After a TikTok where a man lip-syncs to “Dreams” while longboarding and drinking Ocean Spray Cran-Raspberry Juice went viral, Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 classic has seen a massive spike in streams, enough to enter the Rolling Stone Top 100 Songs Chart.
The track, off the band’s 1977 album Rumours, currently sits at Number 29 on the daily version of the RS 100, which ranks the biggest songs in the U.S. by a combination of sales and on-demand audio streams. An official version of the Rolling Stone Top 100 chart is published every Monday.
With over 16 million views on TikTok, doggface208’s viral video — which won the approval of Fleetwood Mac themselves — caused streams for the song to more than double from Saturday through Monday.
