My Dreams Are Getting Better All the Time
“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Today's theme song was one of the #1 hits from 1945 - and you know what a sucker I am for All Things 40's!
BONUS #1 - My Dreams Are Getting Better All the Time - Doris Day
BONUS #2 - My Dreams Are Getting Better All the Time - Perry Como
|"My Dreams Are Getting Better All the Time" is a
The Les Brown/Doris Day recording was released by Columbia Records as catalog number 36779. The record first reached the Billboard magazine charts on March 15, 1945 and lasted 12 weeks on the chart, peaking at #1. Although this record was made after the big Brown/Day hit,"Sentimental Journey," it actually hit the charts earlier...
|"If ever this was proof that a song had the capacity to crawl in your head and stay there -- invited or not -- I would nominate this one. Though it did reach number one in 1945, it's rarely heard these days, in any form -- even on the oldies radio stations. I stumbled across it while looking for other songs, and happened to have it playing while I continued my search. I'll be doggoned if the melody didn't set up residence in my head."|
