If it has to do with dreaming, having nightmares or simply sleeping, it's welcome (songs or instrumentals).

Insomniac night owl me is certain there are hundreds of songs about sleep, dreams, dreaming and nightmares. I'll even accept the daytime variety=] Whether title or lyrics, please:

^^^Thank you! Thank you! ^^^ Amazingly, I haven't heard either of those, so I will take a break from Basil Poledouris' "Conan the Barbarian" soundtrack to listen to them.


Metallica - Enter Sandman [Official Music Video] - YouTube

This one seems to be stubborn; I have to refresh several times before it gets going each time I visit it.

Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers - Runnin' Down A Dream - YouTube
The art obviously is inspired by Winsor McCay's "Little Nemo in Slumberland".

EDIT: I really like the second one.

However, John's song sounds like sour grapes. I've read more than once that many thought the labels should have been reversed: Paul as Genius #1; John, Genius #2. I know how *I* judge their accomplishments.

Thank you for participating! I was hoping this would bring in a wide variety, including favorites and some less-familiar ones. These have been popular subjects in the history of composing.


Daydream Believer- the Monkees - YouTube


California Dreamin - Mamas & The Papas - YouTube


Eurythmics - Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) - YouTube

NOTE: I'm a Baby Boomer who is fully aware of John Lennon's fate. However, if this song is about Paul, it sounds like a case of sg to me.
