18 May 2021 - Everly Brothers - All I Have To Do Is Dream

This week has a theme.

It is "Songs That Are So Good They Give Tony Chills" Week,

We start with this 1958 single by the Everly Brothers.  Written by famed country songwriter Boudleaux Bryant, who wrote a lot of Everly Brothers hit songs, it is a beautiful song of longing for the one you love.  The harmonies of the brothers absolutely make the hairs on my arm stand on end.  

The song was so good, it topped the pop charts for five weeks in 1958 AND returned to the charts in 1961.  It also topped the R&B AND Country charts.  Literally everyone loved this soulful, mournful song.
