Once in a while, great singers absolutely ruin great songs
Inexplicably, Frank's version of "Something" appears on his 1972 album, Frank Sinatra's Greatest Hits, Volume 2. This song receives way too much airplay on Siriusly Sinatra. I strongly object to AllMusic's "gorgeous arrangement" description.
The Streisand cover appears on her 2012 album Release Me. It didn't make the cut for her 1967 album Simply Streisand. And for a good reason.
One of my favorite doo-wop songs, "Once in a While" by the Chimes debuted at #98 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the week ending October 30, 1960. It spent 18 weeks on the chart, peaking at #11 in its 16th week.
Sorry, wrong number.
