Fleetwood Mac's 'Dreams' Reenters Chart After Lip-Synch TikTok Video Takes Off

Fleetwood Mac ’s “Dreams” is turning into a chart hit, again, thanks to a TikTok glimpse of a man longboarding and lip-synching to the song that has become a viral video sensation.

“We love this!” the band tweeted when members came across the footage nearly a week ago.

They’re likely to love it even more now that it’s increasing streams and downloads to the point that the 1977 single looks poised to make a four-decades-later repeat appearance on the charts.

Buzz Angle Music ran the data, and streams for the song rose from 5.2 million last week to 6.7 million in this not-quite-complete chart week.

For the year to date, it’s been streamed 529 million times, so it’s not necessarily that the perennially popular hit was sitting in limbo all this, waiting to be rescued by a man sipping on Ocean Spray Cran-Raspberry Juice while rolling down the street.

Yet it’s one of those phenomena — much like the video of “the twins” responding spontaneously to Phil Collins’ drum break in “In the Air Tonight” — that captivates a country by placing appreciation of the classics in an unexpected context, with the longboarding man’s delayed entry into the lip-synch providing a particular moment of delight.
