Celebrity impressionist Rich Little on Frank Sinatra’s ‘You and Me’ – turning to a song by his old friend
Excerpt from WSJ article:
Rich Little, 78, is a comedian and impressionist. He is the author of “Little by Little: People I’ve Known and Been” (Dog Ear). He spoke with Marc Myers.
Back in the late 1980s, I was coming out of the first of my four marriages and was pretty broken up. My wife and I seemed to have it all—but we came apart anyway. During this period, I listened often to Frank Sinatra’s “You and Me (We Wanted It All),” from his 1980 “Trilogy” album.
When you love someone, you hope for the best. When the relationship crumbles, you wonder what happened. That’s what the song [by Carole Bayer Sager and Peter Allen] is all about to me. Love going sour.
