Last week, I hit the mark with two of the seven singers. Let’s see how I do this time.
The “Rat Pack” sounds like a fun genre, one they haven’t done in years. Will it only be songs sung by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin & Sammy Davis Jr.? Or will they stretch it to the likes of Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole and Perry Como? I presume the latter.
My guess is this will be another ballad-heavy episode.
Adam Lambert has shown he can sing any genre (save for country) so he’ll breeze through this. It will be interesting to see how Allison will handle this genre especially since most of the known artists in this field were guys. Here is an online radio station that plays this style of music.
I’m going to try my best with suggestions based on my relatively limited knowledge:
“Beyond the Sea” Bobby Darin
“I Left My Heart in San Francisco” Tony Bennett
“I’ve Got the World On a String” Frank Sinatra
“I’ve Got You Under My Skin” Frank Sinatra
“Who’s Sorry Now” or “Where the Boys Are,” Connie Francis
“Mambo Italiano” Rosemary Clooney
“The Lady is a Tramp” Frank Sinatra
“That’s Amore” Dean Martin
“Mr. Bojangles” Sammy Davis Jr.
“Smile” or “L-O-V-E” Nat King Cole
“My Way” Frank Sinatra
“New York, New York” Frank Sinatra (campy, campy!)
“Mack the Knife” Bobby Darin
“The Way You Look Tonight” Frank Sinatra & a host of others
“Fly Me to the Moon” Sinatra, Bennett
