There Are Many Memorable Dean Martin Performances, But This One Might Take The Cake


When it comes right down to it, Dean Martin had one of the silkiest smooth voices ever to grace this earth. And because of that he quickly became one of the most popular singers of his generation. But his popularity did not stop there. Decades later, millions still listen to Dean Martin croon over the airwaves.
Below we are sharing one of the best Dean Martin moments. It is a 1965 sing-along classic that was originally written and performed by Roger Miller. The song, which is a type of hobo song, speaks about life on the move and might be one of your favorite performances ever done by Dean Martin. The song is called “King of the Road” and has been covered by many talented performers, but without a doubt, Dino’s performance here takes the cake.
Scroll down to watch Dean Martin sing this classic song and allow it to transport you back to the Good Old Days once again…
Dean Martin delivered this chipper and delightful rendition of the classic song during the memorial concert called “The Frank Sinatra Spectacular” that happened just months before Martin would land his own television show.
Although The Rat Pack was together for the event, Dean Martin shined like a lone star and caught the attention of all the executives and fans in the audience. It was hard to miss him among the crowd.
Even though he gets teased mercilessly throughout the song, especially near the end of the track, Martin still shines like gold.

Check out this man, who was always a class act, sing the famous road song that inspired millions to live a simpler life.

The video featured below was filmed in St. Louis on closed circuit television, which back in 1965 was an experiment.

Tens of thousands of fans have tuned in to watch this decades-old performance that still holds true to the masses of the world today.
Viewers contributed their comments underneath the YouTube video, which included the following:
“I’ve not seen the videotape version before. Much much better than the version released on the Ultimate Rat Pack Collection.”
“It’s nice to see the smoother, videotape version of this clip. Much better than the kinescope. Makes me wonder why it wasn’t included in the DVD”
According to, “Sinatra said, ‘Be there,’ and they were there—Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Trini Lopez, Kaye Stevens, and an amalgamation of two different bands, including members of the Count Basie Orchestra, conducted by a lean cat named Quincy Jones.”
Vanity Fair continues: “Dean Martin with his sleepy power, like a leopard in a smoking jacket, finishing his few songs with the words ‘I’d like to do some more for ya, but I’m lucky I remembered these.’”
The event was a huge success and attracted viewers from all over the country, who watched it on their television sets as well in the Las Vegas venue. Many tuned in for Frank Sinatra, but stayed for Dean Martin’s velvety voice, including the rendition of “King of the Road” as shown below.

What do you make of this special Dean Martin performance?
