They’re Gonna Take My Fedora For This, But….

Any song that Frank Sinatra did that Eydie Gorme also covered, Eydie Gorme did it better.

The scientific evidence is clear. Compare “The Coffee Song”:

Compare “Too Close for Comfort”:

Sinatra has the cool thing going on, but Gorme inhabits the songs. She sings them with warmth and feeling, not just voice.

The older I get, the less I esteem Sinatra as all that.
