Tori re-recorded "Sweet Dreams" for her greatest hits collection Tales of a Librarian in 2003.

Live performances Edit

"Sweet Dreams" was first performed during the 1994 Under the Pink Tour and has been played on many of Tori's tours since, both solo and with a band.[3] The song was performed by the character Isabel during the American Doll Posse World Tour in 2007.
