Thankfully, these guys filmed it on tape and shared this precious memory with the whole world. It’s not always a case these days for young kids to be Sinatra fans, let alone know the lyrics, but this little guy knows them by heart. If that doesn’t impress you enough, their heart-felt rendition will seal the deal.
Dad Matt Clayton, age 36 from Faversham, Kent and his 6-year-old son Archie belted out this heartwarming performance of the famous a duet between Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr., while coming back from the shop. The song is the jazz hit "Me and My Shadow", which was originally recorded in 1927 by Whispering Jack Smith. Frank and Sammy recorded their version 45 years later, in 1962 and added a special and timely lyric “Closer than Bobby is to JFK". Watching little Archie belting out “Like the wallpaper sticks to the wall" made us shiver with astonishment, but when dad Matt joins in, it dawned us – this is actually a song about the two of them! That is just amazing!
“Fly me to the moon, let me play among the stars, let me see what spring is like on Jupiter and Mars!” We don’t know if it’s even possible not to like Frank Sinatra. Frank Sinatra is a legend whose music crossed the decades from World War II to the 1990s. He was one of the world’s most beloved entertainers, drawing a crowd wherever he went. Jazz songs have never sounded better than when sung by his deep and powerful voice. Sinatra’s songs put everyone in a wonderful, singing mood and they often result in impromptu karaoke sessions. Indeed, belting out Sinatra is irresistibly exciting but how do you make it even more incredible? Make it a duet by singing ‘My Shadow and Me” by Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr.! Do just like this family does. When Matt and his son Archie were driving around in their car, Matt turned on the radio and there you go - My Shadow and Me came on.
