It’s Quarter to Three…

Here’s Frank, singing One For My Baby (Drinking Song #48)

This song was written by Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer for the 1943 musical The Sky’s the Limit. It was first performed in the film by Fred Astaire but popularized by Frank Sinatra. This song has been very well covered over the years by such performers as Perry Como, Chuck Berry (!), Etta James, Lena Horne, Iggy Pop (!!), Frankie Laine, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Lou Rawls, Marlene Dietrich, Marvin Gaye, Sammy Davis Jr., Tony Bennett, Bette Midler and many more. There are in fact a few performers since 1943 who have not recorded this song. I might have to do a little research to find them.

Have your say...
