These Dreams by Heart






Song was written by Martin Page and Bernie Taupin, long-time collaborator of Elton John.

Song topped the Billboard Hot 100 in 1986. This song has lead vocals by guitarist, Nancy Wilson, instead of lead vocalist, Ann Wilson.

Heart started out as a folk rock group in 1972 or 1973 (the band actually started in 1969 but was named "The Army". Then it changed its name to "White Heart" and then to "Hocus Pocus" and then finally, "Heart")

Heart did a glam metal makeover in mid-80s which yielded 3 successful albums and 7 top 10 hits (they only had 2 top 10 hits before then).

Heart is my favourite rock group fronted by woman/women and this song is my favourite song from Heart.

Another song on dreams.

Another song from a rock band fronted by a woman.


Dreams by Irish rock band The Cranberries






Song was written by lead singer Dolores O'Riordan and lead guitarist Noel Hogan.

Released in 1992 (released in Ireland in 1990), song only hit 42 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1994 even though the radios there kind of like the song (it hit 33 on Mainstream Top 40). My guess is that sales was not that great in USA back then. The Cranberries was never extremely popular in USA and has only 1 top 10 hit there. They don't even have a top 10 hit in UK but fared much better elsewhere in Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

An acoustic version of the song was released in 2017 and hit #16 on the US Digital Song Sales chart.

Note that the MV here is the second version. There are 3 versions.

O'Riordan passed away on 15 January 2018. She had drowned in her hotel room's bathtub due to sedation by alcohol poisoning.
