Dino Sings "Things" -- posted by Mom
We can't get this song outta our heads. James even fantasizes about singing it as a duet with Zooey Deschanel!
The kids pulled out Ma's collection of The Dean Martin Variety Hour, and if you can get past the boozing, chain-smoking, and skirt-chasing, which we did, you're in store for some great entertainment! The skits are corny, but funny because they are performed tongue-in-cheek. He was known for never rehearsing, so he doesn't take himself seriously, nor does anyone else! Oh how I miss the variety show format.
The celebrity guests are faces from my childhood, and I've loved introducing the children to the likes of Jonathan Winters, Frank Sinatra, Buddy Hacket, Jimmy Stewart, Bob Newhart, Orson Welles, Petula Clark, Ella Fitzgerald, Lena Horne, Bing Crosby, and the list goes on and on.
The crooning is fantastic with incomparable romance. If you see the infomercial, order it.
