Tony Bennett’s ballad version of “For Once in My Life” was a Top 10 hit one year before Stevie Wonder made it a #2 pop smash. Released on Columbia Records in 1967, the album of the same name also featured the lovely Cy Coleman & Dorothy Fields song, “Baby Dream Your Dream” from the hit musical Sweet Charity.
This is the American Dream, served up 1960′s style with a cherry on top. A time when apparently the bank made a “friendly loan”. Wow, far out.
Dream we sign the lease, leave a small deposit.

We’ll ask the local jet set, to dine on our dinette set.
