JOHN STEWART MUSIC CELEBRATION PROTOTYPE CONCERT — “Heart of the Dream” — Music Video

Heart-of-the-Dream-Title-Card

John Stewart’s rocker, “Heart of the Dream,” could well be considered the yang to his “California Bloodlines” yin. While “Bloodlines” celebrates the emotional and spiritual qualities the State arouses in people, “Dream,” looks at its darker side underneath the beauty of the land and its people, particularly those who live in the song’s heart: Malibu.

While the song is a celebration of the area it also reminds us of that evil comes with it in the guise of government and corporations who take advantage. More importantly, Stewart tells us that he (and we) are just as guilty for coveting a never-ending– nor fulfilling–stream of sex, money and possessions.

Although “Heart of the Dream” was recorded 25 years ago and first released on Stewart’s “Bombs Away Dream Babies” album, it is just as relevant, if not more so, today.
