Sinatra’s musical life:

Frank Sinatra began his musical career in the 1940s, started as an orchestra singer and ended up being discovered and sponsored by Columbia.

However, its success enters an upward spiral starting in the 1950s, when it switched to the Capitol label. Between the 1950s and the early 1960s Sinatra established itself as the number one in the United States. During this stage of his life, he produced hits such as “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” , “The Way You Look Tonight” and “Fly me to the moon”.

During the height of his life Sinatra became a total personality on a social, political and cultural level. He won everything he wanted and was the most influential male figure.

After leaving Capitol in the late 1960s, the artist is finally experiencing his decline in popularity, having to compete with the rise of Rock and Roll. However at this stage he produces his mythical songs “My Way” and “ New York, New York”.

The best songs of Sinatra for weddings:

The Way You Look Tonight:

The Way You Look Tonight is one of the 100 most representative songs of the United States cinema, it won Ócar for best song.

In his golden age Sinatra covered this song and made it a true icon of American culture.

The lyrics go as follows:

When it’s terribly off
When the world is cold
I’ll feel a glow just thinking of you
And the way you look tonight

Yes you are adorable
With your smile so warm
And your cheeks so soft
There is nothing for me but to love you
And the way you look tonight

“There is nothing for me but to love you and the way you look tonight”

It Had To Be You:

This song was produced in 1957 by Tony Bennett, but had a second air thanks to Sinatra’s reinterpretation, sweeter, more expressive and simple.

Talk about looking for true love and following your instincts until you do.

Why do I do it as you say, is it why I should set you free?
Why sigh Why don’t i try to forget you

It must have been that, something that lovers call destiny
He kept me saying “I have to wait”

I saw them all, but couldn’t fall in love- ‘until we met’
It had to be you, it had to be you

I wandered around and finally found – the one
It would make me be real, and it would make me blue

Even being happy, just to be sad – thinking of you
I’ve seen others who could never be serious
they might never interest me, or try to be the boss, but they wouldn’t

Because no one else gave me a chill, with all your flaws, I still love you,
It had to be you, wonderful you, it had to be you.

“For nobody else gave me a thrill with all your faults I love you still”

My Funny Valentine:

A jazz classic reinterpreted by the American singer to give it unmatched romantic nuances. If you feel that every day is Valentine this has to be the song of your first dance:

My funny Saint Valentine
sweet comic saint valentine
you make me smile with my heart
your looks are ridiculous
still you are my favorite piece of art

Is your figure less than Greek
is your mouth a little weak
when you open it to speak
You’re smart?

But don’t change my hairstyle for me
no if you care
stay little valentine
every day is valentine’s day

“You make me smile with my heart, your looks are laughable, unphotographable, yet you’re my favorite work of art”

Fly Me To The Moon:

In other words, one of the happiest romantic songs anyone could create. If you sit on the moon dancing clinging to your husband, this is your song. Our favorite of this author for the first dance, with this piece you have the advantage that it is short enough to dance it completely.

We like this song so much that we translated it phrase by phrase:

Take me to the moon
fly me to the moon

Let me play among the stars
let me play among the stars

Let me see what spring is like
let me see what spring is like

On Jupiter and Mars
on jupiter and mars
In other words, take my hand.
in other words, hold my hand

In other words, baby, kiss me.
in other words, baby, kiss me
Fill my heart with song
fill my heart with song

And let me sing forever more
and let me sing forever more

You are all that I long for
you are all i long for

Everything i adore and adore
all i worship and adore
In other words, please know the truth.
in other words, please be true

In other words I love you
in other words, i love you
Fill my heart with song
fill my heart with song

“You are all I long for, all I worship and adore, in other words, please be true, in other words, I love you”

The Best Is Yet To Come:

To feel that now a new life full of love is coming, there is no better song than this Sinatra title.

From the tree of life
I just picked up a plum
You arrived
and everything is starting to hum
Still, it’s a good bet
The best is yet to come
The best is yet to come, and baby
Won’t it be alright?

You think you’ve seen the sun
but you haven’t seen it shine
Wait for warm-up to be running
Wait until our lips have met
And wait to see that sunny day
You still haven’t seen anything
The best is yet to come, and baby
Won’t it be alright?

“You ain’t seen nothing yet, the best is yet to come and babe, won’t it be fine, best is yet to come, come the day you’re mine”
