Kate's The Dreaming is better suited for a Nightmares collection. Don't get me wrong, I love the layers and layers of sounds but it doesn't fit in the theme, especially the creepy sheep sounds.

I have some, they might be obscure since most of the music I listen to is from European artists:

Anastacia - Pieces Of A Dream
All Saints - Dreams (William Orbit produced)
Blondie - Dreaming
Carly Simon - The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of
The Cure - The Dream
Fleetwood Mac / The Corrs - Dreams
The Cranberries - Dreaming My Dreams
Dannii Minogue - Am I Dreaming?
Delta Goodrem - How A Dream Looks (I hugely recommend this song, just beautiful)
Depeche Mode - Dream On
Depeche Mode - Dreaming Of Me
Dixie Chicks - Godspeed (Sweet Dreams)
The Human League - The Things That Dreams Are Made Of
Kate Bush - Army Dreamers
Kylie Minogue - Dreams (from her strange indie-type Impossible Princess album from '98, think Ray Of Light to Madonna)
New Order - Dreams Never End
Pet Shop Boys - Dreaming Of The Queen
PJ Harvey - Horses In My Dreams
Rachel Stevens - Sweet Dreams My L.A. Ex
Kelis & Richard X - Finest Dreams (lyrics to "The Finest" with the music to Human League's "The Things...")
Robbie Williams - These Dreams (nice somber album ender)
Robyn - Dream On
Rufus Wainwright - Waiting For A Dream
S Club 7 - Never Had A Deam Come True (annoying group but a great song nonetheless)
Seal - Dreaming In Metaphors
Tina Turner - In Your Wildest Dreams

No Aerosmith Dream On is an abomination of the highest degree.

Billy Joel, he only says 'Dreams' once. I forgot completely about Debbie Gibson. That's a good song. And Aerosmith. Don't know how I forgot that.

I left off Fleetwood Mac, I just don't know that song that well.

I was thinking there are probably enough songs to do a double disc set...
