Danny G's Sunday Serenade with Dino: The Things We Did Last Summer"

 Welcome back, pals o' Dean! Welcome, one & all...guys & gals...dames & dudes! 

How's my Dino-peeps doin' this week? Hopefully GREAT! 

Thins' 'round here ain't too bad. Weathers been decent. Days have been little chilly this week...but sunny. Little snowy. But, hey pallies, guess what? No problemo! 

'Cause wee bit, by wee bit, the days is gettin' longer & longer! Sun is risin' earlier & earlier! We is slowly creepin' towards warmer days, my friends! 

I know...I'm jumpin' the gun here, pals. But...we is 1/3 the ways through Winter...& I'm already gettin' Spring fever!! Haha!! Youse too? I bet! 

So,'s what I'm thinkin'. A "chilled-out"..."cooly-mellow" Dino-jam...that will bring those comfy, warmer days to mind, for this week's Serenade. 

Somethin' relaxin' help us through our Winter pilgrimage. 

I is also wantin' to get us ready for an up & comin' month of PURE PURE Dino-passion! Next week we will be on the cusp of "Dino-Amore Month"! 

So, today I am reachin' for a tune that will transition Dino's wintery coolness into a "Pre-Amore" vibe! Are youse feelin' me, pallies?! Cool! 

We need somethin' to kick back to. Maybe with a friend...maybe solo...with a glass of vino. Either way, pallies...I'm feelin' some "The Things We Did Last Summer", today. 

Gonna reach for Dean's "A Winter Romance" al b last time, mi amici. Youse with me?! Good! Nothin' better to do on these chilly kinda days...than hang with Dino...& just drift away. 

Take my advice with this one, ol' friends o' mine! Nothins' more peaceful. 

OK, pallies. We'll set our sights on warmer days & a month-long journey through Dean's MOST romantico jams! 

Can't wait!!!

Danny G's Sunday Serenade with Dino: "I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm"

 Well, hey there, ol' pals o' mine! 

How's thins' in your part of the world? Hopefully all is well & the new year is goin' smooth. 

So, check it out...youse know that ol’sayin', "Ask & youse shall receive."? Well, mi seems our request for a wee bit o' "June in January", has been heard loud & clear! 

This past Friday...we, here in good ol' Massachusetts...actually hit 60!  And, get this...we is set to see 'nother 50 degree warm up, this here comin' week! Crazy weather for January, pals! Did Dino actually see last week's Sunday's Serenade?! Does he ACTUALLY stop by our humble little blog?!?! Haha!! 

Sure seems that way! Hey, they say's..."Youse never know". 

Anyways, my's got me thinkin'. No matter what the weather is outside...we can ALWAYS be nice & comfy cozy...when Dino is swoonin' us & croonin' us! It's a magical thin', really. How Dean's jams can take us away. Bring us to a different place. A different time...with just a simple song.  A simple tune on a simple Winter day! 

But...pals...the magic isn't the fact that it's a warm January day. Nope. The MAGIC is the ability to be in & among cold cold or way too hot temperatures, and yet maintain a certain level of HOT & FIERY coolness!  

Am I losin' youse yet? Am I soundin' like I is probably halfway to losin' my mind??!! Haha!! No...I'm alright, pallies. 

It IS possible to be COLD...& HOT...& COOL...ALL at the same time! Yes, It's true! Dino has achieved the unimaginable! He's BROKEN & COMPLETELY OBLIVERATED all laws of Science!!!  

Quick! Call me a doctor! I feel faint! Haha!! Just kiddin'! 

Anyways, pals...Today's Serenade, "I Got My Love to Keep Me Warm", will PROVE my latest theory in Dino-ology! 

If somethin' gets youse SO SO fired up...even though it may be frigidly freezin' outside...youse just cants help but feel hot & bothered…with a Dino-jam flowin' in the air! Haha!!

Capeesh? OK, good. 

Now, my completely cool is that? Haha!! 

I rest my case.

Danny G's Sunday Serenade with Dino: "June In January"

 What's shakin', pals. Welcome back!'s this frosty season treatin' youse? 

Is it cold 'nough for you "chilly-weather-lovin" Dino-holics, yet?! Haha!! Oh well, mi's January...get's used to it for a bit. 

Actually...hasn't been too bad, though. Some days are cold...some days are actually sunny & nice! Crazy Winter so far! Gots me comin' & goin'! Haha!! 

Wish Ol' Mother Nature would just make up her mind & get us through these ice covered days! All this weather changin' has givin' your pal, Danny G., a cold, to boot! Ugh. Oh well, mi amici. 'Tis the season.

OK pals...with WARM thoughts in mind...let's gets to today's Serenade! 

I...once 'gain...went back to Dean's "Winter Romance" al b um,  for this one! Well...why wouldn't I?!!! It's wintery magic set to vinyl, mi amici! Haha!! 

Let's imagine we is sittin' on some warm tropic sands, my friends. Dino's warm warm vocals siftin' through the Summer breezes blowin' & the last thin' on our minds is icy days & snowin'! Now THAT'S a nice thought, pallies! 

I thinks youse might have figured out...exactly where I'm goin' with this one, my friends. A little "June In January" is what we ALL can use right 'bout now! DEF I NATE LY!!! 

Well, mi's time for me to scram. Got's places to go...& peeps to meet. Actually...I just wanna get to this swoonin' croon of a wintery Dino-tune! Haha!
