Nancy Sinatra


Here are 3 great songs, beautifully performed by the lovely Nancy Sinatra.
Nancy Sandra Sinatra (born in 1940, in Jersey City, New Jersey) is an American singer and actress. She is the daughter of iconic singer Frank Sinatra and his first wife, Nancy Barbato, and remains best known for her 1966 signature hit "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'". For her fourth birthday, Phil Silvers and Jimmy Van Heusen wrote the song "Nancy (With the Laughing Face)", which her father recorded. Nancy Sinatra began her career as a singer and actress in the early 1960's, but achieved success mainly in Europe and Japan. Then she had a transatlantic number-one pop hit with "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'", which showcased her provocative but good-natured style, and which popularized and made her synonymous with go-go boots. The tantalising promo clip featured a big-haired Sinatra and six shapely young women in tight tops, go-go boots and mini-skirts, and is considered a classic example of high camp. The song was written by Lee Hazlewood, who wrote and produced most of her hits and sang with her on several duets, including the critical and cult favorite "Some Velvet Morning". Between 1966 and 1967 alone, Sinatra charted with 13 titles, all of which featured Billy Strange as arranger and conductor. In 1967 she paired with her father for her second number-one single, "Somethin' Stupid". In 1967 she also recorded the theme song for the James Bond film You Only Live Twice. The track is generally regarded as one of the best Bond themes. In 1968 she acted alongside Elvis Presley in the movie "Speedway". On December 11, 1967, NBC broadcast a musical-variety special entitled "Movin' With Nancy" (from which come the last 2 songs). In addition to the Emmy Award-winning musical performances, the show is famous for Nancy Sinatra and Sammy Davis, Jr. greeting each other with a kiss, one of the first black-white kisses in U.S. television history. She never stopped recording until now. In 2006 EMI released The Essential Nancy Sinatra – a UK-only greatest-hits compilation featuring the previously unreleased track, "Machine Gun Kelly". The collection was hand-picked by Sinatra and spans her 40-year career. Nancy Sinatra received her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on May 11, 2006, which was also declared "Nancy Sinatra Day" by Hollywood’s Honorary Mayor, Johnny Grant.
Enjoy!

I love her song "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down"). It's just her voice and Billy Strange on guitar.
