Frank Sinatra and Ethel Merman: You're The Tops with birthday bonus Ella Fitzgerald

You can't go wrong with Cole Porter and Frank Sinatra. Certainly not their best singing, but a fun television performance by Frank Sinatra and Ethel Merman

But my favorite performer of this song is Ella Fitzgerald.  Ella just nails the phrasing and lyrics (and tomorrow is her birthday--so happy birthday Ella).

Mark Steyn: Fools Rush InI'll Never Smile Again, and My one and only
Bob Belvedere: The Song is You (61 through 59)
Pundette: The very thought of you and He won't dance (or will he)

Don’t forget to also keep checking out
Pundette’s Sinatra 100 countdown,
Ms Evi’s Sinatra Celebration,
Dispatches from the Camp of the Saints Sinatra,
& Mark Steyn’s Sinatra Songs Of The Century.
It’s a swingin’ world.
