#9 Dream was the second single to be issued from Walls And Bridges, following the surprise success of ‘Whatever Gets You Thru The Night’.
That was a bit of a throwaway. It was based on some dream I had.
All We Are Saying, David Sheff
In the USA the ‘#9 Dream’ single had been released on 16 December 1974. Fittingly, on 22 February 1975 it peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100.
In the United Kingdom it had the catalogue number Apple R 6003. It charted on 8 February, peaked at number 23, and spent a total of eight weeks on the charts.
