Album 365: Day 64 - Heart - Dreamboat Annie

Dreamboat Annie

Favorite tracks: Magic Man, Crazy On You, Sing Child
Sleeper tracks: Dreamboat Annie (Fantasy Child), Dreamboat Annie (Reprise)

Ann Wilson is the best rock n roll female singer ever.  End of discussion.

I never heard this album all the way through until high school.  I was familiar with "Magic Man" and "Crazy On You" from radio play and I heard one of the 3 versions of "Dreamboat Annie" more than once.

As a concept album, it was a cool first release from a band.  I still don't get the 3 versions of "Dreamboat Annie" and how they all made it on the record.  The other songs make up for the repetitiveness of the "...Annie" melody.

I will always have a crush on Ann Wilson.  I don't care if she's way larger now than she was back in the 70s.  She was hot and had a killer voice.

  1. The first sentence of your posting says it all. I completely agree. Crazy on you is one my all time favorite songs.
