Les H.

Nancy Sinatra is an incredibly talented female vocalist and a very attractive looking lady who I am sure made her father Frank and her mother very proud.

Watching this video it’s interesting to note the sex appeal and with a tad bit of sexual suggestion, but it’s compelling to watch Nancy and the back up dance girls flaunt that female sex appeal but not look like trashy sluts like all too many current era female performers and their just as crude and slutty female back up dancers often look in more current music videos.

This video harkens to an era were sexuality and suggestiveness could be more tastefully done but need not look like some seedy back ally peep show or prostitutes’ stroll.

It was a different time wasn’t it Les H.? The ‘suggestiveness’ of some of the womens’ appearances on the Dean Martin Show for example. It was all in good fun though.

Perhaps my favourite depictions of men-women interactions were to be seen on the Man from U.N.C.L.E. series. Robert Vaughn’s Napoleon Solo portrayal was “sophisticated-cool” writ large. The women were wholesome. I remember one episode where a farmgirl-type was falling for Napoleon and he clearly indicated that she should set her sights elsewhere as he was to dangerous to be with and would lead her astray. It was all so civilized.

Back to Nancy though… those duets with Lee Hazelwood were something else. Lee had a voice that could sell Ram Trucks.
