"Could I Be Dreaming" by The Pointer Sisters

Song#:  0395
Date:  11/08/1980
Debut:  81
Peak:  52
Weeks:  11
Genre:  Pop, R&B

Pop Bits:  The sisters just had their second Top 3 hit with the #3 "He's So Shy" and the follow-up single was this track from their "Special Things" album. Although this single couldn't hit the Top 50 (and only reached #22 R&B), the previous hit was big enough to make the album reach gold status - their fourth to do so. Since paring down to a trio, this is the first chart song to be co-written by a group member (Anita).

ReduxReview:  This is a nice slick jam that is quite a bit different from the pop of "He's So Shy." The chorus sounds a little jazzy and variety-show-ish, but overall it is a pretty good tune and should have probably been a Top 40 entry.

ReduxRating:  6/10

Trivia:  After the success of their album "Energy," featuring the #2 hit "Fire," the group released the LP "Priority." No singles from the album hit the pop chart and it also fell short of gold status. However, the more rock-oriented album was critically successful and is considered one of the strongest albums in their catalog. They covered songs by rock artists like Bob Seger, Bruce Springsteen, Richard Thompson, and The Rolling Stones.
