Song Titles about Dreams, Dreaming, etc.

A lot of songs are written about dreams and dreaming. How about listing the song titles we know about dreams, dreaming, dreamed, etc., and even nightmares, if you can think of one!

The Sounds of Silence -- Simon & Garfunkel

 

"Hello darkness, my old friend,
I've come to talk with you again,
Because a vision softly creeping

Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the vision that was planted in my brain still remains
Within the sound of silence.
In restless dreams I walked alone narrow streets of cobblestone ... "

In 1973 David Cassidy recorded an album entitled Dreams Are Nuthin' More Than Wishes.  This title comes from the opening line of a Harry Nilsson song called "The Puppy Song."  David's version was on this album:

Don't think I've seen any Beach Boys songs mentioned yet and they were all about dreaming:

 

1) And Your Dream Comes True

2) Your Summer Dream
3) Still I Dream of It
4) A Time to Live in Dreams
5) Meet Me In My Dreams Tonight
6) California Dreamin' (Mamas & Papas cover)

7) In My Room

"Do my dreaming and my scheming, lie awake and pray ..."

😎 Hushabye
"Lullaby and goodnight, in my dreams, I hold you tight ... "

9) Darlin'
"Oh darlin', I dream you often my pretty darlin' ..."

10) What is a Young Girl Made Of?
"Everything that's nice, that's what you are, what you will always be
Made of my dreams, close as my heart to me ..."

11) Surfer Girl
"So I say from me to you
I will make your dreams come true
Do you love me do you surfer girl?"

12) Summer's Gone
"Old friends have gone
They've gone their separate ways
Our dreams hold on for those who still have more to say ..."
