    I thought I would respond in the absence of other responses to thank you for this thread. There is not a lot I can offer apart from an order of preference, then a sort of "more about me and what I have done" comment and a question. First, I have Sinatra, Bennett, Martin and Crosby in that order. To be frank, I am not especially keen on Crosby. But in time, I could probably say which Sinatra songs I like best.

    On personal experience, I was actually at Glastonbury to see Tony Bennett in 1998 which was a fantastic live moment. My question concerns Martin's "Ain't That a Kick in the Head" which is a song I am never quite sure whether I like or not. Musically, it is great. Lyrically, I am not so keen. It turned up many years ago on a free disc attached to a music magazine and I have always wondered how well known it is etc.

    Thank you very much for your kind words and for your response in support of the thread's subject matter but allow me to assure you that I don't pay much heed to the response that a thread that I create generates amongst the forum and neither should you nor anyone else - Create threads about subjects that interest you - finding kindred souls or even a single kindred soul who shares your passion is why we do what we do.

    It's important to always keep in mind that for every member who logs on there are at least 10 and sometimes even 20 times that number who are lurking in the background. One of my goals is to convince at least some of those lurkers to actually become forum members as a way to ensure the continued vibrancy of the site. I create threads about subjects that interest me with the hope that exposure to something that may not be quite that familiar to others will spark an interest in that particular sub-genre. It's neither "responses" nor "Likes" that I pay much attention to but rather "view count" - as long as there is a certain level of activity present I am quite happy to continue creating threads that both are and are not "mainstream" subjects for a classical music forum . If I'm destined to remain a "cult artist" with a small but dedicated audience that's more than enough for me. If I'm not genuinely interested in what I'm writing about why would I expect anyone else to be, eh?

    The best example that I can offer is your very own "World Music Song of the Day" thread which has more "views" than this thread despite mine having a week's head start which is great because it helps to strengthen the forum as a whole. I'm virtually certain that you would continue contributing to its development regardless of the number of responses or "Likes" as its obviously a subject that greatly interests you and it was quite an inspired selection that has found favour with a dedicated following who are thrilled that the thread was created.

    As to the order of names - it has nothing to do with order of preference and everything to do with my thinking that creating a thread entitled "Crosby, Sinatra, Martin, and Bennett - Déjà vu" as a play on words for "Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young - Déjà vu" was really just too hilarious for words... You will find that "just too hilarious for words" is my go-to answer for just about everything that I create whether they be posts or threads -

    untitled.jpg

    "Ain't That A Kick In The Head" is one of my favourite tunes - I'm not quite certain what it might be about the lyrics that gives you pause as they seem fairly innocuous to me as they're an expression of high-spirited affection -

    "My head keeps spinnin'
    I go to sleep and keep grinnin'
    If this is just the beginnin'
    My life is gonna be bee-yoo-tee-ful

    She's tellin' me we'll be wed
    She's picked out a king-size bed
    I couldn't feel any better or I'd be sick
    Tell me quick oh, ain't that a kick?
    Tell me quick ain't that a kick in the head?"


    It is best known for it's appearance in the film "Ocean's 11" a 1960 American heist film directed by Lewis Milestone and starring five of the Rat Pack: Peter Lawford, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., and Joey Bishop.

    Centered on a series of Las Vegas casino robberies, the film also stars Angie Dickinson, Cesar Romero, Richard Conte, Akim Tamiroff, Henry Silva, Ilka Chase, Norman Fell, Patrice Wymore, and Buddy Lester, and includes cameo appearances by Shirley MacLaine, Red Skelton, and George Raft.

    Despite never having actually charted it was a staple of Martin's live act and has appeared on every "Greatest Hits" release ever issued.

    Thank you for your excellent, informative post. Now that you have explained it, I suppose it isn't quite in the category of "Hit Me Baby One More Time" which has to be one of my least favourite lyrics of all time, (selectively) sensitive soul that I am. I did get the CSNY reference/joke. It was just that I went off on one of my order of preference lists while also being aware that to have Bing in fourth place could be very upsetting for some folk (although I hope not). Sinatra is where the personal connections/memories are.

    Our (forum) House seems to be a very, very, fine house and I feel that we have similar outlooks. I've built up a lot of knowledge in my time mainly as a consequence of natural curiosity but also with a lot of effort. But I'm not especially bothered in displaying what I know which I still regard as very limited. Mostly, I'm hoping that people will be introduced to a wider range of what I (one person) consider to be good things and for me to be inspired by other people's selections. It is a hope to share enthusiasms.
