    Favorite Frank Sinatra Song?

    I am by no means a fan of mr. Sinatra, but I also cannot deny the fact that there was something very charming about many of his songs, for both women and men. I heard "Summer Wind" and "I'll Be Seeing You" the other day, and I found myself singing along, which is quite normal for me, even though I never listen to Frank. I realize that he didn't write his own material (credit goes to Gershwin), but he still had that special glow.

    What's your favorite Frank Sinatra song?

    apart from that I'm not to crazy about him. the one he did with his daughter was okay though, even though his daughter was what made it neat ~

    Sinatra is over-rated.

    Fly me to the moon, with all the way a close second. His rendition of moonlight serenade is also splendid.

    Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen ftw. This never really phased me though, to be quite honest. Granted, he didn't write all of his own material, but it was his selection, his effortless stlye, and ultimately his phenomenal voice that made the songs as spectacular as they were.

    also,

    I am not a real big Sinatra fan to be honest. He songs just seem kind of cheesey to me and not the good kind of cheesey that is fun and playful.

    My favourites in no particular order:

    Fly me to the moon
    Girl from ipanema
    They can't take that away from me

    I enjoy the majority of them, but these are the stand out ones for me.

    I think an evening of playing 4 player Mario Kart and enjoying a six pack of craft brews is totally more entertaining.

    Normally I'd say why revive a thread this old, but heyy, it's about Sinatra!;

    my favourite by him is I Won't Dance.

    That song that that one chick from Canada did with his voice, "All The Way". I think her name was Dion.... =oX

    This is Opeth - the best progressive death metal band EVER.

    I'm a Sinatra fan and I also sing his stuff (amongst others) for a living so it's difficult to pick just one but for this moment I'd pick a tune he did with Atonio Carlos Jobhim called Wave. Dig it.
    People don't always tell you what they're thinking. They just see to it that you don't advance in life.

    I have his entire catalog but the first song that came to mind was this one from 1954.

    "I’ve Got The World On A String"
