Dream On (Depeche Mode song)

"Dream On" is Depeche Mode's thirty-sixth UK single, released on April 23, 2001 in the UK and April 24 in the US. It was the first single for the then-upcoming album Exciter.

"Dream On" is an electronic based song mixed in with acoustic guitar and rough vocals, causing some people to falsely think of it as a country song. The single version starts with the guitar, while the album version has David Gahan saying "Can you feel a little love?" before a minimal electro beat opens the song.

The B-side is the instrumental song "Easy Tiger". While the Exciter version is a short interlude, the "Full Version" has an extended intro and continues the song with a similar melody underlined by a beat.

The music video for "Dream On" was directed by Stephane Sednaoui. One of the special parts of the video is that it was filmed on Route 66, which is also a Bobby Troup song that the band covered in 1987 for the "Behind the Wheel" single.

On June 26, 2001, the band played "Dream On" on The Late Show with David Letterman.
