I've Got You Under My Skin

  No video but this is a great example of Sinatra's connection to the beat. One of the all time great Nelson Riddle arrangements. It's all building tension, almost overtly sexual -- he (and the arrangement) tease you throughout the first chorus but you can sense something simmering, until finally in the instrumental, an orgasm of horns, and when he reenters the tension is rebuilt - climax -- break - resolution.

Born in a small coal mining town, I combine the ability to play I Got Rhythm in all 11 and a half keys with my love of washing machines to form a perspective so skewed that my wife insists on seperate seatings at dinner.
