Here are top 10 classic songs by “Ol’ Blue Eyes Which should definitely be in your playlist!!
#1 Come fly with me
“Once I get you up there where the air is rarified
We’ll just glide, starry-eyed
Once I get you up there I’ll be holding you so near
You may hear angels cheer ’cause we’re together
Weather-wise it’s such a lovely day
You just say the words and we’ll beat the birds
Down to Ac apulco Bay
It’s perfect for a flying honeymoon, they say
Come fly with me, let’s fly, let’s fly away”
#2 My way
“Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall and did it my way
I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried
I’ve had my fill, my share of losing
And now, as tears subside, I find it all so amusing
To think I did all that
And may I say, not in a shy way
Oh, no, oh, no, not me, I did it my way”
#3 I’ve got you under my skin
“I’ve got you under my skin.
I’ve got you deep in the heart of me.
So deep in my heart that you’re really a part of me.
I’ve got you under my skin.
I’d tried so not to give in.
I said to myself: this affair never will go so well.
But why should I try to resist when, baby, I know so well
I’ve got you under my skin?”
#4 Fly me to the moon
Originally titled “In Other Words” and recorded by Kaye Ballard the same year. The song has become a popular jazz standard.
Also, it’s a personal fav!
“Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On a-Jupiter and Mars
In other words: hold my hand
In other words: baby, kiss me
Fill my heart with song
And let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore
In other words: please, be true
In other words: I love you”
#5 The way you look tonight
“Someday, when I’m awfully low
When the world is cold
I will feel a glow just thinking of you
And the way you look tonight
Yes, you’re lovely, with your smile so warm
And your cheeks so soft
There is nothing for me but to love you
And the way you look tonight”
#6 Strangers in the night
“Strangers in the night
Two lonely people, we were strangers in the night
Up to the moment when we said our first hello little did we know
Love was just a glance away, a warm embracing dance away
Ever since that night we’ve been together
Lovers at first sight, in love forever
It turned out so right for strangers in the night”
#7 It’s a wonderful world
“It’s a wonderful world, I’m just walking on air
Talk of heaven on earth, I’ve got more than my share
Haven’t got a care, happy all day thru
It’s a wonderful world, loving wonderful you”
#8 Something stupid feat. Nancy Sinatra
Even if you don’t listen to other songs… make sure you listen to this one!
Frank Sinatra had many close relationships throughout his life. He was married four times, and had at least six other notable relationships in between.
But he shared a song with his 4th wife, Nancy Sinatra and it still remains an old time evergreen classic!
“I can see it in your eyes that you despise
the same old lines you heard the night before……
And though it’s just a line to you for me it’s true……
And never seemed so right before
I practice every day to find some clever lines
to say to make the meaning come true……
But then I think I’ll wait until the evening gets late
And I’m alone with you
The time is right your perfume fills my head……
The stars get red and on the nights so blue……
And then I go and spoil it all by saying
something stupid like I love you”
So these were are our favourites!
