Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams (song)

"Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams" (also known as "Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams (and Dream Your Troubles Away") is a popular song written by Harry Barris with lyrics by Ted Koehler and Billy Moll, published in 1931. The original 1931 popular hit recording was made by Bing Crosby with the Gus Arnheim Orchestra on March 2, 1931 for Victor Records, but the song has become a standard, recorded by many other artists since. Bing Crosby recorded the song four times over his career as well as performing its film debut in the Mack Sennett short, One More Chance (1931). An outtake from one of the sessions recorded on June 9, 1939 was preserved by blooper compiler Kermit Schafer in which Bing has his most famous “blowup” when he continues singing ad-lib and occasionally risqué words perfectly in tune. That outtake was presented in the PBS American Masters episode Bing Crosby Rediscovered. Imogene Coca performed this song in an episode of Your Show of Shows while dressed as a hobo; the audience reaction was so favorable that she encored her version in the very last episode of the variety series, making this the only song she performed in two different episodes of Your Show of Shows.
