Frank Sinatra – The Way You Look Tonight

Sin. Osc. Songs

An often requested song at my Frank Sinatra Impersonator show is The Way You Look Tonight.  It originally goes back to 1936 when it was sung by Fred Astaire in the movie Swing Time, for which it won the Academy Award as that year’s best song.  It was also a 60’s hit with nice harmonies by The Lettermen, and has been recorded many times over the years by various artists.

It was recorded by Frank Sinatra in 1964 with a chart by Frank’s favorite arranger Nelson Riddle, and popularized for a new generation in 1989 when that version was featured in a TV commercial for Michelob Beer.  Though that exposure generated many fan requests for the song, The Way You Look Tonight was never performed in concert by Frank Sinatra.
