"Get Outta My Dreams, Get into My Car" is a 1988 single by Trinidadian-British singer Billy Ocean, based on a line in the Sherman Brothers' song (famously covered by Johnny Burnette as well as Ringo Starr) "You're Sixteen". Part of its popularity lay in its cutting-edge (for the time) video, which featured animation mixed with live-action sequences. The song went to number one on both the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and Hot Black Singles charts.[2] It also peaked at number three on the UK Singles Chart.[3]

The song was also featured on the soundtrack of the 1988 film License to Drive. The song was covered by Fenix TX for the soundtrack of NASCAR Thunder 2003. In 2013, Gwar covered the song in a video featured on The A.V. Club website as part of the site's A.V. Undercover series. Approximately three minutes into the performance, the band incorporates The Who's "Baba O'Riley" into the song. The song is mentioned in a 2014 TV commercial for Twix Bites. It appears in a 2018 commercial for Applebee's.[4]

The song was also parodied by comedian and actor Jason Sudeikis as 80's fake singer Ocean Billy in the Worst of Soul Train sketch on Saturday Night Live with the title Get Out Of My Car, Get Into My Trunk.[5]

The short but notable saxophone solo is by Vernon Jeffrey Smith.[6]
