Beautiful Dreamer - revisited


Here are several musical versions of the poem "Beautiful Dreamer," by Stephen Foster which I have previously posted.





I have to say that number 4 is my favorite. The Beatles definitely put a different spin on it. Anyway... which one do you guys like?


  1. Can't stand #1 and (especially) #3. I loved the Beatles one! Man, I just love those guys!
    But I also really like the poem as a poem and not as song lyrics. It's different that way. It's so pretty and cool when you are just reading it.

    Anyway, I like that poem, and the Beatles rock. You betcha. Bye.

  2. Yes, I agree with you, Julius Caesar!

    It's such a beautiful piece of poetry.

  3. I love #3 !!!!!!!!!!!! I agree with J.C. about it as a poem!!

  4. I liked numbers 1 and 4. The second one bugged me.

  5. I agree with you about the 2nd one, Dewhurst. H.R.H Anne

  6. You could have embedded the videos. Do you know how to do that?

  7. Well, I believe it is placing the videos onto this site so we can just click, "play" instead of having to click the link and go from there...
    But as for actually doing it, I can't help you. I don't know how :(

  8. I am re-listening to the Beatles one. I just love the "aaaaahhh"s in the backround :D

  9. Hey guys, I'm going to Thomas Aquinas for two weeks, so I'm gonna take a little break from the blog. The person after me can go ahead and post.

  10. What do you mean you are going to Thomas Aquinas? The college or what...
    Just wondering.

  11. I guess that means I post next,I'll get right on it.
