Without a dream in my heart without a love of my own
Blue moon, you knew just what I was there for
You heard me sayin' a prayer for someone I really could care for

And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms could ever hold
I heard somebody whisper please adore me
When I looked to the moon it turned to gold

Blue moon, now I'm no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart without a love of my own

And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will ever hold
I heard somebody whisper please adore me
And when I looked the moon had turned to gold

Blue moon, now I'm no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart without a love of my own
Without a love of my own without a love of my own

Biography of Dean Martin | Jazz artist

American actor and crooner

Dean Martin, name Dino Paul Crocetti scene, is an American actor and crooner of Italian origin, born June 7, 1917 in Steubenville (Ohio) and died December 25, 1995 in Beverly Hills (California).
During his youth, Dino Paul Crocetti had various odd jobs, then under the name of Dean Martin, he began working in a New York club where he enjoyed his first success. In the late 1940s he met Jerry Lewis performs on stage with other comic. When they leave Lewis, Dean Martin decided to replace them. The two men form the comedy duo Martin and Lewis, who became the most famous of the United States. They begin a film career with a first film, My Friend Irma. In the process, follow My Friend Irma Goes West and At War with the Army (At War with the Army)) '.
Balanced pairs - Dean Martin represents gentleness and righteousness, while Lewis is silly slapstick - they linked together the set of thirteen films, but fatigue helping, decide to separate the peak of their glory in 1956.
Dean Martin then heads to the music and television. It turns out as an actor in drama The Young Lions with Montgomery Clift and Marlon Brando, and alongside John Wayne in Rio Bravo, made several tubes, including Volare and That's Amore, and became the figurehead of the " cool music ", including  Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. and Shirley MacLaine, in a group called the Rat Pack. The goodwill lasted several years and the group is crumbling. Dean Martin restarts with musical hits like Everybody Loves Somebody that removes Hit Parade Beatles in 1964, In the Chapel in the Moonlight and Gentle On My Minden 1968 and gets to cinema successes including Kiss Me, Stupid, The Four Sons of Katie Elder, Matt Helm series, James Bond spoof, Five cards fell, Bandolero!, Airport. After the accidental death of his son Dean Paul Martin (who played in the series Misfits Courteney Cox) in 1987, he sinks struck by grief and solitude. Sinatra and Sammy Davis trying to give it a taste for life by organizing a joint tour across the United States, Together Again Tour, an old project dating from 1974 but, undermined by grief, he abandoned after only a few concerts. His stage appearances are so extremely rare, except reunion with his former accomplice Jerry Lewis for his seventy-second birthday. Was diagnosed with cancer in 1991; he died of emphysema on Christmas Day 1995. On his tomb is inscribed: "Dean Martin - Everybody Loves Somebody".
Although born in the United States, parents Dino Paul Crocetti in, aka Dean Martin, did not speak English before their teens. A native of Abruzzo, Dean Martin never stopped singing in Italy songs like In Napoli, That's amore. He even sings in Italian in his recovery Domenico Modugno Volare; and in Mambo Italiano or Return to Me. Dean Martin claimed he hated that The Godfather, he said, only served to convey a false representation of Italian Americans. It will nevertheless revealed that Dean Martin and his friend Frank Sinatra (of Sicilian origin singer) had very close ties with the Italian-American Mafia. Their mutual friend was none other than Sam Giancana bosses. One day, a friend of Dean Martin found in his kitchen with a revolver belonging to the latter. It is said that Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra were the official singers mafia bosses of Cosa Nostra.
It was sometimes said that Dean Martin was drunk all the time. This is akin to a legend, Martin himself has confirmed, since he anima for nine years a weekly show, the Dean Martin Show, where he replaced by bourbon apple juice, that kind of show required also a lot of work. At each show, where his friend and pianist Ken Lane, author of Everybody Loves Somebody, accompanied him, a surprise guest hiding behind a door and Dean Martin almost never knew who it was. He was showing an amazing ability to improvise. Cigarette in hand, he warmly welcomed the surprise guest and exchanged pleasantries with him.   The show always ended on a few notes of Everybody Loves Somebody Dean after having thanked all its guests, and introduced listeners to NBC, the chain producer of the show, "Please take care of yourself." After removing his show in 1974, Dean Martin hosted for years the Dean Martin Celebrity Roast, which, despite the eloquence of Martin, very comfortable in his capacity as master of ceremonies, has not reached the Fame Dean Martin Show, despite the presence of prestigious guests.

Biographie de Dean Martin | artiste jazz

acteur et crooner américain

Dean Martin, nom de scène de Dino Paul Crocetti, est un acteur et crooner américain d’origine italienne, né le 7 juin 1917 à Steubenville (Ohio) et mort le 25 décembre 1995 à Beverly Hills (Californie).

Durant sa jeunesse, Dino Paul Crocetti eut différents petits boulots, puis, sous le nom de Dean Martin, il commença à travailler dans un club de New York où il connut ses premiers succès. À la fin des années 1940, il fait la connaissance de Jerry Lewis qui se produit sur scène avec d’autres comiques. Quand ceux-ci quittent Lewis, Dean Martin décide de les remplacer. Les deux hommes forment le duo comique Martin and Lewis qui devient le plus célèbre des États-Unis. Ils commencent une carrière au cinéma, avec un premier film, My Friend Irma. Dans la foulée, suivent My Friend Irma Goes West puis Le Soldat récalcitrant (At War with the Army))’.

Binôme équilibré — Dean Martin représente la douceur et la droiture, alors que Lewis est l’idiot burlesque —, ils enchaînent le tournage de treize films, mais, la lassitude aidant, décident de se séparer au sommet de leur gloire en 1956.

Dean Martin se dirige alors vers la musique et la télévision. Il se révèle en tant qu’acteur dramatique dans Le Bal des maudits avec Montgomery Clift et Marlon Brando, puis au côté de John Wayne dans Rio Bravo, fait plusieurs tubes, dont Volare et That’s Amore, et devient la figure de proue de la « cool music », avec notamment Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr. et Shirley MacLaine, au sein d’un groupe baptisé le Rat Pack. La bonne entente dure quelques années puis le groupe s’effrite. Dean Martin redémarre avec des succès musicaux, comme Everybody Loves Somebody qui déloge les Beatles du Hit Parade en 1964, In the Chapel in the Moonlight ou Gentle On My Minden 1968, et obtient au cinéma de belles réussites dont Embrasse-moi, idiot, Les Quatre Fils de Katie Elder, la série des Matt Helm, parodie de James Bond, Cinq cartes à abattre, Bandolero !, Airport. Après la mort accidentelle de son fils, Dean Paul Martin (qui joua dans la série Superminds avec Courteney Cox) en 1987, il sombre frappé par la peine et la solitude. Sinatra et Sammy Davis tentent de lui redonner goût à la vie en organisant une tournée commune à travers les États-Unis, le Together Again Tour, un vieux projet datant de 1974, mais, miné par le chagrin, il abandonne après seulement quelques concerts. Ses apparitions sur scène se font alors extrêmement rares, hormis les retrouvailles avec son ancien complice Jerry Lewis, pour son soixante-douzième anniversaire. On lui diagnostique un cancer en 1991 ; il meurt d’emphysème le jour de Noël 1995. Sur sa tombe est inscrit : « Dean Martin – Everybody Loves Somebody ».

Bien que nés aux États-Unis, les parents de Dino Paul Crocetti, alias Dean Martin, n’ont pas parlé anglais avant leur adolescence. Originaire des Abruzzes, Dean Martin n’a jamais cessé de chanter l’Italie dans ses chansons comme In Napoli, That’s amore. Il chante même en italien dans sa reprise Volare de Domenico Modugno ; ainsi que dans Mambo Italiano ou encore Return to Me. Dean Martin affirma avoir détesté Le Parrain qui, selon lui, ne servait qu’à véhiculer une représentation erronée des Italo-Américains. Il sera pourtant révélé que Dean Martin et son ami Frank Sinatra (chanteur d’origine sicilienne) possédaient des liens très étroits avec la Mafia italo-américaine. Leur ami commun n’était autre que le boss Sam Giancana. Un jour, une amie de Dean Martin trouva dans sa cuisine un revolver appartenant à ce dernier. On raconte que Dean Martin et Frank Sinatra étaient les chanteurs officiels des patrons mafieux de Cosa Nostra.

Il a été parfois indiqué que Dean Martin était ivre en permanence. Cela s’apparente à une légende, Martin l’ayant lui même confirmé, dans la mesure où il anima pendant neuf ans un show hebdomadaire, le Dean Martin Show, où il remplaçait le bourbon par du jus de pomme, ce genre de show nécessitait en outre beaucoup de travail. Lors de chaque émission, où son ami et pianiste Ken Lane, auteur notamment de Everybody Loves Somebody, l’accompagnait, un invité-surprise se cachait derrière une porte et Dean Martin ne savait quasiment jamais de qui il s’agissait. Il faisait alors preuve d’une étonnante capacité d’improvisation. Cigarette en main, il accueillait avec chaleur l’invité-surprise et échangeait avec lui quelques plaisanteries. Le show se terminait toujours sur quelques notes de Everybody Loves Somebody après que Dean ait remercié l’ensemble de ses invités, et lancé aux auditeurs de la NBC, la chaine productrice du show, « Please take care of yourself ». Après la suppression de son show en 1974, Dean Martin a animé pendant plusieurs années le Dean Martin Celebrity Roast qui, en dépit de la verve de Martin, très à l’aise en sa qualité de maître de cérémonie, n’a pas atteint la renommée du Dean Martin Show, malgré la présence d’invités prestigieux.

Dean Martin – A Homage to My Hero

Dean Martin by all accounts was the greatest all-round showbiz celebrity that ever lived! …a bold statement you might be saying but I will try to back it up and do him justice.
Dean Martin possessed one of the richest and most seductive voices of his generation, as fetching as his leading-man good looks. Of American singers of his day, only Nat King Cole had a more serene and comforting way of articulating notes. Even Sinatra couldn’t achieve that kind of soothing resonance in the lower range. Martin’s phrasing was assured and he seemed never to go off pitch. His stage presence was unsurpassed. No performer was more relaxed and unruffled in front of an audience radiating a kind of charm and offhand charisma that I doubt we would ever see the likes of again. And talk about Cool, well Elvis Presley may have coined the phrase that Dean Martin is the King of Cool but it was rubber-stamped when Playboy called him “the coolest man who ever lived.” His early beginning are stuff that movie script-writers should fall over themselves to put on screen, if they tried they would see why when reaching the top of his game he would step back a little or maybe a little more than just a little. See he would rather have the quiet less traumatic showbiz life, not getting involved in Hollywood Parties, not get into scuffles etc. and never taking himself too seriously, his heart was too big for all that! He was very religious a devout Catholic and devoted family man but one with a huge respect for the millions of his adoring fans. His modesty was tinged with slight low self esteem which did mark him as a complicated celebrity among other stars at the time but also made him incredibly flexible and funny. In fact anyone who had the pleasure to be in Dean Martin’s company would often remark that Dean was the nicest and funniest man they ever met. Martin Scorsese short-sightedly said that to do a film about Dean Martin would be painstakingly difficult as he pulled away in life,  but in fact stepping back as such are truly endearing qualities of the man and why his own fellow Rat-Packers loved him even more so for them. Dean Martin was indeed a true Gent, his personality was to do in part with his Italian heritage and the old ways,  ways that kept the world ‘lontano’, as the mafiosi would say: “distant, safe, and wisely at bay.” Hollywood should not give up on this great story, maybe try Ron Howard, Eastwood or Spielberg, this biopic just gotta be done and I’d further recommend to make it into a 4 parts Mini-Series, I bet it would be viewed by millions;
PART1. Dean’s early beginnings: Where he delivered bootleg liquor, served as a speak-easy croupier and blackjack dealer, worked in a steel mill, a back-door fist-fighter who would get paid only on a knock-out later to wear the gloves and legally fight, briefly ruling the ring as boxing phenomenon, Kid Crochet. Winning his share of bouts earned him little apart from a broken nose, but Dino’s speakeasy experience put him in contact with club owners, resulting in his first singing gigs.
PART2. His meeting with Jerry Lewis and there time together is truly an amazing relationship with all the ups and downs to make it too good a story not to be immortalized. They were together the highest paid movie double act ever in showbiz history. One story has it that Jerry came down with hepatitis right before the duo’s opening night at Ciro’s, Lewis was dumbfounded by the extent of this Dean’s nonchalance where he alone would be faced by the Hollywood elite but to prepare, Martin decided to play a round of golf. “What, you’re going to do a single for the first time in eight years, and you’re not planning a strategy?” Lewis asked. “You’re not going to rehearse?” Martin responded: “Rehearse what? All I need is our music books. I pick a couple of tunes, throw in a couple of ideas that feel right, and have some fun” …There’s a term in Italian for this kind of attitude: menefreghismo, a couldn’t-care-less manner that brings with it overtones of extreme macho coolness and total disregard for all consequences. No entertainer from the 20th century captured this posture with more authenticity than Dean Martin.
PART3. His rise and rise after Lewis, his films, television, Rat-Pack and Las Vegas years are all pretty well documented, but also interestingly was in 1968, Dean signed the biggest contract in show business history. He signed a 3 year contract for $34 million to do three more seasons of his hit series The Dean Martin Show. This would be a very unique contract: since Dean hated rehearsing, he would not have to show up all week to rehearse the show. A stand-in took over Dean’s role at rehearsals, while Dean played golf Monday through Thursday. He’d look over his lines during the week, but mostly he’d golf. Then on Friday, he would show up and tape the show. I would also include in this part that rarest of moments when both Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis were both at the Sands in Las Vegas doing their own separate shows at the same time in 1960 and would gate-crash eachother and comic mayhem would ensue, an absolute treat for the audience who were witness to these two entertainers at the height of their careers.
PART4. His latter life, 1976 onwards, his on-going Las Vegas shows, and it’s this year where Dean would honour Jerry Lewis on his annual Telethon in raising money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) and his dedication year on year and then followed by that legendary 1977 reunion organised by Frank Sinatra, raising more money that year than in history of the show… Dean coming to terms or maybe never really recovering from the death of his Son and his continual friendship with Jerry Lewis after seeing him at a distance attending that funeral. Dean making up with his dearest friend Frank Sinatra after a falling out on a Rat pack revival tour, and settling a family affairs knowing his death was imminent a legacy his children would keep in the minds of all his fans through their own cherished love for their father. Finally his Death on Christmas Day, a day coincidently was the day his dearly beloved mother died also on… Christmas Day 1995 on hearing the news that Dean Martin had died all the Casinos on the Vegas Strip had turned off their lights for one minute to commemorate Dean Martin’s passing.
It is around Christmas where Dean has the perfect voice for festive songs. His version of Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! in 1959 is the best and most popular adaptation of a classic song about snow. It amused Martin that his hit song about snow was written in California by Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne on America’s hottest day of 1945. In 2009 He was honoured and awarded a posthumous Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Note worthy also Dean Martin is one of few actors that have received not just one, but TWO, stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame: one for Motion Pictures at 6519 Hollywood Blvd., and one for Television at 6651 Hollywood Blvd. The man could act, sing, dance, emcee, play the straight man to Jerry Lewis, or tell his own jokes. He could improvise routines with the Rat Pack in front of a casino audience, or host a TV variety show. He could play a credible cowboy or a super spy in a Hollywood film, but he was just as happy acting like a drunk on stage or performing one of his ethnic novelty songs that mixed Italian phrases and American slang. His signature theme song, “Everybody Loves Somebody resonates because when we hear it what they felt was love , love for a star an idol and of mystery who really was ahead of his game and everybody wanted a piece of that, and yes Everybody Loves Dean Martin
My favourite all time classic film of Dean Martin is “Kiss me Stupid”
Classic albums not to miss are;”This Time I’m Swingin'”, “Sleep Warm” and “Dream with Dean” Also check out his live but serious singing of songs such as; “Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?” and “Little Green Apples” And his other classic renditions of “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” and “Story of Life”….showcasing how truly gifted and remarkable his vocal range was.

Norm Macdonald, The Dean Martin Of Stand-Up Comedy

On The Release Of His Latest Netflix Comedy Special, The Comedian Reflects On How Attitude Plays Into Comedic Performance
Monday, May 15, 2017, 5:30am
By Doug Gordon
Macdonald sat down with fellow Canadian Doug Gordon to talk about the fine art of stand-up and Macdonald’s "menefreghismo."  
This transcript has been edited for clarity and length. The full interview can be heardhere.
Doug Gordon: Have you ever read Nick Tosches’ 1992 biography of Dean Martin?
Norm Macdonald: Yes.
Gordon: You have? Excellent. "Dino: Living High in the Dirty Business of Dreams." The reason I ask if you've read it is because — you know this but our listeners won't — one of Tosches’ central arguments in the book is that Dean Martin approached his life and career with this thing called "menefreghismo." It’s an Italian word meaning "I don't give an F."
It seems you have a lot of that same spirit of "menefreghismo" — I would even go so far as to say that you could be described as "the Dean Martin of standup comedy." Or maybe it would be more accurate to say that Dean Martin is "the Norm Macdonald of male vocalists." What do you think? Do you think you've got the "menefreghismo" going on?
Macdonald: Dean Martin’s my hero of all time, he’s like my number one guy.
Gordon: Really?
Macdonald: When I was a little kid I would watch "The Dean Martin Show."
Gordon: The Golddiggers and him coming down the fire pole.
Macdonald: Yeah. Something resonated with me that everything else seemed false, but he seemed real within that false framework. I always remember the sketch he did because he would get giant stars on the show, you know. So it was him and Ruth Buzzi there in a cold water flat. They’re supposed to be a couple. And she's in complete Ruth Buzzi garb with the handbag and everything.
Gordon: Yeah, yeah. The old lady routine that she does, Gladys I think the name was, that she would do with Arte Johnson on "Laugh-In."
Macdonald: Exactly. And Dean Martin is wearing a tuxedo. The same tuxedo that he had for the opening monologue. And he's just standing reading from a card, not even looking at her, and she's acting up an awful storm. There's a knock on the door. It's Sinatra – also wearing a tux. Oh, and they have a drink and a cigarette.
Gordon: Oh, of course.
Macdonald: They walk in and — I'll never forget this — Martin starts laughing, and he walks up and he looks at the cue card; he picks it up and starts reading it and laughing at how funny it is, because he's never seen it before.
It's sort of dereliction of duty in a way, you could say. But to me, it was hysterical as a child. So yeah, Dean Martin was a gigantic influence in my life. It's funny that you stumbled onto that.
