Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong – Dream a Little Dream of Me

Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong recorded “Dream a Little Dream of Me” on their 1950 album Cheek to Cheek. This song was a hit, and it is the most widely known recording of this standard. Its lyrics are very simple and a bit corny, but it is beautiful and touching. It is a good example of the style of jazz and standards that the duo sang.

The song was also covered by the Mamas and the Papas, with their version reaching #5 in Europe. It was also recorded by the Mills Brothers, Sylvie Vartan, Henry Mancini, The Beautiful South, Anne Murray, Erasure, Michael Buble, and Italian vocal group Blue Penguin (see below: List of recorded versions). In Jim Henson’s Muppet*Vision 3D, Miss Piggy sings a lullaby to her great-granddaughter Allie, a parody of the Mama Cass version.

Old jazz standards make great lullabies because they were written in more innocent times, and the melodies are sophisticated enough to make up for any slightly corny or overly sentimental lyrics. They are also easier to sing, because most people don’t have Ella Fitzgerald’s voice, but they are often sung with a great deal of earnestness.

Despite its simple words, this song has a powerful, melancholy feel that reflects the sadness of the depression and the death of a loved one. This song is the perfect lullaby for children, and it will help them to sleep peacefully. ” Sweet dreams till the sunbeams find you/Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you.ella fitzgerald dream a little dream of me
