Finally, for the Great American Songbook Series: Dean Martin
Dino Paul Crocetti (1917 – 1995) - nicknamed the "King of Cool". He was one of the members of the "Rat Pack" and a major star on concert stage, recordings, movies and television.
As a singer Martin could not read music (like Frank Sinatra!), but recorded about 100 albums with 600 songs.
His "Everybody Loves Somebody", beated The Beatles' "A Hard Day's Night" at of the No. 1 spot in the US (1964).
I hope you all liked this little excursion in musical history. That's it for The Great Amercian Songbook for now.
