Please don’t ever ask me to list off today’s musical talents, I’d never be able to! But, I do love the rat pack era. Below is one of my go-to Sinatra mixes that I love to have playing in the background at home while I work, clean or write. I don’t only love Sinatra, though, the whole rat-pack era I absolutely adore.
