"Have You Heard" is a 1969 song by the progressive rock band The Moody Blues. Written by the band's keyboardist Mike Pinder, "Have You Heard" is actually a two-part song, and both parts were recorded and released in 1969 on the Moody Blues Album On the Threshold of a Dream.
Both parts of "Have You Heard" make up two parts of a three-part suite that concludes the album, with the first part beginning the suite and the second part ending it. The second part of this suite is an instrumental song named "The Voyage", which was also composed by Pinder.
This three-part suite is preceded by a short spoken-word prelude called "The Dream". The beginning of "The Dream" somewhat describes a typical nightmare, since the whole album's concept is about dreams. The final line of "The Dream" actually includes the album's title: "Live hand in hand, and together we'll stand on the threshold of a dream." "The Dream" was written by the Moody Blues' drummer Graeme Edge, but was recited in the recording by Pinder himself.
