Frank Sinatra: Songs for Swingin’ Lovers


Frank Sinatra: Songs for Swingin’ Lovers
Capitol (1956)

Number 995, of 1001 Albums You Must Listen to Before you Die.

I’ve been avoiding this record because I just don’t have much to say about it. In the Wee Small Hours surprised me with smoky atmospheres and heart-on-your-sleeve emotions, but Songs for Swingin’ Lovers! is a cheesy butterball of everything that puts me off Frank Sinatra.

Sure, songs like I’ve got you Under my Skin and Anything Goes are bucket loads of fun to perform at karaoke, when you can pretend you’re a cigar smoking, whiskey sipping womaniser in a pie hat. But where’s the substance?
