Sinatra's playlist

Sinatra's playlist

In his wonderful Assembly Hall story this morning, Paul Klee writes that the big hall cannot remember Frank Sinatra's playlist from his Nov. 1, 1990, show. I preserved it although this may not be the right order (it doesn't seem like it would be) ...

Come Rain or Come Shine

World on A String

Summer Wind

Someone Who Needs Me

You Make Me Feel So Young

My Way

The Best is Yet to Come

Where or When

The Lady is a Tramp

Strangers in the Night

What Now My Love

It Was A Very Good Year

My Boy Bill (Soliliquy)

One For My Baby

Mack the Knife

New York New York


No "My Kind of Town," according to my notes. I remember Frank Sinatra Jr. directed the orchestra, and the old man seemed unsure of the lyrics at times, but The Man could still sing. It was a goosebumps evening for me. I'm so glad I was there.

The floor seats were $45 apiece. I would have paid 10 times that much.
