The theme of this particular music series is a basic one: songs with "dream" in the title. We are at #4, with a song that is a fairly obvious choice: "Dreamboat Annie" by Heart. The title track of Heart's 1975 (released in 1976 in the US) debut album, there are three versions of "Dreamboat Annie " on that record. While it was originally the B-Side of "Crazy on You," it was released as a single in it's own right, with the acoustic opener to "Crazy on You" attached to the beginning. Oddly, this particular version does not appear on any Heart album. That single peaked at #42 on the Billboard Hot 100, and reached #2 in France. It also crossed over to Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart, hitting #17. I've linked to a video of the band performing the official single version with the "Crazy on You" opening. An obvious choice, yes, but I couldn't NOT use it. It's just too good. Enjoy! (Info verified by Wikipedia)

They sure did, even though I do not like their 80's stuff.

@arthurchappell - They definitely managed to adapt to the 80'a, but I just prefer their 70's material.

They did it when I saw them, which was to be expected, but still a treat.

This is a great one and (oddly) Anne's favorite Heart song.

I’m not a Heart fan, but I LOVE this song. In fact, I posted it for my brother (he’s a big Heart fan) for his birthday last week. Excellent choice!!!
