Welcome back mi amici! Are youse ready for 'nother Sunday Serenade with our Numero Uno Paisano, Dino?
 Great! Me too! Haha!!
 Found us a good one...kinda...eerie, actually! Haha!!
 It's got that "old vinyl sound". But pals...it's more than just that old sound that makes it HAUNTINGLY cool!
 It's lyrics REALLY seem to come from a DARK place. More of a "Halloween type vibe" really.

VERY different than ANY other one of Dean's tunes that I've jammed with!
 I'm not even sure WHERE it came from, pallies! Hahaha!!! Can't seem to track down any certain al b um it was originally on!

 Could this be Dino reachin' out to us from beyond?!
 Could this be some lost Dino-gem sent down from the Heaven's?!
 Feels like I fell asleep & woke up in 1944!
 The ghost of Dean is comin' to get me!!! Ahhhhhh!!! Man o man, pals...I'm gettin creeped out!!! Haha!!
Alright Dan...relax...chill out...just breathe...breathe...breathe... OK pals...I'm calm now. Just got caught up in the Dino-moment. Ha!
Took a little ride with Dean...I'm back.

Well pallies...let's ALL take this spooky little trip with Dino together now. Close your eyes...hold on tight... we jumpin' back to some days gone by & Dean's there waitin'.
 Let's take a stroll down "Memory Lane".
 Enjoy!



I am with you wandering through memory lane
Living the years, laughter and tears over again
I am dreaming yet of the night we met
When life was a lovely refrain
You were so shy saying goodbye there in the dark
Only a glance full of romance and you were gone
Though my dreams are in vain, my love will remain
Strolling again memory lane with you
I am dreaming yet of the night we met
When life was a lovely refrain
You were so shy saying goodbye there in the dark
Only a glance full of romance and you were gone
Though my dreams are in vain, my love will remain
Strolling again memory lane with you

Tomorrow In Dino-history: April 25, 1973



Kathy
Hey pallies, likes it was 42 years ago tomorrow, April 25, 1973 that our most beloved Dino marched himself down the aisle a third time and promised to love, honour, and cherish his youthful bride, Miss Catherine Mae Hawn.    As you look at the stellar weddin' poses, you can certainly certainly see how very very  much our Dino and Miss Cathy were in amore. Unfortunately our Dino's marriage to wife numero 3 lasted less then 3 years.

Permit us to share a couple of details 'bout the wedding.  The flowers alone cost a cool 85 thou, and our ever generous Dino gave his best man, Mr. Frank Sinatra, the gift of a solid gold cigarette lighter inscribed with his appreciato, "Fuck you very much."

Below is a pix of our Dino on his weddin' night with three of his daughters, Deana, Claudia, and Gina.  Don't our Dino looks so so dashin' with his girlpallies by his side?!?!?!?!

So so sorry that most likely we ain't gonna be on the 'net tomorrow and we certainly wanna make note of this important date in the life and times of our most beloved Dino!

Likes below the pix are some more  details of the weddin'.  Dino-rememberin', DMP

We still listen to his music and consume adult beverage.

 Hey pals...youse know that ol' expression..."Youse can't teach an ol' doggie new tricks"? Well, mi amici...I guess that goes for ol' Dino-holics too!
Lets me explain.
 Few days back...I had a GREAT idea to keep the Springtime groove flowin' with 'nother GREAT GREAT tune off Dino's "French Style" al b um.  Same al b um as last week's Serenade. SO SO perfect for the season!

Well...guess what?

 Man o man...it REALLY got me thinkin'...my brain is COM PLETE LY Dino-programmed! hahaha!!!

So...that bein' said...let's have a little "deja vu".

OK...here we go...hopes youse still dig on this encore presentation...it's 2 year revival...
"The Last Time I Saw Paris"! Haha!!
 Never gets old to me, pals!
 Enjoy!

The last time I saw Paris
Her heart was warm and gay
I heard the laughter of her heart
In every street cafe
The last time I saw Paris
Her trees were dressed for spring
And lovers walked beneath those trees
And birds found songs to sing
I dodged the same old taxicabs
That I had dodged for years
The chorus of the squeaky horns
Was music to my ears
Oh, the last time I saw Paris
Her heart was warm and gay
No matter how they changed her
I'll remember her ah that way
Dodged the same old taxicabs
That I had dodged for years
The chorus of the squeaky horns
Was music to my ears
Yeah, the last time I saw Paris
Her heart was warm and gay
No matter how they change her
I'll remember her that way
The last time I saw Paris
The last time I saw Paris
