Bobby Darin was the original "Prince of Cool" back in the early 60s.

quote:
Kevin Spacey
He was the coolest cat that ever walked the face of the earth.


Well, okay, I don't think I'd agree with that, but the man was great. You have to admit that "Beyond The Sea" is addictingly catchy. And we can't forget his biggest hit:"Mack The Knife". I also enjoyed his rendition of Ray Charles' "What'd I Say". A few weeks ago, I saw "Beyond The Sea", which is the movie based on his life that Kevin Spacey directed and starred in. It was an okay movie, but it was nothing spectacular. But Spacey does do wonderful renditions of Darin's hits.

I was watching season 2 of Millennium on dvd. And going 'could this show become more awesome?'

Then a couple of the episodes started having bobby darin songs in them. And I realized "yes, yes it can".

Because really..the song "so long charlie", and a secret society attempting to shape the course of the end times. Thats pretty much as good as you can possibly make something.

Hah, I had Mack the Knife stuck in my head earlier today. And Spacey's singing sounded insanely close to Darin's in Beyond the Sea. =O
