Just came across this duet with Dean Martin and Tony Bennett on YouTube, so I thought I'd share it with you guys. I grew up listening to these two, as well as Frank Sinatra of course, and it's really great to see a video of them performing when they were in their prime. I'm only 23, so all of them are obviously from a different era than I, but their music is timeless and great. It still is pretty much the only stuff you'll hear on the radio at my parents house.
It's interesting to think about today's music and how, one day in the future, we'll be thinking "this song is a classic" about many of our favorites. Actually, I can't imagine ever saying that about a Ben Harper or Incubus song, or any other great songs from some of my favs. Of course, they're of a different genre. Still, the new class of crooners (Harry Connick Jr., Michael Bublé, etc.) don't seem to be as memorable as Tony, Dino, Franky Boy and the rest were, and still are.
