"Dreams to dream... in the dark of the night
When the world goes wrong
I can still make it right
I can see so far in my dreams,
I'll follow my dreams
Until they come true."
Like many, I was saddened to hear about the passing of James Horner last month. Many have noted his Titanic and Braveheart scores, but the song that's playing over and over in my mind lately has been his "Dreams to Dream," the Oscar nominated song which Horner created with Will Jennings for Fievel goes West. This scene made a lasting impression on me as a child. And, lately, I've found myself humming it often.
Is it just me, or is this song overdue for a modern cover? One can dream.
