They call it "Dean's Song"

Well, actually, they call it "Sam's Song"; when Bing Crosby recorded it back in 1950, it didn't occur to him to retitle it "Bing's Song" — or, for that matter, "Gary's Song," what with Gary Crosby singing along with his dad. Bing just didn't do things like that.

On the other hand, Dean Martin, even in the presence of Sammy Davis, Jr., had no such compunctions.

And however many years later, a man named Sam is on the cusp of history, and who's vowed to throw a monkey wrench into the proceedings? Why, a fellow named Dean, as Sean Gleeson illustrates.
