Billy Ocean – Get Outta My Dreams, Get into My Car (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 17th January 2018

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

“Get Outta My Dreams, Get into My Car” is a 1988 single by Trinidadian-born British singer Billy Ocean, based on a line in the Sherman Brothers’ song (famously covered by Johnny Burnette as well as Ringo Starr) “You’re Sixteen”. Part of its popularity lay in its cutting-edge (for the time) video, which featured cartoon mixed with live-action sequences. The song went to number one on both the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and Hot Black Singles charts. It also peaked at number three on the UK Singles Chart.

The song was also featured on the soundtrack of the 1988 film License to Drive. The short but notable saxophone solo is by Vernon Jeffrey Smith.
