"Just One of Those Things" is a song featured in Frank Sinatra's 1954 Capitol album, Swing Easy!. The song was originally featured in the musical Jubilee, and later appeared in Lullaby of Broadway and Young at Heart

This song wasn't recorded by Sinatra in a studio album again, but was still used in three of Sinatra's live albums, Sinatra Saga, With the Red Norvo Quintet: Live in Australia, and Sinatra ’57 in Concert. Being originally from a film, the song has been featured in numerous Sinatra compilation albums as well.

History Edit

"Just One of Those Things" was initially written by Cole Porter to be used in the 1935 musical Jubilee. Jubilee has been known as one of Porter's finest musicals, featuring grand music and satisfying comedy. This is also the same production that introduced one of Porter's most memorable works, "Begin the Beguine."

Since its creation in 1935, "Just One of Those Things" has become a common jazz standard featured and referenced several times among television and film.

Lyrics Edit

It was just one of those things
Just one of those crazy flings
One of those bells that now and then rings
Just one of those things

It was just one of those nights
Just one of those fabulous flights
A trip to the moon on gossamer wings
Just one of those things

If we'd thought a bit about the end of it
When we started painting the town
We'd have been aware that our love affair
Was too hot not to cool down

So good-bye, dear, and amen
Here's hoping we meet now and then
It was great fun
But it was just one of those things
