Today’s top 5 tackles the most Freudian of topics: dreams. Except I’m expanding the topic to include conscious musings in addition to the Dali-esque adventures that come with sleep. Of the former: If I ever win the Powerball, in addition to retiring, Diane and I plan to rent a concert hall and invite our musical favorites to play for us, our family and friends. Of the latter: The other morning I found myself on an uncharted desert isle reminiscent of Gilligan’s.
I don’t remember much, mind you, beyond this: a tiger observed me from the edge of a clearing. And then I awoke… and found my ferocious feline splayed beside me, fast asleep.
1) Bobby Darin & Petula Clark – “All I Have to Do Is Dream”
2) Dusty Springfield – “Come for a Dream”
3) Paul McCartney – “Country Dreamer”
4) Fleetwood Mac – “Dreams”
5) Sandy Denny – “I’m a Dreamer”
And a few bonuses…
6) Blondie – “Dreaming”
7) The Jam – “Dreams of Children”
8) Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers – “Runnin’ Down a Dream”
9) Neil Young – “Dreamin’ Man”
10) Duffy – “Distant Dreamer”
Crazy coincidence you should choose dreaming as one of your topics as I have been having some seriously freaky ones lately that have me fearful where they are heading, should they continue.
My AOR roots may be showing but of your featured selections today, I love the F Mac, the Petty and mostly the Blondie track. Because you have yet to steer me wrong I will give the other tracks a shot as well.
Please consider me for the guest list should your lottery dreams pan out. Worth the road trip!
I love that Blondie track – just bursting with hooks.
