Frank Sinatra MY WAY






Frank Sinatra









 "MY WAY"


For those of you who may not know "My Way" was written by French Songwriters Claude Francosi and Jacques Revaux. The English Lyrics that Sinatra sings, were written 1967 by Canadian singer / songwriter Paul Anka. Anka heard the song called Comme d Habitude (as Usual), sung by Claude Francois while on vacation in the South of France, and liked it as a potential song. Paul Anka flew to Paris to meet with the song writers, where he obtained adaption, recording, and publishing rights for a mere $1 ...

Some time Anka was in Florida having lunch with Sinatra at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach where Sinatra was filing Tony Rome. The story goes Frank was hinging out with some Mobsters, when Anka proposed the song Sinatra. Sinatra told Anka, "I'm quitting the Business. I'm Sick of It. I'm getting the Hell Out."

Anka rewrote the song one night in New York. Anka recalls that he sat down with his IBM typewriter at 1 O'Clock in the morning. and said to himself, "If Frank were ,writing this song, what would he say?" Anka finished the song by 5 o'clock in the morning. He called up Frank who was at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas. Paul told Frank, "I've got something special for you."

Sinatra recorded My Way on December 20, 1968 at Western Recorders Studios in Los Angeles just a few hours before performing a concert at The Sands Hotel Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Frank Sinatra's daughter Tina says that even though My Way became Sinatra's signature song, he hated it, Tina said "He didn't like it. The song stuck and he couldn't get it off his shoe. He always thought the song was self-serving and self-indulgent."

Paul Aka says that his record producer was bad at Paul that he gave it to Sinatra, and didn't record it himself, but Anka said he could never sing it. It was for Frank. Sinatra's recording of My Way has sold 10s of Millions of copies over the year, and is not only a large part of Sinatra's History (like it or not), American history and part of 100s of millions of Americans and people all over the World who love the song and the memories it holds for them.

Bobby Caldwell is NOT Black He is White






BOBBY CALDWELL

"He'S WHITE" !!!




WHAT YOU WON'T DO FOR LOVE

Bobby Caldwell "He's Not a Black Man" !

He's White !!!



Dam, just found out a quite Funny Thing? Bobby Caldwell is White. Yes. I love this song, it's one of my all-time favorites. The song is Fucking Awesome. and I've listened to it 1,00 times over the years. I always thought Bobby Caldwell was a black man. He sounded like a black man, and I never really thought about it. Well I love Youtube and I have this music blog "BEST MUSIC EVER" and post all my favorite songs, mostly of the 1960s, 70, and 80s, R&B, POP MUSIC, ROCK & ROLL, and Standards from such greats as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Sammy Davis Jr., and the lot, just Great Music and NEVER Any SHITTY HIP HOP RAP CRAP or SHITTY so-called Alternative Rock "Whatever The FUCK That Is?" FUCK, What The FUCK Happened? What the Hell Happened to MUSIC. Why hasn't anyone made any good music for some 20 years or so now? I just don't Fucking get it. The 1960s 70s and even 1980s produced such an abundance of great music, "I thought it would never end." Who knew? Did you? Anyway, Thank God for Records (recordings) and such things, so we don't have to listen to any SHIT ASS RAP MUSIC or Alternative CRAP! We can listen to all the great recordings of such artists as; The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, Dionne Warwick, and on-and-on. I thought it would never end. And so, this is one of the reasons I created this blog, The BEST MUSIC EVER, from the 60s, 1970s and 80s, you NEVER EVER Have to listen to any SHITTY ASS RAP CRAP. Not unless you have SHITTY TASTE, as Millions of people do these this days. That's the only explanation why such Shitty, talent-less so-called musical artist like; Justin Timberlake "He Sucks," Taylor Swift "She Sucks," and HORRIBLE HORRIBLE so-called artist like Kanye West can record SHIT and make Millions, "People have BAD TASTE." the only explanation.

Anyway, I got off the track a bit. Wasn't I talking about Bobby Caldwell, his great song What You Won't Do For Love and the fact that, not only me, but millions of people thought that when they listen to this wonderful romantic song "What You Won't Do For Love" by Mr. Bobby Caldwell, you were listening to a black man? Hell Yeah, I did. When I was making this post and started reading the comments, I spotted a comment by a women, saying, "Didn't you think Bobby Caldwell was Black?" Yep. Funny. But then I saw another and another, and another, many comments, all saying basically the same thing, "didn't you think Bobby Caldwell was black," When Did You find out that Bobby Caldwell was white, and on-and-on, so many comments saying the same thing, everyone thought Bobby Caldwell was a black man. Don't believe me? Go check it out on youtube.

Anyway, no matter that Bobby Caldwell isn't a black man, like most everyone thought. Yes, Bobby Caldwell is white, and his rendition of What You Won't Do For Love is absolutely awesome, one of the sexiest, most beautiful love songs ever sung, and by a white man who everyone thought was black, the song is just great, and the story quite funny, "What You Won't Do For Love?"

Basta !


Daniel Bellino Zwicke



More on Bobby

Old myths have a way of sticking around. Especially the one about Bobby Caldwell being black. It’s been 37 years since Caldwell broke through with the soul classic “What You Won’t Do For Love,” and yet, some are still shocked when they find out the singer is white. “Quite honestly, I never thought I sounded black,” says Caldwell. “I thought I sounded like a white guy that was influenced by R&B music. But people would swear up and down I was black. Huge amounts of money were lost in bets.”


There are thousands of articles, and postings all over the Internet; on Twitter, Facebook, Buzzfeed, all over the places.

What do you think of all this? We'd like to know. Please leave a comment below.

Sinatra EVERYTHING HAPPENS ME





FRANK SINATRA

EVERYTHING HAPPENS to ME


The album EVERYTHING HAPPENS to ME came about as a conversation between Frank Sinatra and his daughter Tina asking Frank about his favorite songs. Tina asked her father if he would want to put together an album of these his favorite songs, the result was Everything Happens to Me, produced by Tina Sinatra in 1996.






EVERYTHING HAPPENS to ME

ALBUM

FRANK SINATRA






FRANK SINATRA

ALL MY TOMORROWS


ALL MY TOMORROWS is one of those songs that Frank Sinatra could sing better than anyone whose ever recorded the song. The musical arrangement with beautiful violin tracks is poignant beyond all poignancy . "All My Tomorrows" as sung by the great Frank Sinatra is a song so sweet and lovely, and beautiful beyond belief.

"I've got lots of plans for Tomorrow, and all my Tomorrows belong to you."

"No one knows better than I, that love keeps passing me by."

"But with you there by my side, I'll be turning that tide."

"As long as I've got arms that cling at all, it's you I'll be clinging to."


Sinatra in the song pour out his heart for the women he loves, and how all his hopes and desires for his love and their life together, "on some bright tomorrow. All my bright tomorrows belong to you." Wow, is that something.


Yes "ALL MY TOMORROWS" by Mr. Francis Albert Sinatra has to be one of the most beautiful songs ever recorded in the history of the World. "Thank You Frank," for this, and all of your incomparable love songs. You where the Best.

Elton John Goodbye Yellow Brick Road Tour

The HIGH FUCKING PRICE of CONCERT TICKETS

WHAT THE FUCK ?

Average Price of Tickets for Elton John Concert $275

"FUCKING OUTRAGEOUS"

It's Not Just ELTON But The Whole Industry. "WHAT The FUCK?" This is WRONG ! Plain and Simple. Don't these People (Rock Stars) have a Heart? Sorry, I Love them. I Love my music. I Love R&B and ROCK & ROLL, but it's just been outrageous, the prices these peopel have been charging for the past 15 Years or so? Again, "WHAT THE FUCK GUYS?" Don't you have a Heart?
Elton John just announced that he will be extending his Goodbye Yellow Brick Road Farewell Tour to four separate venues in the New York / NJ Metropolitan Area in 2020. Elton John will be leading off his New York Area Tour Dates in Manhattan at Madison Square Garden on April 6th and April 7th 2020 .. He will follow these MSG Concerts with two nights at Brooklyn's Barclay Center on April 10 & 11, then move on to Newark's Prudential Center for one night on April 15th before heading over to Long Island to perform two nights at Nassau Coliseum on April 17 & 18th. Thank You Elton. "You know we all Love you here in New York and are quite excited and happy that you will be playing all these dates, giving New Yorker's, Jerseyite's and anyone else a chance to see you one more time. "I know I'm dam excited, a chance to see another legend, after seeing numerous ones over the years, like: George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney, The Allman Brothers Band, The Rolling Stones, Frank Sinatra, Dianna Ross, Crosby Still Nash & Young, BB King, and a few others, now I get to go see you Elton, live and in concert at New York's Madison Square Garden. I can't wait.
I just heard the news today, and I'm already phsyched, cue-ing up your music, listening to such songs as Tiny Dancer, Levon, All The Girls Love Allice, Harmony, Funeral For a Friend and more. All the great hits and more. I've been listening to your music ever since Madman Across The Water came out, I Loved it, and it was one of the first Rock Albums I bought way back in 1971. I bought the album at the music store Tomko Brothers in Rutherford, New Jersey. Boy these kids these days, don't know what they're missing, not being in the culture of buying albums, as we , did back int the 1970. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Jethro Tull, or Elton John would come out with a new album, you'd save up your money to get it ($4.99), go down to the record store and get your copy. You'd bring it home, tear off the plastic wrap, check it out, put it on your record player (stereo), and read the liner-notes as you listened along in teenage bliss. "Ah, the Good Ol Days." Yes these kids today don't know what they're missing. And we could afford to got to concerts back then. Well this is a great complaint of mine, and millions of others. The price of concert tickets these days are obscene. What The Fuck?" They are outrageous! People can't afford to go to concerts . You have to be Rich. This isn't fare. I wish some of you guys would do something about this, it just isn't fare. Elton, you've got millions. Wouldn't you consider or think of working people who want to see you but can't afford the ridiculously F-ing High Prices of Concert Tickets. I'm going to pay the price, it's a lot for me, but I will pay, I want to go to see you for once, but the prices are just not fare at all. When I was a teenager, and I worked hard and paid for tickets myself to got o concerts, the average price was about $12. The average weekly wages for the average American was about $300 a week in 1974. The average weekly wage is just $700 in 2019, meaning the average weekly wage has gone up just a little more than two times. Not much! Yet the insane prices of Concert Tickets have Skyrocketed to average of $175 per ticket, or about 14 TIMES What they used to be. Wages increased by 2 Times, concert tickets increase 14 Times in the same amount of time. there's something wrong here? Is it GREED? Again, "WHAT THE FUCK?" Plain and simple, this is wrong. Can you here me ROCK STARS ?
I know what some people might say, "if you don't like it, don't go." Well, this may be true, but then again maybe not. What do you think? Let us know. We want to know. Leave a comment. Make your voice heard.

ROLLING STONES Tickets Average Price $249
Yes, The Stones No Filter Tour. My friend Mireya and I were talking about the Rolling Stones one day, about how we both loved them. Yes talking about, Mick and Keith and the music and how great it was, when my friend Mireya said, "if they come around and play a Concert, I want to go with you." As fate would have it, it was just a couple of weeks later that The Rolling Stones announced that they would be playing some concert dates in 2019. This was in December of 2018 when they announced the concert dates, and they would be playing Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford New Jersey on June 13, 2019. I saw Mireya the next day, and told her. She immediately got on her phone and on to her ticket app and bought us tow tickets. "Yee-ha, awesome, we're going to go see The Rolling Stones," live and in concert, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ron Wood, and Charlie Watts, "her we come!" Can't wait. Mireya said, don't worry, I've got it (she was Buying the tickets - on her). But I couldn't let her pay for the tickets, I had to get her back. So we went to the concert and had an awesome time. Hey The Rolling Fucking Stones! But yeah, the tickets were not cheap. I got to get her back, and so yes, I told Mireya, we'll find another concert and I'll pay for those tickets. And so now, Thursday September 18th, 2019, I just heard today that Elton John has added concert tour dates to his Goodbye Yellwo Brick Road Farewell Tour and will be playing 7 concerts in the NY Metro area and will be at MSG on April 6 & 7, 2020, and so I will be buying tickets  to pay Mireya back for taking me to The Rolling Stones Concert where we had a most wonderful time. My cousins the Macri's all went, and cousin Joe rented a party bus for us to go to Metlife Stadium, and we had a tailgate party in the parking lot and we all had a great time.
So now, I will be getting two tickets to see Elton John at Madison Square Garden. 500 Bucks! "What The Fuck?" Well I'll pay the price. I have two. It's not often you get to see a Legend, and in 10 years from now, there will not be any of these great Rock N Roll Stars playing Concerts any longer. The Stones, God Bless Then have been keeping it going for ever, but it can't be that long off when they will finally hang it up, and not do any more live shows. It just won't be possible. This is after all, Elton's Farewell Tour, and he won't be playing any longer. Well, maybe? You never know? People have been known to change their minds. The great Frank Sinatra did, and thanks to him coming out of retirement I was so fortunate to see him 7 times, and at more than reasonable price (only $25 to $40). Yes, imagine that? I never paid more than $40 to see the great Frank Sinatra perform live. Even still, if the price of concert tickets stayed in line with the average working persons weekly wages, if Sinatra was alive and performing today, and the ticket prices were in-line with wages, the average price of a Sinatra Concert ticket would now be about $85 to $95, not $175 to $295 to $500 or one-thousand dollars are more like they are today, "What The Fuck?"

Just My Imagination Stones Texas 78




MICK

JUST MY IMAGINATION







Greatest Rock Songs Ever





LED ZEPPELIN IV







STAIRWAY to HEAVEN



Stairway to Heaven by Power Rock Group LED ZEPPELIN is considered by many serous fans of Hard Rock Music to be the single greatest ROCK SONG of All-Time, and for good reason, just listen. Robert Plant sings beautifully on the song, and the guitar playing by Zeppelin guitarist (one of Rocks Greatest) Jimmy Page is a virtuoso's at its very best. The way the song starts slwoly and softly starts, then slowly builds to a climatic crescendo is purely one of Rocks Great moments. The Crescendo of which features one of Rock's Greates Licks of all-time as Jimmy Page belts it out, the drumbs come banging in, and Plant fisneshes it off. It's absolutely spectacular. "Long Live Rock & Roll," and I ish that Shitty Crap Rap "so-called music" would Please DIE !








START ME UP

The ROLLING STONES

From TATOO YOU



Yes, START ME UP by The ROLLING STONES, The World's Greatest Rock & Roll Band of all, is one of the World's Best recorded ROCK SONGS of ALL-TIME. The song has everything to make it a ROCK CLASSIC which it certainly is. The song just doesn't stop, from beginning to end the song ROCKS, with vocals by Rocks's Greatest Frontman MICK JAGGER, combined with Charlie Watts drum beats, and driving guitar licks & rythym by Rolling Stones guitarists Ron Wood and Keith Richards. We feel START ME UP by The Stones is one of the Two Greatest Rock N Roll songs of all-time, "it's Pure Rock & Roll" at its very best, and we Thank You MICK, KEEF, RONNY, and CHARLIE WATTS. Thank You simply for being The Rolling Stones, staying together, and making such wonderful music, we just can't thank you guys enough, you are Rock & Roll.


Yes folks, Stairway to Heaven (Led Zeppelin) and Start Me Up by the Rolling Stones. "The Greatest Rock & Roll Band of All-Time" get my vote for the 2 Greatest Songs in the History of Rock. They are Rock & Roll and they both Rock it out. Stairway starts off easy and melodic, builds up to a Rockin Crescendo, then comes back down again, while Start me Up by the Stones starts off Rockin, keeps Rockin and never stops Rockin, "Never Stop, Never Stop."

The beginning Chords from Keith Richards are 3 of Rocks most wonderful strums, "Der Ner Noot." The song drives with Keith letting loose some great chords to Woody's powerful licks in all the right spots, driving Bass from Bill Wyman throbs wonderful, Charlie supplies the beat with Mick's incomparable vocals. It's Rock & Roll artistry at it's very finest as only history and The World's Greatest Rock & Roll band, The Rolling Stones could do.
On the other hand, many claim Led Zepplin's "Stairway to Heaven" as Rock's single greatest song of all-time. I Love it, and it would be hard to argue with that, but hey folks, your talking to a hardcore Stones fan here, Start Me Up gets this guys vote.

Then again, these two songs wouldn't make others list for the top two. Thankfully, there are many great songs to come from the now defunct genre of Classic Rock. Can you believe it ? Nobody creates Rock anymore? It's mystifying to say the least, just a lot of Crap Upon Crap Upon More Crap these days. "It's a dam shame." But we always Thank God have the Stones, Zeppelin, The Allman Brothers, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, the Who and others. Their recorded music will always live on, and the Stones, The Allman Brothers, Steely Dan and a few others still play live in this New Year of 2012. Again, "Thank God."

DEATH of RIC OCASEK


His wife, model Paulina Porizkova, said that on Sunday morning while bringing him coffee, she realized the musician was dead.
"I touched his cheek to rouse him," she wrote on Instagram on Monday. "It was then I realized that during the night he had peacefully passed on."
She noted that he was "recuperating very well after surgery," but did not provide details about why type of procedure.


Ric Ocasek with Wife Paulina Parikova

Fans and peers mourned his death Monday.
“We’re truly saddened to hear about the passing of Ric Ocasek,” according to a statement on Monday by John Josephson, chairman and CEO of the songwriter advocacy group SESAC.
“As a songwriter and musician, Ric made a significant impact on American music, setting a standard for aspiring songwriters over the decades and for years to come. We’ll miss him greatly.”
Ocasek co-founded The Cars in Boston in 1976 with bassist and singer Benjamin Orr. The band's sound merged classic guitar-oriented rock with synthesizer-driven pop sounds of the late 1970s and early 80s.
The band recorded more than a dozen Top 40 anthems, including "My Best Friend’s Girl," "Good Times Roll," and "Just What I Needed."
The Cars broke up in the late 1980s, but Ocasek would go on to become a noted producer, working with influential punk and rock bands like Bad Brains, Weezer and Bad Religion.

The Cars' music has been described as new wave and power pop, and is influenced by proto-punkgarage rock, and bubblegum pop. They have also used rockabilly in songs such as "My Best Friend's Girl". Robert Palmer, music critic for The New York Times and Rolling Stone, described the Cars' musical style: "they have taken some important but disparate contemporary trends—punk minimalism, the labyrinthine synthesizer and guitar textures of art rock, the '50s rockabilly revival and the melodious terseness of power pop—and mixed them into a personal and appealing blend."[1] They have also had hard rock-oriented songs including "You're All I've Got Tonight"
