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.

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.

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.
