Au Contraire. He Tells us to live life our way, That Chicago and New York City are the best Cities in the World…



Au contraire, mon petit frere! If you want the best city in the world, you need to go to San Francisco. Tony Bennett all the way!

 

It is kind of funny that this conversation is happening, because I remember a friend of mine and I were once having a conversation about which "older persons" music we liked the best, and I went with Tony Bennett.


Thanks for the little brother thing. God, How I hate the French Language. What I find funny is that a 14 year old made this thread in the first Place.

I was guilty of putting down Sinatra in the past, but came to really like his '50s stuff, "Songs for Swinging Lovers" and such. He's not someone I listen to frequently but there's certainly a time and a place.

I'm not really a fan, though I suppose his music has its place. I certainly don't dislike it.

This was Apple 1. Only one copy was ever made, though I don't know how it came to be bootlegged. It was a present in 1968 for Mo Starkey's 22nd (!) birthday. Frank Sinatra with Sammy Cahn.

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.

Actually that's a very silly thing to say. People in this world have never listened to Sinatra. Does that mean they haven't lived?????

I've become a big fan of Sinatra lately.  Of course most of the people in this thread are not posting anymore.

As I get older, I care less about what is cool to listen to. I've actually started going backwards in time and listening to music from older generations. I find that Sinatra's music is calming, nostalgic, melancholy, and timeless.

Whether it came out this year or it's 50 or 60 years old, good music is relevant because its message is universal.

I can hear some of the same emotions in Frank Sinatra that I heard in The Cure when I was a teenager.

"One For My Baby" is probably my favorite.

I haven't heard a LOT of Sinatra's music, but I like most of his popular ones. I was reading a book on the Beatles coming to America, and one of the fans complained about the music before them and gave Frank Sinatra as an example. This bothers me because although I do like the Beatles' music a lot more and think their songs are more complex musically, I don't like putting down other musicians that have had successes. The person's argument was that before the Beatles, people were too innocent and the music was terrible. Well, Frank Sinatra did get arrested for "seducing." And also, it doesn't matter whether the music is terrible because you hate tonic chords. Basically what they were saying is that the Beatles were good only because they were better than what came before.

My point is, I like SOME of Frank Sinatra's music and do think he had a large contribution to music during his era--the biggest just as the Beatles were. And you can't deny those credentials.
