Stevie Nicks' raspy vocals and the wafting rhythms of this iconic song give it a dreamlike quality. This band started out as a blues band in the 60s, then when Nicks and Buckingham joined them, the blending of sounds brought about a whole new animal, one that captured the sound of the 70s, and this song is a perfect combination of those elements.
Smoky, sexy, soft, too-cool-for-school....Dreams. This song is like the calm before the storm, pulsing rain clouds before the downpour. So much contained vibrancy in it. Dreams is an evergreen song that is one of the foundations of the 70s soft rock sound.
