I had so many choices for the letter "S". It could have been one of my favorites Franz Schubert. Igor Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring" surely could rank as dream music. Or in modern music I could have gone with great groups like Spirit, Spanky and Our Gang, Strawberry Alarm Clock, or even Santana. Solo artists like Frank Sinatra, Carly Simon, Paul Simon, or Selena also might have been considered.
