Happy Birthday, ‘Ol Blue Eyes: Celebrate Frank Sinatra’s 99th with this playlist!

Airing Friday 12/12 at 12 pm & 3 pm ET on Siriusly Sinatra, Ch. 71

Among all of the love affairs, alleged Mafia ties, and appearances on the silver screen, Frank Sinatra is truly remembered for (and as) The Voice. This Hoboken-bred crooner pulled at bobby soxers’ heartstrings and sung his way through the great American songbook to stardom. The Chairman of the Board would have turned 99 this weekend, and SiriusXM is throwing a Swoonatra-worthy bash. Join Siriusly Sinatra for a lunchtime party at Patsy’s NYC (Frank’s favorite joint), and let these tunes take you through the Rat Pack founder’s golden age.

1. All Or Nothing At All – The signature Sinatra tune was actually not so popular when it was first released in 1939. Columbia Records’ 1943 re-release of the song helped put Ol’ Blue Eyes on the music making map.

2. I’ll Never Smile Again – Sinatra got his start singing with Tommy Dorsey and the Pied Pipers. This one topped the charts during his first year with Dorsey.

3. I’ve Got You Under My Skin – Cole Porter’s track got Sinatra-fied on Songs for Swingin’ Lovers.

4. One For My Baby – Another entertainment legend, Fred Astaire, danced to this diddy in The Sky’s the Limit. But of course, its popularity is awarded to the crooning birthday boy.

5. Ring-A-Ding-Ding – The album of the same name called for no slow songs! This up-tempo track is sure to get the party started.

6. Fly Me To The Moon – Another Frank Sinatra signature, this classic is sure to make you feel light on your feet.

7. It Was A Very Good Year – Wowing crowds, wooing women, making bank, and eating pasta. It’s hard to believe Frankie had any bad years.

8. Summer Wind – Of course, this number is one of the many love songs included on Sinatra’s Strangers in the Night album.

9. Theme From New York, New York – This Kander and Ebb classic became NYC’s anthem wayyy before Jay-Z’s Empire State of Mind burned up the charts.
