"Oh What a Dream" is a 1954 blues song written by Chuck Willis and originally performed by Ruth Brown backed by members of The Drifters (only credited as her Rhythmakers). The song has been described as a torch song with a gospel tint, adding up to a big dose of that R&B balladeering as expressed in the lyrics and Brown's soulful performance:
"Dreamed I held you in my arms
But I'm still waiting for that day to come
Ohh what a dream, what a dream I had last night"
The single became Brown's fourth number one on the U.S. R&B chart.
