15 Songs About Beautiful Dreams

As we enter the holiday season, it’s hard not to become reflective. The year’s almost over. For many of us this means the end of school or work, family visits (for better or worse), and eating lots and lots of food. Contrary to popular belief, winter can be a time of revitalization, when goals abandoned in the middle of the year can be dusted off, polished, and set again. This is a time when dreams, dried out in the summer sun, can be remembered and resuscitated. Winter is a time of big sweaters, warm cups of hot cocoa, and snuggling close to the ones we love most. For some mammals (or even some of us), winter is a time of hibernation. Winter is a time for dreams.

To celebrate dreams and dreamers, we’ve crafted this playlist. It begins with “Beautiful Dreamer” sung by Marty Robbins and flows into “California Dreamin’” by The Mamas and the Papas. Selena’s “Dreaming of You” fit almost too well into this list and melts into “Sweet Dreams” by Queen Bey herself. Metallica shakes up the list with “Enter Sandman,” and the list mellows out with Lana Del Rey and the Smiths. Fleetwood Mac wraps everything up with “Dreams.”
