Your Wildest Dreams

After forming in 1964, the British band the Moody Blues hit the top 10 with “Go Now!” in 1965 and then became known in the late 1960s and early 1970s for a series of hits, pinnacling with 1972’s “Nights In White Satin,” which rose to number 2 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart.  After a few years off in the mid-1970s, the band reunited in 1977 and scored several more Top 40 hits from the late 1970s to the late 1980s.  Exactly 25 years ago right now, the biggest hit of the second stage of the band’s career, “Your Wildest Dreams,” was in the middle of a two-week run at its peak position of number 9.  The song, which was the first single from the band’s The Other Side of Life album, offered a nostalgic narrative, harkening back to the rock ‘n’ roll scene of the 1960s.  The song became especially known for its video, which echoed that narrative and can be seen above.  The band would tell a second part to that story in the video for their next top 40 hit–1988’s “I Know You’re Out There Somewhere,” which was the first single off their next album, Sur La Mer.
