In 1964, Dean Martin recorded "Everybody Loves Somebody," a song co-written in 1947 by his pianist/accompanist Ken Lane. It went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, sold more than a million copies, and became the theme song of his NBC-TV variety series (1965-1974). The words "Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime" are inscribed on Dean Martin's grave marker.

"Everybody Loves Somebody" really has stood the test of time. I like both of our Dino's versions of the tune -- the hit version and the more subdued version on Dream with Dean.

I think that our Dino really did appreciate the song too. After all, wasn't this tune composed by Ken Lane, who also composed "Every Minute, Every Hour"?
