A singer that began his career in the early 40's and ended when he died in 1993.
Frank Sinatra could have very well been, in my opinion, among the greatest performers ever in history, his talent was beyond words and his persona indescribable. Some thought he had ties to the mob for the majority of his life,he had been seen with several mobsters yet denied any of the said "connections"
A few good examples of Sinatra's work would be:
The Lady is a Tramp
Nice and Easy
I've Got You Under My Skin
The Way You Look Tonight
The Best Is Yet To Come
Frank Sinatra (born 1915, died 1998) Known as "The Voice" or "Chairman of the board" was the coolest interpreter of swing music during his almost 60 years in showbusiness. Winner of an oscar in the early fiftees. Related with politics, showmen, mobsters and beautiful copacabana showgirls, defined the meaning of "coolness" in the early sixtees with his friends, also known as The Ratpack. His songbook includes such clasics as: "Fly me to the moon" "I've got you under my skin" and "New York, New York".
All this cats have much to learn from Frank Sinatra

I don't care what the directions say! I'm going to build this bitch like Frank Sinatra!
The greatest pop singer ever to grace the Earth. From his early career with Harry James and Tommy Dorsey, through his late Reprise years, Sinatra was called "the Signature Voice." His Capitol recordings are among the finest pieces of music in existance. Sinatra revolutionized the recording industry when he made his transition from Columbia Records to Captiol in 1952-1953. He pionnered the shift from band centered music, with a singer stuck in, to a style in which the singer was the center piece (it remains so to this day). In addition to being an indescribable singer, he was also a terrific film actor, garnering such awards as an Oscar for his performance in "From Here to Eternity," in 1953. Other singers preceeded and followed Sinatra, including Nat "King" Cole, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Ella Fitzgerald, and Tony Bennett, but none had the flare Frankie did.
Examples of these are: "Our Love is Here to Stay," "I've Got the World on a String," "I've Got You Under My Skin," "Come Fly With Me," "I Guess I'll Have to Change My Plans," and "Moonlight in Vermont." He had 20 consecutive top-ten albums, and his song "Nice~N~Easy" was song of the year for 1960 (take that Beetles!)
Me: "There's a definition on UrbanDictionary that has Frank Sinatra listed as the greatest pop singer of all."
Mr. Katchko: "Ooooh K, we aren't the least bit biased, are we?"
Me: "No, Mr. Katchko, we all know it's the truth."
1. Idyllic singer from Hoboken
the likes of which we havent seen in years. Said to have a voice that could "calm a lion and be a lion at the sam time."
2. Man who was the leader of The Ratpack
and whose career never ended until he died. In reality it still hasn't ended because so many people still listen to him.
His voice was so great people said it reminded them of Sinatra
That cat's so cool he looks like he could have his own Ratpack like Sinatra did.
Person 1 - Is that God?
Person 2 - Close, its Sinatra
Person 1 - Same thing
The Original Gangster/Musician. A pimp in all aspects of the word. Unlike todays so called "Gangsta rap stars" Sinatra was a badass yes still had class.
Frank Sinatra was way cooler and more talented then Notorious B.I.G, Tupac, and all the rest of the so called gangsta rappers put together.
