresh as the sea Warm as the sunshine shining on me This was my love, this was my love Light was her laughter Few were her tears Gentle her beauty Tender her years This was my love, this was my love So young, so fair, such bright golden hair A smile always on her face No other love can ever compare No other can take her place Others may cherish fortune or fame I will forever cherish her name For this was my love This was my love... Note: I mistakenly credited "Capital" Records in the video. The correct spelling is "Capitol."
Lyrics I've got the world on a string I'm sitting on a rainbow Got the string around my finger What a world, what a life - i'm in love I've got a song that i sing I can make the rain go Any time i move my finger Lucky me, can't you see - i'm in love Life's a wonderful thing As long as i hold the string I'd be a silly so-and-so If i should ever let her go
Recorded in 1959, and found on "No One Cares," one of Sinatra's premier masterwork albums, "Here's That Rainy Day" is a perfect metaphor of lost love. Haunting and full of despair, the song is perfectly expressed by one who was all too familiar with the heartache and pain of ended love. "Funny" how love becomes a cold rainy day? No, only abject sadness... Maybe I should have saved those leftover dreams Funny, but here's that rainy day Here's that rainy day they told me about And I laughed at the thought that it might turnout this way Where is that worn-out wish that I threw aside? After it brought my love so near Funny how love becomes a cold rainy day Funny, that rainy day is here It's funny how love becomes a cold rainy day Funny, that rainy day is here... Note: I mistakenly credited "Capital" Records in the video. The correct spelling is "Capitol." Oh, I also incorrectly spelled Gordon Jenkins' first name.
From one of Sinatra's truly great albums, "In the Wee Small Hours," this beautiful song aches with pain from the heart... I dim all the lights and I sink in my chair The smoke from my cigarette climbs through the air The walls of my room fade away in the blue And I'm deep in a dream of you The smoke makes a stairway for you to descend You come to my arms, may this bliss never end For we love anew just as we used to do When I'm deep in a dream of you Then from the ceiling, sweet music comes stealing We glide through a lover's refrain You're so appealing that I'm soon revealing My love for you over again My cigarette burns me, I wake with a start My hand isn't hurt, but there's pain in my heart Awake or asleep, every memory I'll keep Deep in a dream of you... Note: I mistakenly credited "Capital" Records in the video. The correct spelling is "Capitol."
From the 1958 masterpiece "Only the Lonely" album, it's my opinion that "Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out to Dry" is one of Sinatra's greatest recordings: it certainly is one of his most beautiful. Actually, when asked which Sinatra song is my favorite--it's impossible for me name just one, but who can?--this is among the top selections. Everything about it is heartbreakingly sad, yet touchingly and hauntingly beautiful. The enduring greatness of Sinatra can found in recordings such as "Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out to Dry"... The torch I carry is handsome It's worth its heartache in ransom And when the twilight steals I know how the lady in the harbor feels When I want rain I get sunny weather I'm just as blue as the sky Since love is gone, can't pull myself together Guess I'll hang my tears out to dry Friends ask me out, I tell them I'm busy I must get a new alibi I stay at home and ask myself, "Who is he?" Guess I'll hang my tears out to dry Dry little tear drops, my little tear drops Hanging on a stream of dreams Fly little memories, my little memories Remind her of our crazy schemes Somebody said, "Just forget about her" So I gave that treatment a try Strangely enough, I got along without her Then one day she passed me right by Oh well, I guess I'll hang my tears out to dry... Please note: I incorrectly attributed Nelson Riddle as the song's conductor. Concertmaster Felix Slatkin actually conducted the session; Riddle arranged the score. I further miscredited "Capital ...
Recorded and released in 1954, Sinatra's voice is perfect and light as he sings "Half As Lovely (Twice As True)"... If your eyes were half as bright They still would light my way If your heart were twice as true Then you'd be mine today That's why I often wish that you were Half as lovely, twice as true I'm only one of those who thinks of you and sighs Just another who knows your laughter and your lies I wish that you were someone who was Half as lovely, twice as true I love you, I love you, too much it seems For any fool can see With your heart so crowded with other dreams How can you dream of me? Though I pray the gods of love will make you care somehow Still I know the odds of love are all against me now But I might stand a chance if you were Half as lovely, twice as true Maybe if your loveliness were not so heavenly Maybe then I might possess the only one for me I wish that you were someone who was Half as lovely, twice as true... Note: I mistakenly credited "Capital" Records in the video. The correct spelling is "Capitol."
Recorded in March 1960--and originally found on the "Nice 'N' Easy" album, Sinatra is in perfect voice as he masterfully sings "That Old Feeling" with tremendous depth and, well, great feeling... I saw you last night and got that old feeling When you came in sight I got that old feeling The moment that you danced by, I felt a thrill And when you caught my eye, my heart stood still Once again I seemed to feel that old yearning And I knew the spark of love was still burning There'll be no new romance for me It's foolish to start For that old, that old feeling is still in my heart There'll be no new romance for me It's foolish to start 'Cause that old feeling is still in my heart... Note: I mistakenly credited "Capital" Records in the video. The correct spelling is "Capitol."
The greatness of Sinatra will always be that of his vocal artisty. And that is no more magnificently displayed than in this beautiful ballad recorded in September 1954. Just listen to his voice. I mean, really listen. My God, what a gift! How lucky we are... My love is ever you, My Love Now and forever you, My Love You walked into my lonely world What peace of mind your smile unfurled Yes, and because of you, My Love My wishful dreams came true, My Love In my uncertain heart, I am only certain of... How much I love you, My Love Note: I mistakenly credited "Capital" Records in the video. The correct spelling is "Capitol."
From March 1960 and originally found on the marvelous "Nice 'N' Easy" album, this version of "Fools Rush In" is one of my top favorite Sinatra recordings. His voice is incredible--as his is masterful interpretation of the lyric. Nelson Riddle's arrangement is equally beautiful and tender. If you did not already know how great Sinatra was, just listen to this song. Actually, try singing along. His breath control and phrasing simply cannot be matched. Oh, how I love this song... Fools rush in Where angels fear to tread And so I come to you, My Love My heart above my head Though I see the danger there If there's a chance for me, then I don't care Fools rush in Where wise men never go But wise men never fall in love So how are they to know? When we met, I felt my life begin So open up your heart and let this fool rush in... Note: I mistakenly credited "Capital" Records in the video. The correct spelling is "Capitol."
Sinatra. April 1953. Capitol Records. His voice and phrasing is maturing into its best. Mr. Sinatra revisited this song many times throughout his storied career. It's easy to hear why... Don't worry about me, I'll get along Forget about me, be happy my love Let's say that our little show is over and so the story ends Why not call it a day, the sensible way, and still be friends "Look out for yourself" should always be the rule Give your heart and your love to whomever you love, don't you be a fool Darling, why stop to cling to some fading thing that used to be? If you can forget, don't you worry about me... Note: I mistakenly credited "Capital" Records in the video. The correct spelling is "Capitol."
Sinatra's first recording session with Capitol Records was on April 2, 1953. This beautiful song was recorded the following month. His voice was at its best in the 1950s--and that is especially so on "My One and Only Love"... The very thought of you makes my heart sing Like an April breeze on the wings of spring And you appear in all your splendor My one and only love The shadows fall and spread their mystic charms In the hush of night while you're in my arms I feel your lips so warm and tender My one and only love The touch of your hand is like heaven A heaven that I've never known The blush on your cheek whenever I speak tells me that you are my own You fill my eager heart with such desire Every kiss you give sets my soul on fire I give myself in sweet surrender My one and only love... Note: I mistakenly credited "Capital" Records in the video. The correct spelling is "Capitol."
From November 1957, "Time After Time" is simply beautiful--and is among my top favorite Sinatra recordings. Just listen to his magnificent voice: it's tender yet strong; and deeply layered with true emotion. Even though "Time After Time" does not fit the theme of my other postings, at one time I did tell myself time after time how lucky I was to be loving her. Somehow through consuming sadness I still consider myself lucky to have loved completely. Well, I keep trying to convince myself of that... Time after time I tell myself that I'm So lucky to be loving you So lucky to be the one you run to see In the evening, when the day is through I only know what I know The passing years will show You've kept my love so young, so new And time after time, you'll hear me say that I'm So lucky to be loving you... Note: I mistakenly credited "Capital" Records in the video. The correct spelling is "Capitol."
From 1958 and Sinatra's darkest album, "No One Cares," his brooding and somber performance on "Stormy Weather" is stunning. Sinatra sings with pervading gloominess and despair as Gordon Jenkins' masterful arrangement with its deep, lush strings creates the sensation of dark, depressing rainclouds. It's all quite beautifully moving, actually; yet hauntingly and unbearably sad. Oh, and all too true... Don't know why there's no sun up in the sky Stormy weather Since my gal and I ain't together Keeps rainin' all the time Life is bare, gloom and misery everywhere Stormy weather Just can't get my poor old self together I'm weary all the time Every time So weary all of the time When she went away, the blues walked in and then they met me If she stays away, that old rockin' chair's bound to get me All I do is pray the Lord above will let me Walk in that sun once more Can't go on, everything I had is gone Stormy weather Since my gal and I ain't together Keeps rainin' all the time Keeps rainin' all the time... The missing verse is: I walk around heavy hearted and sad Life comes around And I'm still feeling bad Rain's pourin down Blindin every hope I had This pitterin patterin Beatin and spattering Drives me mad Love, love, love This misery's just too much for me Note: I mistakenly credited "Capital" Records in the video. The correct spelling is "Capitol."
Recorded in 1958 and found on one of Sinatra's greatest albums, "Only The Lonely." With despair, tremendous sadness and tormenting pain: "Good-bye." If only my heart and soul could find a way to say it... I'll never forget you I'll never forget you I'll never forget how we promised one day To love one another forever that way We said we'd never say, "Good-bye" But that was long ago Now you've forgotten, I know No use to wonder why Let's say farewell with a sigh Let love die But we'll go on living Our own way of living So you take the high road and I'll take the low It's time that we parted It's much better so But kiss me as you go Good-bye... Please note: I incorrectly attributed Nelson Riddle as the song's conductor; it was actually Felix Slatkin who conducted the session. Still, Riddle, who was on tour with Nat King Cole at the time, wrote the orchestration for "Good-bye" as well as the other songs found on the "Only the Lonely" album. I also miscredited "Capital" Records; it's actually spelled "Capitol."
A simply beautiful yet seldom heard song of lost love. Recorded in 1957, Sinatra's voice is at its vocal and emotional peak. Oh, how I can picture clearly the things I love dearly; and in the center she does reign supreme--permanently etched in every thought... I can see a steeple surrounded by people Oh, how real it all starts to seem Just as the choir is singing, my alarm starts ringing It's the same old dream And then my thoughts inspire a scene by the fire In a cottage close by a stream I know it all by heart now--we're about to part now It's the same old dream If you but knew How many times I pretend that I'm with you I'm sure your heart would unbend You'd see me through Until my dream had a happy ending And I can picture clearly the things I love dearly In the center you reign supreme We kiss and I discover I'm a lonesome lover It's the same old dream... Note: I mistakenly credited "Capital" Records in the video. The correct spelling is "Capitol."
Recorded in December 1953, Sinatra's incredible voice is pure emotion. It's steeped with pain, sadness and devastation--the kind that comes with being betrayed and discarded by the one you love. Trust me, I know... I could have told you, she'd hurt you She'd love you a while, then desert you If only you asked, I could have told you so I could have saved you some crying Yes, I could have told you she's lying But you were in love and didn't want to know I hear her now, as I toss and turn and try to sleep I hear her now, making promises she'll never keep And soon it's over and done with She'll find someone new to have fun with Through all of my tears I could have told you so I hear her now, as I toss and turn and try to sleep I hear her now, making promises she'll never keep And soon it's over and done with She'll find someone new to have fun with Through all of my tears I could have told you so... Note: I mistakenly credited "Capital" Records in the video. The correct spelling is "Capitol."
From 1955 and the incredible "In the Wee Small Hours" album, "I See Your Face Before Me" was recorded during Sinatra's "I lost Ava Gardner" period. You actually can feel his pain, suffering, despair and loneliness. Well, I can. Or maybe it's just my own... I see your face before me Crowding my every dream There is your face before me You are my only theme It doesn't matter where you are I can see how fair you are I close my eyes and there you are, always If you could share the magic Yes, if you could see me, too There would be nothing tragic In all my dreams of you Would that my love could haunt you so Knowing I want you so I can't erase your beautiful face before me... Note: I mistakenly credited "Capital" Records in the video. The correct spelling is "Capitol."
From 1955, another incredible song from the masterpiece "In the Wee Small Hours" album. Sinatra flawlessly and touchingly delivers "This Love of Mine"--which he co-wrote. The genuine hurt in his soul can be felt as he sings from the heart. He will always belong to--and with--his one true love: This love of mine goes on and on Though life is empty since you have gone You're always on my mind though out of sight It's lonesome through the day, but, oh, the night I cry my heart out, it's bound to break Since nothing matters, let it break I ask the sun and the moon, the stars that shine What's to become of it? This love of mine This love of mine goes on and on... Note: I mistakenly credited "Capital" Records; the correct spelling is "Capitol."
April 1953. Capitol Records. Sinatra. Nelson Riddle. Little Girl, I love you! How great is that! I love you I love you! Is all that I can say I love you I love you! The same old worlds I'm saying in the same old way I love you I love you! Three words that are divine And now, my dear, I'm waitin' to hear The words that will make you mine Little girl, I love you Can't you see I love you? I love you! Can't you see I love you? I love you I love you! Three words that are divine And now, my dear, I'm waitin' to hear The words that make you mine Note: I mistakenly credited "Capital" Records in the video. The correct spelling is "Capitol."
From 1957, this incredibly moving recording of "I'm A Fool To Want You" is one of the most personal and emotionally exposed ballads Sinatra ever sang. He first recorded this hauntingly dark and pain-etched song--which he helped write--in early 1951 during a dark and desperate period in his soap opera-like relationship with actress Ava Gardner ("The Last Goddess" was "the" love of his life). So great was Sinatra's grief and deep his despair over losing her that her attempted to end his own life on two separate occasions. Their intensely passionate and wildly stormy relationship has been well documented; it was one of the most dramatic and heavily reported Hollywood affairs in the early 1950s. At the time, the two were rage of every gossip rag. Sinatra and Gardner began their affair in the fall of 1949 while Sinatra was still married to his first wife (the mother of Nancy, Frank Jr. and Tina). Granted a divorce, Sinatra quickly married Gardner in November '51, but their fervent and volatile love was simply too hot and all-consuming and they separated in October '53. After a series of many failed reconciliations the two finally divorced in July '57--two short months after Sinatra made the posted video's recording. Nothing in life wounded Sinatra more--or gave greater depth and meaning to his art--than his affair and marriage with Ms. Gardner. Fool or no fool, there is nothing more wonderful than to love and be loved; yet there is nothing more overwhelmingly painful and ...
The lush orchestration of this recording deepens the longing in Sinatra's heartfelt phrasing. Recorded on May 1, 1957, during the same session that produced "I'm a Fool to Want You" (also posted on my channel), "Where Are You" is an emotionally raw plea from the heart... Where are you? Where have you gone without me? I thought you cared about? Where are you? Where's my heart? Where is the dream we started? I can't believe we're parted Where are you? When you said goodbye, Love What had you to gain? When I gave you my love Was it all in vain? All life through Must I go pretending? Where's is that happy ending? Where are you? The song's missing lyric is: Loving you was all that really mattered Don't know why you ever went away Gone is every joy and inspiration What's the use in trying to be gay? Even tho' my every dream is shattered I keep hoping you'll come back some day Note: I mistakenly credited "Capital" Records in the video. The correct spelling is "Capitol."
Recorded in April 1954, and originally found on "Swing Easy," Sinatra's second album with Capitol Records (initially released as a 10" record , it later would be combined/re-issued with the album that started Sinatra's incredible comeback, "Songs for Young Lovers"). "All of Me" is one of Sinatra's best classic recordings--and easily the song's definitive recording. Can't you see I'm just a mess without you? Geez, how can you not? All of me Why not take all of me? Can't you see? I'm no good without you Take my lips I wanna lose them Take my arms I'll never use them Your goodbye Left me with eyes that cry How can I get along without you? You took the part that once was my heart So why not, why not take all of me? Note: I mistakenly credited "Capital" Records in the video. The correct spelling is "Capitol."
In 1940, one of Sinatra's first recordings performing with Tommy Dorsey was the grief-etched "I'll Never Smile Again." At the time--during WWII--the song captured the pervading mood of the country. "I'll Never Smile Again" was the Dorsey band's biggest hit. It also was the first number one song on the first Billboard Record Chart. In 1982, the Dorsey/Sinatra recording was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Sinatra recorded this haunting and bittersweet ballad several times throughout his career, but none as mournful or moving as this May 1959 rendition. Even in sadness ("I'll never smile again"), there's hope ("Until I smile at you"). And hope is a good thing. Sometimes, the best of things. Oh, how I hope with all hope to smile again... Note: the widely held notion that "I'll Never Smile Again" was written by a woman whose soldier husband died in WWII simply is not accurate. The song was composed by Ruth Lowe following the death of her first husband; however, he died in 1938 during surgery to correct a kidney problem. Happily, Lowe would smile again: she remarried 6-years later. Ms. Lowe also penned "Put Your Dreams Away," which for several years served as Sinatra's signature song. I'll never smile again Until I smile at you I'll never laugh again What good would it do? For tears would fill my eyes My heart would realize That our romance is through I'll never love again I'm so in love with you I'll never thrill again To somebody new Within my heart I know I will never ...
My DVD at dvd.12FREEMUSIC.com - Mon DVD sur http Please comment on my video. Merci de poster un commentaire sur ma video. I love Paris by Cole Porter played on chromatic harmonica. "I Love Paris" is a popular song. It was written by Cole Porter and was published in 1953. The song was introduced by Lilo in the musical Can-Can. It is probably best known in a recording by Frank Sinatra. French music group Les Negresses Vertes covered the tune on the Red Hot + Blue AIDS awareness tribute album to Cole Porter.
