Frank Sinatra Singing It My Way - The Voice of Ol Blue Eyes

The heart throb of many a teenage bobby-soxer in the 1940's, Frances Albert Sinatra's career spanned over seven decades.

"Ol Blue Eyes," or "The Voice," as Sinatra was often referred, took the torch from idol Bing Crosby and continued the crooning craze until the end of his career in the late 1990's.

Sinatra began his singing career in his hometown of Hoboken, New Jersey with a local band called the Three Flashes in 1935. Once "Frankie" joined the group, they were renamed the Hoboken Four. In 1939, Sinatra teamed up with the Harry James Band where he recorded and released his first commercial record, From the Bottom of my Heart.

In November 1939, a huge milestone happened for the young crooner. Sinatra was asked by Tommy Dorsey himself to join his band; this would expose Sinatra to a vast audience and help skyrocket him to stardom. Dorsey and Sinatra's relationship was somewhat volatile due to contract negotiations that entitled Dorsey to one-third of Sinatra's entertainment royalties, for a lifetime. Sinatra was later let out of this agreement.

Sinatra launched his solo career after leaving Dorsey's band in the latter part of 1942. During his time with Dorsey, Frank released over forty songs, one of which, I'll Never Smile Again, claimed the top spot in the charts for twelve weeks.

Exuding an eroticism that gave him that sexy bad-boy image seemed to be just what the ladies were looking for at the time. Rumor has it; Ol Blue Eyes could make a young girl faint just by kissing her on the cheek.

Melodic songs, oozing with romance, accompanied by Sinatra's piercing blue eyes and rebel attitude, gave him that yet unmatched sex appeal with a younger female audience. Lyrically seductive songs like All the Way, Embraceable You, Fools Rush In, Autumn Leaves and Close to You, sent girls into…...

...Its better to save money for future Some people like to live a lavish life style, and some don’t. When it comes to spending money majority usually don't think about the future. They just want to spend all their money as soon as they have earned. One reason is retirement. Although I believe if one spend all money living a good life, by driving an expensive car, and living in a big house, you won’t have saving that means you will have difficulty in the future. For instance, my grandpa always taught us to save money. He said whatever I earned at least take a one dollar out each day and by the time the month ends I will have thirty dollars in my pocket without realizing. My grandpa has passed away, but he had seven children and none of them took care of him. I realized that if he hadn’t had savings he would not have enjoyed his retirement. He was very happy despite not having support of his children. For example, he used to go for a vacation every summer with my grandma. That is all because of his hard work since he save all his life instead of spent all money. The second reason is emergencies. No one knows what will happen next. We should have our savings in case of an emergency. One of my friend is like super advance. She drives an expensive car, always wears very expensive clothes like "Armani" and used to eat out at high class restaurants. I believe that she like to live a very lavish life and spend all of her salary on herself. For example, just the other day I......

Singing Learning Theory

...Singing Learning Theory Learning Styles Definition This approach to learning emphasizes the fact that individuals perceive and process information in very different ways. The learning styles theory implies that how much individuals learn has more to do with whether the educational experience is geared toward their particular style of learning than whether or not they are “smart.” In fact, educators should not ask, “Is this student smart?” but rather “How is this student smart?” Discussion The concept of learning styles is rooted in the classification of psychological types. The learning styles theory is based on research demonstrating that, as the result of heredity, upbringing, and current environmental demands, different individuals have a tendency to both perceive and process information differently. The different ways of doing so are generally classified as: 1. Concrete and abstract perceivers–Concrete perceivers absorb information through direct experience, by doing, acting, sensing, and feeling. Abstract perceivers, however, take in information through analysis, observation, and thinking. 2. Active and reflective processors–Active processors make sense of an experience by immediately using the new information. Reflective processors make sense of an experience by reflecting on and thinking about it. Traditional schooling tends to favor abstract perceiving and reflective processing. Other kinds of learning aren’t rewarded and reflected in curriculum,......

My Way to a Better Life

... Agency and they hired me as their employee. I worked there for six months before I found a temp-to-hire position that became permanent and I was in that position for two years. That manager persuaded me to return to school, actually making it a requirement for my annual appraisal process. It took me some time to decide that college was really something that I wanted to do. I have just transferred to a new manager and my chances for advancement working for her have improved greatly. In my eyes there were many obstacles in my way: money, time, which school, what degree and could I really finish it this time? My money issue was soon resolved because my company will pay a set amount of college tuition under their Educational Assistance program. Since time was an issue to me, I looked around at schools that offered weekend or online courses and another obstacle was removed because I found University of Phoenix. The counselor that I was working with explained that it would only take me 3 years to finish and earn my Bachelor’s degree and that is not that far off and I am determined to reach my goal this time. I know for the company where I am currently employed, I can not advance any further with out a college degree. For the longest time this did not bother me; I was content just to have a job and my only concern was for the income that I was earning to support myself and my daughter. My curiosity started to get the best of me and I researched the...

On My Way to Learning Where the Comma Goes

...On My Way to Learning Where the Comma Goes I have always dabbled in writing but never seemed to finish a project. I love to write journals and express myself on paper because it somehow feels more real than talking to someone. As if my thoughts on paper make them more concrete and mine. There have been countless poems, and a couple very short stories. I did at one point attempt to write a novel, but the punctuation is what I would always get frustrated with and quit. I am here to attempt to stop quitting. My goals are achievable; confidence is an easy thing to come by. You just have to put in the work and learn what it is that you are missing. When it comes to writing, I tend to be a perfectionist. It has to be right, but I am not even sure what right is. My goal as a writer is to be more confident on what I have put to paper. I just really want to be a better writer, and to know that the comma I put in that spot is there for a reason. I also want to be a better communicator because there are times when I get that look from people that says “I know you are trying to say something, but I don’t know exactly what.” Communication is also extremely important in my career as an executive assistant. There are constantly letters and emails that my boss has me write, and he trusts me to sound and look competent. Our writing style and the mistakes that we make can have a negative effect on people’s impressions of us. I will admit that going back to school is scary, and at first was...

My Way

...My Way When I was younger, I was never allowed to go out or even play with kids in our neighborhood. I spent most of my days inside the house playing by myself, I’ve always envied those kids who were able to play and hang-out with their friends. I grew up to be a very shy girl. I was always awkward when I’m with my classmates because I wasn’t used to being around people. I was afraid of so many things like: talking to people and trying new things. During my second year in FORUM, my classmate and I were invited to attend an Economic Summit in Manila together with two other seniors. I really wanted to go, but I expected my parents to disagree, but unexpectedly without any hesitations my parents for once in my life, gave me a “Yes”. I was overjoyed because it was my first time to travel alone without my parents. As we arrived in Manila, I was astonished; I was like a typical province girl who was amazed by the wonders of the city. I saw all those huge, high- rise buildings and all those famous universities that I only hear about from the television.We spent a week in Manila for the Economic Summit. During those seven days, I was able to meet a lot of people from different backgrounds: Top students, Successful Researchers, Economists, Famous Politicians and I was also able to meet people from different countries like: Singapore,Korea and Indonesia.On our last day, we toured around to visit the famous universities. Touring around was like a dream come true,I...

... collection: “Essays or Counsels: Civil and Moral,” suggests that didactic intent. In “Of Studies,” Bacon lays out the value of knowledge in practical terms. Bacon considers to what use studies might be put. He is less interested in their theoretical promise than in their practical utility—a proclivity more English, perhaps, than French. Bacon’s writing in “Of Studies” is direct and pointed. It avoids the meandering find-your-way free form of Montaigne’s essays. From his opening sentence Bacon gets directly to the point: “Studies serve for delight, for ornament, and for ability.” He then elaborates on how studies are useful in these three ways. And he wastes no words in detailing the use of “studies” for a Renaissance gentleman. One of the attractions of Bacon’s essay is his skillful use of parallel sentence structure, as exemplified in the opening sentence and throughout “Of Studies.” This stylistic technique lends clarity and order to the writing, as in “crafty men condemn studies, simple men admire them, and wise men use them,” which in its straightforward assertiveness exhibits confidence and elegance in addition to clarity and emphasis. Studies serve for delight, for ornament, and for ability. Their chief use for delight, is in privateness and retiring; for ornament, is in discourse; and for ability, is in the judgment, and disposition of business. For expert men can execute, and perhaps judge of particulars, one by one; but the general counsels...

Blue

...Blue is the colour between violet and green on the optical spectrum of visible light. Human eyes perceive blue when observing light with a wavelength between 450 and 495 nanometres. Blues with a higher frequency and thus a shorter wavelength gradually look more violet, while those with a lower frequency and a longer wavelength gradually appear more green. Pure blue, in the middle, has a wavelength of 470 nanometres. In painting and traditional colour theory, blue is one of the three primary colours of pigments, along with red and yellow, which can be mixed to form a wide gamut of colours. Red and blue mixed together form violet, blue and yellow together form green. Blue is also a primary colour in the RGB colour model, used to create all the colours on the screen of a television or computer monitor. The modern English word blue comes from Middle English bleu or blewe, from the Old French bleu, a word of Germanic origin, related to the Old High German word blao.[2] The clear sky and the deep sea appear blue because of an optical effect known as Rayleigh scattering. When sunlight passes through the atmosphere, the blue wavelengths are scattered more widely by the oxygen and nitrogen molecules, and more blue comes to our eyes. Rayleigh scattering also explains blue eyes; there is no blue pigment in blue eyes. Distant objects appear more blue because of another optical effect called atmospheric perspective. Blue has been used for art, decoration and as a clothing dye since...
