First recorded in 1954 by Dean Martin, this popular 'bolero-mambo' first became known to me as in it's Shaft form - the 90's electro-pop remix is the version other's will have grown up with too :) It's also been covered my Michael Buble and The Pussycat Dolls. It's a really catchy, upbeat melody, a great one for beginners on any instrument :)
