The song of the day for Saturday, April 20, 2019, is “Baby, Dream Your Dream.”
About This Song
“Baby, Dream Your Dream” was one of the hit songs from the very successful Cy Coleman – Dorothy Fields 1966 musical Sweet Charity, directed by Bob Fosse and starring Gwen Verdon along with the book by Neil Simon. “Baby, Dream Your Dream” was sung by Helen Gallagher and Thelma Oliver.
About This Version
Tony Bennett recorded “Baby, Dream Your Dream” in December 1965; it was released as single in 1966 to coincide with the Broadway premiere of Sweet Charity in January 1966. Johnny Mandel did the arrangement, which I really love. The recording was also used on Bennett’s 1967 album For Once In My Life.
