For some reason I used to always confuse these three old fashioned songs. The fact that I did featured in a dream somehow recently. I wonder what tenuous thread binds them together for me ? They were all sung by either Frank Sinatra, or Bing Crosby. But I think it was more the attitude of the songs that I saw as being connected, and not the fact that a similar male voice was singing them. ( Although I have some admiration for both singers, I've never been a rabid fan of either. ) It almost seems like the songs embody a vanished culture in America, like Googie architecture or something.
