Frank Sinatra, Stamp

USPS

Frank Sinatra's performances at the end of his career were often so relaxed that he seemed to be mailing it in. Now, 10 years after his death, we can honor his incredible artistry and otherworldly insouciance by literally mailing it in for him—thanks to the spiffy new Sinatra stamp released this week by the post office.

The legendary singer and scene-maker's creative interpretations are fresher than ever on classic albums like In the Wee Small Hours, Songs for Swingin' Lovers, Ring-a-Ding-Ding and countless others. To savor the flavor, you can check out a remembrance featuring some inside scoop from Frank's "Come Fly With Me" collaborator, trumpeter Billy May.

But we prefer to paraphrase the Chairman of the Board's wackily slack version of "Come Fly With Me" with our own silly, celebratory lyrics: "Postage wise, it's such a koo-koo day."

We'll mail it in every day for you, Frank!
