The speaker that played "Mr. Sandman" upon Marty McFly's arrival in Hill Valley in 1955.

"Mr. Sandman" was a song that was written by Pat Ballard. It was recorded by many artists, including the Four Aces, who recorded their version in 1954, the same year the song was first published.


When Marty McFly first arrived at Courthouse Square in Hill Valley on November 5, 1955, the Four Aces version of the song was playing on a speaker at Roy's Records.

The song was also heard playing close to the Western Auto Store later on the same week as Biff Tannen was getting his car back.



  • The Family Ties episode "Band on the Run" has Jennifer Keaton band at one point performing Mr. Sandman.
