In Your Wildest Dreams is the title track of the album Wildest Dreams, released as the second single in America and the last one in Europe. The different formats includes several remixed versions from DJ’s like Pink Noise and Deep Dish.

The original music video features claymation versions of Tina and Barry White in comical situations with cameos by Antonio Banderas and Wallace and Gromit. Unfortunately, because Barry White did not agree with this version, it was only shown for a short time and was then replaced with a live video, taken from Tina’s concert at the Amsterdam Arena.

The second single from Turner’s current „Wildest Dreams“ set pits her feline purr against White’s seductive growl on top of a slow and shuffling funk groove. Jeepmeister Joe refuels the Anglo-leaning album version with a hip-hop flavor that renders it a viable radio contender, while Deep Dish reinvents the song as a silky house music journey that could even make the grade with popsters. The single also features Turner’s duet with Antonio Banderas, which previously was only available in the U.K. This version is actually a bit sexier, riddled with ear-grabbing electro-pop riffs. Check out both versions and pick your fave.

Wallace and Gromit creators on the rise ….. the company recently returned to the music video business with Tina Turner’s „In Your Wildest Dreams,“ featuring Barry White. The single peaked at No. 34 on the Billboard Hot R&B singles chart in January. But the clip rarely has been seen because White didn’t care for the clay model of himself in the video. „Tina wanted us to do the video based on seeing Wallace And Gromit,“ says Sproxton. „She loved the video, but it was heavily censored because of White's objections.“
