‘You might say I’m a dreamer but I’m not the only one.’ You remember this timeless lyric by John Lennon. Maybe you consider yourself a dreamer as well. One may dream of a more hopeful future or just use daydreaming to distract from harsh reality. There are as many occasions for dreaming as there are multiple definitions of the ‘dreampop.’
