As much as I love Sinatra, I somehow St Louis Blues - Nat King Cole - Nat King Cole Sings His Songs From Cat Ballou And Other Motion Pict think he could convince me that he exists in this particular world - a stylistic universe where liars can be readily identified by the blossoms sticking to their prevaricatin' lips.

Nat Cole is the kind of talent that's hard to fully fathom in the A New Awakening - Julie Driscoll - 1969 of 21st century popular culture - where almost nothing means what it's supposed to mean.
Everything in the millennial era would appear to be ironic or sarcastic, a series of codes where Засрали Солнце - Закон Вне Закона is hidden and nothing is obvious. Yet Cole is precisely the opposite: when he sings about blossoms falling on the lips of liars, he doesn't mean it metaphorically, he isn't singing symbolically, he means exactly what he sings.
In fact, the song is precisely suited to Cole, not Sinatra or anyone else, great as they may be, simply because in this world that he creates, Cole himself would never have a blossom stuck to his own lips.

Even when Sinatra sings something simple, he makes it deeper and more complicated, and adds in gradations of feeling - Johnny Hodges-like microtones and emotional glissandos in between points A and B.
