Dream City Dreams

Album: Wild August (1989)

Songfacts®:

  • Co-written by Dan McCafferty (not he of Nazareth fame) and Bill Barnes, this uptempo track appears on the soundtrack of the 1987 screwball comedy Firehouse.

    Recorded by Wild August, billed as August, it is fair to say that although it is thematic, it is superior by several orders of magnitude to the film. It also appears on the band's eponymous 1989 debut album. >>
