Atlantic Starr

Am I Dreaming

Composed by Sam Dees

Song Review by

A scintillating duet penned by Sam Dees, featuring Sharon Bryant and David Lewis but credited to the group. The quiet storm favorite is one of the talented band's most memorable numbers and marries uptown with an urban hybrid of deep soul. The spine-tingling, sensual chorus leaves you with goosebumps: "Am I dreaming, am I just imagining you're here in my mind/Am I dreaming, pinch me to see if it's real 'cause my mind can't decide." A red-light special without vulgarity -- just real, heartfelt emotions.
