Dean Martin, 1917-1995, was a movie star, a television icon, and a recording artist who sold tens-of-millions of records. His films with Jerry Lewis were comedy classics and his TV series, THE DEAN MARTIN SHOW (1965-1974) and his CELEBRITY ROASTS (1974-1985) made him a star for twenty years.
During his recording career, he placed 40 songs on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart, 1948-1969. While many people remember him for his 1964 number one hit, “Everybody Loves Somebody;” it was 1956’s “Memories Are Made Of This” that was the biggest hit of his career as it topped all four BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Charts.
