Sinatra was one of the greatest entertainers in history.  He was a ladies’ man and a man’s man. Ladies wanted to be with him, and guys wanted to be him.  He was and still is the essence of cool.  We need another Frank Sinatra in today’s world.

What’s amazing about Frank Sinatra is how he sang with such bravado, yet his music also conveyed deep feeling and tenderness. When you listen to Frank sing, you believe him.  Go ahead, put on “In The Wee Small Hours of the Morning” then tell me you doubt Frank.  On top of that, he had a great sense of humour.

Like any other guy, Frank had his faults, but the passion that comes through in his songs is still as fresh and powerful as ever.  He’s one of a kind, just like Judy.   When you listen to his voice, you can’t help but be struck by how he appears so casual and relaxed yet able to achieve such amazing control.

Sinatra’s music calls to mind smoky rooms and a world where booze flowed freely and times were simpler.

Having a drink and listening to Sinatra is like a meditation in gentlemanliness.  And, it transports you to an era when the world seemed to make a lot more sense.

He always said that at heart he was just a “glorified saloon singer.”  And his music calls to mind smoky rooms and a world where the cocktails ran freely and times were simpler.  A time when we didn’t know about terrorism, when “social networks” were barbershops, bars and churches, and when energy drinks and tofurkey didn’t exist.

As you drink, you’ll experience notes in Sinatra’s voice in the libations: bitterness, sweetness, starkness.

Suggested Frank Sinatra Songs For Your Moment

A few Sinatra songs, like:

•  Come Fly with Me
•  I’ve Got You Under My Skin
•  My Way
•  The Way You Look Tonight
•  Satisfy Me One More Time
•  Maybe This Time
•  Witchcraft
•  Very Good Year

◆  Make yourself a nice cocktail : Some sort of whiskey on the rocks. Frank’s drink was reportedly Jack Daniels on the rocks, but if you want to have single malt scotch instead, that works fine.   I’ll take the Dean Martin route with a martini, straight up.

◆  Make yourself a drink and put on some Sinatra songs.
◆  It’s important that your drink is on the rocks with no mixer. There’s something holy about drinking hard liquor on the rocks while
listening to Sinatra—like a perfect wine pairing.

Enjoy The Evening.

Satisfy Me One More Time Lyrics
(As Frank Sinatra Sings Them)

Don’t deny me, satisfy me one more time,
Barricade me and invade me, 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 grow.
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 my birthday suit ain’t cute, I’ll 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 Duck’s getting colder, just be sure,
Everything’s 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 nothin’, but lovin’ on my mind.
Don’t deny me, satisfy me one more time.
Encore, encore, encore.

That’s Life Lyrics

That’s life (that’s life) that’s what people say
You’re riding high in April
Shot down in May
But I know I’m gonna change that tune
When I’m back on top, back on top in June
I said, that’s life (that’s life) and as funny as it may seem
Some people get their kicks
Stompin’ on a dream
But I don’t let it, let it get me down
‘Cause this fine old world it keeps spinnin’ around
I’ve been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate
A poet, a pawn and a king
I’ve been up and down and over and out
And I know one thing
Each time I find myself flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race
That’s life (that’s life) I tell ya, I can’t deny it
I thought of quitting, baby
But my heart just ain’t gonna buy it
And if I didn’t think it was worth one single try
I’d jump right on a big bird and then I’d fly
I’ve been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate
A poet, a pawn and a king
I’ve been up and down and over and out
And I know one thing
Each time I find myself layin’ flat on my face
I just pick myself up and get back in the race
That’s life (that’s life) that’s life
And I can’t deny it
Many times I thought of cuttin’ out but my heart won’t buy it
But if there’s nothing shakin’ come here this July
I’m gonna roll myself up in a big ball and die
My, my
