Beyond The Song is the quintessential tribute to an innovative performer whose tragically brief life was often stranger than fiction. With songs like "Splish Splash," "Beyond The Sea" and the classic "Mack The Knife" (all included on this DVD) under his belt by age 23, Bobby Darin soon found himself confronted by simply everything he ever had wanted; but it wasn't nearly enough. He died on December 20, 1973 at the age of 37.
Featured in the show are live performance clips including: "Dream Lover," "As Long As I'm Singing" and "If I Were A Carpenter."
This engaging program traces Darin's career from his first television appearance in 1956 to his last in 1973. Along the way, interviews with family and friends help to illustrate the deep impact that Bobby had on those fortunate enough to know him.
Having overcome a heart problem that dogged his teenage years, Bobby Darin rose to fame in spectacular style. A master performer and songwriter, Darin hit the charts with tracks such as "Mack The Knife" and "Beyond The Sea." However, his health problems caught up with him, and he passed away prematurely in 1973. BEYOND THE SONG tells the story of Darin's remarkable existence, and includes many of the songs that made his name.
