Close to You
Frank Sinatra Lyrics

Close to you, I will always stay.
Close to you, though you're far away.

You'll always be near as though you were here by my side.
No matter where - in my dreams I'll find you there
Close to me, sharing you're caress.
Can't you see you're my happiness?

Wherever you go, my heart will go, too.
What can I do?
It only wants to be close to you.

Wherever you go, my heart will go, too.
What can I do?
It only wants to be close to you.

Among the many outstanding recordings of his, this album still stands out. While not a huge hit with the public, it's always been a favorite among musicians as well as with the man himself. Superbly arranged by Riddle, flawlessly executed by The Hollywood String Quartet and their guests and perfectly sung by Mr. Sinatra.

@Jade Zee What led you to choose Jade Zee as a sobriquet, your lack of an imagination? Further, what are you attempting to say here, that Sinatra didn't have a "nice voice" and that I'm somehow "stupid" for suggesting otherwise? I'm curious to know what could have been going on in your attic when you concluded that I didn't "deserve a reply" whilst you were in the throes of typing one. Going forward (assuming that's your intended direction), see if you can remember to close a sentence with some form of punctuation and do likewise with your kimono prior to critiquing anyone for any reason.

@Classic Yeah It's been said "he could sing the phone book and it would be a hit." I'm not talking about "hits," I'm talking about vocal artistry. There's a reason he revisited so many tunes - he was older, wiser and had more to bring to them in that second or third reading. Night & Day and The Song is You are two he recorded four times - not counting live recordings. I think there's one other in that group but I can't remember what it was.

Classic Yeah

The one he did originally was a hit for him in 1943.

@Steve Silverman - Really great comments, Mr. Silverman. Though I'm not a musician, I very much agree on all points. Frank is my favorite singer and I wish I could go back in time and become one, too.
