Frank Sinatra's Best Little Known Songs

Updated on September 17, 2012

Frank Sinatra has become a cultural icon the whole world round, and it's for more than his music. His blue eyes, acting career, and the classic fedora all add to the aura that still surrounds him, even after his death more than a decade ago.

Every one has heard the classics like The Lady is a Tramp, I Did it My Way, and The Way You Look Tonight, but there are so many songs that Frank recorded that have been lost in the vault, practically forgotten. It's to be expected with a career that spanned over fifty years, but it's also true that some are worth remembering. So here's to a musical legend, Frank Sinatra, and his forgotten classics.

Happy listening!

1. How About You?

It's nothing incredibly deep, but a fun, catchy tune paired with cute original lyrics make this a great one to sing along with. Turn it up and belt it out!

2. Love and Marriage

They go together like a horse and carriage. Definitely. And for all the right reasons, as Frank so aptly reminds us. Because Dad was told so by Mother. And the local gentry say the idea is elementary.

3. You're Sensational

Originally sung in the movie High Society to Grace Kelly, Frank Sinatra's slow rendition makes this song sensational. He played a newspaper man falling for the socialite who's wedding he's covering, and this was part of his wooing.

4. Luck be a Lady Tonight

This one comes from the musical Guys and Dolls, and even if Frank didn't get to sing it in the film he does give a great rendition of it.

5. The Best is Yet to Come

Michael Buble recorded this song for his album Call Me Irresponsible, but the Sinatra recording has become a bit obscure. Give it up for the original-- no matter how good Buble is (and he is incredible), nobody can beat the original.

6. Pennies From Heaven

Surprise! It's not a love song, but it's a great tune. And beneath all of the trivialities, it really does have something to say.

7. Let's Face the Music and Dance

Here's a secret: I actually like Nat King Cole's version better. But Old Blue Eyes does it well too, so it's strictly a matter of preference.

8. All of Me

It's the happiest break-up song you'll ever hear. So while it might not be the most sympathetic one for the situation described, it's still good.

9. I've Got the World on a String

It's not the most obscure one on the list but sadly enough it doesn't break the top ten. Perfect for singing along with, windows rolled down and volume cranked.

10. They Can't Take That Away From Me

Celebrate all of the little things that make the person you love unique, even if they sing on-key and don't wear hats.

      Who doesn't love Sinatra? I've heard most of those songs before. Such great throwbacks from another generation. My Dad loved Frank and listened to his albums while I was growing up. I don't know if it was because people often said he looked like Sinatra or not but he sure loved his music. Thanks for the memories!
