Songs for Swingin' Lovers

On this date (12/12) in 1914, Frank Sinatra is born in Hoboken, N.J. His biggest pop hit in the modern era is "Somethin' Stupid," a duet with his daughter, Nancy, which tops Billboard's Hot 100 for four weeks in 1967. He wins an Oscar in 1953 for his role in "From Here to Eternity." He is awarded a Lifetime Achievement Grammy in 1965. (courtesy Billboard's website)

Huh. I always thought "Somethin' Stupid" was a drunken band consisting of three bass players and a drummer.
