EVERYTHING HAPPENS to ME
 
 
 
This is one of my all-time favorite of the many great albums by The Chairman of The Board, Mr. Francis Albert Sinatra. My good friend Jimmy Starace gave this to me for a Birthday present one year and I’ve loved this wonderful Sinatra Album ever since. The album comprises songs that were Frank Sinatra’s best loved songs. His daughter Tina had the idea of producing album of songs that her father Frank Sinatra recorded that were his own personal favorites. Tina asked her father to pick these songs, and the album Everything Happens to Me was born. If you’ve never listed to the album and I’m sure you’ll agree that this collection of Mr. Sinatra singing his favorite songs is a beautiful and poignant one.
This is one of the most interesting and successful Frank Sinatra collections out there. Everything Happens to Me avoids the obvious hits and collects a number of the finest ballads and torch songs that Sinatra cut while at Reprise Records during the ’60s, ’70s, and early ’80s. It’s a regal collection that concentrates on the darker side of Sinatra‘s art. Instead of celebrating a cross section of the Voice’s career the way that so many compilations do, the album sounds like an elegy and has a strange cohesiveness considering that it’s drawn up from material that stretches over a 20-year period. Sinatra had recorded the title track numerous times throughout his career, but the previously unreleased version included here (complete with new lyrics) is his darkest and most battle-scarred interpretation. Even considering its lighter moments (“The Second Time Around” and the lyrically downbeat but wondrously swinging “Summer Wind”), this is a stark collection that almost plays like an original concept album about confronting disappointment, loneliness, and ultimately, mortality. That’s a lot to ask casual fans to embrace, but Everything Happens to Me ends up giving listeners who only know of the swinging Rat Packer more than a glimpse of the complexity and depth behind Frank Sinatra‘s art.
