Image result for gary trust billboard
Hey pallies, likes there is nothin' like a controversy bein' spread all over the world  wide web to bring amazin'ly awesome attention to an entertainer's career, even if said entertainer has been gone from the planet for almost 23 years.  And, likes pallies that entertainer of which we speaketh is likes, of course,  our one, our only Dino!  Ever since the news of a radio station in Ohio decidin' to ban the seasonal song, "Baby, It's Cold Outside," the ol 'net has been a beautiful buzz with mucho of the discussion fantastically focusin' in our Dino's veritable version of the wintery croon.  (See ilovedinomartin's original post on December 5 HERE.)

 Dean Martin's 'Baby, It's Cold Outside' Hits Top 10 On Digital Song Sales Chart

12/18/2018 by Gary Trust



Dean Martin on the set of 'The Dean Martin Show' in 1967 in Los Angeles.

Martin's version of the suddenly much-buzzed-about 1944 song surges by 70 percent in sales.
"Baby, It's Cold Outside" has come under fire of late, with some radio stations banning the holiday standard in light of the #MeToo movement and others defending and continuing to play it. Frank Loesser wrote the song in 1944, and its storyline of a male suitor who attempts to dissuade his object of affection from leaving for the chilly outdoors is being newly dissected.

Despite the controversy, or perhaps in part because of attention generated by it, a version of the song hits the top 10 of Billboard's Digital Song Sales chart for the first time. Dean Martin's take, recorded in 1959, is the chart's Greatest Gainer, soaring from No. 31 to No. 10 on the Dec. 22-dated list, up 70 percent to 11,000 downloads sold in the week ending Dec. 13, according to Nielsen Music. A week earlier, it returned to the chart with a 257 percent blast to 7,000 sold.


'Baby, It's Cold Outside' Heats Up On Charts After Lyrics Controversy
For a second consecutive week, Martin's cover is the second-best-selling holiday song, below Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" (14,000, down 6 percent).



On the Holiday 100 chart, which ranks the top holiday songs of all eras via a blend of streaming, airplay and sales data, Martin's "Cold" jumps 31-17. Until a week ago, it had never ranked in the top 40 dating to the chart's 2011 inception. (Carey's "Christmas" continues to rule the Holiday 100 and becomes the highest-charting yuletide hit in 60 years on the Billboard Hot 100.)

Martin's interpretation of "Cold" also surges by 35 percent to 11.1 million U.S. streams in the tracking week. Plus, it gains by 25 percent to 1.4 million in airplay audience (while his 2006 duet version with Martina McBride climbs by 26 percent to 3.2 million).

Ken Foote’s Holiday Songs: Dean Martin & Let It Snow

By Ken Foote

(CBS 11) – Dean Martin was one of the most popular and long-running singers, actors, and comedians in America. His career spanned nearly 50 years and he became one of the most recognizable of his day.

Born Dino Paul Crocetti on June 7, 1917 and passed away (ironically enough) on December 25, 1995 at age 78, Martin was a stand-up comic, singer, movie actor, and TV host. He was known by many for his collaboration with Jerry Lewis as one of the most popular comedy duos ever. He had a lifelong relationship with NBC Television with The Dean Martin Show (1965-1974), Dean Martin Presents (1968-1973), and the Dean Martin Summer Show (1968-1971).

He appeared in such motion pictures as Rio Bravo, Ada, and Ocean’s 11. He had two #1 hits on Billboard: “Memories Are Made Of This” in 1955 and “Everybody Loves Somebody” in 1964. His son Dino was part of a 1960’s rock group called “Dino, Desi and Billy” who had a couple of hits in 1965, the most famous one being “I’m A Fool” (Dino passed away on March 21, 1987 when his Air National Guard jet crashed).

“Let It Snow” was written in 1945, with lyrics by Sammy Cahn and music by Jule Styne. This song has been performed by artists such as Vaughn Monroe, Woody Herman, Connee Boswell, Carly Simon, and Rod Stewart. Released on a 1966 Christmas album on the Reprise label and running 1:57, the lyrics go like this:

The weather outside is frightful
But that fire is, mmm, delightful
Since we’ve no place to go
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

It doesn’t show signs of stoppin’
And I’ve brought lots of corn for poppin’
The lights are way down low
So let it snow, let it snow, let it snow (let it snow)

When we finally say goodnight
How I’ll hate goin’ out in the storm
But if you’ll only hold me tight
All the way home I’ll be warm

The fire is slowly dyin’
And, my dear, we’re still goodbyin’
As long as you love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Definitely a holiday staple! Enjoy!!

On This Day In Dino-history: December 15, 1974




 Hey pallies, it's 'nother deeply delightful day in Dino-history....December 15 in the year of our Dino 1974. It was on this day in Dino-history that our most beloved Dino appeared on the annual Bob Hope Christmas Special croonin' "Marshmallow World"   Likes a few of years 'go durin' our Dino-wintery time together, as the days grew  closer and closer to the twentieth anniversary of our Dino's departure from our presence on December 25, 1995, we fondly felt just an ubber urgent need to share with all youse fellow Dino-holics our simple and yet,  hopefully special way of solemnly  showin' our absolute awesome affectionate  appreciation for our King of Cool.

Likes for  a ton of time we've  had the deepest of deep  desire in  our devoted Dino-hearts to create a series of gifs sharin' an entire Dino-croon made up of a plentiful plethora of marvelous moments.  Our desire in doin' so was to absolutely awesomely  accent each and every nuance of our great great man's beautifully bountiful body movements.   From every fascinatin' facial expression includin' our Dino's extremely expressive eyes (likes who can ever resist his glorious glance?!?!?!?!?!)....to the wonderful  ways he gracefully gestures with his ever present Kent cigarette in hand, we knew a series of gifs would  capture him in the coolest of cool ways possible.

And pallies, like it was a beau-ti-ful breeze of a decision on which Dino-croonin' vid that woulda be the swank subject of extra energetic effort for our most beloved  Dino.   Likes what coulda be better then the  December 15, 1974 vid ver-si-on of our King of Cool croonin' "Marshmallow World" on a Bob Hope Christmas special? Likes none to our Dino-notion!  Here we find our most beloved Dino outfitted in  his extremely elegant tux with omni-present  Kent smoke in hand, sittin' on his green velvet throne, surrounded by all the seasonal trimmin's includin' delightfully  decorated Christmas tree inside and  swank snowman on the outside.

In 1974, at age 57,  we believe our Dino was at the absolutely awesome zenith of his coolest of cool career.  Dino was cooler, hipper, and randier then ever.  Always wantin' to put the accent on the youthful action of the day, Dino had surrounded himself with youthful ladies and gents....currently married to twenty something Miss Cathy Hawn, who he met while clubbin' at the coolest of cool Candy Store Discotheque.  When he wasn't wearin' the tux, he was often found sportin' the moddest of mod fashions....on the golf course, in segments of his variety show, and as swank swinger extraordinare, makin' the nightlife scene wherever the action was.

We think our Dino croonin' 'bout marshmallows is where it is at dudes, and it is our proud privilege to  once 'gain share, on this 14th day of Dino-winter month, on this 43rd anniversary of our Dino's awesome appearance with Bob Hope croonin' his swankest of swank seasonal selection "It's A Marshmallow World of Dino-winter month,  we shares with all youse Dino-philes the groovy great gifs of our one and only Dino swingin' at his swingin' best!   This year we were perfectly pleased to find a pad, "Giphy" to be exact, where gifs can now be coolly created up to 15 secs in length makin' for lovin'ly longer swank sections of this profoundly perfect presentation of this darin'ly delightful Dino-wintery croon.  And, likes, of course, we couldn't resist sharin' the original youtube vid of "It's A Marshmallow World" from that Bob Hope seasonal special.

Likes, once 'gain,  we hugely  hopes it brings you as much pure potent pleasure as it has brought us in creatin' it!   Likes, be a love, and sends us some patter 'bout what youse think!  btw, pallies, this is just the first of a number of Dino-traditional posts comin' your way in the Dino-days ahead and continue our coolest of cool celebration of Dino-wintertime and reverently reverent remembrance of our Dino's departure from our presence on December 25, 1995.

We remain,

Yours In Dino,

Description

These Rat Pack Stone Coasters are an instant classic, and great addition to any home bar. Sit back, pour a double, and relax. Perfect for a man cave, these are made with the same process as my original art coasters. I first paired each crooner's 'fondness of drinking' quotes with an image, then hand transferred each onto a beautiful piece of white Botticino marble, encapsulating the texture of the stone into the design. It is then thoroughly coated to protect the image, finely sanded, then top coated again for durability with a heat-resistant top coat - to ensure that both iced, and hot beverages alike are acceptable without sticking. It is also fully backed with felt from edge to edge. Care and attention to detail has been taken to make sure that these are high quality, beautiful, and long lasting. I use quality materials, for a quality finished product. Due to their handmade nature, no two are exactly alike, and small imperfections are expected, and add to the natural and handmade nature of the product. Just wipe clean with a damp cloth, as they are not dishwasher safe due to the felt backing.


Each stone coaster measures approximately 4" square, and is 1/2" thick, and has a satin top coat.
This listing is for a single marble coaster, featuring the King of Cool, Dean Martin. "You're not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on".

CHEERS!

Dean Martin Scores First Billboard Hot 100 Entry in Nearly 50 Years With 'Let It Snow'


12/11/2018 by Xander Zellner


Dean Martin on the set of 'The Dean Martin Show' in 1967 in Los Angeles. 

Late legend Dean Martin returns to the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated Dec. 15) after almost half a century, as his version of the seasonal standard "Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow," debuts at No. 41. He earns his first entry in 49 years, three months and 16 days.

He had last appeared on the Hot 100 dated Aug. 30, 1969, with "I Take a Lot of Pride in What I Am," which peaked at No. 75 in its last week.

Still, Martin doesn't break the record for the longest gap between Hot 100 entries. That distinction belongs to late jazz star Louis Prima, who, as featured on Kids See Ghosts' "4th Dimension," went 57 years, four months and 10 days between his previous Hot 100 hit, "Wonderland by Night," in February 1961 and his return earlier this year on "Dimension," on June 23.

(Per rules put in place earlier this decade, older songs, like Martin's "Snow," are eligible to chart on the Hot 100 if gaining in multiple metrics and ranking in the top 50.)

On This Day In Dino-history: December 12, 1975





v
Hey pallies, likes we're likes just 'bout at the half-way mark to our reverent remembrance of Dino-departure Day, December 25, 1995 and this Dino-day, December 12 is not only the anniversary of the birthday of our Dino's bestest of best pallie, Mr. Frank Sinatra, but also 'nother swankly significant day in all of Dino-history.

Likes it was on December 12, in the year of our Dino 1975, that our most beloved Dino appeared on "The Tonight Show" with host Johnny Carson in what were probably his more memorable moments appearin' on late night television.  Below is the youtube vid of the intriguin' interview that Mr. Carson coolly conducted with our King of Cool.  This particular vid is one of several shared on youtube and as of scribin' this, this vid has had OVER  3 MILLION 816 THOUSAND HITS!

What makes this swank segment of our Dino patterin' with Mr. Carson and Mr. Bob Hope so incredibly intriguin'  is that it appears that our main man had been enjoyin' liberal liquid libations before comin' on the show....indeed our  Dino appears to actually be stoned and we get to experience  Drunky Dino.  As Dino-philes all know, our Dino most often played drunk in his 'Vegas baby 'Vegas night club act 'n on the Dino-show, usually havin' apple juice in his glass, just makin' like he's drunk.  But, likes in this appearance by our Dino, our main man has been partyin' before he would later attend Mr. Sinatra's birthday party.   So, sit back and enjoys our swingin' Dino under the influence....with no holds barred!

We remain,

Yours in Dino,

Dino Martin Peters

It's beginning to look a lot like Nerdmas: What to get the geek who has everything

Kylie Klein-Nixon

From December 1, I am on a strictly Christmas film, Dean Martin seasonal hits and Christmas mince pie diet. It's probably a desperate bid to recapture the wriggling excitement of childhood Christmases past, but I actually quite like Christmas music, especially that one song that sounds like it's from a Tim Burton movie - Carol of the Bells.  I have two Christmas Trees... one of them plays Deck The Halls. It matches our wee Santa who dances to Jingle Bells.

VOTE: Do You Find The Lyrics To ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ Offensive?

By Brian Mazique

Dean Martin

Dean Martin's Baby It's Cold Outside under fire
The legendary Dean Martin made the holiday song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” a classic, but now the lyrics of the song have become the subject of controversy. In fact, an Ohio radio station pulled it from its programming when a listener voiced their displeasure.
The song was originally written in 1944 by Frank Loesser, but it won an Oscar for Best Original Song in 1949 in “Neptune’s Daughter.” Martin’s daughter Deana Martin still sings the song when she performs and doesn’t plan to stop.
Per Fox News, here’s how you described the lyrics:
It’s been recorded by dozens of the world’s top recording artists for over 60 years, including my dad Dean Martin… This song is included in his very successful 1959 ‘Winter Romance’ album and I’m very proud that it has become an evergreen favorite that is played every holiday season. I personally love performing ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ and will continue to do so.Merry Christmas!
If you’re unaware of the controversy, you might be thinking, “what’s the big deal?” Some of the lyrics are being taken as offensive because they are sparking of images or suggestions of rape. Here’s what the WDOK’s Desiray had to say about the lyrics:
“People might say, ‘Oh, enough with that #MeToo,’ but if you really put that aside and listen to the lyrics, it’s not something I would want my daughter to be in that kind of situation,” she continued, explaining that the “tune might be catchy, but let’s maybe not promote that sort of an idea.”
Still confused? Here’s a look at the lyrics to the song with some of the more controversial sections bolded:
I really can’t stay (Baby it’s cold outside)
I gotta go away (Baby it’s cold outside)
This evening has been (Been hoping that you’d dropped in)
So very nice (I’ll hold your hands they’re just like ice)
My mother will start to worry (Beautiful what’s your hurry?)
My father will be pacing the floor (Listen to the fireplace roar)
So really I’d better scurry (Beautiful please don’t hurry)
Well maybe just a half a drink more (I’ll put some records on while I pour)
The neighbors might think (Baby it’s bad out there)
Say what’s in this drink? (No cabs to be had out there)

I wish I knew how (Your eyes are like starlight now)
To break this spell (I’ll take your hat, your hair looks swell) (Why thank you)
I ought to say no, no, no sir (Mind if move in closer?)
At least I’m gonna say that I tried (What’s the sense of hurtin’ my pride?)
I really can’t stay (Baby don’t hold out)
Baby, it’s cold outside
Ah, you’re very pushy you know?
I like to think of it as opportunistic
I simply must go (Baby it’s cold outside)
The answer is no (But baby it’s cold outside)
The welcome has been (How lucky that you dropped in)
So nice and warm (Look out the window at that storm)
My sister will be suspicious (Gosh your lips look delicious!)
My brother will be there at the door (Waves upon a tropical shore)
My maiden aunt’s mind is vicious (Gosh your lips are delicious!)
Well maybe just a cigarette more (Never such a blizzard before) (And I don’t even smoke)
I’ve got to get home (Baby you’ll freeze out there)
Say lend me a coat? (It’s up to your knees out there!)
You’ve really been grand, (I feel when I touch your hand)
But don’t you see? (How can you do this thing to me?)
There’s bound to be talk tomorrow (think of my life long sorrow!)
At least there will be plenty implied (If you caught pneumonia and died!)
I really can’t stay (Get over that old out)
Baby it’s cold
Baby it’s cold outside
Okay fine, just another drink then
That took a lot of convincing!
After reading the lyrics with context, does it affect your thoughts? Tell me in the poll below, are these lyrics offensive or just playful and harmless?

Do you find the lyrics to "Baby, It's Cold Outside" Offensive?
Yes
No

A Radio Station Banned “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” And It Experienced A Huge Genius Pageview Spike

“In a world where #MeToo has finally given women the voice they deserve, the song has no place.”


Cleveland radio station Star 102 recently removed the Christmas standard, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” from its rotation after many listeners raised concerns about its lyrics. In a blog post published last week, radio host Glenn Anderson said that the song “seems very manipulative and wrong.”
“I didn’t understand why the lyrics were so bad… until I read them,” Anderson wrote. “I do realize that when the song was written in 1944, it was a different time, but now while reading it, it seems very manipulative and wrong. The world we live in is extra sensitive now, and people get easily offended, but in a world where #MeToo has finally given women the voice they deserve, the song has no place.”
While Anderson didn’t mention which version of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” Star 102 banned, the most popular cover on Genius is Dean Martin’s rendition from his 1959 holiday album titled A Winter Romance. Thanks to the approaching holidays, people were searching for the song’s lyrics and it racked up 24,195 total pageviews last month, representing a 456 percent increase in comparison to October
After news spread about Star 102’s decision, pageviews skyrocketed even further. From November 29 to November 30, the song saw a pageview increase of 700 percent. On December 1, pageviews rose another 120 percent for its recent peak of 20,175. It currently sits at No. 21 on the Genius Top Songs chart.
“Baby, It’s Cold Outside” is a duet between a man and woman. On the song, the woman makes it clear that she has to leave because it’s late at night, while the man tries to convince her to stay because “it’s cold outside.”
The song opens with the woman stating that she needs to go home after a nice evening together:
I really can’t stay (But baby it’s cold outside)
I’ve got to away (But baby it’s cold outside)
This evening has been (Been hoping that you’d drop in)
So very nice (I’ll hold your hands, they’re just like ice)
Later in the first verse, it’s implied that the man may have spiked her drink:
Say what’s in this drink (No cabs to be had out there)
I wish I knew how (Your eyes are like starlight now)
To break this spell (I’ll take your hat, your hair looks swell)
I ought to say “No, no, no sir” (Mind if I move in closer?)
At least I’m gonna say that I tried (What’s the sense in hurtin' my pride?)
Broadway songwriter Frank Loesser wrote “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” as a duet to sing with his wife Lynn Garland, according to a biography written by their daughter, Susan Loesser. In 1948, the song was sold to MGM for the romantic comedy, Neptune’s Daughter, and it won the Academy Award for Best Original Song the following year.
Since then, the duet has been covered by dozens of artists including Sammy Davis Jr.Ella FitzgeraldWillie NelsonKelly Clarkson, and Mac Miller, who released his version with Ariana Grande in 2012.
