1. Luck Be A Lady

"Luck Be a Lady" is a song written and composed by Frank Loesser in 1950 and first performed by Robert Alda. The song was featured in the musical Guys and Dolls and sang by Marlon Brando which upset Frank Sinatra. The lyrics relate the character's point of view of a gambler, Sky Masterson, who hopes that he will win a bet, the outcome of which will decide whether or not he is able to save his relationship with the girl of his dreams.
Sinatra was instrumental in adapting the song "Luck Be A Lady" and was the one that told Billy May how to arrange it and changed the tempo a bit so it would be different. It was perfect for Sinatra.
