FRIDAYS ARE FOR FRANK: “Send in the Clowns”

In 1973, Frank Sinatra recorded “Send in the Clowns” on his comeback album, Ol’ Blue Eyes Is Back, which hit gold status.

“‘Send in the Clowns’ was never meant to be a soaring ballad; it’s a song of regret,” said Stephen Sondheim, who wrote the song for the 1973 musical, A Little Night Music.

The song soon became an evocative standard, sung by the likes of Barbara Streisand, Judi Collins—as well as a particularly moving rendition by Krusty the Clown.

Here’s Frank’s version—our favorite… No offense, Krusty.
