Frank Sinatra: Come Fly With Me
Lacking in the 'adventures in exotic locales' department? Not busy jet-setting to Bombay, Peru or Acapulco Bay? Today seemed like a good day to throw back to simpler times, and who better to do that with than Frank Sinatra? Answer: No one. The inspiration (above) was delivered by one of my favorite visual artists, Dan Cretu, who remixes images from different sources looking for (and finds!) something new to the eye and mind. His creation above reminded me of when I was sixteen, smoked pot for the first time, and spent an entire evening listing to Frank Sinatra -- and eating. Ol' Blue Eyes said "Come Fly with Me" and so I did, high.
Bonus: In true #TBT fashion, three years ago, Sam Friendy blessed Soundcloud with a "house/dance style remix" of the "Come Fly with Me" -- I'd say more sampled the original than remixed classic but, regardless, it's worth a tip of my pretend fedora.
