    'Old Blue Eyes' would have been 100 years old today, his songs still stand the test of time and rarely a day goes by without one [or even two] being heard on the wireless.

    My favourites are Autumn in New York and My Funny Valentine but there aren't many from his repertoire that I don't like.

    What is this 'wireless' of which you speak, Sydney ? It sounds interesting.

    But yes, I agree with you. My dad was a great Sinatra fan and I remember him being played all the time in our house. I always liked 'Come Fly With Me' because the lyric sounded so upbeat and optimistic.

    Countless classic songs too many to label as my favourite.
    Not only the voice but his style and that era when style and fashion actually had something about it.
