I hear music and sounds in my dreams somewhat often, usually ambiance.
Usually i dont really remember my dreams, but i can hear music before dreaming, especially if i didnt slept for about 24 hours or more.
This shit is spooky as fuck
The one time in my life I have heard music in my dream was the song FIRST DAWN, AMBER WIND by Alstroemeria Records. It was 'playing' so loud that I think it caused me to wake up, although the room was completely silent when I did.
I love my dream music, though it is rare. I often hear synth or rock music and it's always the most bestest thing that ever resonated in my brain. Once I wake up however, it's incredibly hard to recall even the basic melody or instrumentation.
I sometimes hear music from whatever video game i played before i go to bed. I've experimented with this by playing yume nikki, earthbound, LSD dream emulator, etc. one experience i had was when i was in a neon city similar to moonside from earthbound and i could hear moonside swing faintly playing. it was awesome. of course, this probably means i play WAY too much video games…
Only one time that I can remember, it was a song "created" by me. Nothing interesting, I was dreaming that I was streaming music on youtube but after I woke up I realised that the song doesn't actually exist.
I remember hearing Libera me from hell with muffled, untuned and roughed out instruments once. I don't remember in what context and backdrop it was in though. I hear music pretty often in my dreams, often ambient scores or the music of the devil.
i've heard some eurobeat music in my dreams. Makes it feel really upbeat, i don't usually remember the dreams or the songs though, but i just know i heard 'em, if that makes sense.
next time lay off the coffee
I regularly hear original riffs in my head when I wake up, but that might be because I also work on music for fun a lot. Sometimes a riff is so profoundly good, it actually wakes me up and I record it as fast as I can.
Sometimes, though, it is real music I've heard. I saw The Drunken Master for the first time a month ago, and a week ago, I woke up with the training music from it in my head. It took me a few hours, though, to remember it was from The Drunken Master.
