"Any Dream Will Do" is a popular song written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice for the 1968 musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. It is generally the beginning and the concluding song of the musical, sung by the title character of Joseph. The song has been sung by numerous performers. In 1969 it was released on the B-side of the 7-inch single We Will Rock You by child singer Christopher. This recording was produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice and arranged by Andrew Lloyd Webber. Joe Cuddy's version was a number one hit in Ireland in 1974. The song was voted Broadway Song of the Year in 1981 and won an Ivor Novello Award in 1991. The song was performed by Jason Donovan, Donny Osmond and Lee Mead at the Concert for Diana on 1 July 2007. It was notably parodied by Irish radio personality Mario Rosenstock in 2005 as "José and his Amazing Technicolor Overcoat", a send-up of then-Chelsea F.C. manager José Mourinho. It was also parodied by a musical duo Amateur Transplants on their first album Fitness to Practice as "Mr Burton". The melody of "Any Dream Will Do" is borrowed from the gospel hymn "Because He Lives."
