Frank Sinatra was an American actor and pop singer. He was best known for being a founding member of the Rat Pack and for his hit recordings of the 1960s such as "Strangers in the Night" and "My Way".
When Disco Stu visited Praiseland to get a miracle from the statue of Maude Flanders, he had a vision of Heaven as a huge discothèque. Stu was surprised to see Sinatra there and Sinatra told him, "For me this is hell. Ya dig, pally?"
Behind the Laughter
Songs recorded by Sinatra have appeared in other episodes of the show:
- "Summer Wind" (sung by Martin Prince) is played at the end of "Bart of Darkness".
- "South of the Border" is played over the closing credits of "Kamp Krusty". However, the singer is not Sinatra(although Sinatra himself had indeed recorded his own version of the same song, albeit with a different melody than the version in the simpsons), but a sound-a-like from the very same time that Frank Sinatra was mostly active, namely famed Lounge singer Gene Merlino.
- "This Town" is played when Homer and Marge walk inside the Springfield Mall in "Trust But Clarify".
- "Somethin' Stupid" is sung by Selma Bouvier and Sideshow Bob in "Black Widower".
