I will turn OP on to a wonderful, vintage jazz anthology set since I know it won't become a popular thread when the Copycat Thread Thief rips off the idea for a whole, new thread about it.

An epic anthology of classy cocktail party numbers from the '50s and '60s called ULTRA LOUNGE by Capitol Records. There are like 30 albums, so all you need is a playlist of any volume on Youtube and you'll have HOURS of kitschy, cool tunes. Some is instrumental; some have lyrics.

But it's a completely transportative throwback to hipper, classier era:

I have two of ULTRA LOUNGE's "best of" volumes. They were in crushed velvet, leopard skin boxes!

One was the Tiki Sampler, which I highly recommend:

ULTRA LOUNGE has some classic jazz crooners like Dean Martin:

OP, Sinatra hated Strangers. He thought it was about two “fags” getting together.

by Millenialreply 25Last Thursday at 12:31 PM

That kind of makes me love it more!

by Millenialreply 26Last Thursday at 1:05 PM

R24 I LOVE that song.

Well, if you're going to do a Sinatra song, you might as well another Italian American singer from that era . . .
