Something Performed By Frank Sinatra & The Beatles

I'm posting here Frank's cover of the Beatles classic tune Something. Frank definitely makes the song his own. I really enjoy his take on this song. Something was actually one of Sinatra's favorite songs to perform in concert. I'm also posting the promo video that the Beatles did for this #1 hit of theirs, which was written and sung by my favorite Beatle George Harrison on their 1969 classic album Abbey Road. This is actually one of my favorite songs by the Beatles. I do wish George had been given more of an opportunity to write and sing songs for the Beatles during their time together. I hope you enjoy these two clips.

I can never get enough of good ole Frank but I think George Harrison does a better rendition of this song :-)

Frank would make anything his own I think, great clips.

Yeah it is a shame about George.

Love the smooth and cool version of Sinatra's Something. It's so snazzy!

Protege said...

Ah! I was going to feature that exact song by Beatles for my Flashback Friday.;) Sinatra is actually quiet good performing the cover, but no one does it as well as George.;))
By the way, did you know that the cool blond at the start of the Beatles video is Patsy, the inspiration for Clapton's Layla?;)
Have a great day.;)

Music aside, I dig on The Beatles' fashion in this video.

Leah said...

I had goosebumps while listening to Frankie sing that song... he is amazing.

Leah said...

Then I listened to George in the music video, still having goosebumps. Both clips are fabulous.

I love this, Keith, thank you very much for posting it. I'd never seen this pairing (Frank covering the Beatles) before and loved kicking off my morning with it.

Have a stellar day, my friend!

Wolf Boy said...

I love this song myself. Sinatra does do a good job with his version of the song. That would be cool to know that Sinatra covered one of your songs.

Cool song, and the Beatles video was pretty cool too. Didn't realize they put these together. Thanks!

Mondo said...

This couldn't be more up my street Keith.. Yes I'm sure I've heard Sinatra say what a great love song Something is.

Dana Andrews said...

Sinatra said that "Something" was one of the best love song ever recorded and "it never says I love you"... Frank sings that with so much feeling.

Erika said...

Don't even get me started on The Beatles, Keith - I love them so much! J'adore both video clips, but I still have to go with The Beatles - they're too amazing! :)

lorenabr said...

Great.I love the music & the movies.
Sinatra is fab.

Tights Lover said...

Totally agree with you. George always deserved more than his 2-song-an-album limit that he was held to. Something might have been his best...I like the Sinatra version too.

Stephanie said...

Ah, love this song. I will have to say love The Beatles version better, but what can I say I am a true blue beatles fan. ;)

I heard that he always called this his favorite Lennon/McCartney song, which is funny since it's so very George.

That was excellent !... I love Sinatra's spin on that song.
But I do have to agree with Amy, George Harrisons version is it .

Robert M. Lindsey said...

"Stick around Jack" I love that Sinatra added Jack.
