Saturday: Sinatra would have been 100

For me this was Blue Eyes's best song. It just took me decades to figure out how wise it really is.

Honestly, I don't know why, but Pop Culture Hero Worship was never my thing.

Elvis, Sinatra, Bing, Lennon, don't care.

But if you want to talk PATTON  :love:

If you cannot speak well of one of America's favorite entertainers, then please say nothing at all. Just shut up and let the rest of us at least acknowledge this man's amazing career and the stellar cast of people who surrounded him.

This is probably my fave.  So many great ones, though...  I Get A Kick Out Of You, Ring-A-Ding-Ding... unbelievable shootout.

The comedian who opened for Sinatra on many appearances tells the terrific story of the night Frank Sinatra forgot the lyrics to a song...and a fan up in the upper balcony had just the right remedy, at just the right time.



...But for sheer power of imagination, the vivid account of Dennis Miller's mother, meeting Sinatra just months before her death. This one's eight great minutes all on its own.

Sinatra entertained many.

His value is undisputed.

God Bless Him - he deserves Heaven.

I am too young (incredible) to appreciate him, but my approval is a pitiful thing.

Frank apparently attempted suicide many times. I am glad he never succeeded.

RIP

Sorry to throw a religious wrench in this but NO ONE deserves heaven.  "ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." (Rom. 3) 

It is only by the grace of God and His mercy that some are saved from what we ALL deserve!

Sinatra is certainly no exception!  :ohmy:

Our entertainers should be thanked and rewarded for entertaining us.

They are not Role Models.

75 years ago Lindsay Lohan would have been tossed into Bellvue or St. Elizabeth's for observation, not lionized for her bizarre drug-fueled lifestyle.

75 years ago, you probably bought your first record player. A Victrola wind-up with the movable arm....  :wink:
