Frank Sinatra would have been 100 years old today. The crooner, best known for immortal tracks such as “Theme from New York, New York”, “Fly Me to the Moon”, and “Strangers in the Night”, led a turbulent life but has remained an icon among the music scene.
His late career Duets albums both revived and cemented his reputation as a legend among the industry, with artists from all genres eager to get a chance to sing with Sinatra.
One of my favorite songs is “My Way”, and not because of the Sid Vicious cover, but the tenacity of the original.
Another favorite, which I only discovered because I liked a cover by the duo Secret Sisters, was his (slightly creepy) duet with Nancy Sinatra, titled “Something Stupid”.
