Comment:

No, Frank didn't create the Great American Songbook all by himself; he got — and [i]gave[/i] — a helping hand along the way. The Academy Award®-winning duo of Jimmy Van Heusen & Sammy Cahn ranked among Sinatra's go-to songsmiths, and he turned to them for "The Second Time Around" — a love song not just about love, but also a love song for music itself — to launch his then-newly founded label, Reprise. If ever a song [i]begged[/i] for a second time around, it's "You Brought a New Kind of Love to Me," originally made famous by boater-topped [i]chanteur[/i]Maurice Chevalier, then smashed, thrashed, and trashed by the Marx Brothers, and finally Frankified (for all the non-Francophiles) on [i]Songs for Swingin' Lovers[/i]. And by the time Dean Martin took "Everybody Loves Somebody" on its booze cruise to the top of the charts, Sinatra had already recorded it — not just twice, but [i]three[/i] times, including this detoxed cover from the late '40s.
