  1. Marie,

    How are you doing after your recent shot? I saw on FB that you got some immediate relief. I hope that’s still the case. I sent ya the linky code last week. It might have gotten lost in the slush of incoming emails. That’s what usually happens on my end. lol Anyhow, fabulous songs. You and I are on the same page with “It’s a Marshmallow World”. 🙂 Have a joyful week, dearie! XO

    1. So, my back is doing well, just have to be careful & not overdo! I sent you & email telling you about it last night my friend! You sent me a linky… didn’t I use the right one last week? hmmmm Do I have the right one today? I’ll tell ya girlfriend my memory is SHOT! Plus I use to have a real good judgment in picking our people and other things & now I suck! 🙁 I HATE getting old… ;( Thank you so much for all your help. I cannot begin to thank you! HUGS Yes, Marshmallow World was a favorite of my Mom’s too and how Dean & Frank danced around when they sang this same song together. hahaha~ MERRY CHRISTMAS, girlfriend & my sista from another mutha! HUGS

    1. Can’t wait to see whatcha got for me next week, Alex! Yep, that giant bear I thought was a real hoot & what a surprise, right? Nope, I surely wouldn’t have left the window open no matter how far away I was, but if you look closely there is a wire fence between them and I think a long ditch, but not very deep. Merry Christmas my friend!

  2. You’ve got some classic baritone crooners going on here. Most of our “Classic Christmas Songs” came from this time frame and the crooners. Nicely done.

  3. Dean Martin was always such a wiseguy. I never missed his show, and you cn see why.

    Frank and Bing sounded pretty good together, didn’t they?

    I like how Elvis did one side of secular soings and the other of religious songs. He was an excellent gospel singer and an overall good guy. Like I always say, his mama raised him right.

    Good set!

    1. Hey John, We never missed a show either. My Gram & Mom was totally in love with Dean and I loved his antics. haha They made us all happy. Even my dad liked Dean’s show… but probably for the girls I’m sure. hahaha Yes, Frank & Dean were good together they even did a movie together with Grace when they were younger. Well, as far as Elvis he was a great gospel singer and I believe because of his mom wasn’t it? He truly loved his mama and even bought her a Cadillac & guess what color that was… hahaha! MERRY CHRISTMAS, JOHN! hugs

  4. I love them all. I’ve not heard A Marshmallow World. Awesome.

    I linked this post to Awww Mondays because of that waving bear.

    Have a fabulous day and week, Marie. Love you. ♥

    1. Awwww Hello my Friend! So happy you like my tunes and you have NOT hear of Marshmallow World???? Oh my GOSH!!!! That song is infamous with Dean & Frank singin’ it & dancin’ around! hahaha~ You have to look it up on You Tube & watch! You’ll love it. HUGS… Luv U 2~~ Always!!!

  5. I did Hanukkah songs last week, and this week I’m doing ‘Offensive’ Christmas songs – being that Baby its Cold Outside is all over the news. So stop by and listen to some non-offensive offensive Christmas tunes! I might go tongue-in-cheek again next week, but not sure. You’ll have to stop in to find out 🙂

  6. My mother loved Frank Sinatra so much and it was nice hearing him teamed with one of my favs, Bing Crosby. But my favorite of all these was the first, with Dean Martin and A Marshmallow World. It’s been YEARS since this elf has heard the song. The Carrie Underwood video was unavailable – definitely some one was not feeling the Christmas spirit!

  7. Hey, it’s only Tuesday – how come I don’t see any music up above? Hmmm… I tried another browser, but for some reason your tunes are AWOL, my friend! I’ll be back to dance – just wanted to give you a heads up! 🙂 Hope you’re having a great week!
