Boots Were “IN” in 1967

In 1967, we saw “back-to-school fashions” that included lots of boots for the girls. In the sixties, we also saw lots of Go-Go Dancers dressed in boots.

In 1966, Nancy Sinatra had a hit song called, “These Boots Are Made For Walkin,” and it snagged her a Grammy Award. That record sold more than one million copies. Here she is singing her hit song – with Go-Go Dancers.

You may not recall this, but in 1967, Nancy Sinatra recorded the theme song for the James Bond film, “You Only Live Twice.” Here is clip of that:

Apparently, Nancy Sinatra was heard to say that she was scared to record the song for the movie asking, “Are you sure you don’t want Shirley Bassey?”

Another song was a hit in 1967. It is called “Somethin’ Stupid” and she recorded it with her father, Frank Sinatra. It was a number one hit in the US and remains the only father-daughter duet to reach number one.

Here is Nancy and her brother Frank Jr. singing her hit, with a spoof of “Somethin’ Stupid” supplied by the Smothers Brothers.

Frank Jr. died in 2016 at the age of 72. Nancy is 77 years old.

Best wishes,
