Everly Brothers

             I first became aware of the song "All I Have To Do Is Dream" from an album by surf rocker duo Jan and Dean.  Soon after becoming enamored with that song when I was in early adolescence, I learned that it had originally been a hit sung by the Everly Brothers in 1958.

              Now I'm not necessarily going to classify the Everly Brothers as artists who performed "dream music" although some of their songs are certainly dreamy, but "All I Have To Do Is Dream" is about dreaming so there you go.

             And if nothing else, the video that I've picked for this song has a certain dream-like quality to it.

  1. Lee I was going to have Dream by The Everly Brothers but chose Bobby Darin instead. I love this song, I also like one of their last songs written by Paul McCartney "On The Wings Of A Nightingale.

    Good post.


  2. one of the best love songs ever.

  3. I always liked the Everly Brothers...gosh...haven't listened to that music in a long long time.

  4. It was all about the music, the words. No flashy stuff needed, no ethereal dreamscapes. And still a lovely song.

  5. Love that song and others sung by them.

  6. I love, love, love the Everly Brothers, this is one of my fave songs :)

  7. This was music from a seemingly more innocent time when romance in song was expressed as more of an ideal than a physical act.


  8. Oh gosh, is that a blast from the past! ;-D
