In The 1970s Frank Sinatra








Old Blue Eyes himself with a few hits in the 1970s. Of course Frank was the huge star in the 1940s, 1950s and the 1960s. With hits like Stardust and Me And My Shadow. The man was a living legend in song and in film and in his dealings with the ladies and the mob.

The 1970s Frank Sinatra some memorable singles too.  His single from 1969 called My Way re-entered the charts in 1970, in fact it spent nearly a hundred weeks in the top forty. Most artists would be happy with five or six weeks!  The song was written by Paul Anka who had it translated from an original French song in 1967.

The song has a simple premise as it is about a man looking back on his life. The good and the bad, but through it all he did things his way. The song came back several times in the 1970s with big chart hit versions from Elvis and the Sex Pistols.

Frank was born in 1915 and died in 1998. In that time in the U.S. he had over 53 top thirty albums and countless singles. He was the man who gave us the original Brat Pack with his friends and fellow singers Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jnr.

Franks had another single hit in 1970 called Something which was a Beatles cover. Frank has been to the UK many times performing his concerts including in 1975 at the Royal Albert Hall where he performed twenty songs in one and a half hours.

In 1971 Frank had another UK chart hit with I Drink The Wine.
