Nancy Sandra Sinatra is an American singer and actress. She is the elder daughter of Frank Sinatra and Nancy Sinatra, is known for her 1966 signature hit "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'". Other defining recordings include "Sugar Town", the 1967 number one "Somethin' Stupid", the title song from the James Bond film You Only Live Twice, several collaborations with Lee Hazlewood such as "Jackson", "Summer Wine" and her cover of Cher's "Bang Bang". Nancy Sinatra began her career as a singer and actress in November 1957 with an appearance on her father's ABC-TV variety series, but achieved success only in Europe and Japan. In early 1966 she had a transatlantic number-one hit with "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'", she appeared on TV in high boots, with colorfully dressed go-go dancers, creating a popular and enduring image of the Swinging Sixties. The song was written by Lee Hazlewood, who wrote and produced most of her hits and sang with her on several duets, including "Some Velvet Morning". In 1966 and 1967, Sinatra charted with 13 titles, all of which featured Billy Strange as arranger and conductor.
Sinatra had a brief acting career in the mid-1960s, including a co-starring role with Elvis Presley in the movie Speedway, with Peter Fonda in The Wild Angels. In Marriage on the Rocks and Nancy Sinatra played a fictional father and daughter. Sinatra was born on June 1940, in Jersey City, New Jersey, she is the eldest daughter of the three children Frank Sinatra had by Nancy Barbato. When she was a toddler, the family moved to New Jersey, they moved again to Toluca Lake, for Frank Sinatra's Hollywood career. There, she spent many years in piano and dramatic performance lessons, as well as undergoing months of voice lessons, her father sang about her as "Nancy" in 1945. In the late 1950s, Sinatra began to study music and voice at the University of California, Los Angeles, she dropped out after a year, made her professional debut in 1960 on her father's television special, The Frank Sinatra Timex Show: Welcome Home Elvis, celebrating the return of Elvis Presley from Europe following his discharge from service in the U.
S. Army. Nancy was sent to the airport on behalf of her father to welcome Elvis. On the special and her father danced and sang a duet, "You Make Me Feel So Young/Old"; that same year she began a five-year marriage to Tommy Sands. Sinatra was signed to her father's label, Reprise Records, in 1961, her first single, "Cuff Links and a Tie Clip", went unnoticed. However, subsequent singles charted in Japan. Without a hit in the US by 1965, she was on the verge of being dropped, her singing career received a boost with the help of songwriter/producer/arranger Lee Hazlewood, making records for ten years, notably with Duane Eddy. Hazlewood became Sinatra's inspiration, he crafted songs for her. Bolstered by an image overhaul—including bleached-blonde hair, frosted lips, heavy eye make-up and Carnaby Street fashions—Sinatra made her mark on the American music scene in early 1966 with "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'", its title inspired by a line in Robert Aldrich's 1963 western comedy 4 for Texas starring her father and Dean Martin.
One of her many hits written by Hazlewood, it received three Grammy Award nominations, including two for Sinatra and one for arranger Billy Strange. It sold over one million copies, was awarded a gold disc, she appeared on TV in high boots, with colorfully dressed go-go dancers, a craze during the late'60s, created a popular and enduring image of the Swinging Sixties. A run of chart singles followed, including the two 1966 Top 10 hits "How Does That Grab You, Darlin'?" and "Sugar Town". "Sugar Town" became her second million-seller. The ballad "Somethin' Stupid"—a duet with her father—hit No. 1 in the U. S. and the U. K. in April spent nine weeks at the top of Billboard's easy listening chart. It earned a Grammy Award nomination for Record of the Year and remains the only father-daughter duet to hit No.1 in the U. S.. Other 45s showing her forthright delivery include "Friday’s Child", the 1967 hits "Love Eyes" and "Lightning’s Girl", she rounded out 1967 with the raunchy but low-charting "Tony Rome" —the title track from the detective film Tony Rome starring her father—while her first solo single in 1968 was the more wistful "100 Years".
In 1968 she recorded the Kenny Young song "The Highway Song" with Mickie Most producing for the U. K. and European markets. The song reached Top 20 in the U. K. and other European countries. Sinatra enjoyed a parallel recording career cutting duets with the husky-voiced, country-and-western-inspired Hazlewood, starting with "Summer Wine", their biggest hit was a cover of the country song, "Jackson". The single peaked at #14 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the summer of 1967, when Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash made the song their own. In December they released the "MOR"-psychedelic single "Some Velvet Morning", regarded as one of the more unusual singles in pop, the peak of Sinatra and Hazlewood’s vocal collaborations, it reached No. 26 in the US. The promo clip is, like the song, sui generis; the British broadsheet The Daily Telegraph placed "Some Velvet Morning" in pole position in its 2003 list of the Top 50 Best Duets Ever. In 1967, she recorded the theme song for the James Bond film. In the liner notes of the CD reissue of
I Want You Back
"I Want You Back" was the first national single of the Jackson 5. It was released on October 7, 1969 and became the first number-one hit for the band and the Motown label on 31 January 1970, it was performed on the band's first television appearances, on October 18, 1969 on Diana Ross's The Hollywood Palace and on their milestone performance on December 14, 1969 on The Ed Sullivan Show. The song, along with a B-side remake of "Who's Lovin' You" by Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, was the only single used in the Jackson 5's first album, Diana Ross Presents the Jackson 5, it went to number one on the Soul singles chart for four weeks and held the number-one position on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for the week ending January 31, 1970. "I Want You Back" was ranked 121st on Rolling Stone's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Considered for Gladys Knight & the Pips and for Diana Ross, as "I Wanna Be Free", "I Want You Back" explores the theme of a lover who decides that he was too hasty in dropping his partner.
An unusual aspect about "I Want You Back" was that its main lead vocal was performed by a tween, Michael Jackson. "I Want You Back" was released on October 7, 1969 and was the first Jackson 5 single to be released by Motown and the first song written and produced by The Corporation, a team comprising Motown chief Berry Gordy, Freddie Perren, Alphonso Mizell, Deke Richards. It is the first of four Jackson 5 number-ones released in a row and the first Jackson 5 song recorded in Los Angeles, California. S. A. in Detroit, Michigan. From late 1969 and on, nearly all of the Jackson 5's recordings were done in Los Angeles when the majority of recordings for other artists on the label were done in Detroit. Although Gladys Knight had been the first to mention the Jacksons to Berry Gordy, Bobby Taylor brought the Jackson brothers to Motown, Motown credited Diana Ross with discovering them; this was done not only to help promote the Jackson 5, but to help ease Ross' transition into a solo career, which she began in 1970 soon after the Jackson 5 became a success.
The Jackson 5 performed "I Want You Back" during all of their world tours, either as a full song or as a part of the Jackson 5 Medley in concerts. During their second-ever television appearance, the Jackson 5 performed "I Want You Back" along with Sly & the Family Stone's "Sing a Simple Song," The Delfonics' "Can You Remember," and James Brown's "There Was a Time", they performed the song on American Bandstand and the Andy Williams Show. Michael Jackson performed the song as part of the "Jackson 5 Medley" during all of his world tours - the Bad World Tour, the Dangerous World Tour and the HIStory World Tour; the song was to be performed at Jackson's This Is It comeback concerts in London, which were cancelled due to his death. The song was performed live at the Michael Jackson: 30th Anniversary Special in 2001, in which Jackson reunited with his brothers on stage for the first time since 1984; the song has sold six million copies worldwide. In 1999, "I Want You Back" was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame."I Want You Back" ranks number 121 on Rolling Stone's list of the'500 Greatest Songs of All Time'.
It ranks ninth on Rolling Stone's list of the'100 Greatest Pop Songs since 1963'. In 2006, Pitchfork Media named it the second best song of the 1960s, adding that the chorus contains "possibly the best chord progression in pop music history." A June 2009 article by The Daily Telegraph called it "arguably the greatest pop record of all time". Digital Spy called the song "one of the most enduring pop singles of the sixties"; the single has been awarded Silver certification on August 22, 2014 by the British Phonographic Industry Association."I Want You Back" has long been considered one of the most sampled songs in all of Hip hop music.

Savannah is the oldest city in the U. S. is the county seat of Chatham County. Established in 1733 on the Savannah River, the city of Savannah became the British colonial capital of the Province of Georgia and the first state capital of Georgia. A strategic port city in the American Revolution and during the American Civil War, Savannah is today an industrial center and an important Atlantic seaport, it is Georgia's fifth-largest city, with a 2017 estimated population of 146,444. The Savannah metropolitan area, Georgia's third-largest, had an estimated population of 387,543 in 2017; each year Savannah attracts millions of visitors to its cobblestone streets and notable historic buildings: the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low, the Georgia Historical Society, the Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences, the First African Baptist Church, Temple Mickve Israel, the Central of Georgia Railway roundhouse complex. Savannah's downtown area, which includes the Savannah Historic District, the Savannah Victorian Historic District, 22 parklike squares, is one of the largest National Historic Landmark Districts in the United States.
Downtown Savannah retains the original town plan prescribed by founder James Oglethorpe. Savannah was the host city for the sailing competitions during the 1996 Summer Olympics held in Atlanta. On February 12, 1733, General James Oglethorpe and settlers from the ship Anne landed at Yamacraw Bluff and were greeted by Tomochichi, the Yamacraws, Indian traders John and Mary Musgrove. Mary Musgrove served as an interpreter; the city of Savannah was founded on that date, along with the colony of Georgia. In 1751, Savannah and the rest of Georgia became a Royal Colony and Savannah was made the colonial capital of Georgia. By the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War, Savannah had become the southernmost commercial port in the Thirteen Colonies. British troops took the city in 1778, the following year a combined force of American and French soldiers, including Haitians, failed to rout the British at the Siege of Savannah; the British did not leave the city until July 1782. In December 1804 the state legislature declared Milledgeville the new capital of Georgia.
Savannah, a prosperous seaport throughout the nineteenth century, was the Confederacy's sixth most populous city and the prime objective of General William T. Sherman's March to the Sea. Early on December 21, 1864, local authorities negotiated a peaceful surrender to save Savannah from destruction, Union troops marched into the city at dawn. Savannah was named for the Savannah River, which derives from variant names for the Shawnee, a Native American people who migrated to the river in the 1680s; the Shawnee destroyed another Native people, the Westo, occupied their lands at the head of the Savannah River's navigation on the fall line, near present-day Augusta. These Shawnee, whose Native name was Ša·wano·ki, were known by several local variants, including Shawano, Savano and Savannah. Another theory is that the name Savannah refers to the extensive marshlands surrounding the river for miles inland, is derived from the English term "savanna", a kind of tropical grassland, borrowed by the English from Spanish sabana and used in the Southern Colonies.
Still other theories suggest that the name Savannah originates from Algonquian terms meaning not only "southerners" but "salt". Savannah lies on the Savannah River 20 mi upriver from the Atlantic Ocean. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 108.7 square miles, of which 103.1 square miles is land and 5.6 square miles is water. Savannah is the largest port in the state of Georgia, it is located near the U. S. Intracoastal Waterway. Georgia's Ogeechee River flows toward the Atlantic Ocean some 16 miles south of downtown Savannah, forms the southern city limit. Savannah is prone to flooding, due to abundant rainfall, an elevation at just above sea level, the shape of the coastline, which poses a greater surge risk during hurricanes; the city uses five canals. In addition, several pumping stations have been built to help reduce the effects of flash flooding. Savannah's climate is classified as humid subtropical. In the Deep South, this is characterized by long and tropical summers and short, mild winters.
Savannah records few days of freezing temperatures each year. Due to its proximity to the Atlantic coast, Savannah experiences temperatures as extreme as those in Georgia's interior; the extreme temperatures have ranged from 105 °F, on July 20, 1986, down to 3 °F during the January 1985 Arctic outbreak. Seasonally, Savannah tends to have hot and humid summers with frequent thunderstorms that develop in the warm and tropical air masses, which are common. Although summers in Savannah are sunny, half of Savannah's annual precipitation falls during the months of June through September. Average dewpoints in summer range from 67.8 to 71.6 °F. Winters in Savannah are mild and sunny with average daily high temperatures close to 60 °F. November and December are the driest months re
Statesboro is the largest city and county seat of Bulloch County, United States, located in the southeastern part of the state. Statesboro is home to the flagship campus of Georgia Southern University and is part of the Savannah–Hinesville–Statesboro Combined Statistical Area; as of 2016, the Statesboro Micropolitan Statistical Area, which consists of Bulloch County, had an estimated population of 74,722. The city had an estimated 2016 population of 31,419. Statesboro is the largest Micropolitan Statistical Area in Georgia, it is largest city in the Magnolia Midlands Region. The city was chartered in 1803, starting as a small trading community providing basic essentials for surrounding cotton plantations; this drove the economy throughout the 19th century, both before and after the U. S. Civil War. In 1906, Statesboro and area leaders joined together to bid for and win the First District A&M School, a land grant college that developed into Georgia Southern University. Statesboro inspired the blues song "Statesboro Blues," written by Blind Willie McTell in the 1920s, covered in a well-known version by the Allman Brothers Band.
In 2017, Statesboro was selected in the top three of the national America's Best Communities competition and was named one of nine Georgia "live, play" cities by the Georgia Municipal Association. In 1801, George Sibbald of Augusta donated a 9,301-acre tract for a centrally located county seat for the growing agricultural community of Bulloch County; the area was developed by white planters for cotton plantations that were worked by black slave labor. In December 1803, the Georgia legislature created the town of Statesborough. In 1866 the state legislature granted a permanent charter to the city, changing the spelling of its name to the present "Statesboro." During the Civil War and General William T. Sherman's famous March to the Sea through Georgia, a Union officer asked a saloon proprietor for directions to Statesboro; the proprietor replied, "You are standing in the middle of town," indicating its small size. The soldiers destroyed the courthouse, a crude log structure that doubled as a barn when court was not in session.
After the Civil War, the small town began to grow, Statesboro has developed as a major town in southeastern Georgia. Many freedmen stayed in the area. Following the Reconstruction era, racial violence of whites against blacks increased. In the era from 1880 to 1930, Georgia had the highest rate of lynchings of any state in the nation. Among them were three black men who were lynched and burned to death on August 16, 1904, near Statesboro. A fourth man was lynched in the month in Bulloch County. After a white farm family was killed, the white community spread unfounded rumors of black clergy urging blacks to violence against whites, more than twelve black men were arrested in this case. Paul Reed and Will Cato were convicted of the Hodge family murders by an all-white jury and sentenced to death on August 16, 1904, but they were abducted that day from the courthouse by a lynch mob and brutally burned to death. Handy Bell, another suspect, was burned by a mob that night. White violence against blacks did not end.
Area newspaper coverage of the trial and lynching had been sensationalized, arousing anger, two more black men were lynched in August 1904: Sebastian McBride in Portal in Bulloch County and A. L. Scott in Wilcox County. To escape oppression and violence, many African Americans left Statesboro and Bulloch County altogether, causing local businessmen to worry about labor shortages in the cotton and turpentine industries. African Americans made a Great Migration from the rural South to northern cities in the first half of the 20th century. Local effects can be seen in the drop in Statesboro population growth from 1910 to 1930 on the census tables below in the "Demographics" section. Around the turn of the century, new businesses in Statesboro included stores and banks built along the town's four major streets, each named Main. In 1908 Statesboro led the world in sales of long-staple Sea Island Cotton, a specialty of the Low Country. Mechanization of agriculture decreased the need for some farm labor.
After the boll weevil destroyed the cotton crop in the 1930s, farmers shifted to tobacco. The insect had invaded the South from the west. By 1953, more than 20 million pounds of tobacco passed through warehouses in Statesboro the largest market of the "Bright Tobacco Belt" spanning Georgia and Florida; the 1906 First District Agricultural & Mechanical School at Statesboro was developed as a land grant college, initiated by federal legislation to support education. Its mission shifted in the 1920s to teacher training. With expansion of the curriculum to a 4-year program, it was renamed as the South Georgia Teachers College in 1929. Other name changes were to Georgia Teachers College in 1939, Georgia Southern College in 1959. After this period, it became racially integrated and with development of graduate programs and research in numerous fields, since 1990 it has had university status as Georgia Southern University. During the Cold War, the Statesboro Bomb Plot was reported at the 12th RBS Squadron, a Strategic Air Command radar station for Radar Bomb Scoring.
The economy of Statesboro is based on education and agribusiness sectors. Statesboro serves as a regional economic hub and has more than one billion dollars in annual retail sales. Georgia Southern University is the largest employer in the city, with 6,700 regional jobs tied directly and indirectly to the campus. Agriculture is responsible for $100 mil

These Boots Are Made for Walkin'
"These Boots Are Made for Walkin'" is a hit song written by Lee Hazlewood and recorded by Nancy Sinatra. It charted January 22, 1966, reached No. 1 in the United States Billboard Hot 100 and in the UK Singles Chart. Subsequently, many cover versions of the song have been released in a range of styles: metal, rock, punk rock, country and industrial. Among the more notable versions are the singles released by Megadeth, Jessica Simpson, Ella Fitzgerald backed by Duke Ellington and his orchestra. Lee Hazlewood intended to record the song himself, saying that "it's not a girl's song", but Sinatra talked him out of it, saying that "coming from a guy it was harsh and abusive, but was perfect for a little girl to sing". Hazlewood agreed. Sinatra's recording of the song was made with the help of Los Angeles session musicians known as the Wrecking Crew; this session included Hal Blaine on drums, Al Casey, Tommy Tedesco, Billy Strange on guitars, Ollie Mitchell, Roy Caton and Lew McCreary on horns, Carol Kaye on electric bass and Chuck Berghofer on double bass, providing the notable bass line.
Nick Bonney was the guitarist for the Nelson Riddle Orchestra. Other personnel, as seen in the American Federation of Musicians contracts for the session include: The single was released in December 1965, the second song to be taken from her debut album Boots, was a follow-up to the minor hit "So Long, Babe"; the song became an instant success and in late February 1966 it topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart, a move it replicated in similar charts across the world. In the same year Sinatra recorded a promotional film, which would be known as the music video, for the song, it was played on Scopitone video jukeboxes. In 1986, for the song's 20th anniversary, cable station VH1 played the video. Sinatra told Alison Martino that other videos and performances are from TV shows like The Ed Sullivan Show and Shindig! The videos featured Sinatra wearing an iconic pair of boots; the song was used by Stanley Kubrick for a scene in his 1987 film Full Metal Jacket, where a Vietnamese woman in a miniskirt propositions a couple of American GIs.
The song was included in the 1995 film Then. However the song did not appear on the film's soundtrack; the song was included in the 1997 film Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery. In 2006, Pitchfork Media selected it as the 114th best song of the 1960s. Critic Tom Breihan described the song as "maybe the finest bitchy kiss-off in pop history". Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company used portions of the song for its 1960s ad campaign promoting its "wide boots" tires. Nancy Sinatra unsuccessfully sued Goodyear for using the song, claiming that it had violated her publicity rights; this song appears in the 2018 film Ocean's 8. UK promotional single"These Boots Are Made for Walkin'" – 3:03 "The City Never Sleeps at Night" – 2:54 Jessica Simpson recorded her own version of "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'" for the soundtrack to the film The Dukes of Hazzard; the version was included in the international version of her fifth studio album, A Public Affair. Simpson's cover was co-produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and was released as the soundtrack's first single in 2005.
It became Simpson's fifth top-twenty single in the United States, its music video drew some controversy because of its sexual imagery. Simpson's version of the song is performed from the point of view of her character in The Dukes of Hazzard, Daisy Duke, it has several major differences from Sinatra's version; the song's lyrics were changed completely as Simpson felt that they did not convey the feelings needed for the film. She rewrote the majority of the lyrics herself, although some elements were retained such as the opening line "You keep saying you got something for me..." and the spoken "Are you ready, boots? Start walkin'". Simpson added some new music to her version of the song. Whereas the original version did not have a bridge, she created one for the cover. A risqué rap-like/spoken breakdown was added after the bridge; because of the legalities of songwriting, Simpson has not been credited for the new music or lyrics that she wrote. The production of the song was altered as well. Producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis gave the cover a country-inspired production because of its relationship to the film The Dukes of Hazzard, but they added a more hip hop-like beat.
