Sweets and love – always a good combination. That too must have been on the mind of The Drifters, when composing this beautiful song in 1961. I guess, I will be writing a love song about waffles some day.
„And if you needed a dream to keep you smiling
I’ll tell the sandman you were blue
And I’d ask him to keep that sand a-piling
Till your dreams would come true.“
There is also a famous cover version of the song by „The Searchers“, that was even more successful on the billboards than the original version by „The Drifters“. If it’s a good song there has to be at least two versions as we already know.
