"I Like Dreamin'" is the title of a North American hit single by Kenny Nolan, taken from his eponymous debut album. The recording was issued as the album's lead single in October 1976, spending 27 weeks on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. It slowly crawled to number three on both that chart as well as the Cash Box Top 100 by early March 1977. The song became a Gold record.

"I Like Dreamin'" was an equally large hit in Canada, where it peaked at number three on the Pop Singles chart and was also a number-one hit on the Adult Contemporary chart.

The song tells about a man who dreams about an apparently unattainable woman with whom he shares intimate moments, a romantic walk on a beach and, as their love grows, children. He likes these dreams but, of course, always wakes to find that his longed-for lover is "just not there".
