FOWC with Fandango — Dreamer

This song peaked in 1958, the year I turned 11. But that was not the end of it because many other people sang it and for reasons someone can probably explain, the words have had a strange way of sticking in your head.

This song has gotten stuck in my ears regularly over the years … and I’m pretty sure I’m not alone.

    1. There are lots of versions of the Everly Brothers performing this on the Internet. In later years, they played it much more slowly, almost like a lullaby. I like this — the original version — at the faster speed better.

      And yes, it really gets stuck in your ear 😀


  1. It gets played at work all the time. There was also a version of them doing this on the 70’s concert show Musik Laden that VH-1 Classic used to have in their regular video rotation. I think it’s definitely their best known song even today…


    1. They did later versions of it that were very slow. Same guys, same song, but a very different sound. I still like this earlier version. Yes, a lot of singers still do this one. It has become a classic … rare for “pop singers” of their ilk.
