Am I the only one here who doesn't especially like Frank Sinatra?

I've never liked his singing. Since forever.

Anyone else out there care to admit to this?

I've always liked Frank Sinatra but I love Dean Martin. He just appealed to me more. His voice was amazing. And he was a big hottie





No, I'm not 90 yrs old.

Well, I don't -dislike- it, but that sort of singing just never appealed to me in general.

what i dislike is the general style of music. while i can respect anyone good at it as talented, i can't listen to it for more than 30 seconds at a time.

I've never really liked him either martha.

In the American music icon stakes, Bob Dylan takes him to the cleaners.

in the american music icon stakes, frank sinatra's "friends" own the cleaners, which turns out to just be a front for an illegal gambling ring, and if bob dylan ever tried to take anyone there, he'd end up wearing the cement shoes down at the bottom of the east river... baaada BING... fo-get abowt it

I respect him like I respect Victorian literature. While I love such classics as "Wuthering Heights," you can't pay me to read "Mayor of Casterbridge" again. However, that doesn't mean I can't appreciate it for its classic value to literature as a whole, while still personally disliking it. That's how I approach Frank Sinatra--a musical icon that I respect, but personally am not enthusiastic for.

PERFECT!

As one who grew up in Bergen County (see Frank's inmate tag in the mugshot) and hung out in Hoboken (Frank's home), I am a bit jaded. I love most of his music.

growing up, there was a NYC radio station (top 40/rock at the time) that would do "Saturday Night's with Sinatra." Although my parents disliked him, their friends (natives of the area, unlike my parents) adored him and would have the radio tuned to "SNWS" every Saturday night. Good memories.
