|"I Wouldn't Dream of It" (May 2005)|
Q: JEFF REEB (Memphis, TN): You were my Dad's absolute favorite! I say "were" because he died in 1992 or you still would be. My Dad had most, if not all, your LP's, so I grew up on a steady diet of Teresa Brewer. Even though I am a committed '60's and '70's rocker, I have one of your greatest hits albums in my collection. On one of your albums you cut a song that I liked, even above your hits. I can't remember the name of the song, but the lyrics started out "He asked me if he could hold my hand, and I shyly said, "I wouldn't dream of it." But then I felt his hand touch mine, now I dream of it, now I dream of it all the time." It's 2005 and I'm remembering this from about 1964 or so. What was the name of the song, what album is it on and is it still in print? You brought our family a great deal of joy and I wanted you to know how much you meant to my Father.
A: TERESA: "That's an easy one. You mentioned the title of the song in the lyrics that you quoted: It's 'I Wouldn't Dream of It,' which I recorded for the Philips label in 1963, I believe. It was never released as a single. Maybe it should've been because it had a folk-song feel to it and folk music was really popular at the time. It was released only on an album but I don't remember which one. It was a very, very pretty song, one that I haven't thought about in years!"
