"(This Is) The Dream of Evan and Chan" is a song by Dntel (Jimmy Tamborello), featuring the vocals and lyrics by Ben Gibbard. The song was recorded for the album Life Is Full of Possibilities in 2001. "Evan and Chan" was so well-received[no citations needed here] that the two collaborated on a full-length album, Give Up, which they released as The Postal Service in 2003.

There is some speculation on who the title characters Evan and Chan are in the context of the song; some have suggested that given the lyrical reference to 1993, and Tamborello's instructions to pronounce Chan as "Chawn", Evan Dando of The Lemonheads and Chan Marshall (also known as Cat Power) might be the Evan and Chan from the title.

The song title inspired the Final Fantasy song "This Is the Dream of Win and Régine" that appears on Has a Good Home.[no citations needed here]
