It’s the Weekend Again: Let us Go Italian with Dean Martin

Yes, it is weekend again. The singer-entertainer we choose is the versatile Dean Martin. He needs no introduction to all of us, the young and the not so young. Dean is gone (on December 25, 1995), but he left us with a priceless and rich collection of songs and movies to celebrate his rich and colourful life, performed in his unique style.

Dr. Kamsiah and Din Merican were in Angeles, some years ago (2011) and had the opportunity  to visit  the crypt of Dean Martin, at Westwood Memorial Park in downtown Los Angeles to pay our respect to him, Marilyn Monroe, Mel Torme, Peggy Lee, Farah Fawcett-Majors, and Natalie Woods, among others, thanks our special friend Ibrahim Karim. Ibrahim, as some of you may know, is a regular commenter on Din’s blog.

While we were in the city of angels, we also met Dr. Bakri Musa and his gracious wife, Karen Musa, who took us  to Santa Barbara for the weekend. It was a memorable trip. Dean’s renditions surely bring fond memories of sunny California  for us. –Dr. Kamsiah and Din Merican

  1. under the present environment the ideal song would be Doris Day’s Que Sera Sera – what ever will be will be

  2. Thank you Din & Dr – you both have provided me with the most interesting read in your blogs and all those lovely haunting old melodies , not forgetting all the Jazz tunes I loved so much .
    They have never failed to ‘pep’ up my slow Sunday afternoons .

    You both are of a totally different make-up from other people I’ve come across, especially now when the country is at its lowest ebb,
    As I’ll be visiting SF & LA in Dec I shall try to make a call to Westwood Memorial Park to pay my respects to my old Hollywood favorites . In fact now I’m writing this to the croonings of Dean Martin’s Italian beat Appreciate the entertainment you’ve provided us so very often. God bless all of you. SH

    SH Tan,

    You must and repeat must visit Westwood Memorial Park in downtown LA and pay your respects to Dean Martin, Mel Torme, Marilyn Monroe, Peggy Lee, Natalie Wood-Wagner, Farah Fawcett-Majors, and others. You need to also spend some time to visit the graves of other famous artistes and actors.Please place a red rose each of them on our behalf. LA’s Rodeo Drive is a place to visit for some shopping.

    Don’t forget to take some photos when you visit them in their final resting places and share those photos with us on your Facebook.–Din Merican
