Street of Dreams

Album: not on an album (1932)

Songfacts®:

  • Written in 4/4 time with words by Sam M. Lewis and music by Victor Young, this downtempo, pedestrian and undreamlike song has nothing in common with the Rainbow ballad of half a century later. An early version was recorded on the Victor label by Russ Columbo and his Orchestra - with him on vocals. Later recordings were made by both Bing Crosby and Ella Fitzgerald - the latter on Verve Records in 1962. >>
