Greg Henderson - Dreamin'

It had been a while since I had heard this until someone pulled it out at a party following on from the excellent Greg Wilson at Audio. It's been in my head ever since.

Released in 1982, the social back drop at the time was pretty depressing - unemployment, inflation, violence, nuclear stand off, racism. Dreamin' is a clear example of how the youth at the time dealt with the situation. By getting together in a room, dancing like fools and singing along to some of the most positive and inspiring lyrics you'll ever hear.

With some of the nonsense going on in the world today, this is a relevant now as it ever was. A new national anthem for Egypt if ever there was one.
