Frank Sinatra Wants To Fly To The Moon

franksinatra9

One of my favorite tunes by Frank Sinatra is Fly Me To The Moon. I don't think I've ever posted this particular video before. It's from his special A Man & His Music II.

I love the A Man and His Music series -- I was so excited when TCM played them last year, so now I have them on tape :) I love the duets he did with his daughter, especially.

Keith said...

Hey Kate. Thanks for commenting. I love those specials so much. I was thrilled myself when they were aired last year. His stuff with Nancy was great. I definitely recommend A Man & His Music.

Hey Agneta. Thanks for commenting. I'm glad to see you really like Frank. That's cool about your son. Have a great day. I'm heading off to bed.

Great Sinatra number and Nelson Riddle always adds to the lush sounds.

Trixie said...

I love Frank. LOVE.
That's one of my favorite songs
Nice to see!

Ms. B said...

That song reminds me of the movie Once Around. Great movie and great song!

Amy said...

I'm a big sinatra fan too my favourite son is come fly with me :-)

Protege said...

I have a post about the moon today, coincidentally.;)
I love that tune; what do you think about the Michael Buble version?

Sam said...

Super cool!! I am also a big fan of "New York New York" - on a fantastic stereo that song is just incredible!!!

Great video Keith.

Keith said...

Hey Scott. I'm really happy that you enjoyed that. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Trixie. Thanks. That's cool that you love Sinatra and this song.

Hey Mrs. B. Thanks. I've never seen that movie before.

Keith said...

Hey Amy. Thanks. I love that song too.

Hey Protege. I'll be sure to check out your post. I like Buble's version. I may have posted that up here in the past.

Keith said...

Hey Sam. Thanks for commenting. Oh yeah. I love that song too. Sinatra always had such great tunes.

Keith said...

Thanks Jim. Glad you enjoyed it.

The Man Who Knew Too Much said...

Frank. Great music and great style.

I particularly like the menswear of the 50s and 60s. Some might say those were dull decades (especially the 50s) but watching Cary Grant escaping and chasing in a suit is not dull!

Keith said...

Hey Man. Thanks for commenting. I love the men's fashion of the 50's and 60's. There's nothing boring about it at all. I totally agree with you on Cary Grant. I've actually got a post coming up on him very soon.

Nancy Sinatra Fan said...

I love this song. It's one of my favorite Frank Sinatra songs.

Wolf Boy said...

So Frank wants to be an astronaut? lol

Mondo said...

Swing-o-matic.. I found the funkiest version of Fly Me To The Moon ever last week - I'll blog it soon(ish)

Keith said...

Thanks Phoebe. It is an awesome tune.

Keith said...

Hey Kira. Yeah, that would be cool.

Keith said...

Hey Wolf. I would fly on a spaceship with him as the captain.

Keith said...

Hey Dave. Thanks. That's cool. I can't wait to check that out.

Maggi said...

Oh yeah! Totally one of my all time favorite Sinatra songs!

Keith said...

Hey Maggi. Thanks. That's cool that you dig this tune too.

Tights Lover said...

Great song. Is there anyone better than Frank?

Rachel Follett said...

Such a classic! He is just so suave!

Stephanie said...

Oh, Frankie. He is great. I still like Dino better. But you have to admit Frank is still cool. :)

drollgirl said...

aw, this song is a keeper. for sure.

drollgirl said...

will you be sinatra for halloween? please? and do take pictures. :)

Dad.. said...

So awesome. Remember the good old days when entertainment could be as simple as watching someone with (talent) simply stand there and sing? Sinatra, Tom Jones, Dino.. they all had awesome TV shows and the second they started singing.. you had no choice but to hang on EVERY note! I'll tell you.. it's a sorry state today compared to the talent of yesteryear.

clarewbrown said...

Woah frank looks awesome in this photo! So dashing! And wonderful song too!

Keith said...

Hey Carrie. Thanks. I'm really glad you loved this post.

Hey Leah. Thanks. I'm happy that you also enjoy this song so much.

Hey Erika. Thanks. I really dig this photo of Frank too.

Keith said...

Hey FilmFather. Thanks. I love "Summer Wind" myself.

Thanks Janet.

Thanks Agneta. Enjoy your Thursday.

Keith said...

Hey Gabbi. Thanks. So glad you're a fan of this song. I really love it myself.

Thanks Niki. Happy you like it.

Hey Fashion. Just left a comment on your latest post.

Keith said...

Thanks kpeach.

Hey Tights. Thanks. Nope. Nobody does it quite like Frankie.

Hey Rachel. Thanks. I couldn't have described Frank any better.

Hey Steph. Thanks. Yeah, I love Dino better. But I do still dig Frank.

Keith said...

Hey Droll. Thanks for commenting. I doubt I'm going to be Sinatra or anybody else for Halloween. lol

Hey Dad. Thanks for your comment. I totally agree with you. These guys had talent. They could entertain us like nobody else. There is nobody out there today quite like that. I miss these guys.

Hey Clare. Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed the photo and video. Cheers!

Kristýna said...

I have this DVD at home. I bought two of them when I was in Paris the last year. I didn't have much idea what I was buying but I am glad, I did buy them. It is an amazing piece of the history of Sinatra.

Keith said...

Hey Kristyna. Thanks for commenting. That's so cool that you bought it. Yeah, it's definitely something that anybody who likes Sinatra should have if they can get it.

Tonygirl said...

Love this song too no one sings it better than Frank!

Keith said...

Thanks Mel. You are so right on that.
