1984 Dan Hartman – I Can Dream About You

I Can Dream About You is the fifth studio album from American musician/singer/songwriter Dan Hartman, released by MCA in 1984. It was produced by Hartman and Jimmy Iovine.

I Can Dream About You was Hartman’s debut album for MCA Records and marked the first album to feature Hartman’s longtime songwriting partner Charlie Midnight, who he would continue to write with throughout the rest of the decade. Hartman and Midnight wrote eight out of the ten tracks together, with the title track being written solely by Hartman, and the album’s closing track, “Electricity”, being written by Hartman and Nona Hendryx.
