Coverland: A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes

   Its been a loooooong time since we visited Coverland!  There is no better time to visit wonderful Disney cover songs than in the fall, when everyone is sentimental and sweet. :)
   Today we are listening to a few gorgeous covers of A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes from the 1950 animated classic Cinderella.  Maybe you remember a while ago we delved into the source material of this classic song...which lead us to totally unexpected territories!  Today though, we will stick to a more familiar sound:

Simple harp and fantastic turn of phrase. Beautiful cover by Niia


Short breathtaking live version by Ren Harvieu. Echoey perfection.



Maybe my favorite version! Bing Crosby doing his thing!


Though critically panned, I love Brian Wilson's cover. It has a weird gravitas coming from him. 


    Pretty cool right?  I wasnt familiar with any of these covers prior to putting together this post, but I'm glad to have found them!  Which one is your favorite??
