Only The Lonely
No one ever sang a ballad better than Frank Sinatra. This is Only The Lonely from a 1958 recording. The song, written by Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen, has a very subtle melody requiring great vocal technique to pull it off effectively. Sinatra's version features one of the many wonderful arrangements Nelson Riddle created for Frank.
