Du är här

Musik och cancer

Hans-Johnny om musik och cancer.

Till min älskade hustru Annika Hedström , min allra bästa vän och min livskamrat. 

Jag önskar att jag kunde ta bort en del av din smärta så att du får uppleva en midsommar till med alla som du älskar och som älskar dig. Du har alltid ställt upp för alla och nu är det vår tur att ställa upp för dig. Jag vet inte hur det ska gå till men på något sätt måste den hemska sjukdomen du drabbats av besegras. 

 Jag är inte så bra på att beskriva mina känslor för dig med ord. Så det får bli med den här låten.

Jag älskar dig Annika Hedström.

Till min fru som för exakt ett år sen åkte in på sjukhus med njursvikt som orsakades av den där jävla cancern. 

Hon gick bort den 8/6.

Annika jag hoppas att du hör den här låten var än du är.

Här kommer låten

Jag älskar dig och det kommer jag alltid att göra.

Din Hans-Johnny

 About The Everly Brothers - All I Have To Do Is Dream (1958)

The 1950s was a transformative decade in music, witnessing the rise of rock 'n' roll, rhythm and blues, and the continuation of country music's influence. Amidst these diverse genres, two young brothers emerged with a sound that would meld them all together in perfect harmony: The Everly Brothers. With their harmonious voices, they delivered a song that would become an anthem for lovers everywhere – "All I Have To Do Is Dream.”

Don and Phil Everly, hailing from Kentucky, had a unique ability to blend their voices in such a way that the resulting harmony was almost ethereal. Their close-knit bond as siblings translated into their music, creating an intimate and heartfelt sound that was unparalleled in its time.

"All I Have To Do Is Dream" is a testament to their talent. The song is a soft, melodic ballad that speaks to the heart's deepest desires. Its gentle guitar strums and subtle instrumentation lay the foundation for the brothers' angelic harmonies. The lyrics, simple yet profound, express a longing for a loved one. The refrain, "Whenever I want you, all I have to do is dream," encapsulates the song's essence – the idea that even in separation, one can find solace in dreams.

The song's beauty lies not just in its melody but also in its lyrical depth. It touches upon the universal theme of love and longing, and the comforting notion that dreams can bridge the gap between reality and desire. The Everly Brothers' delivery of the song is filled with genuine emotion, making listeners feel every word, every note, and every sentiment.

When "All I Have To Do Is Dream" was released, it was met with widespread acclaim. It resonated with people from all walks of life, transcending age, culture, and geography. The song climbed the charts, becoming a staple on radio stations and jukeboxes, and further solidifying The Everly Brothers' status as musical legends.

Beyond its commercial success, the song has left an indelible mark on popular culture. It has been covered by numerous artists across different genres, each bringing their unique interpretation to it. Yet, the original version by The Everly Brothers remains unmatched in its purity and emotion.

Looking back, "All I Have To Do Is Dream" is more than just a song from the 1950s. It's a timeless classic that speaks to the soul. 

The Everly Brothers, with their impeccable harmonies and genuine emotion, captured the essence of love in its purest form. The song stands as a testament to their musical genius and remains a beloved anthem for dreamers everywhere. Through this track, The Everly Brothers have shown that love, in all its forms, is eternal, and sometimes, all we need to do is dream to feel it.
