What can I say about Ol’ Blues Eyes that hasn’t been said? How about this. We have Frank Sinatra on Sunday Jams. That might be the first time that sentence has ever been typed, so I guess it’s a first. Now to get serious for a minute. I love Sinatra. I could write an essay right now. But that’s not why we’re here. We’re here for the music. So we’ll stick to that.
I will only add this. Almost all of Frank’s hits were cover songs. They had already been “hit” records. Frank Sinatra would release his cover version and it would be so strong that it became the standard. That’s insane. That is incredible. No one comes close to that now. Don’t think anyone ever will. Imagine someone covering a Justin Bieber song and having the cover completely eclipse the original. Frank did that one a regular basis. That’s incredible. He was one of a kind. Here’s three songs.
