Happy Birthday, Candyman

On this day in 1925, Sammy Davis, Jr. was born.

For years, Dean Martin was my favorite member of the Rat Pack, but for some reason the older I get the more I become a Sammy-guy. Pure class, and that guy could sing.



Ah, what the heck. Here's another one.

Back in September, Mark Evanier posted a video to his blog of Sammy singing the theme song to Hawaii Five-O. It was a little weird and maybe not quite right. What is right though are his vocals on the theme for Baretta, now that's an awesome TV theme song (I don't recall if it was an awesome TV show, but that's not what we're concerned about today). Here is the link for the Hawaii Five-O entry & theme:
