FRIDAYS ARE FOR FRANK: “If I Had You” (Royal Wedding Edition)

FRIDAYS ARE FOR FRANK: “If I Had You” (Royal Wedding Edition)

“I could be a king (dear) on crown
Humble or poor – rich or renowned
There is nothing I couldn’t do
If I had you…”

With the Royal Wedding bells going Ring-A-Ding-Ding this weekend, we figured a Sinatra toast was in order for the happy couple.

Speaking of toast, Elysian Cafe will be hosting a full English Brekkie in honor of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s spectacular nuptial event bright and early on Saturday morning, with a portion of the proceeds going toward the Jubilee Center.

“If I Had You” was written in 1928, when Harry’s Grandmother was only two years old. The song became a jazz standard, performed by dozens of artists. Frank Sinatra first recorded it in 1947 on The Voice of Frank Sinatra, then again for A Swingin’ Affair! (1957), and it appeared one more time on Sinatra Sings Great Songs from Great Britain (1962)—which explains why we’re playing it for the happy couple.

All the best, you two…
