Everything Happens to Me

 
EVERYTHING HAPPENS to ME
 
 
 
This is one of my all-time favorite of the many great albums by The Chairman of The Board, Mr. Francis Albert Sinatra. My good friend Jimmy Starace gave this to me for a Birthday present one year and I've loved this wonderful Sinatra Album ever since. The album comprises songs that were Frank Sinatra's best loved songs. His daughter Tina had the idea of producing album of songs that her father Frank Sinatra recorded that were his own personal favorites. Tina asked her father to pick these songs, and the album Everything Happens to Me was born. If you've never listed to the album and I'm sure you'll agree that this collection of Mr. Sinatra singing his favorite songs is a beautiful and poignant one.
This is one of the most interesting and successful Frank Sinatra collections out there. Everything Happens to Me avoids the obvious hits and collects a number of the finest ballads and torch songs that Sinatra cut while at Reprise Records during the '60s, '70s, and early '80s. It's a regal collection that concentrates on the darker side of Sinatra's art. Instead of celebrating a cross section of the Voice's career the way that so many compilations do, the album sounds like an elegy and has a strange cohesiveness considering that it's drawn up from material that stretches over a 20-year period. Sinatra had recorded the title track numerous times throughout his career, but the previously unreleased version included here (complete with new lyrics) is his darkest and most battle-scarred interpretation. Even considering its lighter moments ("The Second Time Around" and the lyrically downbeat but wondrously swinging "Summer Wind"), this is a stark collection that almost plays like an original concept album about confronting disappointment, loneliness, and ultimately, mortality. That's a lot to ask casual fans to embrace, but Everything Happens to Me ends up giving listeners who only know of the swinging Rat Packer more than a glimpse of the complexity and depth behind Frank Sinatra's art.

Best Yet To Come Sinatra

"Ahh SALUTE" !!!
 
FRANK raises a glass to many adoring fans.
 
 
This picture reminds me of the 7 GLORIOUS TIMES I was fortunate enough to see the Great Man perform Live and in Concert ..
 
There was nothing quite like seeing Frank Sinatra in Concert ... The shows were electrifying, the air filled with excitement from the many adoring fans, to be there amongst a few thousand other like minded people, very special people "Wonderful Adoring Fans of The Great One FRANCIS ALBERT SINATRA," for there was never and there will never be another quite like Frank and his legions of loving fans, and I'm so proud to say I was one of them.
 
Yes the rooms that Sinatra performed live in were filled with Electricity and it wasn't just Frank, it was his fans as well and the back and forth love and adulation that went on between Frank and his fans during every one of these special nights. Sinatra was the ultimate performer and without question the greatest singer of the 20th Century, nobody could touch Sinatra,    "No One!"
 
Frank would come out on stage and the place would explode with applause, love, and adulation. The fans welcome Frank into the house and Frank reciprocated, there was nothing like it my friends (to see Sinatra live). Yes Frank always gave us a most warm welcome and we back to him. Then the show would began. Frank always was back by the most amazingly perfect orchestras that backed up his unmatched singing and there you go another night of one of the greatest happenings on God's Good Earth, a Live Concert by The Chairman of The Board Mr. Francis Albert Sinatra, the great one. Basta !

Satisfy Me One More Time

 
FRANK SINATRA
 
 
SOME NICE THINGS I'VE MISED
 
 
 
 
 
 
LYRICS
 
Don't deny me, satisfy me one more time
Barricade me and invade me, just one more time
Sacrifice me, don't be nice, be wild and free
Make a sex-pot symbol out of little old me
 
Caress me, molest me, one more time
Misuse me and abuse me one more time
Excite me and ignite me with your sweet torso
Use your muscles, my corpuscles, wanna go
 
Assault me, attack me, lose control
Let's smother each other in a good old strangle-hold
There's nothing but loving on my mind
Don't deny me, satisfy me one more time
 
Compromise me, vandalize me, have a ball
Destroy me and enjoy me through it all
Demolish, disassemble and dismantle my apparel
If a birthday suit ain't cute ill wear a barrel
 
Bite my ears, baby, nibble on my nose
Let your dimples put goose pimples on my toes
There's sugar oozing over from my elbows to my knees
So cover me with kisses, get yourself some calories
 
If you don't want me climbing up the wall
Don't fool around my fertile ground at all
While the cold is getting colder, just be sure
Everything we got is body temperature, warm it up
 
They're still a lot of groovy goodies left
When you reach the cookie jar, just help yourself
There ain't nothing, but loving on my mind
Don't deny me, satisfy me one more time
Encore, encore, encore
