01/08/14 - NNHS Newsletter - Dream Lover

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, 

   This Newsletter theme just popped into my mind, and surprisingly it appears we have never used it.

BONUS - - Dream Lover - Bobby Darin on the Ed Sullivan Show, 1959


"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).

If you had purchased $1,000 of AIG stock one year ago, you would have $42 left. With Lehman, you would have $6.60 left. With Fannie or Freddie, you would have less than $5 left.

But if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drunk all of the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling refund, you would have had $214.

Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle. Its called the 401-Keg

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
