thoughts and feels and thoughts and feels [userpic]

New interest: practicing wiles at will.

I wonder what Frank Sinatra was like - as a person. He was sort of the last singer without a modifier. Ella Fitzgerald is a jazz singer. Woody Guthrie is a folk singer. Look at the list of stuff he's performed - Frankie just sang.

If he had an ego it would be an entirely different flavor than anyone today.


modifier: Italian. :P (I think...)

He was an Italian singer?...

I'm not sure. I thought so. When I think of Frank, I think of the Mafia and the Kennedies and all other such fun things. :)



Yeh, I sort of meant repertoire-wise more than anything. (I suppose if you took that route you could modify 'singer' with 'male' or something...)

He thought the term "crooner" was often used in reference to Frank, as in "the last of the crooners," or some such. He was aware on some level of the derogatory connotation of the word "crooner," although it was hard to imagine that anyone oculd deride the Chairman.

Excepting Brandon, whose personal taste was not to be trusted in any matters.
