“I think we dream so we don't have to be apart so long.
If we're in each other's dreams, we can play together all night.”


- Bill Watterson
(b. 05 July 1958)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   Here's a great ol' Golden Oldie for you on this frozen, snowy Sunday!

BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Fpd_ggGiDE - Dream Lover - Bobby Darin on the Ed Sullivan Show, 1959


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dream_Lover:

"Dream Lover" is a song written and recorded by Bobby Darin on March 5, 1959. It was produced by Ahmet Ertegun and Jerry Wexler and engineered by Tom Dowd. It is considered a soulful rock song. The song became a multi-million seller, reaching #2 in US charts and was #1 in UK for three weeks during July 1959.[1] It was released as a single on Atco Records in 1959. In addition to Darin's vocal, the song features Neil Sedaka on piano[2]. A picture sleeve was also issued for this record.

The song is featured in the movie "Hot Shots!" starring Charlie Sheen. It is played during a scene in which Sheen's character performs several stunts on a motorcycle, trying to impress a girl. Darin's recording is also played, in full, during the end credits.

The song was also used in Michael Apted's movie "Stardust" (1974) and Barry Levinson's debut film "Diner" (1982).

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 01/07/15:

- Joseph B. Wirthlin

From Tazewell Whitley ('65) of VA - 01/04/17:

This is something that I found about 45 years ago and have always keep in mind...

"Fight one more round. When your feet are so tired that you have to shuffle back to the center of the ring, fight one more round. When your arms are so tired that you can hardly lift your hands to come on guard, fight one more round. When your nose is bleeding and your eyes are black and you are so tired that you wish your opponent would crack you one on the jaw and put you to sleep, fight one more round -- remembering that the man who fights one more round is never whipped."

- James J. Corbett

   EXCELLENT! Thank you so much, Tazewell!

Dream Lover

Written and recorded by Bobby Darin (14 May 1936 - 20 Dec 1973), 1959
 


Every night I hope and pray
A dream lover will come my way
A girl to hold in my arms
And know the magic of her charms
'Cause I want (yeah-yeah yeah) a girl (yeah-yeah yeah)
To call (yeah-yeah yeah) my own (yeah-yeah)
I want a dream lover so I don't have to dream alone

Dream lover, where are you
With a love, oh, so true?
And a hand that can hold,
To feel you near as I grow old?
'Cause I want (yeah-yeah yeah) a girl (yeah-yeah yeah)
To call (yeah-yeah yeah) my own (yeah-yeah)
I want a dream lover so I don't have to dream alone

Someday, I don't know how,
I hope she'll hear my plea
Some way, I don't know how,
She'll bring her love to me

Dream lover, until then,
I'll go to sleep and dream again
That's the only thing to do,
Till all my lover's dreams come true
'Cause I want (yeah-yeah yeah) a girl (yeah-yeah yeah)
To call (yeah-yeah yeah) my own (yeah-yeah)
I want a dream lover so I don't have to dream alone

Dream lover, until then,
I'll go to sleep and dream again
That's the only thing to do,
Till all my lover's dreams come true
'Cause I want (yeah-yeah yeah) a girl (yeah-yeah yeah)
To call (yeah-yeah yeah) my own (yeah-yeah)
I want a dream lover so I don't have to dream alone

Please don't make me dream alone
I beg you don't make me dream alone
No, I don't wanna dream
