This Orbison song is a bit of a mystery. After my previous post I decided to look up Orbison lyrics. Apparently he has songs called "Dream", "Dream Baby", and of course "In Dreams". Unfortunatey, none of the lyrics really equate to the song that was played last night. Was Bruce just ad-libbing?

I read that it is a new song, an Orbison-esque song, a nod to Orbison, but not an actual Orbison song.

Dream Baby or In Dreams? Fire or I'm on Fire?

It was I'm on Fire.

With a banjo.

(wasn't that in your dream, too?)

Before HTDAAB was released, I dreamed that Edge was playing the banjo. It sort of came true.

Interesting.

When you look at the set list on Springsteen's own web site, it lists the title of the song as "Dream" and then has Roy Orbison's name in parantheses. To me, I would think that it meant it was a Roy Orbison song.

Perhaps it is and Bruce altered the lyrics. He has a song called "Follow That Dream" which is really an Elvis song but Bruce reworked it into his own style. It could be something like that.

EDIT - To further the mystery, Roy Orbison's name in parantheses has now disappeared from the website...

Hmmm...

Hopefully a recording of this will show up soon.

Maybe "Dream" is a song about Roy Orbison, and the working title is:
"Dream (Roy Orbison)"
You know in the vein of "Pride (In the Name of Love)"

Backstreets is saying that it is a cover from a relatively unkown band called Suicide.

If it's the band that Alan Vega used to be in from many years ago...

Richard Butler on Suicide's 'Dream, Baby Dream'

Suicide were Alan Vega and Martin Rev. They were a synth-and-drum machine duo from the late seventies who were probably role models for the likes of Soft Cell and Pet Shop Boys, but they were extremely uptempo and agressive - they used to bait the audience and even get into fights with them. I remember seeing them supporting The Clash in 1980, they were the loudest thing I've ever heard. And they were canned off. This is their one ballad. They usually sang about things like murder, suicide and insanity, but the message of this one is : you've gotta have dreams. The lyrics just goes 'dream, baby dream', over and over like a mantra. Vega's voice is quite rockabilly - his hero was Elvis - and very rough. The whole thing is much more 'in yer face' than say, Kraftwerk. He throws in the odd ad lib, like 'keep those dreamsd burning, baby', but basically it's monotonous.

The drum machine sounds really cheap, it's just a pulse going on in the middle distance, then thre's this endlessly repeated synthesised melody, a kind of sweet bell noise, very simple. it sounds a bit like The Tornadoes, who did "Telstar", making seedy, downtown New York music, like Lou Reed. Martin Rev was definitely of the two fingersschool keyboard playing. What they did was show that you didn't have to be like the Sex pistols to be aggressive. I don't know what they're up tonow. They really didn't like each other, and I doubt if they do now.

"Dream, Baby Dream' was released as a single on Island WIP6543

While "Dream Baby Dream" would have had serious longshot odds if you were trying to predict a Springsteen cover, Bruce's love of the band goes way back, with Suicide being an influence on Nebraska. In his 12/6/84 interview for Rolling Stone, Kurt Loder had this exchange with Springsteen:

RS: What bands have you been listening to lately?
BS: I listen to a lot of different types of things. I like U2, Divinyls, Van Morrison. I like the band Suicide.
RS: That makes sense: "State Trooper," one of the songs on Nebraska, sounds very much like Suicide.
BS: Yeah. They had that two-piece synthesizer-voice thing. They had one of the most amazing songs I ever heard. It was about a guy that murders...
RS: "Frankie Teardrop"?
BS: Yeah! Oh, my God! That's one of the most amazing records I think I ever heard. I really love that record.
