"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 describes the dreams of a man who fantasizes about how enjoyable life and family will be with his love. While he very much likes dreaming, he also wishes that his dreams will soon materialize into reality.
