Dean Martin died in 1995, but he’s still one of America’s most beloved entertainers. The Italian-American actor, singer and comedian made his big break when he formed a comedy-music duo with Jerry Lewis in 1946.
By the ‘50s, he had launched a successful solo career, appearing in films and taking his place in the legendary Rat Pack alongside Frank Sinatra, Joey Bishop, Peter Lawford, and Sammy Davis Jr.
Martin’s crooning vocals also scored him several hit singles over the years, including “That’s Amore,” “Mambo Italiano” and “Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime.”
In honor of what would have been Martin’s 100th birthday on June 7, we’ve rounded up just a few of Martin’s most memorable songs:
“Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime”
“La Vie En Rose”
“Think About Me”
