Frank Sinatra's "That's Life" Sheet Music on Chromatik

Frank Sinatra’s 1967 single “That’s Life” doesn’t exactly scream Tony Hawk’s Underground 2, but even the pro-skater’s music supervisor thought Sinatra’s brand of nonchalance and audacity would resonate with young gamers. In the context of Sinatra’s career, “That’s Life” was in itself an appeal to younger audiences. Stripping away the swing-oriented brass that characterized his early work from the 30s and 40s and replacing it with an Otis Redding soulful croon, Sinatra made himself a competitor with the budding Motown scene of the sixties. This might make Sinatra appear as the awkward dad trying to stay “hip” with the kids, but Sinatra owns this new sound as part of his identity.
