Danny G's SPECIAL Happy Mama's Day Sunday Serenade with Dino: "Mama Roma"

 Welcome back, mi amici!

Let me start today's "Sunday Serenade with Dino" off with a GIGANTICO Happy Mama's Day to ALL the Dino-lovin' moms out there! 

What a BEA U TI FUL day it is too! 

A happy Spring day like this is PERFECTO to help us celebrate these VERY special ladies! 

After all, pals...we wouldn't be jammin' right here...right now...with Dino...if it wasn't for Dear ol' Mom! 

And don't forget...Moms come in ALL forms, pallies! 

She can be an Aunt...an older Sister...or just a good good friend who's helped you through tough times.  


Now, my friends...I wanted to share a SO SO PRETTY & SO SO FUN  little tune for this LOVELY LOVELY Day! 

Well...I keeps goin' back to a BEA U TI FUL Italiano-type croon...which I seem to pick every year, Haha!! 

Now, pallies o' mine...I know Dino croons SO SO many pretty & fun jams...I pretty much had my pick! 

But, pallies...this one has a special little somethin' 'bout it. 

Maybe it's 'cause the "mama" in these lyrics isn't a person...but a place. Yes...Bella Roma! Beautiful Rome! 

What a place it must be! Huh, pals? 

What a place to find AMORE! 


"Mama Roma" is a tune 'bout two sweethearts meetin' & fallin' head over heels in love in this VERY special city! 

Ahhh pals...SO ROMANTICO! Haha!! 


OK...let's get to the Mother's Day croonin'! 


This one is SURE to get all youse mamas in a GREAT GREAT mood today! Youse deserve it too...for ALL that youse do...& ALL that youse mean to some lucky somebody...& I mean pets too! Haha!! 


This one's for my own Mama G. & ALL the ladies, here at our Cool Cool little blog! 

Have a GREAT day & let the Dino serenades play forever! 


Ciao!

Danny G's Sunday Serenade with Dino: "Amor Mio"

 Man o man, pals...now THIS is Spring! 

BEA U TI FUL blue skies & warm, gentle breezes just breezin' 'round! 

These are the days I live for, mi amici. 

Even the very air I'm breathin' today silently SCREAMS Spring! Haha!! "Silently screams?" Is that even possible, pallies? Ha! Well...that's how it feels to me, anyway. 

All a day like this needs...to be perfecto...is the soft, silky croon of our man amongst men, Dino! 


Now, my friends...I know I don't need to tell youse this...but...when you mix warm, Springtime weather...with Dean's easy-listenin', swoonin' type croon...youse just can't help but gettin' that feelin' that L.O.V.E is in the air. 

After all, pals...Spring IS the season of amore! 

Agree? 

Yea...no doubt. 


This is the time of year when all new & wonderful thins' start to happen, my friends. Start to bloom. 

Flowers...trees...and yes, even romance! Haha!! 


Well...get out there! 

Thins' is finally startin' to get a little better. Hopefully it continues to move forward & life let's us get back to livin'! 


OK...'nough from me. Let's get to this week's Serenade! 


Picked us a cool cool & romantico Dino-jam. 

Haven't heard this one in a lonnnng time, pals. 

I think it's gonna get all my fellow Dino-philes floatin' on air & put some stars in your eyes. 

Dino just has that affect on us. 


Found this one on a 1973 vinyl 45. Released on Reprise. "Amor Mio". 


Can't waits' to get this one spinnin', pallies! 

Let it play over & over...& inhale every note! 
This is the GOOD stuff! 
Haha!! 

Enjoy, my friends! 
Ciao!

Danny G's Sunday Serenade with Dino: "The Last Time I Saw Paris"

 Welcome, mi amici! 

So So glad youse stopped by...on this rainy little Spring mornin'. 

Hope everyone is in good spirits & TOTALLY absorbin' this TRULY magical combination of April & Dino croons! 

Such a great time of year, pals! 

The TRUE beginnin' of "New Years" to this fella! 

Wishin' I could keep this vibe goin' all year thru. 


Well, pallies o' mine...just as I expected...I'm bein' lured back to Dean's COOL COOL al b um of Parisian song..."French Style". 

Yes, my friends...I thinks I'll hang 'round just a little bit longer. 

These drizzly days & this record just seem to pull me in. 

They set the Springtime stage. One compliments the other, I think. 


So, my fellow Dino-holics...who better than our main dude, Dean...to make a cloudy day shine...& how better than with a little "The Last Time I Saw Paris"?! 

This is EXACTLY the serenadin' we need to REALLY keep the vibe of this AWESOME season rollin', my friends! 


Now the only wee, little, tiny, miniscule, problemo...was I couldn't choose which Dino-vid to play! 

Yes, pals...I was havin' a Dino-dilemma. 


My first choice is ALWAYS a live...from Dean's show...chillin' on his couch, croon. These are my personal faves. 

But, pals...it's a short version. 

Only 'bout a minute. 

Now...I ob vi ous ly want to share as much Dino-croonin' as possible. 

So do I go with the full studio-recorded jam...or with the very suave but short live vid?! 


Well, ladies & gentlemen...I'm SURE youse already knows how I roll. 

Only really one thin' to do. 

OK...let's say it all together..."PLAY BOTH VIDS"!!! Haha!! 

Yup! 

DEF I NATE LY! 

So, my fellow Dino-diggin' Parisians...never mind the clouds! 

Forget the sprinkles & downpours! 

It's SPRING! 


Dino got this! 

Enjoy!!!

I found "April In Paris" on his 1962 Reprise al b um..."French Style". What a perfecto tune for this wonderful time of year! 

This vinyl masterpiece is a GREAT GREAT collection of some of Dean's MOST BEA U TI FUL songs! 

I'm diggin' each & every one of these jams, with Dino's accentin' on the language of love! Haha!!
