Danny G 's Sunday Serenade with Dino: "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head"


Hey there, mi amici!
How's my bros & gals of Dino?
How's your weather?
Warm? Chilly? Sunny? Drizzly? All of the above?! Haha!
Yea...here too, pals
Oh well...that's April for ya'.
But guess what? I ain't complainin'!
Nope!
Not this fella!
No way!
Not me!
Well...maybe I moan a wee bit. Hahaha!!!

Oh well, that's OK. It's only normal to feel a little down when the clouds just won't go away, pals. 

But...don't youse worry, my friends! Dean is here & it don't matter WHAT it's like outside...he's gonna croon a tune that will AB SO LUTE LY gets us in a bright & sunny kinda mood!

What's a little rain anyway?
No big deal, Ol pallies o mine.

Just do what I do, when the gray gray skies gots me in a gray gray mood...pour a little drink & throw on a little Dino!

Yes sir!
It's as simple as that, pals!

I thinks today's Serenade will help to lift those rainy day blues away.

"Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head" seems to fit just right for these early Spring days!

Ain't worth feelin sad, pallies.
Can't change the weather.
What we CAN change is how we deal with it!

Follow Dean's lead...keep your head up!

Take the cloudy days with the sunny ones.

Like the song say's..."Cryin's not for me...'cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'...because I'm free...nothin's worryin' me"!

Ha!

Don't youse just love it?!

So So Dino!

Soak it in, my friends!



Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
Just like a guy who's feet are too big for his bed
Nothing seems to fit, those raindrops are fallin' on my head they keep fallin'
So I just did me some talkin' to the sun
And I said I didn't like the way he got things done
Sleepin' on the job, oh raindrops are fallin' on my head they keep fallin'
But there's one thing I know, the blues they send to meet me
Won't defeat me, it won't be long 'til happiness steps up to greet me
Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me, 'cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free nothing's worryin' me
(It won't be long 'til happiness steps up to greet me)
Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me, oh I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free nothin's worryin' me

Hey pallies, likes we're back with more incredible international style,  awesome adulation of our delightful Dino international.  From our pallies down under at the online presence of "The Sydney Morning Herald" comes news that our most beloved Dino as swingin' spyster Matt Helm in "Murder's Row" will be shown on the  Fox Classic (pay-TV) at 8:35 p.m. (Aussie time, of course) on Tuesday, April 24.

Likes when we first read this through the cool courtesy of our pallies at google 'lerts we thought that we woulda be too late in gettin' this Dino-reported to all our down under pallies, but then as we read more closely we see that  this noteworthy news was posted on April 16 so that there was plenty of time to get it shared here at ilovedinomartin.  While, of course, we simply must disagree with SM who wrote this post when they sez, "Murderer's is beyond trivial, but sometimes fun," we, of course, awesomely agree with their wise words that "Dean Martin is effortlessly charming."

So, to all our Aussie Dino-holics we sez make note of this Dino-date: April 24 and this Dino-time: 8:35 p.m. if youse has access to Fox Classics.  We say Salute! to the pallies at "The Sydney Morning Herald" and at Fox Classics for bringin' what we believes is the bestest of the bestest Matt Helmers to viewers in Aussieland!   To checks this out in it's original source, per usual, simply clicks on the tag of this Dino-report.

Yours In Dino,

Dino Martin Peters

What's on TV: Tuesday, April 24


Murderer's Row (1966)

Fox Classics (pay-TV), 8.35pm

In the mid-1960s, with the James Bond film franchise in full flight, producers around the globe battled to find the best way to cash in on the secret-agent boom. In England, Ralph Thomas tried with Dirk Bogarde in Hot Enough for June (1964). In America, James Coburn famously played Derek Flint in Our Man Flint (1966) and In Like Flint (1967). Dean Martin also picked up a gun and seduced the ladies in four Matt Helm films (1966-68). In the first, The Silencers (Fox Classics, today, midday), Matt thwarts the sinister Big-O organisation and flirts with Gail and Tina, played by major screen sirens Stella Stevens and Daliah Lavi. The film – a not-at-all meaningful spy spoof – was a hit and Murderer's Row followed months later. Evil Big-O is back and Matt again flirts with the leading ladies, this time played by Ann Margaret and Carmilla Sparv. Murderer's is beyond trivial, but sometimes fun, and Dean Martin is effortlessly charming. SM
