I'm looking for an song from around 2h16s on the YouTube compilation Oldies playing in another room but you are in a dream (crackling vinyl w/ birds, cars) 3 HOURS ASMR. I have searched the Internet Archives plus a number of lyric-based online resources, but have not been able to locate it. I'm most interested in finding the artist to explore other related work.

Beginning of song is here

Beginning of lyrics are here

Here are the lyrics as best I can make out:

It was just a dream
Such a lovely dream
What a lovely dream of you dear

You were in my arms
Oh what lovely charms
It was heavenly for me dear

Ah then came the dawn to take you
In reality I love you

I would gladly spend all my life in dreams
For another dream of you

The song is in waltz time (3/4) and is probably from the 20s or 30s. It features a banjo, a violin and a reed instrument.

I have been looking everywhere, but have not found this song. Can anyone point me to an archive somewhere? Thanks in advance!

    I'm not able to understand the lyrics. Can you add a relevant sample of them to your question? Can you identify a recurring sentence that could be the title?

    Related question: different song from the same video. What's the name of this beautiful song from the 20's/30's?

  • Based on the answered question referenced by Aaron, it looks like the Internet Archive would be a good place to look --it's likely the original video was created from it. Jun 11 at 14:34

    I agree with xhienne! What was the reason for closing????? Questions seeking to identify a song/sample/artist/etc: a) need enough objective detail to be answerable; CHECK b) show evidence of effort and research; CHECK c) if a link to a sound file is included, also add a description of the song. CHECK Please add as much detail as possible. CHECK.

The song you are looking for is "Just a Dream" by Milton Brown and His Brownies.

You can listen to it on the Internet Archive (the recording is from the Decca #5317 78 rpm disc that was released in 1935).

  • Thank you xhienne!!! I have updated the lyrics above to be more accurate for future searches.

  • @dxndude That's very kind of you to update the lyrics, this may indeed be useful to others. As a side note, you may want to accept this answer if you think this is the right song (to me it seems so, but this is really difficult to tell for sure that this is exactly the same version, since it is heavily edited in the video; what I gave you here is the original song written by Milton Brown)
