Timelessness: Starring Nancy Sinatra

Timelessness is probably the most sought after quality in music. At least it should be. And for me, Nancy Sinatra is the timeless queen of cool. Certainly she owes that in part to her dad Frank, but with her versions of Lee Hazelwood's "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'" and Cher's "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)" she left her own indelible signature on pop music. There's no better example than the psychedelic "Some Velvet Morning"—her classic 1968 duet with Hazelwood.
