Is there anything wrong with being a dreamer? Sarantos is mostly a positive person. That does not mean that the normal wear and tear of life’s work doesn’t have a toll sometimes. Everyone has good days and bad days. Sarantos might have a tendency, though, to routinely fantasize about dreams coming true. Friends and family have been known to tease and mock Sarantos, saying, “his head is always in the clouds.” Phrases like “you’re such a dreamer” find their way to Sarantos’ ears on a regular basis. So, in response to friends and family, Sarantos decided to write a song called “Dreamer.”
There is an honest acknowledgment in the lyrics that maybe Sarantos is, in fact, a dreamer but there is also a question that oozes sarcasm – “How’d you figure that out?” The end result is a carefree song that parallels Sarantos’ humble nature. Yes, Sarantos is a dreamer but who cares? Why is that so wrong? If a dreamer doesn’t bother or hurt anyone and fulfills all of the life’s obligations and duties, why would anyone have a problem with dreaming the dream?
This is a song about being a dreamer,” says Sarantos. “This is a carefree rock song about a man who has always been a dreamer ever since he was a little boy. He likes to dream about that perfect life. Why is he such a dreamer? Well, the cryptic point of the song is – who cares? Like myself, the character just is a dreamer. He’s an optimistic and positive person who is always dreaming about the things he wants. And why shouldn’t he? I’ve been taunted many times for being a dreamer, so I thought I should finally do the insult justice and write a song about it! I guess if that’s the worse thing my family and friends can say about me, I’ll gladly wear that as a badge of honor. I’ll take the condemnation as I keep pushing forward with this old dream of mine….”
Sarantos’ unique sound has been best described by industry insiders as “an emotionally powerful vocal style masterfully united with music that is a fusion of classic ’80s rock blended with modern soft rock and pop music.”
Since 2014, Sarantos has won over 25 awards with Akademia LA Music and Beat 100, while also being nominated for the International Music & Entertainment Awards and the Hollywood Songwriting Awards. Even without ever using a professional music studio, label, ad agency or radio promoters, Sarantos’ song, “What If I Never See You Again,” was in the top 200 on the major lists in the US for radio airplay, according to the Digital Radio Tracker Top 200 charts. On the independent charts, Sarantos was in the top 10. He was on both of these lists for most of 2015!
33% of any music-related sales profits from this song are going straight to St. Jude. St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
