Free Music Tuesday: Rat Pack edition

Because of my upcoming trip to Vegas, I'm in a Rat Pack mood. I've got two classics for you this week. First up is Dean Martin's medley "Drink To Me Only With Thine Eyes/I Don't Care If The Sun Don't Shine/I Love Vegas (Paris)," recorded live at the Sands. Also up is my favorite lesser-known Frank Sinatra song - "The Coffee Song." Leave a comment request either or both and I'll send you what you want. A ring a ding ding.

Along these lines, I'm trying to think of who will be filling the Rat Pack roles in my gang's Summit in Vegas this week. Because I was the only one to get drunk last time, I guess that makes me Dean-o (yeah, yeah - I know his inebriation was all a schtick and he actually drank applejuice on stage. Save it.). Dubin would have to be Sammy because he's Jewish (and a helluva dancer). KPMD would be Shirley MacLaine because she's our token female. Sorry, Shamrock - CB's going to have to be Frank because he's Italian and probably has more Mob connections than you. That makes Shamrock either Joey Bishop or Peter Lawford. I'll let him decide who he wants to be.

I guess I'm alright with the assigned roles. Anyway, Tina always thought that CB always looked like a young Frank and he arrives before me. Plus CB has a voice of a songbird. I always thought Spyder was Lawford, but I guess since 1) he is unable to attend, 2) I live in the UK, and 3) I like to think I have nice hair like Angus MacFadyen, I shall relent and be the guy that everone forgets is in Ocean's Eleven (the non-Brad Pitt version). I would like to make a suggestion though...Since Dubin is more of a fuuny guy than a Fred Astaire, should he not be Joey Bishop? I look forward to seeing our less-than-cool version of the Rat Pack soon...

Who's going to be Emilio Estevez? Molly Ringwald? and what about Rob Lowe?

Ahem...let us not forget that Sister of Shamrock will also be in Vegas. Assuming Frank and Dino never had a panda, it's only fitting that she be Marilyn.

(oh, and after 3 months of sporatic blogging, I'm finally in my place w/internet. I'm back, baby.)

I'm officially protesting my designation as Shirley Maclaine because a)she's not hot and b)she's a freak (mostly (a)). I am requesting a re-designation as Ann Margaret cuz a) she's much hotter and b)I really liked her in Grumpy Old Men.
If I must remain as Shirley I will be forced to talk about my past lives and meditate in the middle of the gaming floor. However, if I am Ann - I will wear a very tight shirt and act, generally, like a sex kitten. The choice is yours, Micah...choose wisely.

THSE - We'll be the Brat Pack if we hit up Atlantic City.

CB - *smacks head* Whoops! You're right - Amanda is such the sexpot.

KPMD - That's the hand you were dealt. And I really don't see you making good on that promise. You still haven't modeled your schoolgirl outfit for me.
