List RulesSongs with sleep in the title are fair game, but this list focuses mainly on songs about sleep as a subject.

It's not difficult to find a dream song in the discography of your favorite musical artist. Aerosmith has "Dream On," Green Day has "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," and Metallica has "Enter Sandman." Although some songs are about nightmares, most are about happy dreams that can only be experienced in a deep sleep. This is a ranked list of all songs about dreams, as voted on by music fans like you. Some of the songs included below may have the words "dream" or "sleep" in the lyrics or title, while others are only about dreaming as a subject or theme.

Music isn't typically categorized by the meaning of the words, so this music list is a great way to find some solid tracks that are thematically similar. Vote for the dreamer songs that you enjoy the most, and downvote ones if you think they're not worthy of being high on the list. If one of your top songs is missing, add it to the list so others can vote for it too. Many genres of music are featured below, including rock, pop, folk, metal, and more.
