Today's Morning Edition music is from 50 years ago today when "Everybody Loves Somebody" by Dean Martin was on top of the pop charts. At the time he made this record, the song was nearly 20 years old and had been recorded by several artists including Frank Sinatra. But Martin added an orchestra and a chorus and made the song a hit. Never a fan of rock 'n' roll, Martin was pleased to knock "A Hard Day's Night" by the Beatles out of the No. 1 position.
