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.”

Eric is a proud member of a very extended family--one that doesn’t always understand what he’s up to these days, but supports him anyway.He graduated from his Houston high school with a diploma and an Associate’s degree (impressive, right?), graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in three years, and just completed a two-year master’s program at New Mexico Highlands University, where he wrote a creative writing thesis on the evolution of literary vampires.Shockingly, he has not been able to find a steady job with this knowledge.Eric likes to write fiction and is currently waiting to hear back from publishers about a manuscript he sent in.When he’s not writing about fake things, Eric enjoys talking about the elusive concept of Mexicanidad and what it means to be Mexican American in the United States.He is currently working on a memoir of sorts on his blog he is not reading or writing, Eric spends his time avoiding small children.He does not always succeed.
