In dreams you're mine all of the time ...

"He was now singing his compositions in three or four octaves that made you want to drive your car over a cliff. He sang like a professional criminal... His voice could jar a corpse, always leave you muttering to yourself something like, 'Man, I don't believe it'"

Bob Dylan

When I read this line in Dylan's Chronicles I underlined it with my pencil...

I remembered Roy's voice ..

I could drive my car over a cliff while this song is playing in the radio...

Roy said this song came to him while sleeping, he dreamed that the radio was announcing a new Elvis song .. then he woke up and wrote it..

The images in the video are from David Lynch's movie Blue Velvet, which I hadn't seen yet..

The producer was Dino de Laurentiis who passed away last week..

Little homage here to all of them..

In Dreams

A candy-colored clown they call the Sandman
Tiptoes to my room every night
Just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper
"Go to sleep, everything is all right"

I close my eyes, then I drift away
Into the magic night, I softly say
A silent prayer like dreamers do
Then I fall asleep to dream my dreams of you

In dreams I walk with you
In dreams I talk to you
In dreams you're mine all of the time
We're together in dreams, in dreams

But just before the dawn
I awake and find you gone
I can't help it, I can't help it, if I cry
I remember that you said goodbye

It's too bad that all these things
Can only happen in my dreams
Only in dreams
In beautiful dreams


  1. roy, roy, roy. i miss him. when i first saw him on tv i was making fun of him. i was ignorant and stupid. i know better now. he's got this one of a kind voice and when i hear it, i always knew its him, no one else. i know what you mean about drivin the car over a cliff haha. a great homage to them all. nice post. and the video's awesome!

  2. i wana follow this blog. how can i do that? i don't see any "follow" that i can click to...

  3. hey.. every verse of the song has a different melody and every next one he is singing higher until the last one... which is so epic..
