The song in my dreams sounds familiar. I'm sure that it's a song that I've heard someplace somewhere in time. I could probably sing the words if I wanted to. When I awaken I am usually hearing that song in the dream I was in.
If write it down as soon as I wake up then I can capture the song and its melody is in my mind. I used to be able to think the song over and over throughout several following hours and memorize it, but now I have more distractions. The memorization method works well if you are involved in a long repetitious activity such as mowing a large lawn, driving a long distance alone, or working on an assembly line.
Sometimes the rhythm of the repetitious activity can set the tempo for the music. I replay the song until it's stuck in my head. When I was younger I took the time to do this. Lately I've been waiting for the songs to come. They're there--I remember hearing them. Now I apparently don't pay enough attention to the songs I'm hearing. I can no longer sing them.
Do you hear songs in your dreams? Have you ever written dream songs down? What are the songs like?
