100 year old Love Songs for Modern Lovers
"Songs for Dreamy Lovers" music album set to charm the hearts of brides.
By: David Mulliss
After recording over 40 famous classical compositions of composers like Bach, Beethoven and Chopin in contemporary styles of rock, jazz and hip hop, David Mulliss has gone on to produce his third vocal album entitled "Songs for Dreamy Lovers".
The artist has recreated perennial wedding and love songs that have given joy to young-at-heart lovers for over a century. Songs include "Meet Me Tonight in Dreamland" which is said to be one of the most famous popular songs of the twentieth century. Written in 1909, the song has been recorded by many musical artists including Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney and Judy Garland.
American composer Jerome Kern is featured on this album too. In his lifetime, Jerome Kern wrote more than 700 songs including many jazz standards. His song "Look for the Silver Lining" appears on this album as a bossa nova, which was a genre that didn't exist when the song was written in 1919.
Most people are familiar with the song title "Let Me Call You Sweetheart" even if they haven't heard the recordings of this song by Pat Boone or Patti Page. This version is performed as a modern country waltz for contemporary listeners. Another waltz performed as modern country is "You Belong to Me" which the American composer Victor Herbert wrote the music for in 1916.
Track seven of the album gives us Guy d'Hardelot's song "Because" originally written in French in 1902. This track is performed in a rock/orchestral crossover style which sets it apart from the bulk of recordings of other artists made by Andrea Bocelli, Plácido Domingo, Nelson Eddy, Mahalia Jackson and even The Three Tenors.
The "Moonlight Serenade: Intermezzo" was written in 1905 and unrelated to Glenn Miller's similarly entitled "Moonlight Serenade" song. This recording of "Intermezzo"
The oldest song on this album is "I Love You Truly" and has been a popular wedding song since it was first published in 1901. This recording is performed as a modern rockin' country ballad – mostly because electric guitars didn't exist 100 years ago!
There are many more amazing love songs on this album including "Somebody's Sweetheart I Want To Be" which was written in 1905.
"Songs for Dreamy Lovers" was released on 1 June 2019 and is available on Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music and other online music stores.
