About Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me

"Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me" is a song by the English rock band the Smiths. Released in December 1987, it reached No. 30 in the UK Singles Chart. It was the last of three UK singles from the band's fourth and final studio album, Strangeways, Here We Come. The album version contains a one-minute and 55-second introduction, consisting of piano playing against a backdrop of crowd noises from the miners' strike of 1984–85. The 7" single release does not include the introduction, while the 12" single does. At different times, both Johnny Marr and Morrissey have cited it as being their favourite song of the Smiths'.

But it goes on 

Oh, goes on
And on 
Oh, goes on 
And on
