    Default Crosby, Sinatra, Martin, & Bennett - Déjà Vu

    This is a "music appreciation society" type thread which will survey the complete Top 40 Billboard Chart hits of Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Tony Bennett.

    Billboard first began publishing charts in the 1890s but the concept of a radio station playing the "Top 40" did not develop until the late 1940s/early 1950s time frame.

    The 1930s saw the evolution of radio programming develop into a format in which a host would provide commentary between songs. This, along with the introduction of the jukebox, led to the establishment of the "Top 40".

    This thread will begin with the late 1940s/early 1950s solo chart hits of Crosby, Sinatra, Martin, & Bennett and will eventually segue into those chart hits which were released as duets with other artists for each of the above.

    This first post will provide the first "Top 40" chart hits of each of the four and afterwards two artists per day will be featured until the concept has reached its logical conclusion.

    In general only the A-side of the single will be featured due to the lack of quality audio uploaded B-sides.

    Dates used within the thread will be the US style - day, month, and year.

    Note: this will always be a links-only thread without embedded videos due to bandwidth issues experienced by forum members and thus will be accessible to all who wish to be members of this particular "music appreciation society".

    "Crosby, Sinatra, Martin, & Bennett - Déjà Vu" - Pretty clever, eh? -

    Your comments on any and all aspects of this thread are always welcomed but I must respectfully request that you refrain from inserting embedded videos...

    I liked the first two (getting ready to listen to the second two). I identified with the first one. I'm going to have to run that one by my wife. The second I surprisingly liked. I normally don't like Frank Sinatra but he sounded good on that. (If I were 'Sunflower' I'd be careful though!)

    Powder Your Face could definitely lift your spirits! I like those kind of songs. Dean Martin has a one of a kind voice and is great.

    Tony Bennett is so young in that song, I'm not sure I'd recognize his voice. But that's the kind of love song that is Tony's specialty. Love it!

    Thank.
