Dean or Frank?


For me, it's always been Dean.

Although all we heard was Frank Sinatra when we were growing up, I loved Dean Martin's voice as soon as I heard it; I spent countless evenings in the late '80s and early nineties wallowing in the sentimentality of 'Little ol' wine drinker, me' which featured on the famous jukebox in Bradley's bar in Hanway Place. As San Miguel carried me away, I always chose Dean to accompany me on my journey into oblivion.

Frank? I think he's overrated. So shoot me.

I'm with you Guy, one of my fave tracks, You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You, is on a soundtrack to Things to do in Denver, When you're Dead.....some great songs on that one.

Dean Martin effortlessly surpassed sinatra by far in talent and cool factor." Houston " and " Watch'n the girls go by " are garage favorite's.

I agree,
Dean always came off as supremely cool, Frank seemed like he was trying to prove he was.
