"Ain't She Sweet" was first recorded in 1927 as a piano tune by Frank Banta. The lyrics here are truer to the original 
than Sinatra's typically casual adherance. Frank Sinatra

"Ain't She Sweet" was composed by Milton Ager (1893-1979) & Jack Yellen (1892-1991) in 1927. It became a song that 
was xtraordinarily popular in the first half of the twentieth century, one of the smash hit songs that typified the
Roaring Twenties. Like "Happy Days are Here Again" (1929), it became a Tin Pan Alley standard. Both Ager and Yellen 
were elected to membership in the Songwriters' Hall of Fame.

Milton Ager wrote "Ain't She Sweet" for his daughter Shana Ager, who later grew up and became Shana Alexander, whom
many of you have seen on television and/or heard on radio as a political commentator.

Note: "Ain't She Sweet" was performed by the Beatles; recorded in 1961 with Pete Best on drums, and Bernard Purdie 
for drum overdubs, produced by Bert Kaempfert (!), released in 1964. 

The Beatles recorded this in June, 1961 in Hamburg, Germany. They played in German clubs 1960-1961, becoming much 
better musicians as a result. John Lennon decided to play this "as a march," whereas the Gene Vincent version is
much softer. A softer Beatles version can be heard on Anthology 3.  Most songs The Beatles covered were '50s R & B 
hits, but this was a 1927 pop hit that the fab four liked. 

This was John Lennon's first recorded lead vocal. 

Frank Sinatra recorded it in on the 10th of April, 1962,  in Los Angelos, after the Beatles did!
