Dreaming of You
“Dreams can disappear - poof, just like that. Where do those
dreams go? Are they floating out there
with no place to land - songs not sung, dances not danced, all those dreams that will never come true?”
- Marjorie Klein, Test Pattern, 2000, p. 204
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Nothing like sad ol' love songs.....
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJMQjukSJFM - Dreaming of You - Selena, 1995
|"Dreaming of You" is the name of a
love song written by
Franne Golde and
Snow. It was Selena's biggest single, peaking at #21 on the
Billboard Hot 100. The song was released at the end of the first
quarter of 1995, after Selena's murder. It appeared on
the album of the same name, which was released posthumously.
Robert Johnson of Planet Music, a record chain in Houston, told New York Times that people in Houston were buying copies of the album Dreaming of You because of the single "Dreaming of You". 15 years after her death, Teresa Jusino of Popmatters wrote: "Even the most sheltered English-speaking music fan might not know Selena's name, but if you mention her hit singles, "Dreaming of You", or "I Could Fall in Love," they'll likely respond with 'I remember that song!', or 'I love that one!'."
Peter Watrous of The New York Times wrote: "It's not that she didn't sing well in English; she spoke English substantially better than she did Spanish. It's that the English song writers didn't step up to the bar with their best material. The music is faceless commerce. That she sings it so well on the album suggests that she had a good chance of success, working lush ballads in an anonymous pop style that Disney has mastered..."
