Dean Martin & Roger Miller: Kings Of The Road

I absolutely love this clip. I've always been a fan of Roger Miller's song King of the Road. I grew up listening to that song all the time. I really love this version done between Roger and Dino on The Dean Martin Variety Show.



Who else but Dino could make a trailer a swanky pad full of hot babes? Nobody, that's the answer. That's why Dean Martin is the true and eternal King of Cool. Cheers!

I can't find Dino singing this song anywhere! Thanks for this. Is this song on any CD that you know of?

The King Of Cool said...

Hey Carol. Your welcome. I think Dino's version is on some CDs, but I'm not sure exactly which ones.

The King Of Cool said...

P.S. I did find it on an import CD called The Very Best of Capitol & Reprise Vol. 2 over at Amazon.

I lived in a trailer growing up. I never thought I would want to live in one again, but I'm sold on Dino's idea of a trailer. Great video.

The King Of Cool said...

Hey there. I know what you mean. I lived in a trailer for years. Our place was nothing like this. I wouldn't mind having a trailer like this one.

I wish I had something witty or insightful to say... but, I'm just too starstruck to think of anything. What a glorious clip.

If anyone ever dares to question Dino's ultimate coolness, simply show them this clip - argument over.

Hey pallie DMP. Thanks for the comments. Glad you enjoyed this clip. Dino's definitely a cool and classy cat.

Hey Gilligan. Thanks for the comments. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I really dig this clip. I definitely think it shows just how cool Dino is. Gotta love anybody who can make a trailer a swanky pad. Cheers!

Dean Martin As Matt Helm In Murderers' Row
By The King Of Cool(The King Of Cool)
It was put quickly into production after the huge success of the first movie The Silencers. Murderers' Row was loosely based on the 1962 novel of the same name by Donald Hamilton. Dean Martin returned in the title role of Matt.

Hey pallie DMP. LOL Forget that you saw that. Oops. I didn't think about the fact that it might show up on Google Alerts. I'm working on that post about "MR." I posted it on the blog to take a look at it and then saved it back as a draft. I'm hoping to have it ready by this Tuesday. Okay? Sorry about the confusion. I do hope you like it when I get it finished. Cheers!
