Musical Mondays: “Witchcraft” by Frank Sinatra
Although an oldie but goodie, Frank Sinatra can still pull strings on a woman’s heart.
Born in 1915, he received his first big break during the swing era of the 1930s when he joined “The Three Flashes”, hence making the group the “Hoboken Four”. Together they appeared on the “Major Bowes Amateur Hour” and attracted over 40,000 votes from listeners, thereby allotting them first prize. From there Sinatra would go on to work with Harry James, Tommy Dorsey, Nancy Sinatra, and of course- Sammy Davis Jr. and Dean Martin- along with many others. His career spanned over 60 years (one of the longest of any singer/songwriter), and he contributed to the Civil Rights Movement as well as funding for both the Democratic and Republican Parties.
The above song is just another classic from Sinatra. With his voice is so unique, and hence so thrilling and soothing, no matter the song he still can lighten the mood to feel loving, sentimental, and above all, romantic.
