«I’m for whatever get’s you through the night … whether it be the bible, a good woman or a bottle of Jack Daniels.»
Recently things got a bit … unpleasant. Not only because waiting in the cold in front of a building … some time before 7 a.m. … to do a test, then walking around the campus for 15+ minutes just to show the result to be allowed to do one’s work (which I love) is a bit degrading and stupid (testing without symptoms, that is). But hey, interesting times, I guess.
This being said, I tired out listening to Frank Sinatra when walking around to keep warm. And hey, that man can sing. I guess he was also the inspiration for Vic Fontaine in Star Trek DS9 (the songs by James Darren aren’t bad either.).
And yeah, “My Way” is a classic of Sinatra, but other songs are great as well. It’s a completely different time — and I think it’s very helpful to see these other times today.
They were, they can be again. Not as they were, but adapted and perhaps even better.
(And yeah, YouTube has a few nice collections.)
