The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “dream.”

~~~~~~~~~~

Yes, when I found out this week’s theme, the first song in my head was the massive hit by the Eurythmics. However, it was quickly pushed aside by a lesser known song which has been a favorite of mine for a quarter of a century. (Think I just dated myself there! 😀 )

Regina Belle is best known for A Whole New World (Alladin’s Theme), her 1993 Grammy-winning duet with Peabo Bryson. Released in late 1992, the song reached number one in March of 1993, knocking Whitney Houston and the colossal I Will Always Love You from is 14-week reign.

Yet, with credentials like that, I feel Regina Belle has been underrated for most of her career. While A Whole New World was riding the charts, Regina’s third album, Passion was released. It only reached #63 on the Billboard 200 and #13 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, good compared to some (all albums below hers), but a travesty to me.

The album (available on Spotify) includes twelve solid songs which showcase Regina Bell’s range, including Dream in Color, a song about being tired of settling, and living life to its fullest.

Enjoy!

  1. I absolutely love this song and Regina Belle! I had forgotten about them both and am so glad you got us reacquainted! There is such a great story in these lyrics and her vocal range just makes it that much better. Thanks so much for sharing this.

  2. Reblogged this on Abbie's Corner of the World and commented:
    In 1985 when I discovered public radio, I quit paying attention to the popular music scene, so I never heard this song until now. I like the idea it expresses that you should capture a dream, no matter what. I hope you young people out there who aren’t sure what to do with your lives will take this song to heart.
