    No, not the song by LRB.

    I was thinking back tonight about some of the music I heard growing up, and one of my favorite songs was "Everybody Loves Somebody" by Dean Martin. He was a terrific singer and entertainer (as well as a hard drinker) and this old clip is him right in his wheelhouse. He plays a bit with the lyrics (the censors of that day must have been really nervous!!) and tells a could of jokes, one of which had me quite literally laughing out loud.



    And hey, the first movie star I can really remember is the Duke, and here's a clip of him teaming up with Dean not in a movie (though they did that, too), but in song.





    So when you reminisce, what songs spring to mind? I'll add more of the thread gets interesting. ;)

    I remember hearing the Beatles back as a small boy, and thinking how great they sounded! 1967!!

    Sticking w/the Rat Pack, my dad had Frank Sinatra records and reel to reel tapes (Yes, I'm old!:D)

    Then, in the 80s when Michelob used "The Way You Look Tonight" in their commercials, I could remember my dad playing the reel to reel tapes during the holidays. It was a tradition.

    Alone Again, Naturally - Gilbert O'Sullivan

    When I first heard it I thought it was just a lament for lost love not a description of suicide.

    I started to pay attention to music in the 1960's. I only started to understand in the 1980's.
