For Thursday, September 1: September Song

'Ol Blue Eyes.  If my memory is working I haven't yet featured Frank Sinatra.  *GASP*  How could 'ol blue eyes NOT be on this 365?  There have been a few good ones in the history of music and Sinatra is one of those few.  Part of the famous "Rat Pack" he spent his time with the likes of Harry James and Tommy Dorsey (Swing era) and moved on to Tony Curtis, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr, Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop in the 1960's.  Apparently the term "rat pack" came from Lauren Bacall after her husband, the famed Humphrey Bogart, spent a long night drinking and gambling with Sinatra and some others.
Spanning music and cinema, Sinatra made a name for himself although that's not to say that he didn't have low periods in his career where nobody wanted him or his music.  But I believe the high periods made up for the low ones and he is one of the most loved artists of our times. 
Happy September 1!  18 more days of this 365!  I can't believe how fast the year has gone by!

September Song
