A Sinatra Night...

Well....I had a great day at work today...until just before closing....then, it went to shit....anyway, so it goes, I suppose...but, as usual, my drive back home is always relaxing and enjoyable...country roads....the promise of Scotch at the end of the trail....and music to listen to during the drive....today, I started off with George Thorogood....but, I just wasn't in the mood...so...over to disc 1 in the changer....yeah...that'll do JUST fine....Sinatra & the Ratpack....I clicked through the songs till I got to number 10...."My First Affair"....one word..day-um...now THAT is a song...anyway....I put it on repeat, and listened to it all the way home....now, it is in my PC, and he's STILL singing it.....so, for those of you who are uninitiated to this song....HERE IT IS....and, I'm putting the lyrics down below so you can sing along as Frank croons....awww...c'mon...."please be kind"....

Well, this is my first affair, so please be kind
Handle my heart with care, please be kind
This is all so grand, my dreams are on parade
You'll just understand, they'll never, never fade

Tell me your love's sincere, please be kind
Tell me I needn't fear, please be kind
'cause if you leave me, dear, I know my heart will lose its mind
If you love me, please be kind

This is my first affair, please be kind
Handle my heart with care, and please be kind

And handle my heart with care, so please be kind
Tell me I needn't fear, and please be kind
'cause if you leave me, dear, I know my heart will lose its mind
If you love me, baby, please be kind

Last week, I was fixated on Dean Martin's "Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter"....I get that way sometimes, I suppose....

Thought I knew all the Sinatra songs - but this one is new to me. Don't think I'd put it on repeat tho. Maybe it has to grow on you!!

I definitely grows on you..Sinatra is a flavor that is best enjoyed with a fine cigar and a single malt Scotch....

I didn't know that one, either, but I like the Ratpack and Tony for sure.

Well, I like Sinatra, but I'm more into Peter Gabriel and Elvis Costello, but then I'm the angry music type, anyway...
