Here’s Why All Singers Need To Study Frank Sinatra

Watch the attached clip (brought to our attention today by the great radio talk-show host Mark Simone) and you’ll see exactly what made Frank Sinatra special. Notice the phrasing, the way certain notes are held, the perfectly pronounced words that nevertheless roll out so easily and naturally. Most of all, note the relaxed confidence, the rarest thing of all.

Did you know Doors lead singer Jim Morrison considered Frank Sinatra his main inspiration? Friends, it’s true. And keep watching as the next clip shows Sinatra with his main inspiration, Bing Crosby (who later also inspired the Beatle’s John Lennon).

So there it is in one little 4 minute, 23 second excerpt, the two greatest popular singers of the 20th century.

Merry Christmas, Tiny Tim, God bless us, every one!
