No Time For Dreaming

Last Saturday I woke up with the sounds of 'Together in electric dreams' from Phil Oakey (The Human League) and Giorgio Moroder (Donna Summer). A few minutes later I heard about the death of Etta James on the news. I thought I had to combine those two things and then the idea came about to make a mix about dreams and dreaming. We all know songs like ‘Dreaming’ from Blondie, 'Dreams' by Fleetwood Mac and ‘Sad sweet dreamer’ was a hit record for Sweet Sensation in 1974, but I tried to avoid the classics. Most of the songs in the second part are not only about dreaming, but they sound a little bit dreamy as well. That's after Charles Bradley shouts that there’s ‘no time for dreaming’. But his song seems a good message to make it the main theme of the mix… ;-) This mix also pays tribute to Etta James, the one and only queen of R&B. I’m curious: what are your favorites about dreaming? The picture is the album cover of ‘Dust for angels’ from Friends of Adam. Have sweet dreams tonight!
