Vocal by the coolest member of the Rat Pack (IMO). I think he had a few too many cocktails before coming onstage.


Hey pallies, likes 'bout time to share 'nother Dino-seasonal croon......one that is a class all by itself. That cool class category would be of "The Blues," showin' our most beloved Dino's diverse abilty to perform music of all types and stripes!

Today's devotion comes from the murder and mayhem blog, "Pretty Sinister Books  - Crime, Supernatural and Adventure fiction. Obscure, Forgotten and Well Worth Reading," provin' that youse just never ever know where our main man will turns up next.  Scribed by a dude tagged John, it is clear that he is deeply devoted to our Dino sayin'.... "Vocal by the coolest member of the Rat Pack (IMO)."

And, the Dino seasonal tune croon?   None other then "The Christmas Blues," which likes our Danny G. also recently shared on his "Sunday Serenade with Dino."    We don't means to be copyin' our great of great pallie Danny-o, but we have so so much Dino-appreciato for this Dino-scribin' pallie John that we just couldn't think of not sharin' his homage with you.

Likes we sez, we loves how our King of Cool not only rules supreme with the fun and fluffy stuff likes "Let It Snow" and "Marshmallow World" 'mong others, but that he can also use his incredible immense vocal abilities to takes on the blues as well!

We thanks John of  "Pretty Sinister Books" for a pretty cool homage of  Dino's "kind of swingy and upbeat" croon of  "a song that's all about loneliness."  To checks this out in it's original format, simply clicks on the tag of this here Dino-report.   Dino-proud, DMP

VIDEO: Dean Martin and "The Christmas Blues"

Here's an antidote for anyone like me who is tiring of "Frosty the Snowman," "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" and the rest of those novelty Christmas tunes being piped in everywhere you go.

I had never heard this song until yesterday and I thought I knew all the sad Christmas songs ever written. It's kind of swingy and upbeat for a song that's all about loneliness.

Music by David Holt, lyrics by the incomparable Sammy Cahn. Vocal by the coolest member of the Rat Pack (IMO). I think he had a few too many cocktails before coming onstage.

If the video doesn't play in the window below you can watch it here.
