Song of the Day: 'Somethin' Stupid' by Frank and Nancy Sinatra


I've always been obsessed with "Songs for Swinging Lovers," but have never really dug very deep into Frank Sinatra's catalog. Then somehow I stumbled upon "The World We Knew," his 1967 album that featured his No. 1 hit with daughter Nancy. (The male-female parts seem wildly inappropriate for a father-daughter, but what can you do?) In addition, it includes two songs that were hits for Petula Clark -- "Don't Sleep in the Subway" and "This Is My Song" -- as well as a memorable rendition of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Some Enchanted Evening." 

Hardcore fans: What do you recommend next?
