"Dreamboat Annie" is a song written and recorded by the rock band Heart. It is the title track from their debut album Dreamboat Annie and was released as its third single in 1976. The song had originally appeared as the B-side to Heart's debut single "Crazy on You" earlier that year.
There are three different versions of the song "Dreamboat Annie" on the Dreamboat Annie album:
- Track 2 - "Dreamboat Annie (Fantasy Child)" - 1:10
- Track 5 - "Dreamboat Annie" - 2:02
- Track 10 - "Dreamboat Annie (Reprise)" - 3:50
The version released on the single was listed on the 45 as 2:59 but was actually around 2:40. It is not included on the album. The single is a variation of Track 5, with the intro to "Crazy On You" grafted onto the beginning of the single. This version remains unreleased on any Heart album. It's assumed this was done to increase the playing time of the single to the more standard 3 minute format.
"Dreamboat Annie" became Heart's third U.S. chart entry, peaking at number forty-two on the Billboard Hot 100. Being markedly softer in sound than the other singles Heart had released previously, the song was also Heart's first entry onto the U.S. Adult Contemporary singles chart, where it reached number seventeen (Heart's highest-charting AC hit until "These Dreams" in 1986).
