|Crystal Gayle singles chronology|
"Talking in Your Sleep" was the second single released by Country-Pop crossover singer, Crystal Gayle, to become a hit on both the country and pop charts. It was a hit in 1978. It peaked at number one on the US Country chart, number eighteen on the US Pop chart and number three at the US Adult Contemporary chart.
In 1977, Gayle achieved international crossover Pop success for the first time with her No. 1 hit "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue". Following the song's success, Gayle was recording more Pop and Adult Contemporary-styled Country tunes, and never looked back. This song is one of the first examples of this. "Talking in Your Sleep" was released in early 1978, and was a hit mid-year. The song proved an instant follow-up for Gayle on the Pop charts, being she hadn't had another Top 40 Pop hit since "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue" the previous year.
"Talking in Your Sleep" was released on Gayle's major-selling album from that year called When I Dream. Following "Talking in Your Sleep"'s success as a crossover smash, Gayle only achieved one more Top 40 Pop hit as a solo artist, which came the next year with the song, "Half the Way".
