Dreams" is a song by Irish rock band the Cranberries. It was released in 1992 as the band's debut single, later appearing on the studio album Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We? A 1990 version was released in Ireland only in the summer of that year. It reached the top 40 on the US Hot 100 Airplay and the top 30 on the UK Singles Chart in early 1994.

Along with "Linger" and "Zombie," the Cranberries performed this at Woodstock '94. The festival version of "Dreams" was included on the Woodstock 1994 album. An acoustic cover version with strings and piano was used in a 2017 animated commercial for the University of Phoenix where a mother loses her job but becomes an IT professional after taking online classes. The Voice UK 2018 champion Ruti covered this as her winner's single.

Linger (оригинал The Cranberries). Затянется (перевод sogra из Усть-Каменогорска). If you, if you could return. Если бы, если б ты мог вернуться! Don't let it burn, don't let it fade. Не жги мосты, не дай всему пропасть. I'm sure I'm not being rude. Do you have to let it linger. Неужели это затянется? You know I'm such a fool for you. Знаешь, я без ума от тебя. You got me wrapped around your finger. Ты подчинил меня своей воле. Неужели теперь так будет всегда? Do you have to, do you have to.

Neither the album nor the single gained much attention, nor did the second single, "Linger. In the summer and fall of 1993, the band toured the United States, opening for The The and Suede, respectively; frequently, the Cranberries were given a friendlier reception than either of the headliners. The strong live shows led MTV to put "Linger" into heavy rotation. Nevertheless, the rumors persisted until the Cranberries began recording their next album with producer Bruce Fairbairn, who had previously worked with Aerosmith. The resulting album, To the Faithful Departed, was a tougher, more rock-oriented album. Upon its spring 1996 release, the album entered the charts at number six, but its first single, "Salvation," failed to become a hit on par with "Zombie," "Linger," or "Ode to My Family.
