Saturday Sinatra

Posted by

A quiet Saturday morning. Tired mentally from the writing of the last few days, I was also at a loss this morning for a decent blog post topic. Then, suddenly, this hit me: I had been listening to this song at one point (it’s on my iPhone with others of his) while working yesterday and again while emptying the dishwasher a little while ago.

Whether it’s a decent post or not is entirely your call as always, of course. πŸ˜‰ I’d had a look on YouTube and found this video for it, and it is more inventive than most: it cleverly edited in artistic, black and white, photographs. These are some examples:

So this version of “Strangers In The Night” by Frank Sinatra is well worth a watch as well as a listen:

Sinatra also famously hated this song. That no longer really matters. Millions of his fans (my grandfather was one: I remember his stack of Sinatra LPs) loved it, and in 1966 (amidst hits by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones) it reached #1 on both the U.S. and U.K. pop charts.

Hope you have a good Saturday, and a pleasant first day of August. πŸ™‚
