For Your Weekend Listening: The Crooners
Dr. Kamsiah and I think it is time we brought back some crooners from the past and also two contemporary singers for your weekend entertainment.
When we are in Los Angeles last year, visiting Semper Fi and Dr Bakri Musa, we went to the final resting place of Dean Martin, Marilyn Monroe, Natalie Wood-Wagner, Mel Torme, Peggie Lee, Farah Fawcett and others. Semper Fi was our guide. That is why I dedicate Dean’s Everybody Loves Somebody to him. Since Frank is a New Yorker, Mr. Bean gets honorable mention here.
The crooners we feature this weekend are Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Billy Eckstine with tunes that are identified with them. You will agree with that these crooners are among the best that has come out of American music.
We also play songs by Barry Manilow and Canada’s singing sensation, Michael Buble, who is very popular in Malaysia. Trust you will enjoy our selection for this weekend.–Dr. Kamsiah and Din Merican
