Don’t miss this recording of “Something Stupid” sung by father and daughter combo Frank and Nancy Sinatra.
I practice every day to find some clever lines to say
To make the meaning come through
But then I think I’ll wait until the evening gets late and I’m alone with you
The time is right, your perfume fills my head, the stars get red and, oh, the night’s so blue
And then I go and spoil it all by saying something stupid like “I love you”
The clip features photos of both music superstars from various points of their career.
Check out this fan video for Frank Sinatra’s beloved song “There used to Be a Ballpark”.
Now the children try to find it
And they can’t believe their eyes
`cause the old team just isn’t playing
And the new team hardly tries
And the sky has got so cloudy
When it used to be so clear
And the summer went so quickly this year
Yes, there used to be a ballpark right here
The audio clip used for this video is from a live performance of the song taken in April 8, 1974 from Carnegie Hall.
Frank Sinatra sings “Pennies from Heaven” in this memorable performance at the Royal Festival Hall in London
“Every time it rains, it rains pennies from heaven
Don’t you know each cloud contains pennies from heaven?
You’ll find your fortune’s fallin’ all over the town
Be sure that your umbrella is upside down”

Don’t miss Frank Sinatra’s peppy recording of “The One I Love Belongs To Somebody Else”
“The one I love belongs to somebody else
She means her tender songs for somebody else
And even when I have my arms around her
I know her thoughts are strong for somebody else
The hands I held belong to somebody else
I’ll bet they’re not so cold to somebody else”
