#MusicMondays: Frank Sinatra ‘Songs for Swingin’ Lovers!’

Happy Monday everybody and thanks for stopping by my blog again 🙂 As I said in my 2019 Plans post, I have been planning a new series for this year, which I will call #MusicMondays. I have recently bought the 100 Albums Bucket List Scratch-Off Poster from Amazon and thought why not review all the albums from the poster on a random Monday?!

So let’s see what we got this week…

My opinion

To be honest, Frank Sinatra isn’t an artist I would usually sit down and listen to, although there is no denying what a great artist and entertainer he was. It is, however, perfect for a dinner party. Leaving it in the background will give a more vintage atmosphere in the room. I actually put this on at my in-laws’ house when they had the whole family over for dinner. My favourite track has to be ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’. It was quite tough to pick one so I picked at random because all tracks sound and are great just the same
