L. C. ANDERSON HIGH SCHOOL TRIBUTE 4: 1959 YELLOWJACKET YEARBOOK: FACULTY- Bobby Darin - The Browns

"Dream Lover" is a song written by Bobby Darin and recorded by him on April 6, 1959. Darin decided to stretch out some chord changes he found on the piano and add strings and voices.[1] The song was produced by Ahmet Ertegun and Jerry Wexler and engineered by Tom Dowd. It was released as a single on Atco Records in the U.S. in 1959. It became a multi-million seller, reaching No.2 on the U.S. charts for a week and No.4 on the R&B charts.[2] "Dream Lover" was kept from the No.1 spot by "The Battle of New Orleans" by Johnny Horton. It did however reach No.1 in the U.K. for four weeks during June and July 1959.[3] In addition to Darin's vocal, the song features Neil Sedaka on piano.[4] A picture sleeve, featuring a portrait of Darin, was also issued for this record in the U.S.
