#98: A duet!

Or two! I've never been able to decide which of these Keely Smith duets I like better, but I'm only making room for one on the list, so I'll go with "Nothing in Common":

Modern fans like me know these from Sinatra's Come Dance With Me CD, but they didn't appear on the original 1958 album. Apparently, they were put out as two sides of a single (that round object pictured in the video) and added to the CD as bonus tracks later on. You can purchase them from Amazon here and here, but if you don't own Come Dance With Me you might want to rectify that right away.

Both songs were written by Cahn and Van Heusen and arranged by Billy May.
