While you're at it, check out this clip from the movie. It's Sammy singing Eee-O Eleven. He's such an incredible entertainer.

Love Sammy Davis!! I learned that when singing lyrics, to get the meaning of the songs words across, you have to articulate them well or it becomes a whole other genre of music. Sammy is able to jump from one to the other so effortlessly, but I love it when I understand everything he's saying in his songs.

Whenever I perform (NOT professionally, mind you) I make sure to take my time so every word is understood. I haven't quite got Sammy's perfect sense of timing down yet to make it as seamless as he does, but soon enough...LOL! I think it might have something to do with the way he moves his jaws. :-) Thanks for another great video!

Hey Erma. Thanks for the comments. Great hearing from you. It was quite a nice response. I've never been a performer so I have no clue about any of this. Thanks for filling me in on it.

Sammy was always a great entertainer. He could do it all...sing, dance, act, do impressions, you name it. He's one of my favorite entertainers to watch perform. I always enjoy clips of him.

I'm glad you enjoyed the video. Cheers!

I love that bowling photo. After that movie I always feel a little jipped when I go into a Bowling Alley and there isn't any one half as cool as they are hanging out. Imagine walking in to bowl and the Rat Pack was there just hanging out?

Hey ~k. Thanks for the comments. Glad you liked it. I really dig that photo myself. I know what you mean. I would love to go to my local bowling alley to find these cool cats hanging out there. I would definitely be going there more often. Cheers!

I've seen some clip from the early day of Sammy when he was together with his father, I think it was. He was an amazing entertainer even as a kid.

Pardon my English, I only have basic school English from the aged of 11 to 16, :-(

Keith said...

Hey Sid. Thanks for the comments. Your English is totally fine. Heck, it's better than many native English speakers. Sammy was a great entertainer from the time he was a little kid. Cheers!
