Fridays Are For Frank: “I Wish You Love”
Our first “Fridays Are For Frank,” of the New Year—here’s a song about moving on…
With “Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind?” still echoing in our conscience, we’ve said goodbye to a fairly eventful 2016, for better or for worse… mostly worse.
But whatever, right? Let’s try to keep our heads up, and still be decent to each other.
“Goodbye, no use leading with our chins, this is where our story ends,
Never lovers ever friends…”
“I Wish You Love” is off the phenomenal It Might as Well Be Swing album from 1964, with Frank Sinatra accompanied by Count Basie. It was Sinatra’s first studio recording arranged by Quincy Jones.
The song itself is a French popular song, with music by Léo Chauliac & Charles Trenet and lyrics by Charles Trenet. Which makes sense, as it was the French who coined the phase “c’est la vie” after all.
“Most of all, when snowflakes fall,
I wish you love.”
Right back atcha, Frank…
