Deep Dive Under the Covers: Dreams
June 3, 2019 6:18AM EDT
This week’s Deep Dive features your requested COVER SONGS!
Today, we looked into Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams.” “Dreams” originally topped the charts as one of many wildly successful songs off 1977’s Rumours. Interestingly, the band’s official video is a live take on the song.
Listeners requested Beck’s cover of “Dreams.” Beck’s take on this legendary song stands out for being completely different than the original. He gave it the full Beck treatment — changing melody, phrasing, and instrumentation so much that many people refuse to believe it’s actually a cover!
