For You, Frank

As promised, Here is my Tribute to a Great man.
Sure, he had trouble with the Mafia, was under FBI surveillance for a few decades, and had a bit of trouble with Paranoia...

He is the one historical figure that I sneakily close my eyes to his faults and open my ears to his voice.

Maybe I love him because his blue, swooning, melt-y eyes seem to hold all the kindness in the world.
Maybe I love him because his songs, full of my childhood and dad, are subtly in the background.
Maybe I love him because he evokes the idea that innocent, simpler times are not as far away as we make them.
That his music is the reminder of of our original selves before we built a wall of grime and ludicrous distrust around us.

Don't forget to pause my playlist at the bottom, before you enter the world of Frank via this youtube video:


  1. I am a fan of this. Frank is a classic!!!!

  2. I LOVE Frank too. :) You're a cutie. I miss your crazy comments.

  3. I don't think I know you... but I found your blog from a friend of a friend of a friend and, well, I'm sure you know how that goes. I could just call it 'Blog Stalking' ...but anyways..
    I really like it!
    Plus, I am pleased that I am not the only one who finds Mr. Frank Sinatra so completely compelling.
    He makes November complete.
    thanks for blogging:)
