|Billy Ocean singles chronology|
"Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car" is a single by British singer Billy Ocean, based on a line from Ringo Starr's song "You're Sixteen". Part of its popularity lay in its cutting-edge (for the time) video, which featured cartoon mixed with live-action sequences. The song went to number one on both the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and Hot Black Singles charts. It also peaked at number three on the UK Singles Chart.
The song was also featured in the soundtrack of the 1988 film License to Drive. The song was covered by Fenix TX for the soundtrack of NASCAR Thunder 2003. In 2013, Gwar covered the song in a video featured on The A.V. Club website as part of the site's A.V. Undercover series. Approximately three minutes into the performance, the band incorporates The Who's "Baba O'Riley" into the song. The song is mentioned in a 2014 commercial for Twix Bites.
