H's Top Tunes

January 17, 2017

It’s highly unlikely Inspector Hawkins will ever be invited onto Desert Island Discs, but if the opportunity was ever presented to him he would no doubt select 10 tunes by Frank Sinatra. We limited him to one so we could get a fuller idea of the kinds of things he likes. Turns out he likes a singer, and a standard...and that he may be a romantic at heart. 

 

Most of his picks are things he would have heard growing up: Broadway standards, some soul tunes and a couple of cockney classics. H thinks that Rock and Rap ruined everything, and he acknowledges very little music made after 1985.

 

Frank Sinatra - That's Life
