"Still I Dream of It" is a song written by Brian Wilson for the American rock band The Beach Boys. The song was originally intended to be on the Adult/Child album; when the album was aborted, the song sat in the archives for many years. It was eventually released on the Beach Boys' 1993 box set Good Vibrations: Thirty Years of The Beach Boys as the fourteenth track on disc four. As a solo artist, a demo version of the song was also included on Wilson's 1995 album I Just Wasn't Made for These Times.

British music Barney Hoskyns called the song's pathos "irresistible."[1]



The song has been covered by Ed Harcourt and was released as a limited edition single, it is also found on the Elephant's Graveyard a collection of Harcourt's B-sides and rarities. Jimmy Nail and Carice van Houten have also covered the song.
