The genius of Dean Martin

I used to listen to a lot of Dean Martin/Frank Sinatra when I was a kid, mostly because my father was of the Rat Pack generation and loved the old crooners (along with Louis Armstrong and a variety of old Arabic singers). So I grew up listening to Memories are made of this.

I haven't listened to much of his music for the past few years but I've had a bit of a music risorgimento and I'm constantly listening to some of my old favourites: Sway, Volare, Amore etc.

He may not technically have the best vocals of any singer but his charisma and charm blend perfectly with his often mischievous vocal flourishes. What a singer. I wish we had more like him nowadays instead of the crop of crap pop we have to suffer.
