(aired 10/22/10)shoes
Do you like Rapid Eye Movement as much as me? Today’s show is dedicated to dreams. It’s the second chapter of a similar theme started at the beginning of this year, when we focused on songs with Sleep in the titles/lyrics.

During some periods of my life I recorded my dreams when I woke up every morning (and in my college days I posted all the tales on my student webpage). When I got in the habit of recalling them, the details got rich and the stories were long.

There have been many songs with “dream” in the title or lyrics over the years. For this theme I got a total of 57 song suggestions from you listeners! It was a challenging but rewarding process to narrow it down to today’s playlist. May you fully enjoy this dream!
