Thank you Kyle. That was wonderful. Bonnie Hunt designed her talk show set as a tribute to Dean Martin. Wish she could get music like this on her show!

It may not be healthy but I love the music of the "Cigarettes & Booze" era.

This one comes to mind. Too bad Kevin is no longer with us.

Never heard of Toy Matinee. Not bad.....
Now for a trip a little further back, here's one of my favorites. Since the movie Slapshot it puts me in the mood to lace up and skate with the Hanson brothers

Thanks much Kyle, this was great - the others just can't compare to the Mills Brothers and Dean Martin. They are great - my kind of music.

Surly one can't have such a list without Marty...

This is a great thread, Kyle - The Dean Martin Show, which was a really great show, and Marty Robbins. I've never been a huge C&W fan but I've always liked Marty Robbins.

I'm only 35 and I love this music. Good taste never goes out of style. I love my Ozzy & Guns N' Roses but the classics always have rotation in my iPod.

Marty Robbins was the man. He wasn't the first to do this song, but I associate it with him. My Granddad Cecil could recite this song from memory from listening to phonograph records of it when he was a kid.

I am extremely disappointed, after sitting through 3 minutes and 12 seconds of Deano and the Mills Brothers, that the song was not "Cab Driver".

I bet Johnny Russell got all the women - orange coveralls, svelte build, and neck beard. Nice.

Interestingly enough, the lyrics of "Don't Fence Me In" were written by Bob Fletcher, an accomplished poet and a Plans Engineer for the Montana Department of Highways (now the Department of Transportation)during the 1930s and 1940s. Cole Porter bought the poem from Fletcher and it became one of Porter's greatest hits. It was not until 1954 that Fletcher got credit for composing the lyrics. Fletcher is also the "father" of the "Montana Historical Highway Markers" program that we see along Montana's highways today.

Yeah . . . Fletcher was a noted cowboy-poet in his day. A person can google him and find some of his work online.
