Frank Sinatra: The September Of My Years

The seasons are changing (well technically September 23) in this celebratory Sinatra century year, and after a few Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen songs in a row, here is another great one to start off September.

Pundette: That Ol' Black Magic (I am saving that and other similar ones for the end of October), Call This Indescribably Good (she is featuring Cahn's Call Me Irresponsible), I'll Be Seeing You, The Coffee Song (the swinging version) and How About You?

Cahn, Sinatra, and Van Heusen

Bob Belvedere: Sinatra's Best 16-14, More, Sammy Cahn's Please Be Kind, and You Make Me Feel So Young, Sinatra's Best 19-17, Almost Like Being In Love, The Gal Who Got Away, The Tender Trap #2 (the film version with Debbie Reynolds), and It Happened In Monterey (Tie), Sinatra's Best 22 through 20, Nice 'n' Easy, I'm a Fool To Want You, The Song Is You and Don't Worry About Me (Tie)

Sinatra, Van Heusen and Sammy Davis Jr. (on his wedding day)

Mark Steyn: Angel EyesCome Fly With Me, Ebb Tide, Witchcraft, Stars Fall on Alabama, (Love Is) The Tender Trap, Learnin' the Blues and In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning. And of course, Mark's Sammy Cahn post and podcast: Ain't That A Kick

  1. I like "Nobody Wins" by Kris Kristofferson, written about his first divorce. Fourth cut on "Ol' Blue Eyes Is Back" in 1973, I think of him and Ava when I hear him sing this. Next track is "Send in the Clowns." Listening them back-to-back reminds you why he is the world's greatest saloon singer.
