Danny G's Sunday Serenade with Dino: "Side By Side"

Welcome back pals o' mine! This time round' I'm kinda combinin' a couple different signature "Serenade" spins. This one's celebratin' this famous week in Dino-history that was featured a few days ago on this very blog! The beginin' & end of Martin & Lewis.

I decided to do a sorta "Duetin' with Dino" meets a "Cool Then, Cool Now" tune that I never really paid much attention to before. The name of this Cool little Duet is "Side by Side".

I believe its from the Colgate Comedy Hour. Circa 1955. Nearin' the end of this historical team's run, it's a little bitter-sweet to see these two, knowin' the soon to be outcome. But still, it's a wonderful song and as always, it's great to see Dean in his prime and ready to REALLY take the world by storm with, in this Dino-holic's humble opinion, a solo career that has never been matched!

Let's sit back, reminisce bout' "the good ol' days", and enjoy this classic vid!

"Side By Side"

Oh we aint got a barrel of money,
Maybe we're ragged and funny.
But we'll travel along
Singin' a song.
Side by side.

I don't know what's comin' tomorrow
Maybe it's trouble and sorrow
But we'll travel the road
Sharin' the load
Side by side.

Thru all kinds of weather,
What if the sky should fall
Just as long as we're together
It dosen't matter at all.

When they've all had their quarrels and parted
We'll be the same as we started.
Just travelin' along
Singin our song
Side by side.

Oh, the road gets a little bit bumpy
And our nerves get a little bit jumpy
We needn't complain
But we remain
Side by side.

There are times when his smile ain't so sunny
Times when his fun isn't funny.
So we fuss and we pout
But still we go out
Side by side.

Life can be demandin'
Life isn't always play.
We reached an understandin'
It's gotta be his way.

There are folks who parted us neatly
But we have fooled them completely.
Had us both on a shelf
Look for yourself,
Side by side.

Great video!

Of course, it's so ironic as the duo split up.
