Britain's Got Talent...Audition! [18 Nov 2010|11:34pm]

harrisonnash
 Hi guys!

Haven't been on here for a while! I've been given an audition for Britain's Got Talent, and thinking about going for it, but thought you guys may be able to give me some comments!

As I am a HUGE fan of Sinatra I have decided I would like to do one of his songs (hopefully without ruining it!)

Here is a link to a recording i've made :)

www.youtube.com/watch

Any constructive feedback or song suggestions welcome, i've just never had singing lessons or done this before so it's a bit new to me!

I am also thinking about doing Bewitched Bothered and Bewildered, Summerwind and My Way...

Just hope you enjoy it!

Um, I've started a blog at fuckyeahfranksinatra.tumblr.com, because there wasn't one and there should be. It'll feature tunez/pictures/quotes/videos of our boy Sinatra, in a daily dose kind of way. Anyway, check it out if you are so inclined.

Hi,
me again.
I'm looking for the song "ALL OF YOU" by Frank Sinatra. 
Fred Astaire had sung it in one of his movies, and I've heard that there's a Sinatra version as well.
Maybe you guys can help me out?

 Thanks!

Another amazing used CD shop find! [13 Dec 2008|06:09pm]

joeytheteapot
Welp, I went to the used CD shop again on Wednesday, and what do I see in the same sale bin I got A Jolly Christmas From Frank Sinatra from?



Same price too - $2.99. This one was a promo copy, as evidenced by the notch cut into the side, but it was still wrapped. (I bought seven other CDs that day too - two of them also brand new in the wrapping with notches cut in the side. Those two ALSO were released by Capitol Records. Coincidence? I think not! XD)

I'm listening to it now. I'm on track 6, which is Gold, composed by Nelson Riddle.

Was there anything this man COULDN'T do?

SQUEEEEE Sinatra Christmas music! [02 Nov 2008|01:40am]

joeytheteapot
Look what I found BRAND NEW UNOPENED in a used media shop for less than $3!



Although there's a new release out, so it's in print, it uses the 1999 digital remaster, which is what this CD is, and a different cover that I don't really care for, so I'm EXTRA glad I found this one. XD

Here's the 50th Anniversary Edition cover:

Danny Aiello channels Sinatra for his new CD [01 Aug 2008|05:04pm]

polandspringz

Danny Aiello got to channel Sinatra by meeting him during one of his last performances! AND THEN getting to perform IN THE COPA ROOM for his new cd "Live In Atlantic City"

Check it out: For Academy Award nominated actor Danny Aiello’s second CD he was inspired by Atlantic City, Sinatras old stomping ground.  It was the place where old blue eyes performed his final public US concert while Danny Aiello watched from the audience.  “My wife Sandy and I got a call from my agent inviting us down to Atlantic City to see the show and meet Frank.  I loved Sinatra and jumped at the chance not knowing what to expect.  He was everything and more and the Copa Room, well, it was the perfect setting.” 

Ten years later Aiello recorded his debut CD. Five days after the release, Danny Aiello made his Billboard Chart debut! His first album I Just Wanted To Hear The Words hit the Billboard Traditional Jazz Chart at #4, the highest new entry that week, just behind Harry Connick Jr., Winton Marsalis and Diana Krall.

And so it is fitting when a friend suggests in 2005 that he record one of those Atlantic City shows, preferably from The Sands so he and his band could preserve a little history for themselves, Aiello agrees, “Given Sinatra’s history on that stage and my memories of seeing him there, the Sands really captured the spirit of the resort’s history among the excitement of a new Atlantic City.  For me, it made perfect sense.”

 

A lifelong resident of New York City, Danny Aiello began acting in his mid 30's. With a reputation for no-holds-barred stage and screen performances which are brimming with honest emotion.  Aiello received unanimous acclaim including Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for Best Supporting Actor, and was named Best Supporting Actor by the Los Angeles, Boston and Chicago Film Critics Associations.

[ mood | frustrated ]

Hi,

I'm not sure if this is the right place, but I'm looking for the downloads of the Sinatra records 'September of my years' and 'Songs for swinging lovers'(zip if possible, my computer can't open abc. dunno why...)
 Any idea where I could find 'em? 

Thanks. ^^

I'm new 'round here; hiya! *waves*

Name: Amara
Age: 21
Location: Vancouver, Washington
Favorite Frank film: Unfortunately I've only seen one so far, so I'd have to say Ocean's 11.
Favorite Frank song: I'm quite partial to "Fly Me To The Moon," "I've Got The World On A String," "Something Stupid," "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown," & "New York, New York." I can never resist singing along ♥
How and when did you first discover Frank: Well, I've always known who he was, but it's only been within the last 2-3 years that I've been paying more active attention; a Christmastime trip to Vegas last year only amplified the love :D
How did you stumble across here? LJ Search!
Any other comments: I was absolutely, positively born in the wrong era, heh. Certainly I'm not the only one who feels the same way? ('Cause I could certainly use some more like-minded LJ friends) :]

New update on Nothing But The Best's sales numbers.

I have the updated Soundscan numbers. Last week, NBTB sold 54,143. Which brings the total to 153,481 - about 11K more than I predicted in my previous post.

Way to go, Ol' Blue Eyes!

Nothing But The Best debuted at #2! [28 May 2008|07:06am]

joeytheteapot
I don't know how I missed this, but last week, Nothing But The Best debuted at #2 on the Billboard albums chart. This week he's expected to drop to #4 with 49,034 sold - a 47% drop. With CD sales in the toilet right now, this actually isn't too bad.

If I use the fact that 49,034 is 53% of last week's sales, I calcuated that the first week sales were approx. 92,517. Of course, the numbers are from Hits Daily Double, and they're always close but not exact to Soundscan's totals, but this means approx. 141,551 sold in two weeks...not bad for a traditional pop compilation album.

ETA: I got hold of last week's Soundscan numbers...oddly enough from a hip-hop forum. (Google Search FTW) They placed first week sales at 99,338. So if I add this week's numbers from HDD and last week's Soundscan numbers, it places total sales at 148,372. Once I find out this week's Soundscan numbers, I'll be able to give a more precise number for total sales. It could be more than what I just calculated, and it could be less, but only by about a few thousand probably.

I made a tribute video for Frank as today's the 10th anniversary of his passing.

RIP Francis Albert Sinatra.
