Song of the Day: Dean Martin, “Ain’t That A Kick In The Head”

Lyricist Sammy Cahn, who wrote songs with Jule Styne and Jimmy Van Heusen for singers Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Doris Day and others, was born on this day in 1913. He and Van heusen wrote the music for many of the Rat Pack movies, including Ocean’s 11, from which "Ain’t That A Kick In The Head" is taken. Dean Martin recorded it in 1960 and released it before the movie. The song failed to chart, but it was one of Dean’s most familiar songs.
