Any Dream Will Do

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”

- Eleanor Roosevelt
(11 Oct 1884 - 07 Nov 1962)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

    I myself have always been a great believer in dreams - day dreams, night dreams - any dreams at all.  Ya gotta have a dream, right??

BONUS #2 - - Any Dream Will Do - Donny Osmond


"Any Dream Will Do" is a popular song written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice for the 1968 musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. It is generally the beginning and the concluding song of the musical, sung by the title character of Joseph.

It has been sung by numerous performers both on stage and on record including Jason Donovan, John Barrowman, Donny Osmond, Andy Gibb, Phillip Schofield, Darren Day, Lee Mead, Connie Talbot and Toy Dolls. Joe Cuddy's version was a number one hit in Ireland in 1974. The song was voted Broadway Song of the Year in 1981 and won an Ivor Novello Award in 1991.[1]

The song was performed by Jason Donovan, Donny Osmond and Lee Mead at the Concert for Diana on 1 July 2007.

It was notably parodied by Irish radio personality Mario Rosenstock in 2005 as "José and his Amazing Technicolor Overcoat", a send-up of then-Chelsea F.C. manager José Mourinho. It was also parodied by a musical duo Amateur Transplants in their first album Fitness to Practice as "Mr Burton"...

Any Dream Will Do

Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber (b. 22 Mar 1948) and Tim Rice (b. 10 Nov 1944)
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, 1968


I closed my eyes, drew back the curtain
To see for certain what I thought I knew
Far far away, someone was weeping
But the world was sleeping
Any dream will do

Joseph & Children

I wore my coat, with golden lining
Bright colours shining, wonderful and new
And in the east, the dawn was breaking
And the world was waking
Any dream will do


A crash of drums, a flash of light
My golden coat flew out of sight
The colours faded into darkness
I was left alone

Joseph & Children

May I return to the beginning
The light is dimming, and the dream is too
The world and I, we are still waiting
Still hesitating
Any dream will do

A crash of drums, a flash of light
My golden coat flew out of sight
The colours faded into darkness
I was left alone

Joseph & Children

May I return to the beginning
The light is dimming, and the dream is too
The world and I, we are still waiting
Still hesitating
Any dream will do
