Dino Hits Number One On This Day!!!

It was on this day in 1964 that Dean Martin's Everybody Loves Somebody knocked the Beatles' Hard Day's Night out of #1. It's so awesome that it took the King of Cool himself to knock the biggest band in the world out of the top spot. Here's a video clip of Dino and the Duke performing this tune on The Dean Martin Variety Show. This video always cracks me up. These two were always great together. I hope you enjoy it. Cheers!

I love this song. This is a really funny video. I don't think I have ever seen this one before. I really wish we could watch all these episodes today.

The King Of Cool said...

Me too. It's definitely Dino's signature song. I love how it took Dino to knock the Beatles out of the top spot. That's so cool.

Hey pallie DMP. Yeah, I saw your post about this day. I left you some Dinopatter there. I think it's great for both of us to make mention of this special day. It is a date that needs to be celebrated.

Must have been quite a day for Dean and good to see it celebrated here.

The King Of Cool said...

Thanks Steve. I think that was a big surprise back then that Dino could knock the Beatles out of #1. It's definitely a day that Dino fans love to celebrate.

Hey Keith,
Did you know Dean sent Elvis a telegram on the day he did this telling him about since The Beatles had been giving him so much trouble on the charts...great song and what a feat!

The King Of Cool said...

Hey Jeremy. Thanks for the comments. Yeah, I had heard that. I thought it was really cool. I'm really proud of Dino for this.

JFK Jean said...

Haha @ Jeremy Richey. I'm not all too happy about it but I guess if anyone had to do it, why not Dean Martin?

Keith said...

I did think it was cool that it took Dino to do this.
