“Dreamer” is the third track from Ozzy Osbourne’s album Down to Earth, which was released on October 16, 2001.
The single peaked at number 10 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Tracks. The song describes the rockstar’s vision of people and humanity destroying Earth.
In the liner notes to Osbourne’s Prince of Darkness box set, Ozzy refers to this song as his version of John Lennon’s “Imagine”.
The Japanese and European press of the single also include a slightly different version of the song, dubbed “Dreamer (acoustic)”, and a previously unreleased song titled “Black Skies”.
The video shows Osbourne in two different locations: in a snowy forest, with shades of blue, where children play some instruments that can be heard in the music, such as violin and piano; and in a candlelit building, with shades of red, in which his band are.
The clip was directed by Rob Zombie.
Truly one of the most remarkable human beings to ever walk on planet earth. Man can barely talk due to years of drug abuse, yet makes musical masterpieces for the ages. Many refer to him as the Prince Of Darkness, including himself. However, this particular song is heavenly. So many great hits created over the years by Ozzy, what a talent!
