Who Sings Chrysler 300c Ad With Dean Martin?

Who Sings Chrysler 300c Ad With Dean Martin?

It nagged me all night, so I looked it up. It's definitely Dino. Nobody else sounds that smooooth. Dean Martin's voice oddly mixes with the husky voice of...lovely Julie London.
Mix done by Matt Haines, wonderful photographer.

Matt grouses he was only paid a flat fee long ago, but hey Matt your work is in a national ad.

I do agree though - getting paid would be better! You can read about it here. Listen to the mixed song.

And here is Dean Martin & Julie London's album.

    It's my own fault for not getting some sort of percentage on the deal, but the deal would likely have not gone through if I'd insisted. I'm not grousing about the industry or anything like that. Just wishing my most successful track of all time had NOT been a buyout. I released over 120 tracks back in the day, and it just HAD to be this one…

    But yes you're right, it's a big honor. Bittersweet but still a big thrill.

    Matt, you're great. I know it's a mixed bag, but but you just got a break. Send out a press release - alert the media a track you did "back in the day" is all over the networks. You may not feel it, but you're hot right now. That Chrysler ad is on several times a day, in front of 40 or so million people. I'll bet pushing right now might yield some more jobs. Best of luck, and write any time.
