Ahhhhh...welcome back pallies.

Man o man...what a BEA U TI FUL croon I have for this week's Dino-Amore Month Serenade!

Now, pals...I've heard it said that French is known as "the language of love!
Well, my friends...this here jam has made Danny G. a believer! Haha!!

Vive le France!

Hahaha!!!

This tune is just SO SO ROMANTICO!!!

I cant take it!

 "La Vie En Rose"...which I thinks is "loosely" translated..."rosey life"... or "life in roses".

I'm thinkin' it's sayin' how WONDERFUL life can be when you is just SO SO deeply in love.

Mama mia!
So ROMANTICO!
I have to repeat myself, pals!

It's just such a PRETTY PRETTY song, no matter WHAT gets lost in translation!

  It's SURE to melt away Ol' Man Winter's icy days  & heat up even the CHILLIEST of nights!

Man...Dino SURELY knew how to set the mood & he SURELY knew how to speak from the heart!

Hey pals...I'm thinkin'...if youse maybe still have yet to find love...durin' this VERY special month... & may be wonderin' exactly what to do...I have a suggestion.

PUT THIS SERENADE ON REPEAT & THROW OPEN THE WINDOWS!!! Hahaha!!!

That's ALL youse needs to do, mi love seekin' amici!

 Who could resist Dino croonin' a la French style?! Ha!

Well pals...that's my advice.

Spread some love into the air & keep an open heart.

We never know what life will throw at us tomorrow.

Romance maybe??? Haha!!

Enjoy, pals!   

Hold me close and hold me fast
The magic spell you cast
This is la vie en rose
When you kiss me heaven sighs
And though I close my eyes
I see la vie en rose
When you press me to your heart
I'm in a world apart a world where roses bloom
And when you speak angels sing from above
Every day's words seem to turn into love songs
Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be la vie en rose
La la la la
De de de de
Every day's words seem to turn into love songs
Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be la vie en rose

Today could be YOUR day, pals!

And if not...don't worry...there's always tomorrow...& life is GOOD!

Enjoy!




Everybody loves somebody sometime
Everybody falls in love somehow
Something in your kiss just told me
My sometime is now

Everybody finds somebody someplace
There's no telling where love may appear
Something in my heart keeps saying
My someplace is here

If I had it in my power
I'd arrange for every girl to have your charms
Then every minute, every hour
Every boy would find what I found in your arms

Everybody loves somebody sometime
And although my dream was overdue
Your love made it well worth waiting
For someone like you

Love forever true
For you and I have a guardian angel
On high with nothin' nothin' to do

Cool Dino-Amore Day Thoughts...

Checks out this COOL commentary I stumbled upon in today's local paper, pals...

Purcell Commentary: Where has all the romance gone

When I was a boy, my mother loved listening to American crooners on our old wooden stereo console - Dean Martin was her favorite.
Though I hated his "old people" music as I kid, I listen to it frequently on satellite radio when I'm driving my truck.










Here's why: Dino celebrated romance, "a feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love," says Dictionary.com.
And if modern music is the measure, romance is dead.
I point to Billboard Magazine's Hot 100 list.
Last week's No. 1 hit was "Shape of You" by Ed Sheeran. His song is popular, no doubt, because of its eloquent lyrics:
I'm in love with the shape of you
We push and pull like a magnet do
Although my heart is falling too
I'm in love with your body
And last night you were in my room
And now my bedsheets smell like you...
No. 2 on the charts was "Bad and Boujee" by American hip hop group Migos. Many of the lyrics for the song are unpublishable in a family newspaper, but, with edits in parentheses, these lines will do:
(Fornicating) on your (derogatory term for a woman that sounds like witch) she a (prostitute, prostitute, prostitute, prostitute)
Cookin' up dope in the crockpot, (pot)...
Ah, modern romance. Things sure have changed since Dino dropped off the charts.
Whereas today's top hits celebrate human nature at its most base, Dino's music spoke to the heart.
Consider the lyrics to "Amore," which means "love" in Italian:
When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie
That's amore
When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine
That's amore
In 1964, when The Beatles' new sound made them the most popular band on Earth, Dino knocked "Hard Day's Night" out of the top spot on the charts. He did so with "Everybody Loves Somebody," an old-fashioned song that still resonates with all age groups:
Everybody loves somebody sometime
Everybody falls in love somehow
Something in your kiss just told me
That sometime is now
Whereas many of today's hit songs are vulgar and cynical, Dino's songs celebrate the subtle dance of the spirit between a man and a woman - the magic that occurs when two complementary natures collide.
Dino's songs celebrate mystery - the deep interest and curiosity a man holds for a woman and a woman for a man.
They celebrate optimism - the hope that one day a special person will enter your life and sweep you off your feet, a person you will love forever.
The simple, intense lyrics of his song "Sway" sum up this longing well:
Other dancers may be on the floor
Dear, but my eyes will see only you
Only you have the magic technique
When we sway I go weak
I know Dino had his peccadilloes in his personal life, but his music remains untainted. With every passing year, as coarseness seeps into our culture a little more, his songs hold more power over me. Their sweetness and respectfulness uplift me.
We need to get back to that spirit - the spirit of romance. I can't think of a better day to do so than Valentine's Day.
All we need to do is study the older couples who attend the annual Dean Martin Festival in Steubenville, Ohio, Dino's hometown.
As the Dean Martin impersonator takes the stage - a fellow so convincing you think the old crooner is there in the flesh - they saunter to the front of the stage holding hands. They begin to sway with a sweetness and easiness that couples knew long ago.
When there was romance.
