"Dreams" is the debut single by English singer-songwriter Gabrielle, taken from her debut album, Find Your Way. Written by Gabrielle and Tim Laws and produced by Richie Fermie, it reached number one on the UK Singles Chart for three weeks in June 1993. The single entered the UK chart at number 2, which was the highest chart entry a debut female solo act had scored in the UK at that time. The song also peaked at number 26 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the US and at number-one on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart.
Adele used to sing the song as a child. She sang it so frequently that her mother made her a custom eye patch, not only to resemble the one worn by Gabrielle, but also so that Adele could wear it when she was allowed to go back to school after a bout with conjunctivitis. Adele claims that she would even sing the song at her mother's dinner parties to entertain the guests.
"Dreams" was the first of two known Gabrielle songs that Adele covered as a child, the other being "Rise."
