Fridays Are For Frank: “All I Need Is The Girl”
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner—the romantic equivalent of Tax Day for lonely hearts…
But honestly, don’t worry too much if you find yourself flying solo, because you’re in pretty good company.
Frank Sinatra and Duke Ellington paired up for the 1967 album “Francis A. & Edward K.”—their first collaboration together.
“All I Need Is The Girl,” written by Stephen Sondheim and Jule Styne, tells the tale of a pining bachelor who’s all dressed up with nowhere to go—or at least no one to go with…
“Got my tweed pressed, got my best vest, all I need now is the girl
Got my striped tie, got my hopes high
Got the time and the place and I got the rhythm,
Now all I need’s the girl to go with’em”
We’ve all been there… even Frank. So don’t sweat it. Just keep your head up and your eyes open.
Meanwhile, if you do have yourself sorted for Valentine’s Day, try not to forget just how lucky you are.
