Dream a Little Dream

United States
September 22, 2007 7:22am CST
Here is a recording on SingSnap that I did this morning. It is in my morning voice so I am still a little cracky. Guess I should have waited until my allergies had subsided and I had time to wake up. I have always loved Mama Cass and her version of Dream a Little Dream. Here is my rendition: http://www.singsnap.com/snap/watchandlisten/play/abec8f7a

Absolutely...you know your singing has been playing through my head all day. Here it is , how many hours later..and I can still hear it. The funny thing is that I had another ear worm before this that was also a Cass Elliott song..I don't remember the name..I can give you some words..maybe you can do it next. I don't feel altar bound and starry eyed. I just feel a deep contentment deep inside, Holding you at night Just seems kind of natural and right And it is not hard to see that it isn't half of what is gonna turn out to be And it getting better, growing stronger.... ANd I lose it after that.

Itty appears to love to join in on the fun. She joined me when I was practicing another tune.

You have nothing to be ashamed of as far as the quality of your voice goes, Elusive! And, that just happens to be one of my favorite songs. You did a beautiful job with it. I was wondering if you ever sing at public functions? You really have a nice, strong voice.(:

I do not sing in public. My daughter does. She has performed on several occasions. I can't wait to get her on the site.

I love doing Karaoke, but am a bit shy about standing in front of a crowd. This is a perfect way to do it.

Go, go, go! You have a nice voice, dear ... and Itty does a lovely throaty backing ... reminds me of that piano player who always hummed along to his playing (what was his name?) Now, if my agency wasn't so full to overflowing, already (my life!) we could maybe talk about a little act (with the cat ... must have the cat!)

Hi ElusiveButterfly, Wow, what a nice surprise. You've got a lovely voice, and your kitty ... too cute! I really do love the 'oldies,' and have always loved The Mamas and Papas. I hope you're able to get your daughter to do that duet with you. I've never heard of this site, but I'm going to let my daughter know about it, as she loves to sing. Thanks.

Ceece has quite a voice. I know she would love doing this. I am sure I can get her to do a duet with me too.

Thank you for sharing it was VERY good I really enoyed it. I wish I could sing that well. I imagine your clients love to hear you sing although they would probably not hear your kitty cat "harmonizing" in the background LOL.

I wish that the clients would play music when I am in their homes. Many do not play music nor have the television on. I would probably break out in song if they did.

I am listening to your recording right now. You have a very lovely voice. You should try out for one of those singing shows like American Idol. Very nice song as well that you sang. I would not dare to record my voice and publish it. :-) Glad that you enjoy singing.

Hi Ken. Glad to see you drop by! You don't have to record your voice and play it for the world to hear. You can practice and if you like the way it sounds you can save it for others to hear.

I've always liked this song, now I've got a new singer to listen to, Or should I say two singers, including the cat. Go for it, with a wee bit of training you could have a future singing.

I tried another song later on and Itty joined me again. I think it is her second nature.

Thank you so much for your comments. I was just thinking about this site just the other day. I was hoping to get my daughter to do a duet with me. Maybe one day I will succeed in getting her here to do it!

I am not the performer in my family. My daughter is hoping to get a band started up so she can promote her talent.
