I am not big fan of Pop Standards, but there are few good songs out there from that genre that I do enjoy. Like Sinatra's song "New York new York" or "Fly Me To The Moon".

Anybody recommend other songs from Sinatra that I need to check out :)

Yes. Just buy a copy of Sinatra Live At The Sands. I'm fairly sure you'll like it especially Night And Day and I've Got You Under My Skin. Frank and The Count Basie Orchestra sound fabulous.

I've been a big Sinatra fan for years. IMO New York, New York is one of the weakest songs he ever did.

I've always thought Tony Bennett did the definitive version The Best Is Yet To Come. Summer Wind, yep, that's all Sinatra.

Listen to both Summerwind and Best Yet to Come, and Summerwind was slightly more to my liking.

Also listened to Live At Sands and that is pretty good album. Where most of time Sinatra music is second to his voice, in this album the music is given equal footing.

It Was a Very Good Year, another vote for Summer Wind, Something Stupid (duet with daughter Nancy), That's Life, The Lady is a Tramp, Nice n Easy, another vote for I've Got zyou Under My Skin, I Get a Kick Out of You (which you might recognize from that hilarious scene in Blazing Saddles).

Second the recommendations of something Stupid, Fly Me To the Moon and The Best is Yet to Come.

I'll also add It Had to Be You, The Best Is Yet To Come and one campy song that is part of the soundtrack of my life - High Hopes.

For some reason, when I am feeling really happy, the chorus comes to my mind, and sometimes even to my lips.

But he's got high hopes, he's got high hopes
Hes got high apple pie, in the sky hopes

So any time your gettin low
Stead of lettin go
Just remember that ant
Oops there goes another rubber tree plant (repeat x 3)


PS: Its still cool to have Sinatra playing when you invite a lady over for drinks. Not a girl, or a broad . . . but a lady!
