Dream a Little Dream

Not quite sure who Terry Hill is... nor am I familiar with Marijne, singer of a band called Salad(?). But together they managed to put together one of the best versions of the oft-covered Dream a Little Dream. It's taken from the 1995 War Child charity album called "Help: A Charity Project for the Children of Bosnia," a project I think spearheaded by Krist Novoselic (the semi-anonymous third member of Nirvana).

Terry Hill & Marijne - Dream a Little Dream

According to a brief wikipedia entry, this song was originally written in 1931 by Fabian Andre and Wilbur Schwandt. The most well-known cover was by Mama Cass of The Mamas & The Papas, though there are numerous other covers that I can't even be bothered to mention. Just listen to Terry & Marijne.

Thanks for fixing the Oingo Boingo tunes. Dream A Little Dream has the same problem of cutting off abruptly.

Try again... but that's the last fix!
