The 15th Anniversary of Frank Sinatra's Death

It was fifteen years ago today that Frank Sinatra died at the age of 82. The cause was a heart attack. Rather than writing a long blog entry on how great Mr. Sinatra was, I thought instead I would let his singing do that for him. Here is his version of "I've Got You Under My Skin." The song was written by Cole Porter and introduced by Eleanor Powell in the film Born to Dance (1936). Frank Sinatra first sung the song on his radio show in 1946. He recorded it in 1956 for his album Songs for Swinging Lovers and again in 1962 for Sinatra's Sinatra. This is the version from Songs for Swinging Lovers.
