Sunday Serenade with Dino: "Welcome To My World"

Hey pallies, it's Sunday, so welcome to Sunday Serenade with Dino. ilovedinomartin is thrilled to have 'nother guest Dino-commentator in the Dino-reviewer box for today's Dino-post. Her name is Kylie, and like last weeks Dino-writer Levi, she hails from down under. In fact, pallies, Kylie and Levi are neighbours, and truth be told, it was Kylie's house that was waffin' the Dino-tunes that first turned on youngster Levi to the irresistable sounds of our Dino!!!!!

As Kylie woulda tells you, she was a Dino-devotee before she was born! How can that be pallies? Well Kylie's father has been a life-long lover of our Dino ands thus Kylie was exposed to the Dino-beat while she was still in the womb.

Just knows you are goin' to loves Aussie Kylie's take on one of our Dino's most famous and most wonderful songs..."Welcome To My World." It's certainly one of my most favs and Kylie speaks from the bottom of her Dino-heart with the purest of pure Dino-affection for our Dino's beckonin' of his true pallies to join him in his world.

ilovedinomartin welcomes Kylie to our Dino-midst and welcomes all you pallies to sits back and enjoys a young Dino-lover's notes on our Dino's "Welcome To My World."
Dino-welcomed, DMP

I`d like to give my thoughts on one of the most beautiful songs Dean Martin ever sang and recorded.
A song which he obviously loved himself as he often included this song in his concerts.
The song is Welcome to My World.
A song we can associate with The Dean Martin Show.
Dean used this song in the 1970 season of the Dean Martin Show to introduce a medley of songs.
Dean was dressed in casual clothes and surrounded by The Golddiggers.
This was one of my favourite seasons, the shows always ended with Everybody`s Got a Little Song which fades out and then we see Dean appear with the beautiful Golddiggers seated around him.
I was sorry these medleys ceased after the 1970 season.
I loved this song growing up and I would definately include it in my top 10 Dean Martin Favourites.
I remember I loved the song first.
Then later I was lucky enough to see the television show where Dean sings this on the couch.
Intro...before relaxing on the couch.
Dean opens the closet door and who should come out ?
Dino`s worst nightmare Gladys Ormphby played by Ruth Buzzi who commences to punish Martin for his
remarks about her unappealing looks battering our poor Dino about the head with her handbag.
Gladys finally leaves much to Dino`s relief.
Dean straightens his hair, sits down on the couch, makes a funny comment about Ruth.
Then Dean pulls himself together says ok, straightens his tie and starts singing the beautiful Welcome to my World.
We stop laughing and find ourselves being drawn into Dean`s world and for a few minutes time stands still as we watch and listen to Dean..
Whenever we watch a movie, show, or play one of his songs we are living in Dean`s world.
A great escape from our own world of wars, poverty, crime and personal problems.
Everytime one of us were or are lucky enough to see a Dean Martin Show we find ourselves living in Dean`s World.
Dean invited us in every week for 9 years.

What can I say ?
Excellent description of not only one of Dinos best songs Welcome to my World.
I remember that Ruth Buzzi sketch.
Also a great understanding of the pleasure old Dino gave us back in the 60`s with his variety shows.
An escape from the hard times like the Vietnam war, our own moments of stress, the pressures of work, a place we could escape to for 1 hour a week.
Those were the days
BTW Lovely Picture Ms. Kylie
