Default ~ songs about dreaming ~~

An elder audio buddy pulled me aside sagely and said
“Rick, you’re not spending enough time on your DIY – too much time online, and too much dreaming!!”

So I started to think about ~ songs about dreaming:

Heres’ a couple:

~ Bouncy Dreaming – Blondie singing Dreaming:

When I met you in the restaurant you could tell I was no debutante.
You asked me what's my pleasure, "A movie or a measure"?
I'll have a cup of tea and tell you of my dreaming.
Dreaming is free.
Dreaming.

I don't want to live on charity.
Pleasure's real or is it fantasy?
Reel to reel is living rarity.
People stop and stare at me, we just walk on by; we just keep on dreaming.
Dreaming is free.
Dreaming.

I sit by and watch the river flow.
I sit by and watch the traffic go.
Imagine something of your very own; something you can have and hold.
I'd build a road in gold just to have some dreaming.
Dreaming is free.
Dreaming.

~ King Dreaming – Elvis singing (NBC Studios, Burbank, June 23, 1968: wha thank you Mr Parker”) :

“If I could dream, of a better world . .”


What’s your dreaming song?

The most famous American "dream" song is actually a Steven Forrester tune from the Civil War "I dream of Jeannie with the Light Brown Hair"

But perhaps SY is old enough to remember this Jeannie to dream by:

Dreams by Fleetwood Mac (too obvious to even mention?), I'm only dreaming by Small Faces, Rainy day, dream away - Hendrix, See you in my dreams - ?, - Dream on - Sweet, Daydream believer - ?, Sweet dreams - Yes.
There must be many more.
