"Dream of Me (Based on Love's Theme)" is a song by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark and the second single released from their album Liberator. The song uses a sample from "Love's Theme", a 1973 instrumental piece recorded by Barry White's Love Unlimited Orchestra. It was remixed by Gregg Jackman for single release.

Billboard, in a positive review, wrote: "['Dream of Me'] is a sparkling pop bauble that will have you twirling back in time to your favorite disco memories. The tune itself is pretty and engaging, well-served by Andy McCluskey's warmly familiar voice."[1]
