A beautiful Christmas gift – Sweet Snow the way it should have been! ;)

29 December; Author: TRiPPY


 

Those of us who bought Journey of Dreams a couple of years ago pretty much can all agree that the Sweet Snow version of DREAMS DREAMS is incredibly beautiful and like eating the best kind of icecream while drowning in 90ft of deep nostalgia and not caring. What made that song so special (other than just sounding ultimately pretty!) was the fact that the original girl who sang the song as a child – Jasmine Ann Allen, returned to sing the song once more as an adult. We all thought of her as the Claris of the song and tried to sing along as best we could as kids ourselves, lol.

But there was another equally important part to DREAMS DREAMS that Sweet Snow unfortunately missed out on. That was … Cameron Strother.

Cameron Strother was the Elliot Edwards to Jasmine's Claris and thanks to the wonderful Joshua Goring and Cameron himself we have a truely magical gift for you all.

Merry Christmas, happy 15th and a brilliant new year everyone!

Dreamers reunited! :)
 

I was very young when I first heard and sang this song. I'm not sure how many years ago it was now but it seems like I  recorded it a year or two before NiGHTS was released. It was my first paid singing job. I was paid a handsome sum (didn't mean much to a kid) and was given an armful of Sega Saturn games (meant the world). More than the money or even the games though, I remember the special feeling I got when visited the Sega HQ building. Video games were my chocolate so I felt like I was walking around Willy Wonka's factory, witnessing a magical process. 

I remember seeing the early plans for a game that was supposed to replace Sonic the Hedgehog as Sega's new flagship series. I was supposed to keep quiet about it but I told all my Japanese school friends about this amazing new game that was coming out and how I had seen the secret last boss. Suffice to say, It was an awesome experience and it holds a very special place in my childhood memories and I was glad to revisit that happy time by singing Dreams Dreams again. I myself am a big NiGHTS fan and I'm still holding out for a proper sequel or at least a good re-release for the current generation of consoles. 


Thanks for keeping NiGHTS alive!

    This is actually really beautiful, nice to see both kids grew up to be great singers! Wonderful that they came back to do the song again too, here's hoping to a happy new year : )

    This was beautiful. I've listened to this twice so far. It's nice to hear these two on the same track again. I'm sure it's gonna be hard listening to the original Sweet Snow mix now without feeling like something's missing from it.

  4. I agree with everything above 100%. It is so heart-warming to me seeing all the people who are affected by NiGHTS.All the things he's done for people and the joy he's brought into their lives. What I love even more, is seeing people thanking NiGHTS in ways like this. Sweet Dreams.

    Incredible! It made me go into a trance. I closed my eyes, lay on the couch and listened more than 5 times. Thank you for giving me this gift. Happy New Year to all friends of the site. 
     
    NiGHTS forever!

    Wow…. this is one game that just won't be forgotten. It just amazes me with how fast life moves, and how fast the world and technology is evolving, but this game takes its own time and just blossoms into a game that just melts your heart. Honestly, anytime I think about Nights, I think about how stupid I thought the game was because I didn't understand what I had to do! When I finally read the manual, and played the game properly, heart was blown.

    T vT so beautiful. Is it weird that I had like, a weird proud mom moment? Back then, they were so little, so cute, singing the singing with a bit of a lisp/accent which I thought was so precious. And now, oh god when that boy opened his mouth I was hit in the face with awesome. We grew up with those kids, whether we realized it or not we did and I just… oh man the tears ;; v;;. Such a wonderful gift at such a good time. How is it that this fandom always has the best timing and cheers me up at the right moments???

    Thank you for posting this. I am Cameron's mother and I just heard this for the first time. I do so love his voice, and for all you out there who have never met him, you would love him as a person as I do, if you had the chance. All his goodness comes out in his voice. Thank you all for your appreciation of his talent. I wish you all well.

    Finding this in 2018 and just in awe of how this all came together. I just want to share this complete version with everyone I know. So beautiful.
