Do me a favor
Tell me what you think about me
Tell me how you want this to be
Go out on a limb and just dream

Paint a picture
Choose your colors extra wise
Especially what you put on my mind
Imagine what it'd be like to touch the sky, yeah yeah

Whoa-oh
Your thoughts are gonna pick me up
Do you know
it's good to feel too much?

Oh, you've got my head in the clouds
Oh, you've got me thinking out loud
The more you dream about me, the more that I believe
That nothing's ever out of reach, so dream, dream, dream

I breathe your visions
They pull me through the coldest of nights
They steer me towards that moment in time
When you show me what it means to you to be mine, yeah

Whoa-oh
Your giving me the will to try
Do you know
That there's happy in these eyes?

Oh, you've got my head in the clouds
Oh, you've got me thinking out loud
The more you dream about me, the more that I believe
That nothing's ever out of reach, so dream, dream, dream

Ha, it's like my birthday
Every time you look at me
it's like the best day
Every time that you dream, yeah, yeah

Whoa-oh
Your thoughts are gonna pick me up
Do you know
it's good to feel too much? Much?

Oh, you've got my head in the clouds
Oh, you've got me thinking out loud
The more you dream about me, the more that I believe
That nothing's ever out of reach, so dream, dream, dream
Dream, yeah

The more you dream about me, the more that I believe
That nothing's ever out of reach so dream, dream, dream
Dream...

- "The Memory of Trees" by Enya makes me think of Memory Forest, for obvious reasons.

- "The Tide is High" by Blondie makes me think of Splash Garden

- "This is What Dreams are Made of" By Hillary Duff makes me think of Twin Seeds/NiGHTS

There are more, but I just remember these off the top of my head.

"Dreams Are More Precious" by Enya, in her (I think) newest album, And Winter Came... Especially the last half of the song, it's something that NiGHTS could say.

"Rebel Heart" by The Corrs. No lyrics, but sounds spirited. It gives me an impression of someone who keeps on being themselves in spite of hardship.

"I'm Gonna Fly" by Amy Grant. Describes NiGHTS's philosophy very well. :)

"Closer" by The Corrs. It's not necessarily the lyrics that remind me of NiGHTS (I mean, it's even a little stalker-ish XD), but the...oh, what do I call it? The tune that it plays in-between the refrain and the next verses, and a lot at the end, it's one of the most beautiful, dreamlike tunes I've ever heard. I often find it popping into my head when I think of a deep dream or one in which I felt very close to NiGHTS.

Mark Bell did a remix track of Delton 3030's Turbulence. Click this link to go to the youtube video and go to 0:57 and tell me that that doesn't remind you of Gloom of the NHC from NiD's Mystic Forest.

Also at 1:34 of the Turbulence remix tell me that doesn't remind you of Streets of Rage. The song seriously fills me with nostalgia and it wasn't even trying to.

"Dream" by Forest For The Trees always made me think of NiD. It came out months after the game did, I think, and was the only song from that group I ever heard, which might have made it seem more unique.

Sweet Sweet Sweet by DREAMS COME TRUE. This song was for Sonic '06, but I can't help but think and be reminded of NiGHTS.

Dreams of an Absolution by Lee Brotherton. Ehehe, another Sonic '06 song. Silver the Hedgehog's theme. You can't help but think of NiGHTS maybe singing this to a Dreamer. I always imagine him singing to Sonic, Shadow and Silver. ^ ^;

King of Lullaby by Effiel69. This is a given. :I

Lucky by Lucky Twice. I don't know why, but it reminds me of NiGHTS, Reala and Jackle.

hey guys in case you don't know i'm a poet in college and soon to be full time poet after college. i looked up a recent show i went to and i found this video of one of my favorite poets performing a poem with music behind it. it DEFINITELY reminds me of splash garden and soft museum, 2 of my favorite levels/songs. i love the feeling he captures and it really does reflect the elan and uplifting attitude of NiD

Oooh, so many songs to look up when I get home! 8D

Let's see, off the top of my head without checking my FayePod or Youtube while I'm at work... XD

~ "Beautiful Nightmare" - Beyonce. VERY YES, which surprised the heck outta me! I think of NiGHTS and Reala...

~ "King of Lullaby" - Eiffel 65. I'm sooo glad I'm not the only one! ^^

~ "Mind's Eye" - James Reynolds. Very ethereal and beautiful, and with a lovely flute harmonizing throughout! I always think of NiGHTS in a big, leafy tree on a hilltop in the afternoon sun... *contented sigh*

~ "These Dreams" - Heart. 80s-TASTIC BABY. The lyrics suit my dreaming self to a tee. ^^;

~ "I Lived On The Moon" - Kwoon. The lyrics are very poetic, and describe dreams as a means of protecting yourself against those who would attempt to drag you down. Strong personal ties with this one. <3

~ "Sphere" - Simon Collins. Just the title makes me think of ideya! XD

Too many...

The newest one that makes me think of NiGHTS is an Estonian song called "Unes või ilmsi" ("In Dreams or Reality") by Hylene. (If you like dance music, you can hear it here. But the video is a little spicy.)

Translation:

Only a moment and then you're gone again
You're a riddle to me, do you hear?
Every dark night you're in my mind
When dawn comes, you're gone again
Only in dreams it seems so clear...

I'll be silent about everything,
Let the secret be mine...
You don't need to know about it
Again in silence my voice repeats:
I only belong to you
In dreams or in reality you are good just the same

If I see you tomorrow
Then I won't say to you
How madly i think only about you
I fear to lose you
Only in dreams it seems so clear...

True Colors, by Phil Collins. I know it's not his song but his cover of it is really nice. Always makes me think of NiGHTS. My 'NiGHTS song', as i say.

Aaahh True Colors! I love how Cyndi Lauper sings it! X3 Hmm... yes, that song is very NiGHTS...

And just because I wanna add it real quick:

~ The Child Inside - Qkumba Zoo. Seriously, you MUST listen to it if you haven't already! Kudos to Dreams for telling me about them! :D

Indeed, Cyndi Lauper's version is very nice too. Lol, she has a very NiGHTSy voice in that song.

The Phil Collins version, i think it's the melody that plays between each verse and chorus that makes me think of NiGHTS. What instrument is being played? Is it the bagpipes? I can never tell my instrumentals apart, lol.
It's the instrument playing as the song starts too --> video here

Agreed. :) Qkumba Zoo/QZoo is very much NiGHTS music... highly recommended for anyone who hasn't heard them, both their albums. Dreamy, imaginative music... and the only two videos they made have awesome visuals.

Their other video: Cloud Eyes.

"Cloud eyes in a silver sky
Where the moon flies like a paraglider lost in your mind
Cloud eyes in a dream flight
Let your wings slide across the moon into the dark side..."

For me, it would have to be the dance song "Sweet Dreams" sung by La Bouche. I think it's from the 1990s. When I was just becoming a NiGHTS fan late 1997, I heard it for the first (and only) time on the radio, and now I forever associate this song with NiGHTS flying. It's still like that, only now NiGHTS is flying with Reala... :) Well, yeah.

Sweet dreams of rhythm and dancin'
Sweet dreams of passion through the night
Sweet dreams are taking over,
Sweet dreams of dancin' through the niiiight!


I realize that the lyrics suggest more about dancing than dreaming, but the techno style of the song makes me think of NiGHTS flying in the night sky. After twelve years I found the song and downloaded it from iTunes. Now Reala chases after NiGHTS for some reason. Maybe it's the "sweet dreams are taking over..." :P
I have three versions of this song (including La Bouche) in my Dream Pod iPod.

There's some track named Trickster Spirit, by Marc Peterson. I don't seem to find the website where I found it, tho. It has a light acoustic guitar tune, quite relaxing, it's like soaring in that sky of Spring Valley.

"Somewhere Up Above" by April March is very NiGHTS-y to me for some reason that I'm not entirely sure of. The album "Triggers" forgoes the usual 60s French pop feel of her earlier ablums and instead is a very dreamy cross between electronic and acoustic instruments. It really has to be heard.

The song and a video.

Very unlikely songs for reminder of NiGHTS are for me...

. UltraViolet- The Stiff Dylans (It made me think of UV NiGHTS instantly!)

. Stop Crying your heart out - Leona Lewis

. Hoppipolla - Sigur Ros

. The Dreams under the sun- (I have no idea who it's by!)

Here are a few that sort of remind me of a few places/characters from NiGHTS:

"Evil Eyes" (which is sang by Nobutoshi Kanna)- I don't see why, but this song reminds me of Reala in some of the lyrics (link to song w/English translation in vid (the only way I could find translation of this song); )

"Believe in Heaven" (sung by Shinichirou Miki/Katsuhiko Kawamoto)- This particular song reminds me of NiGHTS, the dreamers, and a few of the other Nightmaren (link to song's translated lyrics: http://www.animelyri....einheaven.html)

"Kawaranai Mono (Unchanging Things)" (sung by Oku Hanako)- This song in particular reminds me of both NiGHTS and the Dreamers, since some of the lyrics can relate to both in many cases. (Song's lyrics (both in Romanji and English); http://www.animelyri...aranaimono.html, Song in video (probably one of only a few that doesn't include audio from the movie that the song appears in); )

I think a lot of things Owl City does is very fitting with NiGHTS, I think that it is because his themes are usually about dreams/a paradise/Someone (this could be ether a lover or God, sometimes it's obvious other times it's left to the listener's interpretation)
I like to think that the paradises are Nightopia and the person is NiGHTS/another dreamer and the following songs seem to fit the most with NiGHTS, even to the point that it's hard to believe that it is coincidence that it fits well.
-Strawberry Avalanche
-Fireflies
-Meteor Shower (my personal favourite)
-Umbrella Beach
-Tip of the Iceberg
-Allagator Sky
-Hello Seattle
-On the wing
-Tidal Wave
-Vanilla Twilight

I also think Bentley Jones' cover of Seven rings in hand was wasted on Sonic, it fits NiGHTS more. I wish Bentley Jones could have done something for NiGHTS, that would have been so awesome.
The song Comprachios by Pendulum does remind me a lot of Reala and his fight against NiGHTS.
