December 12th marked the 100th birthday of singer, actor, Ava Gardner sexer, and true 20th Century man, Frank Sinatra. Old Blue Eyes himself.
Sinatra was a complicated man, and he is beyond our judgment. Like Thomas Jefferson, we can only try to understand such a wild contradiction in life as a product of his times and his nature. For every nightmare story about the guy, there's a dozen about him as a humanitarian.
And now, the first Sinatra song I ever learned specifically because it was Sinatra: "Strangers in the Night". All you need to know about why I learned the song: fifteen year old boys are weird.
