回顾这张专辑还属于是巧合。前些天在回家路上听Business Week的podcast - Behind the Cover Story里用Frankie的That's Life作引子说迪拜信用危机的问题时，突然意识到我应该重新听听Frankie的歌声。
Frank Sinatra的That's Life和My Way都排进我最喜欢的流行歌曲的前五。喜欢Frankie是因为他的歌声总是将人生的酸甜苦辣、悲欢离合以一种极其芝加哥的方式展现给听众。每次听他的歌，都能让我想起Casablanca这部影片，他们的共同之处都是能很随意甚至俏皮的告诉人们一个显而并非易见的道理：台下人生如戏、台上戏如人生。不论任何时刻，任何心情，Frankie的那句That's Life都让人回味无尽。
That's life, that's what all the people say. You're riding high in April, Shot down in May But I know I'm gonna change that tune, When I'm back on top, back on top in June.
I said that's life, and as funny as it may seem Some people get their kicks, Stompin' on a dream But I don't let it, let it get me down, 'Cause this fine ol' world it keeps spinning around
I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, A poet, a pawn and a king. I've been up and down and over and out And I know one thing: Each time I find myself, flat on my face, I pick myself up and get back in the race.
That's life I tell ya, I can't deny it, I thought of quitting baby, But my heart just ain't gonna buy it. And if I didn't think it was worth one single try, I'd jump right on a big bird and then I'd fly
I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, A poet, a pawn and a king. I've been up and down and over and out And I know one thing: Each time I find myself laying flat on my face, I just pick myself up and get back in the race
That's life That's life and I can't deny it Many times I thought of cutting out But my heart won't buy it But if there's nothing shakin' come this here july I'm gonna roll myself up in a big ball and die My, My
