Speaking of Duets, Who Loves Something Stupid, his duet with Nancy Sinatra, his daughter?

As if it matters how a man falls down.'

I haven't heard that one before. I've really only heard the ones on the Duets album. (Because it's the only actual Sinatra album I own.)

After the Beatles released "Something" in 1969, Sinatra said it was the greatest love song of the last 50 years.

I have all the Sinatra albums from the 1950's which is my favorite period for him. All were released on Capitol Records.

Also, You are correct about 'Something'. Sinatra really loved that song. Also FYI, 'Here Comes The Sun' is still number one download on iTunes and 'Something' has now moved into the Top 10. It's great to see George with two Top Ten songs.

The further one travels, the less one knows

I agree with you mith, Frank is an incredible singer, but doesn't have enough soul for me. I'll take Nat King Cole in a heartbeat over Frank.


Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Nat King Cole …………………….. he's just AWESOME!! Have you heard him singing Boleros??

 

One day I woke up very early in a work day, and I turned on the TV. There was this story set in Hong Kong, with a woman with ethereal beauty dressed with amazing dresses and a man that reminded me so much of Richard Gere in his American Gigolo times.. and then bang! Aquellos Ojos Verdes sung by Nat King Cole in the background. I couldn't go back to sleep. I didn't finish watching that movie because I had to go to work, but the first thing I did was to search "Chinese movie Nat King cole". The answer was In the mood of Love. After work I went to Blockbuster, rented the movie, cried a lot and took my Dad's Nat King Cole's CD to listen all night.

That's how my love story with Wong Kar-Wai, Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung started. I've followed their careers since then.

 

 

(Sorry for derailing this!!)

 

Edit : I hadn't noticed until now that the moment in the movie when this song, Green Eyes is used, is perfect for that moment, because both characters become way too jealous of their spouses. Another reason to love this film.

Eh… No, it's not true. Beatles is my music even if they split five years before I was born. I can hear Beethoven or J. S. Bach talking to me through music, different things Bach is talking about the beauty of the platonic ideal world, Beethoven about the blood running through my veins.

Sinatra can't tell me anything about my life as Beatles do. That's the difference between classic and dad's music.


I wouldn't have said it better. We experience life in a diferent way, so we react differently to music.

 

Now this is a very funny clip that maybe you Sinatra fans will find.. very insulting. LOL!! But he's Pedro Infante. If there's someone bigger than the Beatles in Mexico.. that's him. 

 

Now, I have a beautiful memory with this song. My Mom was turning 50, and she felt she was in the top of the Everest. She asked me to play this song again and again while she was singing the lyrics in Spanish. (It was weird. She knew the lyrics in Spanish and every time she listened the song with Sinatra, she would sing it in perfect synchrony with him)

She was preparing food because all the family was going to get together to celebrate her birthday. She was radiant. She even asked me to buy some sidra. And I asked her "Mom, why are you so happy?" and she answered "Well, because I have this beautiful house, and I have beautiful children with a very good decent man. What else can I ask for?" and she hugged me. 

 

 

And this was the Spanish version my Mom knew. It's the great Raphael.
