The Singers and Songs

  • Santo and Johnny
    Sleep Walk
    “an instrumental duo from Brooklyn”
  • Louis Jordan And His Tympany 5
    A Man's Best Friend Is a Bed
  • Sleeping in the Ground
    “You know, every shut-eye ain't sleep. Sometimes you're sleeping in the ground, taking a dirt nap, saying the big good bye.”
  • Somebody's Been Sleeping
  • Berna-Dean
    I Walk In My Sleep
    “Here's a woman who sure doesn't sound like she sleeps alone.”
  • Two Sleepy People
    “This song is featured in the Bob Hope movie, Thanks For The Memory, and also this week on Theme Time Radio Hour.”
  • I Heard You Crying In Your Sleep
    “I was looking through my records the other night. Ya know, I have over 70 George Jones Records?! If you look at them all, it gives you a great history of men's haircuts. Here's George in a period of time when he had just grown out his brush cut and had a bit of a mutton chop sideburn look going.”
  • Peter Wolf
    “I ran into Pete at an all night drugstore, and he told me about this song.”
  • Another Sleepless Night
    " of the original members of the Cajun French Music Hall of Fame , which was established in 1997, not a moment too soon.”

  • Love Is Only Sleeping
    “Another finely crafted pop classic”
  • Sleep
    “Hmmm, sounds like me playin' the organ!”
  • Endless Sleep
    “This next song is not for the faint of heart. Death rock was a phenomenon that happened in the late 50s and early 60s – maybe it was because of people's fear of the atomic bomb during the Cold War…This record is one of the most atmospheric of the bunch.”
  • The Band
    “Here's a distinctive voice with an unquiet heart, Richard Manuel, singin with The Band, a voice of dreams…”
  • Louis Armstrong
    When It's Sleepy Time Down South
    “This is how Louis used to close his shows; we'll use it to close ours.”

  • General Johnson
    " an interesting guy. First of all, his name is General Johnson, and that's interesting right there. Second of all, he had two hit records, and you never heard his name before."

The Other Songs and Albums

The Books and Poems

  • Hamlet
    "'To die, to sleep
    To sleep, perchance to dream.
    Ay, there's the rub
    For in that sleep what dreams may come
    When we have shuffled off this mortal coil' -- Don't shuffle off too soon, we got a lot more music to play ya!"
  • Sleep now, O sleep now,
    O you unquiet heart!
    A voice crying "Sleep now"
    Is heard in my heart. The voice of the winter
    Is heard at the door.
    O sleep, for the winter
    Is crying "Sleep no more."
    My kiss will give peace now
    And quiet to your heart--
    Sleep on in peace now,
    O you unquiet heart!
  • 1st Corinthians, Chapter 11, Verse 30
