I had the craziest dream
Harry James Orchestra
Written by: Harry Warren and Mack Gordon
#1 week of February 13, 1943 through week of February 20, 1943
In a dream the strangest and the oddest things appear
And what insane and silly things we do.
Here is what I see before me, vividly and clear:
As I recall it, you were in it, too.
I had the craziest dream last night, yes I did.
I never dreamt it could be
Yet there you were, in love with me.
I found your lips close to mine so I kissed you
And you didn't mind it at all.
When I'm awake such abreak never happens.
How long can a gal go on dreaming?
If there's a chance that you care
Then, please, say you do, Baby.
Say it and make my craziest dream come true.
I Had The Craziest Dream (Gordon-Warren) by Harry James & his Orchestra, vocal by Helen Forrest (CD audio source)
Among the most memorable of the Harry James recordings (a #1 best-seller), “I Had The Craziest Dream” was also the title of Helen Forrest’s 1982 autobiography. She and the James band performed the song in the film “Springtime In The Rockies.”
