Frank’s daughter!

As the daughter of one of the most famous singers in the world (Frank) and a mother with the same name as her (Nancy Barbato), life must have been, shall we say, unique, for Nancy Sinatra.

Born in 1940, she launched her career during the swinging ’60s, a label which she somewhat came to represent, mainly because of her smash hit These Boots Are Made For Walkin’ (1966). The video for this breakthrough single really captured the time perfectly.

But Nancy was no one-hit-wonder; she also had great success with Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down), also in 1966. This was from her second album released the same year as Cher released her “original” version.

On her third album, Nancy in London, we find On Broadway, which wasn’t much of a hit for her as it would come to be for George Benson twelve years later.

In 1967, Nancy also made an appearance on Frank’s album The World We Knew. Here they sang Something Stupid, which had already been released a few years earlier by Carson Parks, who also wrote it. However, it was Frank and his daughter Nancy’s version that became a worldwide hit. Later, the tune has been included in re-releases of her album Sugar.

In 1967, Nancy also sang You Only Live Twice for the James Bond film of the same name.

Even though her glory years were only a few during the late ’60s, Nancy kept releasing albums and singles and remained an active artist up until 2013.

Other notable tunes Nancy sang include California Dreamin’ (Mamas and Papas), Hotel California (Eagles), Killing Me Softly (Roberta Flack), You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ (Phil Spector/The Righteous Brothers), and Day Tripper (Beatles).
