Only In My Dreams

When I was growing up on Long Island, there was a summer or two where Debbie Gibson was the coolest. She was a Long Island girl, just like me, only she had a recording studio in her garage, she wrote her own songs, and…the hat speaks for itself. One day in my bedroom I recorded this version of her breakout hit, which still gives me butterflies when I hear it. (her version, not mine)

Only In My Dreams

it's all about the slap bass

That is quite a fancy downloading site….you are more aware of your mac’s capabilities than I.

I remember those summers. We must be the same age. I was in Connecticut though. I was even in her DGIF fan club, haha… I still have all the stuff from it packed away somewhere. Ohmygod I’ve never confessed that dark little secret to anybody.

Anyway – nice job on the cover! Especially where it breaks down at 2:24, very cool.

Definitely do! Did you demo ‘Lost in Your Eyes?’ That’s a perennial favorite. I just heard she’s doing a concert with Rick Astley in Canada in a couple months. Viva la 80s!
