One of my favorite songs and my favorite album, though with the
caveat that the last Elton John album I bought was Goodbye
Yellow Brick Road.

Back in the day, the last one I bought was Caribou.

Though I bought the 45 "Someone Saved My Life Tonight", my sister owned the Captain Fantastic album, which I never listened to but once... I do like Greatest Hits Vol. 2...

Thanks for posting this one.

I always like this song whenever I hear, but I never knew the title was "Don't Dream It's Over."
I also didn't know the name of the singer/band who performed it.
What stuck in my memory was the recurring "Hey now, hey now."
So while I like the song, I never sought it out to listen to "on demand."

I also never realized how literary the lyrics were:
"Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup."

The album and song were hits when they first came out in the mid 1980s.
Unfortunately, this was their only big hit in the U.S., though they had
longer lasting success in other places.
