|The warmest (and one of the most underrated) pair of pipes|
the world was ever lucky to have.

- This is my all time favorite Dean Martin song. The first time I heard it, I got goosebumps. Every time I hear it now, my heart simply melts and I get all warm and gooey and sad inside. I just love it.
- So very romantic. It makes me feel very dreamy and light.
- Based on the song Let Me Go, Devil (which was about alcoholism), there have been many versions, the first being by Joan Weber, but no one can sing a slow, sad song like Dean. His voice was made for those sort of songs, and it really shines here.
- This song just makes me very happy, and I'm always singing along to it.
- This song is just magical to me. Dean's rich baritone is very prominent and put to good use (and I just love the way he says "firelight"). Dean made it go to number 1 on the easy listening charts, making his version the most successful.
- Needless to say, this is probably one of the most saddest songs that has ever been written. Dean and sad songs? A beautiful combination. I always thought that this was Dean's song, and then I happened to hear Bobby Goldsboro, the originator, sing it on the radio one day. I had a fit. This is Dean's song from start to finish to me. I don't hear and, most importantly, I don't feel the emotion in Goldsboro's version. Anytime I hear Dean singing it, it feels like my heart is being slowly torn in two.
- Though he's technically a Yankee, Dean could really sing some country . . .
- Fun to listen and sing along to.
- This is the song that started my love for Dean. I've never gone back.
- Yes, technically this is Roger Miller's song, I know, but have you ever noticed how if the song was someone else's Dean always made it his own when he got his hands on it?
