These Dreams

The rock band Heart, known for featuring sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson, had a string of hits in the 1970s, but then fell off the map a bit in the first half of the 1980s. With the release of their self-titled album Heart in 1985, though, things changed for the band for awhile.  Heart would score four top 10 hits off the album, including their first-ever number 1 single, “These Dreams,” which rose to the top for one week exactly 25 years ago today.  The song was penned by Bernie Taupin, who is most known as the longtime collaborator of Elton John, and Martin Page, who would go on to cowrite a number of other hits before having his own moderately successful single, “In the House of Stone and Light,” in the mid-1990s.

For Heart, the album and this single began a career renaissance.  Their subsequent release, 1987’s Bad Animals, would spawn three top 20 hits, including their biggest hit, “Alone,” which spent three weeks at the top of the Hot 100 that summer.  In the early 1990s, such other hits as “All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You,” “I Didnt Want to Need You,” “Stranded,” and “Will You Be There (In the Morning)” would follow.
