This Dreaming of You classic old movies song was actually titled "All I Do is Dream of You," one of the really cute movie soundtrack songs from the 1952 movie "Singin' in the Rain."
I personally don't believe the magic of musicals during the golden age of Hollywood will ever be reproduced or challenged. These artists were just so talented.
They were not only actors but dancers and singers. And they were accomplished in all three.
Debbie Reynolds was 19 when this movie was made. Judy Garland was 16 when she starred in "The Wizard of Oz." I kinda miss the days when teen stars were actually talented.
And isn't it amazing that such a beautiful work of art like Gene Kelly's "Singin' in the Rain" dance routine and this number can be captured and presented for only few minutes each...and then make you want to watch it for hours?
This movie contains some of my favorite movie soundtrack songs and certainly, in my opinion, should fall under the "all time greatest movie songs" category.
I believe Gene Kelly's "Singin' in the Rain" is arguably one of the finest choreographed and totally appropriate pieces of dance in the entire history of musical theater. Gene Kelly was never better than in what I believe has become a signature masterpiece of popular entertainment.
Too bad there aren't any of these feel good movies anymore. Jean Hagen is brilliantly funny as Lena Lamont and is there any movie delight quite so exquisite as that of watching Debbie Reynolds jump out of a cake and sing "All I Do Is Dream of You"? Or of watching her sing “Good Morning” with Gene Kelly and Donald O'Conner?
Kathy Selden (Debbie Reynolds) and a bunch of chorus girls put on this song to entertain the guests at a Hollywood party that Don (Gene Kelly) happens to be attending.
Enjoy this really cute song, "All I Do Is Dream of You," from the 1952 movie musical "Singin' in the Rain."
Dreaming of You Classic Old Movies
Music written by Nacio Herb Brown
Lyrics by Arthur Freed
Published in 1934
All I do is dream of you
The whole night through
With the dawn, I still go on
And dream of you
You're every thought
You're every song I ever sing
Summer, winter, autumn and spring.
And were there more
Than twenty-four hours a day
They'd be spent in sweet content
When skies are gray
When skies are blue
Morning, noon and nighttime too
All I do the whole day through
Is dream of you
It's cat's meow!
All I do the whole day through
Is dream of you!
