Music A to Z: Dreaming Out Loud

Music A to Z: Dreaming Out Loud

May 13, 2014 Writing 4

I’m really enjoying this new music meme. It’s allowing me to not only learn the names of the some of the songs I hear on the radio, but learn the lyrics too. I’ve been thinking about “D” all week, and it’s really been more like a dream….

I want to see you clearly
Come closer than this
But all I remember
Are the dreams in the mist

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree

Dream on, dream on, dream on,
Dream until your dream come true

Dream life the way you think it ought to be
See things you thought you’d never ever see

And oh, my dreams,
It’s never quite as it seems,
‘Cause you’re a dream to me,
Dream to me.

I was counting on forever, now I’ll never know
I can’t even breathe

Yeah runnin’ down a dream
That never would come to me

And finally, no mixtape about “Dreams” would be complete without a little Fleetwood Mac….

Who wants to wrap around your dreams and…
Have you any dreams you’d like to sell?

And there you have it, friends. Music, dreams, what is one without the other? AND? I even managed to do it without a bunch of commentary. After all, do you have narrators in YOUR dreams?

And that’s a wrap for another Music A to Z mixtape. What’s your D?

    Love the theme of dreams, you picked perfect songs for that.

    I love each and every one of these songs! I hadn’t heard that Human League song in years! And, normally, I associate Cranberries music with depressing things like war and famine, I had totally forgotten about this one!

    Next week is “E” — have you started thinking about it yet? LOL! 🙂

It's YOUR write side, too! Let's hear it!
