“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 again.

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).

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

“Sometimes the greatest love is not found in the dramatic scenes that poets and writers immortalize. Often, the greatest manifestations of love are the simple acts of kindness and caring we extend to those we meet along the path of life.”

    From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 01/04/16 - "TIME TO LAUGH!!":

A 5-year-old boy went to visit his grandmother one day. Playing with his toys in her bedroom while grandma was dusting, he looked up and said, “Grandma, how come you don’t have a boyfriend now that Grandpa went to heaven?”

Grandma replied, “Honey, my TV is my boyfriend. I can sit in my bedroom and watch it all day long. The religious programs make me feel good and the comedies make me laugh. I’m happy with my TV as my boyfriend.”

Grandma turned on the TV, and the reception was terrible. She started adjusting the knobs, trying to get the picture in focus. Frustrated, she started hitting the backside of the TV hoping to fix the problem.

The little boy heard the doorbell ring, so he hurried to open the door, and there stood grandma’s minister.

The minister said, “Hello, Son, is your grandma home?”

The little boy replied, “Yeah, she’s in the bedroom bangin’ her boyfriend.”

The minister fainted...

     Thanks, Joyce, you naughty baby!

From My Friend, Holly, of NC - 01/07/16:

From My Friend, Felicia, of WA - 01/07/16:

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
