a 1946 song sung by Frank Sinatra, who died on May 14 in 1998 at age 82 of a heart attack after suffering several years of declining health. He lived a long and full life, receiving many awards, is one of the best-selling musical artists of all time, and was successful both in his music and film careers. He was married 4 times, had 3 children, and died a practicing Catholic.
He is reported to have said, "I would like to be remembered as a man who had a wonderful time living his life, and who had good friends, a fine family. I don't think I could ask for anything more than that, actually." I can't think of a better way to be remembered.

A very clever find for T Tuesday!ReplyDelete
My daughter had a boy in her kindergarten class named Frank Sinatra. When she came home and told me about Frank, I had a hard time believing that she was correct about his name. Although I went to HS with a Holly Wood. :)ReplyDelete
Happy T day!
Holly Wood?! Sometimes I hafta wonder what parents are thinking when they name their children lolDelete
Golden voice! I also think he was a really great actor. Less gifted in being a husband, I imagine... still, gotta love ´im! ;-)ReplyDelete
Yes, that voice! Commitment issues, maybe. He did wander.Delete
You always share such interesting info. I did not know this song. Thanks for sharing and a happy T day!ReplyDelete
I hadn't heard this one, either. I just happened across it.Delete
What a fun song and Frank's quote is just perfect too making me think of my sweet friend Lennie.ReplyDelete
I can hear her saying the same.
Thank you for your nice comment today.
Happy T Day
It's hard to lose someone. I thought the Sinatra quote showed a good spirit, and I can see how his family would've been comforted by it afterwards.Delete
What a great song. He was a real crooner, wasn't he? Although I never cared for that type of music in my early years, I am far more tolerant now, as diversity is the key. and of course, I love how you find such wonderful and diverse things to share with us for T each week.ReplyDelete
Thanks for joining us and sharing Frank's great quote with us for T this Tuesday.
I don't know how I missed this song as it's been widely covered. Even the Muppets have done it lolDelete
Love the song!ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing!
Glad you liked it. Novelty songs can be fun :)Delete
Thanks for the toe tapping music. I didn't recognize the title but once the music started it was familiar. Since I like my coffee so much maybe I should move, LOL!ReplyDelete
With the Olympics coming up, you'd have a good seat :)Delete
oh, this is a fun song! I've never heard it before, and enjoyed the lyrics included too! happy T day!ReplyDelete
Those were the days lol when there was too much coffee!Delete
Oh what a skilful post, great way to link with Elizabeth. A lovely clip too...I think Mr Sinatra's Sentiment about his life and accomplishments rings very true for lots of us.ReplyDelete
PERFECT!! I love Ol' Blue Eyes. Many thanks for this song. Only he could make a song about various beveridges sound sexy, lol. Happy T Day :DReplyDelete
Goodness! I didn't know I had heard this song before, but I recognized it and I wasn't born till 1951. Must still have been on the radio sometimes when my mom had the radio on. :):)ReplyDelete
Happy T-Day! :)
Gotta love Frank!! My MIL was a big fan and was fortunate to have met him several times as she worked with one of his aunts in a candy factory on long island. She would play his music all the time and this has brought back many happy memories of her life so thank you fro sharing!!!ReplyDelete
