Comedian/Impressionist Jim Meskimen in this set under 5 minutes performs a dryly witty, intelligent impression of Sinatra doing a few songs from the White Album -- beginning, of course, with "Why Don't We Do It In The Road?"

(he also sneaks in "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window ")

I would totally dig a Frank Sinatra album where he covers Beatles songs. I like his versions of Yesterday and Something and just him a lot in general.

Honey Pie would fit seamlessly into Sinatra's category, if he were to sing it. Same with When I'm Sixty F

Was SO hoping/expecting the first reply would be "...it's easy if you try".

It's fun to imagine Frank doing "Dear Prudence " - at least partly because he'd be singing about his own former irl sister-in-law!

Other than that, I can believe he'd do a good job of Blackbird or I'm So Tired . Or Sexy Sadie , give it a bit of swagger. "Sexy Sadie /You wacky broad!"

I'd be interested to see what he did with Revolution 9 . Do-be-do.

I would love to hear Frank do the White Album , or basically any Beatles album. I would have thought Abbey Road or Let It Be would suit him best of all though with songs like Something (which he already covered), You Never Give, Let It Be , L&WR, Two Of Us , Oh! Darling , Octopus's Garden .

I hope you guys listen to the Jim Meskimen video -- he does a very good Sinatra IMO, and his choice of songs is what makes it comical.
