Saturday Night Serenade–Witchcraft

I’m in a Halloween-y sort of mood.  There are quite a few songs that fit the bill.  But tonight I’m going all retro.

Precious few have ever been as cool as Frank Sinatra.  Even if you’ve heard all the stories about how he was ‘connected’.  Or maybe in spite of them.  I can never look at him and not think about Johnny Fontane from The Godfather.

There was one about the time he paid a guy $50 to punch writer Dominick Dunne, a fact oddly mentioned in Dunne’s obituary.  The man apologized beforehand.  “It’s not the money.  I’m afraid not to.”

Frank Sinatra cool............Happy Friday.:

Another story tells about the time a valet brought his car around.  “What’s the biggest tip you ever got?” he asked the young man.  “$100,” he answered.  Frank gave him $200 and asked who gave him the $100.  “You did, sir.  Last week,” was the reply.

But back to Halloween.  Here’s Frank Sinatra singing Witchcraft, a perfect song for an October Saturday night.  You might even take the one you love and foxtrot to this smooth classic.  Happy Saturday night!

  1. I love Frank! In college a few friends and I would have nights dedicated to booze and Frank. Sometimes Harry Connick, Jr., too, but that’s it. We’d sing and drink. And sing some more.

    ‘She gets too hungry for dinner at eight
    She likes the theatre and never comes late
    She never bothers with people she’d hate
    That’s why the lady is a tramp’

    I realize that has absolutely nothing to do with Halloween. Unless you’re going as a tramp. Hey….there’s an idea…..
