Dean Martin - "King of the Road"
He was smooth, he was charming, he was crass, and he always had a mischievous twinkle in his eye. Dean Martin was the King of Cool, and had the charm and charisma to carry that title off.
Dean Martin was an Italian-American singer, actor, comedian, and film producer. One of the most popular and enduring American entertainers of the mid-20th century, Martin was nicknamed the "King of Cool" for his seemingly effortless charisma and self-assurance.
He and Jerry Lewis were partners as the immensely popular comedy team Martin and Lewis, and afterwards he was a member of the "Rat Pack", and a star in concert stages, nightclubs, recordings, motion pictures, and television. He was the host of the television variety program The Dean Martin Show (1965–1974) and The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast (1974–1984).
Martin's relaxed, warbling crooning voice earned him dozens of hit singles including his signature songs "Memories Are Made of This", "That's Amore", "Everybody Loves Somebody", "You're Nobody till Somebody Loves You", "Sway", "Volare", and "Ain't That a Kick in the Head?".
So today, with confidence and charisma, I choose Dean Martin's "King of the Road" as my, wherever your road leads, take out your machete and make your way, let no man put asunder, song for a, go down every dead end just to say you have, from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm, break open your heart and let the love fall out, Monday.
