We knew Sinatra and, Jay-Z, you're no Sinatra.

"I'll be hood forever I'm the new Sinatra." Oh, yeah, punk? The Only #1 Song Recorded by a Father and Daughter - Neatorama: The #1 song on the very first singles chart published by Billboard magazine was "I'll Never Smile Again" by the Tommy Dorsey Band. The record featured a skinny, young lead vocalist named Frank Sinatra. The date was June 20, 1940. Frank's final charting hit was his cover of "The Theme from New York, New York." The record peaked at #32 in 1980. It made its last appearance on the Hot 100 chart on July 19, 1980, giving Frank an unbelievable chart span of 40 years -to the day!
