Frank Sinatra Favorite Songs

 
 
EVERYTHING HAPPENS to ME
 
 
 
This is one of my all-time favorite of the many great albums by The Chairman of The Board, Mr. Francis Albert Sinatra. My good friend Jimmy Starace gave this to me for a Birthday present one year and I've loved this wonderful Sinatra Album ever since. The album comprises songs that were Frank Sinatra's best loved songs. His daughter Tina had the idea of producing album of songs that her father Frank Sinatra recorded that were his own personal favorites. Tina asked her father to pick these songs, and the album Everything Happens to Me was born. If you've never listed to the album and I'm sure you'll agree that this collection of Mr. Sinatra singing his favorite songs is a beautiful and poignant one.
This is one of the most interesting and successful Frank Sinatra collections out there. Everything Happens to Me avoids the obvious hits and collects a number of the finest ballads and torch songs that Sinatra cut while at Reprise Records during the '60s, '70s, and early '80s. It's a regal collection that concentrates on the darker side of Sinatra's art. Instead of celebrating a cross section of the Voice's career the way that so many compilations do, the album sounds like an elegy and has a strange cohesiveness considering that it's drawn up from material that stretches over a 20-year period. Sinatra had recorded the title track numerous times throughout his career, but the previously unreleased version included here (complete with new lyrics) is his darkest and most battle-scarred interpretation. Even considering its lighter moments ("The Second Time Around" and the lyrically downbeat but wondrously swinging "Summer Wind"), this is a stark collection that almost plays like an original concept album about confronting disappointment, loneliness, and ultimately, mortality. That's a lot to ask casual fans to embrace, but Everything Happens to Me ends up giving listeners who only know of the swinging Rat Packer more than a glimpse of the complexity and depth behind Frank Sinatra's art.

Caesars Palace 1978






The SANDS

HOTEL & CASINO

The Sands Hotel And Casino in 1959. Sinatra’s preferred venue during his early tenure in Vegas, he recorded the iconic ‘Sinatra At The Sands’ album here

The Sands Hotel And Casino was Sinatra’s preferred venue for many years (it was also where he recorded the classic live album, Sinatra At The Sands, for his own label, Reprise, in 1966), though in 1967 he changed his allegiance and began a long relationship with the newer and more grandiose Caesars Palace, a hotel and casino complex aesthetically inspired by ancient Rome.




CAEARS PALACE

Las Vegas


Looking at the footage today, we can see that Sinatra, then 62, was in great shape, both physically and vocally. We first glimpse him backstage preparing for the show while comedian Jackie Gayle is out front doing a warm-up act. Suntanned and smartly dressed in a tuxedo, Sinatra – with a glass of Jack Daniel’s in his hand – is laughing and seemingly without a care in the world as he chats happily with some of his entourage and poses for photos.

That same sense of relaxation pervades Sinatra’s performance, reflecting someone who’s self-assured and for whom singing in public is as natural and effortless as breathing. In front of hundreds of people, Sinatra is in his element, combining his gift for making lyrics come alive with a legendary onstage charisma that made women want to be with him and men want to be like him.

Frank pours a Drink. Jack Daniels on the Rocks.




JACK DANIELS FRANK'S WAY

RECIPE :

2 Fingers of Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey (2 ounces)
3 Ice Cubes
Water, just a Splash

Fill a Rock Glass with a measurement that equals 2 Fingers (2  ounces) in height of Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey.

Add 3 Ice Cubes. 

Add a splash of water, and "Drink Up" as Frank would say.



On JACK DANIELS

Many people think Jack Daniels is Bourbon, and many say it is not Bourbon. Technically, Jack Daniels is Bourbon Whiskey, but the makers of Jack Daniels chose not to call it Bourbon, and have labeled it Tennessee Whiskey to create a unique, site specific identity.

Sinatra - ALL My TOMORROWS

.  

.
"All My Tomorrows" is a 1959 ballad with lyrics by Sammy Cahn and music by Jimmy Van Heusen .    The song was expressly written as a Frank Sinatra vehicle.  It was introduced in the film A Hole in the Head where Sinatra sings it in the opening credits.
Sinatra later featured "All My Tomorrows" on his 1961 album All the Way. Sinatra re-recorded it for his 1969 album MY WAY , in a new arrangement which Charles L. Granata considers to be superior to the original, and which AllMusic calls "lush and aching". Rolling Stone describes the song as "the poignant monologue of a man determined to turn his life around".

"ALL MY TOMORROWS"


Francis Albert Sinatra


"All My Tomorrow Belong to You"


Listen to The Master at Work. Francis Albert Sinatra, the greatest singer of the 20th Century.
There is no one in the 21st Century, a Century of Crappy Music and Crappy Musicians (so-called) to campare to the great Frank Sinatra, not only the greatest singer of The 20th Century, but one of
the greatest singers of all-time. Listen to Sinatra sing this beautiful song written for him by the
great songwriters Jimmy Van Heusen and Sammy Cahn.

Sinatra's voice was in impeccable instrument, which hi conveys most masterfully in this wonderful song. And the musical composition and arrangement of the song is stunning, with lovely Violins, Flute, Harp,  and an expert orchestra, made up of top-notch professional musicians. Listen, savor the music, and enjoy one the greats, Mr Francis Albert Sinatra. It doesn't get any better than this. We're sure you'll agree.

Frank Sinatra Cars Collection

 



Frank Sinatra

1955 Ford Thunderbird




Frank Sinatra

1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II


In 1956, the Continental Mark II was a vehicle of luxury and it was twice as expensive as a Cadillac. Since Ford still lost money on every one sold, they were very exclusive.







Franks SInatra's 1958 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham


Frank Sinatra’s sizzling 1958 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham sold through Bonhams to its 5th owner in 2009. The Rat Pack King’s Caddy was made as one of only 700 built.

 The Eldorado Brougham, a $13,074 dream machine that was one of the most luxurious, exclusive, and advanced cars in the world. With space-age features like a self-leveling air suspension, power seats with memory, dual-level climate control, and cruise control, the Caddy was in many ways decades ahead of the competition. With only 304 cars built in ’58, it was the car to have in the late 50s. Sinatra loved them so much that he owned several, with one appearing alongside him in 1960s’ Ocean’s Eleven. Bonham’s sold one ex-Sinatra Brougham in 2009 for an undisclosed sum. 







Frank Sinatra's 1961 DUAL GHIA

His Pal Dean Martin owned One Too


With Chrysler running gear and a hand-built body made in Italy by Ghia, the $13,500 L6.4 was one of the most exclusive cars in the world, with just 26 produced – and most of them going to celebrities. Despite their price and exclusivity, there was something off about Sinatra’s car. He had celebrity customizer George Barris install a number of fail-safe components, including a backup fuel pump and brake circuits. Today, just 17 of the cars survive.







"You buy a Ferrari when you want to be somebody. 
You buy a Lamborghini when you are somebody." 

...  Frank Sinatra ....





Frank Sinatra's 1969 Lamborgini  Miura

The Miura is generally accepted as the World’s first Supercar, and it was impressive enough for Sinatra to take notice. So on December 12, 1969 – his 54th birthday – he treated himself to one. Personally ordered at Lamborghini’s Sant ‘Agata Bolognese headquarters, Sinatra ordered his mid-engined V12 Lambo in arancio metallico (orange being his favorite color) with a wild boarskin leather interior. 

Sinatra was so taken with his car that he allegedly said “You buy a Ferrari when you want to be somebody. You buy a Lamborghini when you are somebody.” Sinatra’s love affair with his Miura was short-lived, however. Within a few years, he had given it to a girlfriend, who quickly traded it in on a newer Countach. 






1975 British Racing Green Jaguar XJS


In 1975, Sinatra married for a fourth and final time to Barbara Marx. As part of their wedding, the two exchanged cars; Frank giving her a Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow with paint to match his eyes, and receiving a British racing green XJS.

Frank Sinatra's 1961 Dual Ghia



Frank Sinatra’s very own 1961 Dual Ghia L.6.4 Hardtop will be featured at the 2019 Las Vegas Concours d'Elegance taking place October 25-28. The vehicle will be heading down from the National Automobile Museum in Reno, Nev. for the inaugural event.

The Dual Ghia began production using a Dodge Firebomb V-8 engine and Dodge chassis. The Dodge chassis were shipped to Torino, Italy, to be shortened and fitted with Ghia bodywork in convertible form, under the name Ghia L.6.4. Upon completion in Detroit, Michigan, Dual Ghia then hand-picked the driver, Frank Sinatra. 

After purchasing the vehicle, Sinatra later personalized it even further and hired designer, George Barris, to make cosmetic changes including flush headlamps, wire wheels, a stereo and CB radio. The $15,000 L.6.4 was one of the most exclusive cars in the world, with just 26 produced. Today, only 17 of the cars survive.
