It’s a "Marshmallow World" in the winter! The official voice of the season is a familiar one pallies. Breezes of Dino stirring the chilly holiday air has become an encouraging trend in our Dino-verse. Dino doin’ carols, fires doin’ chestnuts, snowflakes doin’ noses, it’s all one big collective snowball of yule tide!

Marshmallow clouds being friendly? Sun is red like a pumpkin head? Spring the tree, throw the lights, Dino has proclaimed the OH-ficial start of the season! The nog-of-egg filleth my cup as the voice-of-Dino filleth my spirits! Visions of sugar plums, and echoes of Dino dance in your head. As self-proclaimed Mayor of Dino-ville, I declare, officially, that Dino is The Voice of the Season!

Scoot over Der-Bingle, Dino’s oldie but a goodie “Marshmallow World” is the “White Christmas” of the 21st century! Very similar to the late blooming “Ain’t That a Kick in The Head”, “Marshmallow World” is experiencing a late growth spurt. Wasn’t long ago where if you didn’t own the LP, you didn’t hear this gem. And that’s a shame! The now familiar tune, recorded June 30th 1966 for Reprise Records, and released on the Dean Martin Christmas Album on October 11, 1966, wasn’t re-released into present day media until after 1998.




Lyrically "MW" is a masterpiece. Metaphors' paintings on cerebral canvases of celebratory holiday festivities. Marshmallows, whipped cream, pumpkins, snowballs, yum-ymmy's, sweet hearts and sugar dates. Dino is the rum in in this eggnog. The perfect elixir for your holiday frolicking. "Take a walk with your favorite girl". Wink wink pally.

December 21, 1967. The Dean Martin Show. Woo woo! Dino's having a blast. Ole Blue Eyes quips a ‘punkin head’. Dino-Cool and The Voice radiating audio warmth to the masses. Tuxes, and cigarettes singing snowballs and sugar dates. Crazy-daddy! Pick your pleasure, LP version of "MW", Dino 'n Frank version , or the Bob Hope special version. Like art, you can't explain it, but you know it when you see it. Pure Dino.


The Dean Martin Show




December 15, 1974, The Bob Hope Show. The King Of Cool eases into his green throne to endorse this holiday seasons version of "MW". It's a good one too. Dino in rare Christmas-Cool form. The tree adorned, the fireplace aglow, and Dino broadcasting to his Dino-zens the "State of the Season" address. Dino nails this version. The amber glow of his smoke, the casual step in his stroll. The next two minutes and thirty five seconds, all is good in the world. Your worries and woes are scramsville. Dino once again has pronounced the season full of sweethearts and snowballs. We are reminded what the season is all about.


The Bob Hope Special





Preferred listening suggestion:
Anywhere, anytime. Adorning the tree, or driving in your car. It's an audio candy cane pally. Ideally, for yours truly, this cut is perfect for a cozy winters night with that someone special. Perhaps an egg-nog or favorite vino. Make due with what you have, Dino will make up for everything you're short of. After all, you are now in his world.
Enjoy, and good night.

It's a marshmallow world in the winter
When the snow comes to cover the ground
It's the time for play, it's a whipped cream day
I wait for it the whole year round.

Those are marshmallow clouds being friendly
In the arms of the evergreen trees
And the sun is red like a pumpkin head
It's shining so your nose wont freeze.

The world is your snowball, see how it grows
Thats how it goes whenever it snows
The world is your snowball just for a song
Get out and roll it along

It's a yum-yummy world made for sweethearts
Take a walk with your favorite girl
It's a sugar date, what if spring is late


In winter it's a marshmallow world.
