BONUS - I'm a Fool to Want You - Frank Sinatra


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I%27m_a_Fool_to_Want_You:

"I'm a Fool to Want You" is a 1951 song composed by Frank Sinatra, Jack Wolf, and Joel Herron.[1] Frank Sinatra released the song as a Columbia single. The ballad is a pop and jazz standard.

Frank Sinatra first recorded the song with the Ray Charles Singers on March 27, 1951 in an arrangement by Axel Stordahl in New York. It was the second song recorded at the sessions which began with "I Whistle a Happy Tune" and ended with "Love Me". He recorded a second version at the Capitol Tower in Hollywood on May 1, 1957, arranged and conducted by Gordon Jenkins, which was released in 1957 on the album Where Are You?. This album was Sinatra’s first recording for Capitol Records and his first stereo recording. Capitol also released the song as part of an EP, EAP-2-855, EBFI-855.

The song was released as a Columbia Records 10" 78 B side single in 1951 backed with "Mama Will Bark" (with Dagmar) as #39425, Matrix # CO-45185-1. The single reached #14 on the Billboard pop singles chart in a 7 week chart run beginning in June and #27 on Cashbox the same month in a 5 week chart run.[2] "Mama Will Bark" reached #21. The song was re-released in 1954 as an A side Columbia single with "If I Forget You" as the B side. Columbia also released the song as part of an EP, 2559, which also featured "I Should Care", "I Could Write A Book", and "If You Are But A Dream".

The Columbia recording appeared on the 1966 album Frank Sinatra's Greatest Hits: The Early Years, Volume Two. The song also appeared on the 1986 4-disc collection The Voice: Frank Sinatra, the Columbia Years (1943–1952) and the 1993 box-set album The Columbia Years 1943-1952: The Complete Recordings. The song also appeared on Frank Sinatra: The Best of the Columbia Years: 1943-1952 in 1995 and Frank Sinatra Sings His Greatest Hits in 1997 both on Columbia. In 2003, the song was included on the Sony collection The Essential Sinatra: The Columbia Years.

The song was featured on the 1992 Sinatra: Soundtrack to the CBS Mini-Series released on Reprise Records...

  From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 09/23/19, 5:27 AM - "GOOD MORNING ON A MONDAY, MONDAY!":

  The word for today is MOVE. If you have to go to work today: MOVE. If you don't have to go to work anymore: MOVE anyway. Young or old, fat or thin or just perfect, keep that body moving. As long as you can MOVE, you'll be able to MOVE. When you stop, however, it's over. So, get up and do something. Take in a beautiful sunrise and smell the morning air. Be it on the coast, in the mountains, in the city or the forest or even in the Florida swamps, it's always fresher in the morning. Do something with your day to keep going. Take a hike, ride a bike, go for a swim-whatever. It's only going to be a great day if you make it so in your head and with your mobility.

And, as an added aid, open up your heart and let out all that extra Spirit that you stored up from yesterday and spread the SONSHINE around. Now, get up little doggies and move. You'll feel better and the world will look better. Heaven's blessings to you all.

      Thank you, Jimmy!

I'm a Fool to Want You

Composed by Frank Sinatra, Jack Wolf, and Joel Herron, 1951


I'm a fool to want you
I'm a fool to want you
To want a love that can't be true
A love that's there for others too

I'm a fool to hold you
Such a fool to hold you
To seek a kiss not mine alone
To share a kiss that Devil has known

Time and time again I said I'd leave you
Time and time again I went away
But then would come the time when I would need you
And once again these words I had to say

Take me back, I love you
Pity me, I need you
I know it's wrong, it must be wrong
But right or wrong I can't get along

Without you
