If I don't see her each day I miss her Gee, what a thrill each time I kiss her Believe me I've got a case On Nancy with the laughin' face She takes the winter and makes it summer Summer could take some lessons from her Picture a tomboy in lace That's Nancy with the laughin' face Have you ever heard mission bells ringin'? Well, she'll give you the very same glow When she speaks you would think it was singin' Just hear her say "hello" I swear to goodness you can't resist her Sorry for you, she has no sister No angel could replace Nancy with the laughin' face Keep Betty Grable, Lamour, and Turner She makes my heart a charcoal burner No angel could replace My Nancy with the laughin' face

Kevin from Reading , PaFrank liked the song so much that he recorded it a bunch of times, the earliest being 1944 or '45 and the last version in the late 70s. A funny story told in one of the Sinatra biographies centers around his then-flame, Ava Gardner, protesting Frank's decision to sing this song at a nightclub engagement that Ava was planning on attending in the early '50s. Even though the "Nancy" in the song is his daughter, Nancy was also the name of Sinatra's first wife, so Ava didn't like him singing it anymore, particularly since Frank had very publicly dumped her and left his family for the beautiful movie siren. Despite her protests, Frank performed the song anyway, telling her it was a "good luck charm" for him.
Geffen Records made history on June 27, 1994 when Aerosmith's "Head First" became the first major label song made available for exclusive digital download. Download speeds at the time were so slow it took around 75 minutes to download the track.
The video for Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" pays homage to the classic 1995 film Clueless with the rapper playing Cher and featured singer Charli XCX portraying Tai. It was filmed at some of the same locations used in the movie.
