Frank Sinatra: The Shadow of Your Smile

A song by Johnny Mandel and Paul Francis Webster introduced in the film the Sandpiper in 1965. Sinatra recorded it in 1966 with the Count Basie Orchestra (it's 80th anniversary this year) and Quincy Jones on the Sinatra at the Sands album.  

EBL: Sinatra at the Sands, which also included Fly Me To The Moon (here is the Sands version)

Mark Steyn has Fly Me To The Moon, the Bergmans' Ol MacDonald and Nice 'N' Easy,  Johnny Green and Edward Heyman's I Cover The Waterfront, and Jule Styne and Sammy Cahn's Just In Time.  

Bob Belvedere is into his top ten with Songs #10 through #6: Let's Get Away From It All, One For My Baby, I've Got The World On A Strong, That's Why The Lady Is A Tramp, and The Way You Look Tonight. Bob last week had Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer's Come Rain Or Come Shine.  

I had Autumn in New YorkAutumn LeavesSeptember in the Rain, Irving Berlin's Let's Take An Old Fashioned Walk (with the lovely Doris Day doing a duet with Frank) which also has a Jimmy Van Heusen's song Young At Heart. I previously had You Never Had It So GoodSeptember SongSeptember of My YearsCome Fly With Me, and Frank and Sarah Vaughan with The Nearness of You. Here is Sinatra's Where or When, which he also did (very different) at the Sinatra at the Sands show. I also had a couple of photos of Buzz Aldrin on Bella Luna (with a link to Mark Steyn).
