1980-56: Anne Murray, “Daydream Believer”

A few songs back we discussed John Stewart (see song 1980-51), the composer of the Monkees’ 1967 classic “Daydream Believer.” On the HOT 100 chart dated January 5, 1980, Stewart was charting himself with “Lost Her in the Sun” at #51.

At #56 that same week, Canadian Anne Murray was charting on the HOT 100 with her cover of “Daydream.” It would eventually reach #12 a few months later, and wind up as the #61 song of the entire year.

Memorable lyric: “Oh when our good times started then not a dollar one to spend, but how much baby do we really need?”
