Danny G's Sunday Serenade with Dino: "The Things We Did Last Summer"

Ciao, mi amici!

 Welcome, one & all...guys & gals...dames & dudes!

 How's my Dino-peeps doin' this week?

Hopefully GREAT!

 Thins' 'round here ain't too bad!
Weathers been decent.

Days are usually cold.

 BUT...wee bit, by wee bit, gettin' longer!

We is slowly creepin' towards warmer days, my friends!

 I know...I'm jumpin' the gun here, pals.
 But...we is 1/3 the ways through Winter...& I'm already gettin' Spring fever!!

Youse too?
 I bet!

So,'s what I'm thinkin'. A "chilled-out" & "cooly-mellow" Dino-jam, for this week's Serenade.
 Somethin' relaxin' help us through our pilgrimage to sunny days.

 I is also wantin' to do a "crossover" type of Serenade...that will lead us into February.

A tune that will transition Dino's wintery coolness into a "pre-Dino-Amore Month" vibe!
 Are youse feelin' me, pallies?!

We need somethin' to just kick-back to.
 Maybe with a friend...maybe solo...with a glass of vino.

Either way, pallies...I'm feelin' a, "The Things We Did Last Summer", vibe, today.

Gonna reach for Dean's "A Winter Romance" al b last time, mi amici.
Youse still with me?!

 Nothin' better to do on these chilly kinda days...than hang with Dino...& just drift away.

Take my advice with this one, ol' friends o' mine!
 Nothins' more peaceful.

 OK, pallies.
We'll set our sights on warmer days & a month-long journey through Dean's MOST romantico jams!

Can't wait!!!

Hurry home, hurry home
Won't you please hurry home to my heart
My darling, if I hurt you I'm sorry
Forgive me and please say you are mine

Please come back bella mia
Hurry back, hurry home to my arms
To my lips and my heart
Retorna me
Cara mia ti amo
Solo tu, solo tu, solo tu, solo tu
Mio cuore
