FRIDAYS ARE FOR FRANK: “The World We Knew”
The world is changing—that’s all you can ever count on…
Frank Sinatra saw it change, made it change, and more often than not changed with it.
“The World We Knew (Over and Over),” based on German musician Bert Kaempfert’s composition, first appeared on Sinatra’s 1967 album The World We Knew.
The single peaked at number thirty on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in September 1967, but on the Billboard easy listening chart, it spent five weeks at number one.
“Over and over I keep going over the world we knew
Once when you walked beside me
That inconceivable, that unbelievable world we knew
When we two were in love.”
