Well, idk about exactly like him..but they are pretty similar. I just thought it was cool how they pull it off. But I think myself being an advent RBF fan. I like all their stuff.

The best covers are the ones that don't sound close to the original (imo). I can understand you are biased to RBF music but from my point of view (from the 30 seconds of the song I heard) this guy might as well just be in a bar singing for his friends as a goof. Perhaps that's what they were going for... I don't know.
Thanks for sharing though

just because my dad is listening to him during Sundays, I can say that made me like some of his songs. One of my top favorites is "Fly me to the Moon'.. cool!

Ol' Blue Eyes puts me in the best of moods. My world could fall apart and put on some Frank Sinatra or the music genre and I'll be just fine. Quite calming.

My favorite songs of his are "I've Got You Under My Skin", "It Was a Very Good Year", and "The Way You Look Tonight".

I bought a sinatra compilation album the other day from tesco's. £1 ....Bargain or what.
That's the great thing about the uneducated mass of music fans, they perpetuate a demand for the same god awfull music, which in turn depleats the price of all good music in the world for people like me to be able to afford

I played a rock version of "It was a very good year" at a BBQ 6 years ago... it was fun.

"In the Wee Small Hours" is the greatest album ever to sit alone and get drunk too.

Seriously.
