Music video by Heart performing These Dreams.
"These Dreams" is a popular song released in 1986 by the rock band Heart from their 1985 self-titled album. It was the first song by the band to become a number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100.
In 1985, Martin Page (who co-wrote several other pop hits, including "We Built This City" and "King of Wishful Thinking") and Bernie Taupin (longtime collaborator of Elton John) wrote the music and lyrics to the song now known as "These Dreams." At the time, Page and Taupin were under contract to Columbia Records and the record company offered the song to Stevie Nicks, who expressed no interest in recording it. Heart had just recently signed with Capitol Records. While the band had previously recorded their own material, they were impressed by "These Dreams" and agreed to use it on their upcoming album.
