This classic love song seems to float on air. So light, so smooth, so starry. A little lullaby that makes you want to tuck yourself in and dream.
And what better dream is there than a dream of the one you love? It’s the perfect way to end the day. Okay, sitting in a bistro by the Seine with a glass of wine is pretty good, too. But you get the idea…sweet dreams.
We’ll be singing Dream a Little Dream of Me in our next concert performance, Sun, Moon & Stars, at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4, at St. Katharine of Siena Church in Wayne. Come out and join us. We’ll have you dreaming in no time.
- This song was first recorded in 1931 by Ozzie Nelson of The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet fame. It was later covered dozens of times, including versions recorded by Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong, Doris Day and French singer Enzo Enzo.
- The most popular version was recorded by The Mamas and Papas in the 1960s, with Cass Elliot singing the solo.
- Cass did her own whistling on the song.
