Danny G's Sunday Serenade with Dino: "Buttercup A Golden Hair"

Well, say there, pals!

What it is!
What it was!
What it might have been!

Man...I thinks this crazy world has finally gots to me!
I've found myself babblin'...on & on...incoherently...all week!

I sit in the back seat & wonder who stole the damn steerin' wheel!

Maybe my brain is gettin' a wee bit toasted, pals! Haha!!
Actually...PICKLED would be more appropriate!

OK...'nough foolishness.
Let's talk a little bit 'bout what WAS & let's get to the Dino-tunes!

Now, pallies...I simply HAD to use this week's COOL COOL Dino-jam for today's Serenade!

It's in recognition of a very sad event...that I thinks 'bout every year...'round this time.

Last Tuesday, August 4th, marks the very unpleasant anniversary of the passin' of a very special lady...a very special girl-pallie of our Dino's.
Marilyn Monroe. 

It's been 58 years since she took her final bow.

Shame, pals.
Was such a fun & talented young soul.

But, mi amici...I believe in celebratin' what WAS...rather than cryin' over what WASN'T.

"Buttercup A Golden Hair" is set to her & our pals flick, that never came to be..."Something's Got to Give".
It featured Dino alongside a very lovely & naked Marilyn!

Looks like it would have been a FUN FUN Dino-flick for sure!

Such a shame it just wasn't meant to be, my friends.
They both looked so good in this vid & youse could see the chemistry & friendship they shared.

Bittersweet to watch, pallies.
BUT...let's be thankful for what's we got's, pals!
A Great Great tune & vid that's PERFECTO for a Great Great Summer night!

R.I.P MM. & DM...
Thanks for the awesome memories.

Great post, Danny G! I'm not sure that I've heard this one before.

From what I've read, our Dino was so kind to Marilyn in her final days. He saw that she was unraveling. A real shame! She was so young to throw in the towel.

What a wonderful song and tribute to Marilyn DannyG, it really is hard to believe it has been fifty eight years since her unfortunate death. From everything I have read and seen our very own Dean Martin was such a close friend of Marilyn's. I know they were staring together in Something's Got to Give but sadly it would never be finished.

Summer is in full swing as we head to mid August, were does the time fly too. lol. Anyways a wonderful selection this week my friend. Have a great week.
