These Dreams – OOTM

Feb 03

My current Obsession of the Moment is this song – and mainly anything in the world that Nancy Wilson has ever laid her hands on. There is something so female, so powerful, and so heart-wrenching about this song. I can’t quite put my finger on what it is about the song that gets to me, but it makes me feel like a teenager in the passenger seat of my best friends’ car, dreaming about the life I want to live. I was a little devastated to find out that this song wasn’t written by Ann & Nancy (as most of their songs were) but instead by Bernie Taupin, who also penned such gems as “We Built This City” for Jefferson Starship and many hits for Elton John.

I can’t believe a man wrote this song.
