Great Unknown Songs #15 – Roger Hodgson “Had a Dream”

The main voice of Supertramp, Roger Hodgson released his first solo album “In the Eye of the Storm” in 1984. It was cut in the months between the release of Supertramp’s “…Famous Last Words…” (that Roger was still in) and it’s supporting tour, and mixed during Supertramp rehearsals for the tour in hopes of fitting in some solo promotion while on the road.


However, at the last minute Hodgson had second thoughts about the album’s quality and decided to scrap it, planning to record a new and better album after his last tour with Supertramp.

The album’s first single was the four-minute edit of “Had a Dream (Sleeping With the Enemy)”, which peaked at number 48 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also enjoyed success in Australia, hitting number 23 on the Album Charts as “Had a Dream (Sleeping with the Enemy)” peaked at number 21.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
