    Have you heard the new version of Frank Sinatra's song "Something Stupid"?

    In Athens they play it on the radio day and night.
    A guy named Robin Williams ( I THINK) and Nicole Kidman sing it together...

    I love it! The video clip is great also!!

    I decided that this will be my Christmas Song for this year...

    Here are the lyrics...Something Stupid

    :cool:

    I am sure you have heard the song , Cape Chef.
    It's old and originally performed by Frank Sinatra.
    Unless Al di Meola fans consider Frank Sinatra mushy ;)

    "It's got to be more
    than flesh and bone
    All that you've loved
    is all you own

    In a land there's a town
    And in that town there's
    A house
    And in that house
    there's a woman
    and in that woman
    there's a heart I love
    I'm gonna take it
    with me when I go."
    -From Tom Waits' MULE VARIATIONS.

    Even old frycooks have a heart. Music is the food of the soul.

    Athenaeus,
    You don't KNOW WHO ROBBIE WILLIAMS IS??!!:eek: :eek: :eek:

    He is only the one time heart throb of the boy band Take That who, for some reason that completely escapes me, went on to become quite a respectable pop star. Don't you read the gossip columns???!! Or are you only interested in gossip from antiquity?;) ;) ;)

    I saw hin on the news and although he is not my type he was an interesting face...
    I think that there must be at least 10 guys in the show business with that name... Maybe there is a Chef also with that name...

    Rachel tell me did you hear the last gossip about Onesikritos :D :D :D ??

    Panini, VERY funny :lol:

    Tom Waits wrote his poetry that way ;)

    Poetry is not prohibited Athenaeus, we just don't have a whole forum devoted to it. The Late Night Cafe is for anything else BUT FOOD. So go ahead and post...

    I don't think the Something Stupid song and video have been released in the US yet, but then I don't watch VH1 or MTV all that often nor listen to pop radio. Anyway, you can watch and listen to the video on Robbie William's website.

    Atheneaus: Was that a riding crop that Nicole Kidman is holding during that love scene? And what was that bikini she was wearing? The bottoms looked like a diamond-encrusted athletic cup. :confused:

    Is there a possibility that this video will not be released in the States because of this last love scene?

    They cannot cut it because it goes with the story and the lyrics.The She person suppose to be very indifferent to sentiments.
    So I guess that they won't release it...



    :rolleyes:

    Unlike many videos that they play on MTV, this one is actually very tastefully done. It should be ok for the censors. Everything is covered up although I saw it only on a 10 cm by 10 cm screen. However, I don't know if the song would catch on with those who watch MTV or VH1 and listen to Top 40 music.
