More than 40 years after it topped Billboard's Hot 100, "Dreams" by Fleetwood Mac has become a hit again. The song from their 1977 landmark album Rumours has reached No. 16 on the Hot Rock Songs chart thanks to a viral tweet.
According to Billboard, it started on March 22, when a user called @bottlefleet tweeted "'Fleetwood Mac’s music is so boring, you can’t even dance to it.' Me, an intellectual:" The user included a video of the Golden Girls dance line of Alcorn State University, a historically black school in Lorman, Miss., with "Dreams" playing over it. Since then, the tweet has earned more than 310,000 likes and more than 130,000 retweets.
