You already know I’m not a Kidman fan. Au contraire, I find Nicole to be insipid and unconvincing. But I just can’t resist this little piece of retro music!
Robbie Williams duet with Nicole Kidman Somethin’ Stupid is, to me, a very beautiful melody I could listen to anytime and get a good vibe from it. It’s funny, it’s easy, it’s somethin’ stupid but I like it so much! Perfectly Friday Break! (you can read more about the song and plus the very famous Frank & Nancy Sinatra cover version of Somethin’ Stupid right after the jump!)
Though you could be tempted to believe that the original Something Stupid was written by the Sinatras, they only covered the original. Something Stupid was first recorded by C. Carson Parks and Gaile Foote in the mid 60s. They recorded and included the original version of Something Stupid on the album called San Antonio Rose. Soon after, it was recorded by Frank Sinatra with his daughter, Nancy and the duet was a smashing success.
Covered by countless artists over the years, Somethin Stupid is a classic love song, that special breed aging like wine: getting better and better with each passing year. I wish there was a Frank Sr & Nancy Sinatra version available, instead, this was the closest match I could get: Frank Jr singing Somethin’ Stupid with his sister, Nancy Sinatra for a TV show.
