And this is how Britney should have done 'Hold It Against Me,' instead of the craziness that was her music video. Not only, is Ryan James Yezak's video totally hot, it's totally cool. Awesomeness at it's best. Check it out and tell me what you think.
"I need you so, that I could die, I love you so, and that is why, whenever I want you, all I have to do is dream."
If I could write every movie this song was featured in, I would. If I could write down how many artists have sung different versions of this song, I would. And...... I'll stop there. The song was originally sung by the Everly Brothers back in 1958, 5 years after my mother was born and 7 after years after my Father. The likelihood they heard it as teenagers is pretty high. Hell, I heard it as a teenager, and the original version no less.
Here's a little something you probably didn't know...
On November 4, 2010, Stephen Colbert and Elvis Costello ended "The Colbert Report" with a duet of "All I Have To Do Is Dream" and the full version of the song appeared on the ColbertNation web site by the following morning.
Andy Gibb and Victoria Principal (Pamela Ewing from the TV series Dallas) released a duet version back in 1981.Former marines, the Everly brothers are still alive today, and are very proud to say they had a total of 26 Billboard Top 40 singles and 35 Billboard Top 100 singles, they were also among the first 10 artists inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 1997, they were awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. In addition, they were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2001.
I'd say those are some pretty darn good achievements; There's plenty more to read at Wikipedia, but for now I present to you the original song in an actual live performance. The sound is actually quite remarkable. I have also added an extra bonus after the jump - the duets with Andy Gibb and Victoria Principal, also Elvis Costello and Stephen Colbert.

I met my partner Ryan the year his beloved maltese, Mashie passed away. I never got to meet the little hairball, but it's videos like this that make me wish I had. I miss you too Mashie.
