Exploring the history of the groove

Love and Marriage by Frank Sinatra

“Frank Sinatra was born in Hoboken New Jersey to Italian immigrants in 1912. Young Sinatra learned music by ear, never learning how to read music. Yet he became one of the biggest musical icons selling over 150 million records worldwide, including this song “Love and Marriage” [pause for music] recorded for Capitol Records on August 15, 1955 for the album This Is Sinatra!, which won the Emmy for Best Musical Contribution from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in 1956 and later used as the theme song for the long-running 1987–97 Fox TV sitcom “Married… with Children”. The later version was recorded for Sinatra’s own label Reprise Records on October 11, 1965. This version cuts out the instrumental bridge that’s used for the end credits of the sitcom.”
