Playlist for Sunday, May 3, 2015: Just Dreamy!

You may notice by perusing the playlist that YES, this is a show with a theme!  And that theme is DREAM!  Have a dream, dream a little dream, I could use a dream, I guess I'll have to dream...you name it, it's dreamy.  This Dream Land of a show pulls from Broadway musicals, movie musicals, and standards old and new. A couple of them may be soporific enough to induce actual dreaming...but try to stay awake, okay? 

Favorites?  "I Dreamt I Dwelt In Marble Halls"...from (gulp) 1843, when dinosaurs roamed the earth. It's actually from an opera, The Bohemian Girl, and it has found its way into soundtracks, literature, and covers by Joan Sutherland, Enya, Celtic Women and more...but I know it from a little movie called "An Apartment for Peggy" with Jeanne Crain.  Wonderful and old and sappy, so we're doing it!

I also love Liza and "You Stepped Out Of A Dream", which was recorded live in 1996, which is snazzy and sleazy and other "s" adjectives.  "I'll Never Have to Dream Again" with Connie Boswell (after she jettisoned her sisters, or they jettisoned her, depending on the rags you read)....and two Glenn Miller offerings, "I Guess I'll Have to Dream the Rest" and "As Long as I'm Dreaming."

Standard-wise, we have Doris and Tony, Frank and Dean...a little Peggy, a little Bobby...and all with one thing in mind: Sweet Dreams!
