Song Description

An attempt to recreate the lounge intimacy of Sinatra's style while suggesting the elegance and quality of his work. I am not copying him nor am I able to meet his standard.

Story Behind the Song

Lyrically I thought it might be an attractive idea to echo some of his great classics as the story of the song progresses.

Lyrics

Frankie Was an Artist by Chris Orchard (copyright)

Something smooth, something just a little grand
Could become, magic in his hands
All the pain and the scandal, for years he endured
Frankie was an artist that's for sure

Basies's swing, Riddle tied them up in knots
Frank would sing and nail them to the blocks
From the Moon to Chicago they're checking the score
Frankie was an artist that's for sure

So many voices they come and go
They like to sing his swinging blues
They shorten the phrases they stretch out the notes but
You know boys can't fit men's shoes

Night and Day, New York would beat his drum,
In His Way he stayed at number one
Through decades that many now choose to ignore
But Frankie was an artist that's for sure
Frankie was an artist that's for sure
