Fridays Are For Frank: “New York, New York”

Fridays Are For Frank: “New York, New York”

We tend to focus a lot on Sinatra’s Hoboken connection here at hMAG—but like the rest of us, Frank always had his eyes set on New York, New York.

As we prepare to commemorate the events of September 11, there really is no other song for us to play…

“Theme from New York, New York was the theme song from Martin Scorsese’s musical/drama film New York, New York (1977). The song was composed by John Kander, with lyrics by Fred Ebb.

It is now, and forever shall be the quintessential song about New York—while some might even argue that it’s Frank Sinatra’s most identifiable song.

Here’s Frank singing “Theme from New York, New York,” live in 1982, with an intro tease of Bernstein’s “New York, New York (On the Town).”

Feel free to sing along. You know the words…
