Frank Sinatra conducted friend Dean Martin’s album Sleep Warm in 1958. Producer Sonny Burke said of Sinatra’s conducting abilities, “I have often seen him conduct at a recording session…he would sometimes conduct the orchestra with his hands. He has the most graceful, expressive hands you could imagine and the orchestra would obviously follow him like a hawk. Every little nuance he dictated with his hands, rather than talking about it.”
Martin said of Sinatra, “Frank is my dearest and best friend and he’s about the warmest guy I know. That exterior everybody sees is a lot of baloney. He’s a very warm man. He knows what he’s doing all the time; may not be right all the time, but he sure knows what he’s doing all the time.
“Y/N!!” Sam climbed off the bus before you, his eyes hooded
with annoyance. “Can you please stop singing for one second?”
You stuck out your
tongue at him but you fell silent. You had been singing the Lion King all day.
Well, you actually had been singing any
Disney song you could think of for the past three days.
“Sorry, Simba, but you don’t get to go to Disney World every
Sam rolled his eyes and put on his shades with a frown. “Why
am I Simba?” He asked tiredly, pulling out his ticket and yours, handing it
over to you.
“Because.” You smiled brightly, taking the ticket from him.
“You have his hair.”
You grinned and stepped out of his reach as Sam let out a
groan of exasperation and sidled into a line of people building up at the front
of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. As you
slathered on sunscreen on your shoulder blades and nose you looked around.
This was honestly a dream come true for you. You had always
wanted to go to Disney World, but you had never had the chance. But when you
got a call telling you that the Tower of Terror was haunted, you jumped on the
opportunity like a mad woman. The case itself turned out to be less than
entertaining; an old man had a heart attack on the ride and died in the
hospital the next day, so you burnt the body and everyone was good.
And now, you and the boys had an entire day at Disney World.
Needless to say, you were a little more than just excited.
