What are some good Frank Sinatra songs?

I'm into a wide variety of classic rock, blues and metal and I've heard about his music so I want to see what it's like in case I like it, any ideas what songs I might like? Maybe faster paced ones, but any good ones of his will do.

    I think you'll like the album "Sinatra-Basie : An Historic Musical First" if you like faster-paced songs.

    Most of the songs recorded are fast paced. The arrangement is greatly done by the great Count Basie and of course the vocal is outstanding.

    You should try the slower ones. "Sinatra Sings Only For The Lonely" is a great start for his "Saloon Songs".

    I'll give you a youtube clip to sample on them.

    This is from the album "It Might As Well Be Swing", but this is similar to "Sinatra-Basie" Album, with the same arrangement and all.

    And this one is from "Only The Lonely" album. The song is One For My Baby (And One More For The Road).

    EDIT : Wait, maybe you should start with "Songs For Swingin' Lovers". After some time I think you wouldn't be too familiar with the arrangements in the Sinatra-Basie albums, they speed everything up.

    How about going on you tube and typing in Frank Sinatra and listening to the songs, you may find words that would be specifically appropriate for you.

    all of them are excellent. Frank had the ability to take any song and make it his own. Try getting the reprise or capital collections from the library, they both have a wide variety of styles.
