Song / Beyond Your Wildest Dreams
Lonnie Gordon / Beyond Your Wildest Dreams
"Beyond Your Wildest Dreams" is a ballad written by British hitmaking team Stock Aitken & Waterman, which was recorded by three of their artists, Lonnie Gordon, Sybil, and Nancy Davis. The songwriters have cited this song as one of the best they ever wrote, and were dissatisfied with its poor chart performance.
Gordon and Sybil's versions were released as singles. Nancy Davis recorded the song in 1992, and so far it remains unreleased.
The song was written for Lonnie Gordon, and was released as the follow-up to her breakthrough top 10 hit "Happenin' All Over Again". Initially the follow-up single was going to be another song, the uptempo "How Could He Do This To Me", however disagreements with the label led to a change of the single choice and "Beyond Your Wildest Dreams" was released instead.
These disagreements created a delay on the release of the single and it was finally released in August 1990, seven months after "Happenin' All Over Again" had entered the UK charts. The song peaked at #48 in the UK charts. Reasons for this failure may have been the long gap between singles, which may have died off public interest in Gordon, and also the fact that she released a ballad, when the public was expecting a song more in the vein of her first hit.
"Beyond Your Wildest Dreams" was included on Gordon's 1991 debut album If I Have to Stand Alone.
