The main reasons for all the acclaim for The-Dream‘s 1977 was his raw emotion and creative storytelling. This should not have been a surprise because of all the awards Dream has already won for his songwriting skills. One of the tracks from 1977 which exhibits both of these traits is also today’s Song of the Day.
“Wake Me When It’s Over” has serious connections to The-Dream’s personal life. Back when 1977 was originally released, Dream had started to open up about his failed marriage with Christina Milian. Through his emotional back and forth from positive to negative, “Wake Me When It’s Over” is a work of art. Not only does this track portray Dream’s own breakup but paints a portrait for many others as well.
