Something Stupid on an open thread


Tonight’s Friday night cocktail hour features Frank Sinatra and adoring daughter, Nancy.

“Somethin’ Stupid” was written by C. Carson Parks and originally recorded in 1966 by Parks and his wife, Gaile Foote, as Carson and Gaile. Frank Sinatra played Parks’ recording to Nancy Sinatra’s then producer, Lee Hazelwood, who recalled, “He asked me, ‘Do you like it?’, and I said, ‘I love it, and if you don’t sing it with Nancy, I will.’ Frank said, ‘We’re gonna do it, book a studio.’ Frank and Nancy’s version was recorded on February 1, 1967; Lee Hazelwood and Jimmy Bowen were listed as producers with the arrangement by Billy Strange. “Somethin’ Stupid” reached No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on April 15, 1967 and remained No.1 for four weeks.

The Truth Must be Told

Your contribution supports independent journalism

Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared. Google Adsense is the online advertising monopoly and they have banned us. Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have blocked and shadow-banned our accounts. But we won't put up a paywall. Because never has the free world needed independent journalism more.

Everyone who reads our reporting knows the Geller Report covers the news the media won't. We cannot do our ground-breaking report without your support. We must continue to report on the global jihad and the left's war on freedom. Our readers’ contributions make that possible.

Geller Report's independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our work is critical in the fight for freedom and because it is your fight, too.
