This seems like the perfect place to introduce my infatuation with my boys ... Sammy, Frank and Dean. Their songs are timeless, easy and uncomplicated ... the perfect combination for slumber. Besides, being lulled to sleep by the velvety voices of the Rat Pack is ohhhh, so sweet!
Dean Martin's Everybody Loves Somebody brings me right back to my childhood and memories of my Grandpa Joe. I'm not even really sure why ... though he was tall and thin like Dean, at the time he drank like Dean, he sang to me (When the Red, Red Robin comes bob, bob, bobbin' along) and he definitely made me feel like somebody loved me. So, in the comfort of Dean and Grandpa Joe ... I can easily fall asleep to this tune.

Frank Sinatra is very convincing when he persuades us to take it nice and easy ... in his soft, melodic rhythm with jazzy undertones kind of way. So, even on my most stress-filled days, Frank has the power to calm, relax and tranquilize my way to sleep.

On a more whimsical note, Sammy Davis Jr. promises a life filled with sweetness and candy. No matter what type of day I may have, Sammy has a perfect way to end it with a hopeful tomorrow ... "'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good."
