Singer and Rat Packer Dean Martin was born on this day in 1917. For years he had a weekly variety show that was the highlight of my week. "Memories Are Made Of This" was written by Terry Gilkyson, Richard Dehr, and Frank Miller in 1955. Dean’s recording included background vocals by The Easy Riders, i.e. Gilkyson, Dehr and Miller. It spent five weeks at #1 on Billboard‘s Top 100 (the precursor of the Hot 100), while spending six weeks at the top of the "Most Played By Jockeys" chart, five weeks at the top of the "Best Sellers In Stores," and four weeks atop the "Most Jukebox Plays" chart.
