"Dreaming" is a song by British band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark released in 1988 as a single from their compilation album, The Best of OMD. It was the last single before the band split-up, with only Andy McCluskey to carry on working under the OMD banner, and not releasing another record for three years.

While not overly successful in the UK (where it barely made the top 50), the song was the band's second most successful chart entry on the US Billboard Hot 100, reaching #16.

The cover art was designed by Stylorouge, with photography by Andrew Catlin.[2]

B-sides

All the single versions include "Satellite" as a B-side. The other B-side, "Gravity Never Failed", was a bonus track on the CD single. This song was originally titled "Georgia" and dates back to the 1981 Architecture & Morality sessions. However, the band lost their favour with the song and was thus shelved, and the title "Georgia" was given to a new song and featured on the album.
