What’s the deal with so damn many songs about dreams and dreaming? Maybe it’s because these songs can literally be about anything. With subjects like love or loss, you’re kinda roped into dealing with feelings and mushy stuff, but when it comes to tunes about the sleeping world or the land of daydreaming, the sky’s literally the limit. Fortunately, most mainstream artists tend to not get too ethereal or bizarre as to alienate their audiences, but some do manage to throw in imagery and lyrics that take us on journeys not otherwise attainable by other songs. So, after all that rambling crap, let’s look at 20 songs about dreams. And no, this is by no means a complete collection. If you feel there are any missed, make sure to add them in the comments.
