Rat Pack stars Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis recorded and performed thousands of songs over the lengths of their careers. Some songs they originated, and some were covers of songs associated first with other artists. Among the most unusual covers would be Dean Martin performing Johnny Cash’s I Walk The Line. And there was Sammy Davis Jr. singing Wichita Lineman, introduced by Glen Campbell. Not to be left out, Frank Sinatra also had an assortment of unusual covers, including Bad Bad Leroy Brown by Jim Croce, Simon and Garfunkel’s Mrs. Robinson, and probably the most unusual cover song he ever took on, which was Bang Bang, My Baby Shot Me Down. That one belonged to Cher, and still does.
