Dream Lover

Dream Lover by Bobby Darin was a UK number 1 hit on Friday, July 3, 1959 spending 4 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Darin wrote this song, which is about a guy who wishes and prays for the girl of his dreams to come to him so that he doesn't have to dream any more - or as he puts it in his grammatically incorrect but lyrically - no more. Darin wasn't so sure of the song when he demoed it for his bosses at Atlantic Records, but it became a huge hit and earned him more creative control as a songwriter and artist. Darin found his dream lover a year after this song was released when he married the actress Sandra Dee, a union that would last until 1967. Darin performed this on his first Ed Sullivan Show appearance on May 31, 1959. He made five more appearances on the show.
