I wrote this song, Sweet Dreams and Happiness, back in the Bronx and I recorded it on my soundtrack CD Up in the Bronx and Down in LA – which, believe it or not, is the soundtrack or companion piece for the novel Up in the Bronx. Both the novel and the album are available online. Check out the Up in the Bronx Page (on top).
I had also written a similar song called There’s a Better World To Be. And I’ve combined them here because they go together, the first going from the relative minor to the major and the second song going from major to minor. Kind of like the Los Angeles Dodgers this season.
