Daily One Inch Button - Bobby Darin

Pop. Jazz. Folk. Rock and Roll. You tell me who conquered those fields of music that wasn't Bobby Darin, and I will be one impressed lover of one inch buttons. There is so much more that Bobby Darin could have done had he not died at such a tender young age.

He could sing about Mack the Knife and nobody could touch his recording other than Louis and Ella, I think. The song remains one of our favorites here at the Daily One Inch Button, by the way. Would have have done as well had he gone by his birth name, Walden Robert Cassotto? Possibly not, but that would have been a tragedy in its own right.
