The 1951 Rolling Review Show … # 2
We all have a musical backdrop to our lives which extends from the cradle to the grave. The great pianist, composer and conductor Alberto Semprini used to host a light music programme on BBC radio called Semprini Seranade. He always introduced his musical selection with the words: “Old ones, new ones, loved ones, neglected ones”.
This then is the The Rolling 51 Review Show which each week features a piece of music I have enjoyed at some time in my life. I hope you enjoy them as well. Let me know and please feel free to Reblog.
The Monkees (Daydream Believer)￼
This was a hit for The Monkees in 1967, reaching # 1 on America’s Billboard Hot 100 and # 5 in the UK Singles Chart. It was written by singer-songwriter John Stewart. I first heard it on The Monkees TV show. Great melody. Great lyrics.
