I Can Dream About You
There must be lights burning brighter somewhere Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue If I can dream of a better land Where all my brothers walk hand in hand Tell me why, oh why, oh why can't my dream come true…. The assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Senator Robert Kennedy, affected Elvis Presley deeply. These feelings led Elvis to give one of the most passionate performances of his career.
Released in as a single from the soundtrack, and included on Hartman's album I Can Dream About You , it reached number 6 on the Billboard Hot The song first appeared in Streets of Fire , where it was performed by the fictional group The Sorels. The real voice behind the version used in the film was Winston Ford , but Hartman's version was the one used on the soundtrack album and released as a single.

Not that this is a bad thing, because I happen to like this song and many others like it. Yet, as is the case with many songs , there is as lot of deeper meaning going on here, and without wishing to discuss the lyrics of the song in detail, which are standard fare of a singer declaring loyalty and fidelity to an absent partner, saying that if he cannot be with his love he will dream about the partner and imagine holding his lover tight, something done admirably well by Journey, Peter Cetera, and others, and it is no less admirable here. It hit 6 on the charts, and was a successful song from a soundtrack that is largely forgotten, yet it has layers of meaning that are seldom examined. Streets Of Fire is the name of the movie that the film comes from, and the movie would be largely entirely unknown apart from this song and the fact that it stars a beautiful and young Diane Lane. The movie had one thing good going for it—this song—which did not nearly repay the losses given that the film only made back half of its budget. Yet this song makes its artist a mystery, as there are layers and layers of pretense attached. How many layers?
