TEACH ME HOW TO DREAM

from ONE LIFE TO LIVE: THE BEST OF LOVE

written by David Foster & Dean Pitchford

Teach Me How To Dream” was an evocative ballad co-written in the early nineties by David Foster with Dean Pitchford for the soundtrack of the action/comedy movie, If Looks Could Kill. Foster’s amazing ability to craft a power ballad was enhanced on this collaboration with Pitchford, a celebrated pop/adult contemporary songwriter in his own right with hit co-writes including Irene Cara’s Academy Award winner “Fame,” Kenny Loggins’ “Footloose,” Bonnie Tyler’s “Holding Out For A Hero” and Deniece Williams’ “Let’s Hear It For The Boy.” “Teach Me How To Dream” was produced by Foster with vocals by noted rock singer Robin McAuley.
