Mellow Mondays: Dan Hartman, "I Can Dream About You"

Posted By on Mon, May 26, 2008 at 8:00 AM

(A to Z is proud to introduce another new weekly feature: Mellow Mondays. It's the start of the work week, and you're likely tired, hungover and grouchy that you're stuck at work. So to ease your transition back into the daily grind, every week we'll troll YouTube for the smoothest, easiest jams. Guilty pleasures? Yacht rock gems? Dentist office fodder? Requests only Delilah would love? Nothing is sacred or too mellow for this column.)

Dan Hartman, "I Can Dream About You"

Where You'll Find this Song: The Streets of Fire soundtrack.

Fun fact: Hartman wrote "Free Ride," a hit for the Edgar Winter Group.

Other collaborators: He worked with/produced/wrote songs for folks such as Tina Turner, Dusty Springfield, Joe Cocker, Bonnie Tyler, Paul Young, James Brown, Nona Hendryx and Steve Winwood.

Current whereabouts: The Pennsylvania native died in 1994 due to complications from AIDS.
