Frank Sinatra: The Lord's Prayer and Ave Maria

Frank does a great job with this song and given it is All Saints Day today (and All Souls Day tomorrow), I will go with this song from 1949. The music was done by Albert May Malotte and the lyrics by you know who.  

“I'm for anything that gets you through the night, be it prayer, tranquilizers or a bottle of Jack Daniel.” –Frank Sinatra. 

Here is Frank in 1945 singing Franz Schubert's Ave Maria.

Mark Steyn's Song of the Century (and for Halloween) at #79 is Me and My Shadow, #78 is Moon Love, at #77 is Strangers In The Night and at #76 is the Gordon Jenkins arranged This Is All I Ask.

Pundette has The Nearness of You at #19, Come Fly With Me at #20 and After You've Gone at #64

Bob Belvedere has the album Ring A Ding Ding for #6, Where Are You? for #7 and an interview with Chuck Granata. Bob had Me And My Shadow at #92.

I had Berlin's When I Lost You, Arlen and Capote's Don't Like Goodbyes, and Gaudio and Holmes' For A While. And I had a collection of Halloween Inspired Sinatra Songs.
