Every now and then, an e-mail comes across the computer screen with a fairly good message. A friend of mine sent me this hyperlink to a YouTube video of the song, “Send in the Clowns,” sung by Frank Sinatra. I never was a big Sinatra fan, but this is a particularly haunting rendition and Old Blue Eyes does a fantastic job singing the song.
Originally, The video I first posted goes on to show clips of some of the very best comedians and comediennes of our parent’s and grandparent’s generations. In watching the video, one has to wonder why we no longer have such lovable and very talented funny people in this world anymore. Oh, we have a few, but not like those depicted in the video.
Evidently, whoever posted the original video removed it so I had to replace it. Here is Frank Sinatra singing “Send in the Clowns.”
For your best enjoyment, maximize the screen and turn up the volume.
