we have nothing to lose and a whole world to see
Of course, this song is very appropriate today because, despite the much heralded ‘end of lockdown’, we English aren’t allowed to fly anywhere very much. Certainly we are prohibited from flying to the USA, and you Americans aren’t allowed to come here either. Unless you are a politician or a prince.
This makes Boris Johnson, Joe Biden, and Prince Harry the three most disliked ‘men’ by all good Englishmen and true. We can’t stand their wives either…..

the good old days of air travel
there is always room for the chairman of the board
Chances are that I’m already at my destination. so if you are not with me then think about what could have been. BTW I don’t much like Peru.
Some days I rival the king of cool.
Please listen with a smile.
cough, cough, splutter

people don’t go to New York to get a good night’s sleep
I’ve worked in London, Paris, Milan, Frankfurt, Amsterdam… But the very first time I went to Manhattan, got out of the town car on 5th, I knew that the City that Never Sleeps is something special. New York is suffering and bleeding right now. So this song is for her.
And, if you’ve never been to the Big Apple, do it before you see Paris and die.
Please listen and think of dancing at the top of the Flatiron Building.
And, I made it there.

Basically I’m for anything that gets you though the night
be it prayer, a woman, or a bottle of Jack Daniels
Yesterday I spoiled myself by buying a Sinatra double album. A very close and very special friend then talked with me about Old Blue Eyes songs, that she doesn’t play them so often ~ this is for her, and for every woman I’ve ever loved and lost .
Maybe liking The Chairman of the Board’s music is a guy thing, but we play Sinatra at the best of times and the worst of times. When you’ve just got a great job, when you’ve just lost your job, when you have just dated a fabulous woman and danced with her, when you’ve seen your woman kiss another man. This next song is the most passionate waltz there is, I know a woman I’d like to waltz with, at midnight, at the top of the Flat Iron Building, with this playing for us.
Sinatra live plays with the lyrics and the timing ~ hell he can talk through a song and make it sound great. You know Sinatra only ever did one take of every track he ever recorded.
Please listen with respect.
Black vinyl is so uplifting and relaxing
