Fall Out Boy and Frank Sinatra, A Multi-Generational Juxtaposition of the
A RESPONSE TO GYMNASTGIRL193'S EXAMINATION OF THE MUSICAL ENSEMBLE
"FALL OUT BOY," HEREINABOVE
With regard to the first paragraph, although dynamics have little to do with
the artist and much to do with the listener. We concur on strong
melodies, as well as lyrics with substance. Choruses are an added plus, in
certain instances. This includes not only Sinatra, but Dean Martin, Peggy
Lee, Ella Fitzgerald, Diana Krall, and The Sex Pistols. Sinatra also had a
very odd fan base, in his early years. While having substantial lyrics,
choruses, melodies, etc.
When Frank Sinatra first started out he was much more underground. His first
paying gig was at the Rustic Cabin in New Jersey. As he grew in popularity,
so, of course, did his fan base. Far from hardcore, porn hadn't even been
invented when Sinatra started out. All that there was along those lines were
steamy romance novels. Sinatra's fans in the 1940s indeed consisted of legions
of screaming young girls. Not having the advantages of MySpace nor ASCII
art, they resorted to wearing bobby-socks, screaming, fainting, and swooning
instead. I will admit when I hear Sinatra sing "I Get A Kick Out Of You," "Come Rain or Come Shine" or "Somethin'
Stupid," I, too feel more along the line of a screaming young girl... but that's
Not being a group, comparison can only be made via Sinatra's side musicians
and conductors. They are, like Fall Out Boy, far from a standard boy band. Among
them are Nelson Riddle, Quincy Jones, Louis Armstrong, Antonio Carlos
Jobim, Don Costa, Hank Sanicola, and Sammy Davis, Jr.. Although Tommy
Dorsey did, indeed, advertise in a trade paper for vocalists before discovering
Sinatra at the Rustic Cabin, Sinatra, like Fall Out Boy, is authentic. He can't
play an instrument, however. But he never lip-synched. Sinatra can actually
sing, and all of his musicians can actually multi-task, like playing the guitar
and paying attention to the conductor at the same time.
We indeed agree in more ways than I thought possible. Definitely. I think
Frank Sinatra is a singer to listen to. With over fifty major albums, including
Come Fly With Me, Nice 'N Easy, and the ever-popular Duets I
and II, Sinatra was on the rise and down the hill more than once, but always
ends up on top in my book. Keep your ears open for his smooth, hip, breezy sound
and his strong melodies and choruses. Maybe you'll like him, maybe you won't,
but Sinatra will always be a force to be reckoned with on the music scene. With strong melodies and choruses.
