“In The Wee Small Hours arrived not long after Sinatra’s relationship with Ava Gardner collapsed, and it is this split that defines perhaps the all-time greatest break-up album. The wisecracking, finger-snapping Sinatra of popular legend is absent; this is a man alone.” Those two sentences sum up this one pretty well. I suggest that if you’re getting tired of all your old depressing music that you’ve been listening to for years, albeit because the lyrical content is most likely consistently applicable to your numerous turbulent romantic situations over the years, you should give this album a listen. You might discover how music that’s over 5 decades old still has some serious emotional power. I’ve tag all my mp3 files with lyrics too, so it’s a more enjoyable experience overall. Being a writer, lyrics are important to me.
Please feel free to comment. I never get tired of talking about music and I’d love to hear what you guys think about these albums. Plus, comments will keep me motivated to continue this project. 🙂
