"Dream Lover"

OK, back to the 50's: This classic was written and recorded by Bobby Darin (koolest kat ever to walk the face of the earth!) in '59 with Neil Sedaka on piano. Possibly his most soulful rock ballad. Peaked at #2 in the U.S. and at #1 in the UK. Covered by, among others, Dion and The Belmonts, Glen Cambell/Tanya Tucker in '80, Ricky Nelson in '86 and The Manhattan Transfer.

Yesterday's answer: "Don' Worry, Baby". I remember buying Shut Down Vol. 2 (Mono) in '64 for $3.77! GREAT album! "Fun, Fun, Fun", "The Warmth Of The Sun", "Why Do Fools Fall In Love" AND a cover of "Louie, Louie" where you could actually understand the words!
