April 16, 1964…At United Recording Studios in Hollywood, Dean Martin recorded "Everybody Loves Somebody," a song co-written in 1947 by his pianist/accompanist Ken Lane. Martin's recording went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, sold more than a million copies, and became the theme song of his NBC-TV variety series (1965-1974). The words "Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime" are inscribed on Dean Martin's grave marker.
The record jacket pictured is oh-so-familiar to me. I have that album, of course.
That particular album is the second Dino album that I purchased. The first? The Door Is Still Open to My Heart. I fell in love with "We'll Sing in the Sunshine" the first time that I heard out Dino croon that tune.
Can it really be the 50th anniversary of the recording of "Everybody Loves Somebody"? Wow! Makes me feel old.
Hey pallie, likes thanks for sharin' some of your great Dino-memories. I'm gonna have to find "We'll Sing In The Sunshine" hopefully on one of my Dino-cds. Thanks Miss AOW...and keeps lovin' our most beloved Dino!
