One of My Favorite Sinatra's Songs of ALL
ONE For MY BABY
Watch this great Music Video of the Great Frank Sinatra, singing one of his classics. ONE FOR MY BABY, written by the great Johnny Mercer. It's what Frank called a Drunk Song. I saw Frank perform 7 times, and when he did this, he said,"now I'm gonna a do a Drunk Song," as the character in the song (Frank) is in a bar, which some have said was PJ CLARKE'S on 3rd Avenue in New York. PJ Clarke's was long a favorite of Sinatra, he drank there many times over the years, and ate a Burger or Steak.
Anyway watch the video.
"One for My Baby (and One More for the Road)" is a hit song written by Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer for the movie musical The Sky's the Limit (1943) and first performed in the film by Fred Astaire. It was popularized by Frank SINATRA .
Harold Arlen described the song as "another typical Arlen tapeworm" – a "tapeworm" being the trade slang for any song which went over the conventional 32 bar length. He called it "a wandering song. [Lyricist] Johnny [Mercer] took it and wrote it exactly the way it fell. Not only is it long – forty-eight bars – but it also changes key. Johnny made it work." In the opinion of Arlen's biographer, Edward Jablonski, the song is "musically inevitable, rhythmically insistent, and in that mood of 'metropolitan melancholic beauty' that writer John O'Hara finds in all of Arlen's music."
Sinatra recorded the song several times during his career: In 1947 with Columbia Records, in 1954 for the film soundtrack album Young at Heart, in 1958 for Frank Sinatra Sings for Only the Lonely, in 1962 for Sinatra & Sextet: Live in Paris, in 1966 for Sinatra at the Sandsand finally, in 1993, for his Duets album.
