    Default Season 389 - Dream On



    If you haven't watched the video, you've probably done the right thing, and not spent two minutes listening to me ramble. But now you need to know that this week is all about DREAMS - any song with "dream" in the title or lyrics, or "nightmare", or even songs which are clearly about dreams even though they don't say the word.

    Originals are very welcome of course.

    Ukulele must feature somewhere.

    Let's start with a limit of four songs each, and see how it goes.

    Here's the Playlist

    The fun starts at 00:01 Hawaii time on Sunday 28th July, and runs until 23:59 Hawaii time on Sunday August 4th.

    And don't forget there is still loads of time to find more gems from Vince Clark/Yazoo/Erasure/Alison Moyet for Del & Lynda's Season 388.

    Hmmm... I've already done three original songs with "dream" in the title for the Seasons, and two more originals that were based on dreams I had. I don't know if I've got anything left in the originals tank, but there's still plenty of untapped covers!

    Excellent theme, Steve ... although, at a quick glance there seem to be far more "dream" than "nightmare" songs, which I suppose is to be expected. I can echo Lynda's nightmares about having to sit an exam I haven't studied for or falling/flying down the stairs .... do we all have the same nightmares? This week should bring up some interesting finds.

    Oh your dreams sound a bit like mine. I often find that I am still at university, and have not been to any lectures at all for a course that I had forgotten about - and the exam is next week. Also, going down steps several at a time, and falling.....But my most recurring one takes place in the shop that my family used to keep, an old building on three floors. I turn a corner and find a whole lot of other rooms that nobody knew about. What does it all mean?

    She dreamed up a hanging tree
    To string her Jolene high
    Disappeared on the 3:10 to Yuma
    No one steals her guy

    Midnight she was a teenage queen
    In the arms of Johnny Cash
    On a rainy night in Georgia
    The Swamp Fox felt her splash

    For a young city girl
    It’s hard to believe
    She only dreams in country
    Her wild geese they duck
    And they weave

    She saw a promissory note
    Pinned to her fridge
    Rearrange itself to
    Spell Tallahatchie Bridge

    She opened up her freezer
    There stood Billy Joe
    Frozen in perpetuity
    For what he’s about to throw

    For a young city girl
    It’s hard to believe
    She only dreams in country
    Her wild geese they duck
    And they weave

    She dreamed up a hanging tree
    To string her Jolene high
    Disappeared on the 3:10 to Yuma
    No one steals her guy
