#9 Dream was the second single to be issued from Walls And Bridges, following the surprise success of ‘Whatever Gets You Thru The Night’.

Fittingly, on 22 February 1975 ‘#9 Dream’ peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100. In the UK it was released on 31 January 1975.

That’s what I call craftsmanship writing, meaning, you know, I just churned that out. I’m not putting it down, it’s just what it is, but I just sat down and wrote it, you know, with no real inspiration, based on a dream I’d had.
