November 13, 2013

One of the great ballads of the rock and roll era reached the top of the charts during May of 1958. “All I Have To Do Is Dream” was the second of three number one songs for The Everly Brothers during 1958.

Felice (Lyrics) and Boudleaux (Music) Bryant were a husband and wife songwriting team. They had their first hit in 1949 with “Country Boy” by Little Jimmy Dickens but it was as writers for the Everly Brothers that they produced dozens of¬†songs that sold tens-of-millions of records. “All I Have To Do Is Dream” was possibly their best known composition.
