Musical Interlude

Dean Martin, born on June 17, 1917, would have been 95 years old last Thursday.

With a hat tip to I Love Dino Martin for the following video, made as a 90th birthday tribute to Dean Martin:


  1. My favorite member of the "Rat Pack".

  2. Martin was a much better actor than he got credit for.

  3. He was a classy guy. I love that period of movies and music, although it belongs to my grandparents and parents.

    I've got a few Dean Martin "best of" CD's and well as Ray Charles, Sinatra and others of that era.

    Deano's version of that song is not my favorite, though. Bobby Bare does a great rendition, but Ray Price does the best job, his shaky voice really wringing out all the sadness of that song. I think it is the saddest country song ever written, but I guess you have to have lived through something like that.

    The imagery of the lyrics is beautiful. Kris Kristofferson is a brilliant songwriter.

  4. My Goodness! I'm still here.

  5. Working out technical difficulties

  6. BOO!

    Sorry! We're working it out.

  7. Sinatra. He was one of a kind. We were at an Italian restaurant a few weeks ago and all they music playing was Sinatra, what a pleasant evening it was.

    Right Truth

  8. That was nice. I miss those guys. they never needed to cuss or get naked to entertain us, they had class.
