one from Francis Albert, and this is for you fellows. It really swings, too.



(Larry Stock, Russ Morgan, James Caranaugh)
[Recorded May 23, 1961, Los Angeles]

You're a nobody till somebody loves you
You're nobody till somebody cares
You may be king, you may possess the world and its gold
But gold won't bring you happiness when you're growin' old

The world still is the same, you'll never change it
As sure as the stars shine above
You're nobody till somebody loves you
Find yourself somebody to love

[very brief instrumental]

You're a nobody till somebody loves you
You're nobody till somebody cares
You may be a king, you may possess the whole world and its gold
But gold won't bring you happiness when you're gettin' old

The world still is the same, you'll never change it
As sure as the stars shine above
You're nobody, nobody till somebody loves you
So find yourself somebody, find yourself somebody
Find yourself somebody to love.

For you Frank Sinatra fans; I took the Chicago theater tour today, and one of the first signatures put on the walls back stage was Frank's. I even took a picture of it, and will post it when I get home after June 6.

I saw Tony Bennet in North York, Toronto. Amazing show and great acoustics because of the small venue. Though I thought his patter was all spontaneous, it was very much like like the cd!

I left my heart in San Francisco
High on a hill, it calls to me.
To be where little cable cars
Climb halfway to the stars!

What an evening. The original "class act".

I saw Sinatra twice in concert. It was a treat to see him perform in person. My mother was with me both times; she nearly fainted. She had a crush on him when he first showed up on the scene (way before my time).

Hi everyone, sorry to be away these past days but I was busy. Guess what? I am holding in my hands a CD of Frank called "My Way The Best of Frank Sinatra" and it has Summer Wind in it. Haven't listened to the CD yet, but will right now. Thank you for all your song recommendations. Very Happy

For you Frank Sinatra trivia fans; I did the Chicago theater tour last week, and one of the first autographers on the wall of the back stage was Frank Sinatra. I took a pix, so after I settle down, I'll post a picture of it. Just got home less than 2 hours ago.

@Chumly,
I guess the majority of music critics who claim that he was the best popular music singer that ever lived got it right.

@Chumly,
Not only did Sinatra have absolute pitch, when he was doing an album with Nelson Riddle, one of the best arrangers and conductors of his time, after what Riddle thought was a perfect take by Sinatra and the 78 piece band, Sinatra hollared to Riddle that "we have to do it over, someone played a clam in the reed section." to Riddle's embarrassment after listening to the retake Sinatra was right. Sinatra did have absolute pitch.

I joined this site just to set the record straight about Sinatra as a vocalist. First off, I am a professional vocalist myself, I don't need to go ask no vocalist or any trained classical singer about Sinatra's so called flaws. From the beginning of Sinatra's professional career, which started with Harry James band in 1939 to around 1954, Sinatra's vocalism was flawless. The long sustained legato phrasing, the beauty of tone, the intonation and of course his interpretations were right on. Around 1956 his voice started to mature, his interpretation skills got even better, he sang with much more emotion and his range increased. His main focus was shaping his new swinging and saloon style singing. His intonation at this time and through out the 60's, were not as perfect as his earlier years. His intonation was never bad, it was under pitched at times, and was used for an affect if anything. Again his main concern was not about singing every note pitch perfect, but to create a mood. After his retirement, the voice definitely changed, and as time went on, relied more and more on his interpretive skills. A great voice alone does not make a great singer. No other vocalist can tell a story like Sinatra, he is the greatest interpreter and master of song. In closing, in no way was his phrasing ever sloppy nor his intonation embarrassing, and forget about not having a range. His range went from a low E flat 2 to a high G#4. P.S I have mostly ever recording Sinatra ever made, along with an extensive collection of recordings by all the great singers from Sinatra's era.
