Hey pallies, likes today ilovedinomartin returns to a rockin' blog that truly gets our swingin' Dino. From the blog "Rock NYC Live and Recorded," Miss Helen Bach returns with yet 'nother post brimmin' full with Dino-admiration. This time 'round Helen turns her attention to an oldie but goodie tune, "“Who’s Your Little Who-zis!”, from way back in 1931. She shares a wonderful clip of our Dino and his partner Jerry Lewis singin' a "comedic fun" version from "The Stooge."
In speakin' of this little tune, Helen states that it is "adorable really, in the most innocent of ways." And, she contrasts it to the crude and vulger lyrics that populate so much of today's so-called music. It is so so refreshin' to see Bach boldly and passionately takin' this timely subject and usin' our most beloved Dino's music as a standard of "romantic innocence."
One can only hope that the rockers who read "Rock NYC Live and Recorded," will begin to take Miss Helen's reflections to heart and perhaps, just perhaps begin turnin' on the to glorious sounds of our glorious Dino!
ilovedinomartin is thrilled to be able to share this outstandin' reflection with you and thanks Miss Helen Bach ever so much for takin' such a firm stand for the Dino-truth. To view this in it's original format, likes just clicks on the tag of this Dino-message. Dino-devotedly, DMP

There was an interesting time in history when everyone who had a record deal would do a version of the same song. Really its hard to compare to any of the the 'Rat Packers' and this is certainly no exception
"Who's Your Little Who-zis!" , is a song from 1931 by Ben Bernie, Al Goehring, and (lyrics, the incomparable) Walter Hirsch, a good ol 78rpm spin of swoony love. An innocent melodic horn fused romp into romance and bass thump. Its adorable really, in the most innocent of ways. When is the last time someone has "melt your heart like butter'? NEVER… Why? cuz the modern world sucks.
We want to 'sex you up', we want to 'fuck you like an animal', we want 'sexual healing', we like 'big butts'… we have completely lost our couth. Do you think that in Ithis song when Dino croons 'whose your turtle dove' that's 1935 speak for, "nice ass lets get busy"? NO, its romantic innocence. And unless you're under 10, it's no longer in your world. the innocence of our world disappears the moment the tooth fairy stops making pillow visits and that pissses me off.
So everyone shut up, sit down. listen to this and quit being a bunch of filthy pigs. THIS is what romance and love and all that jazz is, it's not a hard on and a bottle of Petron. To spare you from the seriousness I have used the Martin/Lewis version so there is some comedic fun. But the lyrics are there so listen up.
