Learning The Blues by Frank Sinatra

No one really sneaks a song into the number one spot but Old Blue Eyes came close with “Learning The Blues.” It managed to reach the top of the charts sandwiched in between two big hits, “Rock Around The Clock” and “Yellow Rose Of Texas.”

Sinatra always had a unique and intimate style and his ability to interpret a song was on display with “Learning The Blues.” It stalled at number two on BILLBOARD’S Best Sellers In Stores Chart and Most PlayedIn Jukeboxes Chart. The good news was on July 9, 1955, it began a two week run at the top of the Most Played By Disc Jockey’s Chart.

Sinatra would re-record the song for his 1963 SINATRA-BASIE album.
