Frank Sinatra: The Things We Did Last Summer (with bonus Shelly Fabares and Dean Martin)

A Sammy Cahn/Jule Styne song from 1946, that will be 69 this Friday, July 24, 2015 (I may be wrong on the date). 

Frank does a very good job with this song and it sneaks up on you. Another summer themed song, this one at the fair and lake instead of the sea and with some sadness and regret, that seasonally goes along very well with Frank Sinatra at the Beach.  

Here is Shelly Fabares version of this song, which is deridingly very different...
The palate cleanser for Shelly Fabares singing that song is Shelly Fabares in a bikini...

And here is Dean Martin's cover:

Pundette: Making Whoppie, The Best Is Yet To Come (with the Count of Red Bank, NJ, who also does a fabulous April in Paris)
Bob Belvedere: Numbers 28 through 26 , When I Take Sugar To Tea, Saturday Night Is The Loneliest Night of the Week (tie), Please Don't Talk About Me When I Am Gone, and Have You Met Miss Jones? and Honorable Mentions 5
Mark Steyn: Why Try To Change Me Now?I Have Dreamed, We'll Be Together Again and Mark looking for something "French Enough" for Bastile Day and (Ah, the Apple Tree) When the World Was Young (Steyn's Franco Sinatra Post)

Rule 5 and FMJRA

Lem/Troop: Who's That Girl?

  1. Miss Fabares, daughter of Nanette and screenwriter Ranald MacDougall, was the first to admit her singing voice wasn't.
