Introducing…Dean Martin.

I compiled a few favorites, including a song guaranteed to help you feel cheerful in the morning, and one of the saddest warmest holiday songs ever. So few folks these days know Dino. I have my old man to thank for my Dean Martin appreciation. ~ W.


Pretty much my favorite morning song ever. It’s impossible not to appreciate the morning with the Dean Martin song:

Okay, get ready: best version of Baby it’s Cold Outside ever, all-time Winter classic

Another Christmas Holiday classic:


The best ever, sad, or nostalgic. Lovely:


This is getting played at my future-hypothetical wedding:

One of my very favorites:



Amore, not a favorite, but a favorite:


You’ll know this from Swingers, perhaps:


There are many other favorites–I have 43 in my iTunes…but that’s a start. Find the ones you love. Did I miss one? Add the link in comments, below, and I’ll add it in!

My dads favorite song was 'King of The Road' 4 a time ~ I'd almost forgotten … TY for not letting me lose some pleasure I really enjoyed, especially dancing w/dad while I put my little feet on the top of my fathers shoes w/little lace-socked feet!

LOVE Dean Martin! Who could possibly resist that charm and easy laugh? I have no idea how many of his songs I have on my iPod….just makes me happy listening to him.
