Anyone ever get this? I've asked people before, some said they do and others thought I was a bit mental, I think it's a combination of both.

Most people will probably relate to the waking up with a song they haven't heard in ages stuck in their head for some reason. I get this now and then and it's always something really obscure that I haven't heard much or in a long time, sometimes it's a tune I don't even recognise.

Sometimes I'll wake up and there's just this word or thought in my head. I thought it might be dream related, wake up thinking about the last thing you were thinking about in your dream or something, but this isn't always the case.

The other day I woke up with the word enameled in my head...and I kinda thought about it on my way to work, and how odd it is to have such an obscure word so prominent in your thoughts first thing in the morning after a sound sleep. I think that's probably the strangest one ever, I just find it kinda interesting and wanted to share it...you guys get this?

It seems to be more words as I get older than music, sometimes it's a phrase of some kind, not necessarily a common phrase, just a few words in a specific order that often don't fit together.

As an aside, I've also had the voices chattering on falling asleep, they often sound like whispers, but loud whispers...and once or twice a sudden raised and angry voice has screamed and woke me up, this only ever happened to me as I was falling asleep and I'm getting a chill down my spine even thinking about it, it's absolutely horrible.

I remember having this killer crazy melody in my head. Actually, it wasn't even a melody. It was a full instrumental. It was so beautiful... so beautiful I forgot it. When I woke up I tried to record it on my voice recorder but I was so groggy I couldn't get the melody out. Well, at that time, I assumed I had gotten the melody correct but when I woke up hours later, it was just a bunch of 'grrs' and 'mrrs' lol.

Yes, I often wake up with a song in my head.

I never was able to figure out the "why's" and some days I find it very irritating because it won't go away for an hour or so.

It doesn't always come out as a song, sometimes it is just a jingle or something from a tv commercial.

Never bothered to inquire to anyone, just figured it was some weird 'quirk' in me, but I am curious what someone else might say about this.

That reminded me of a dream I had some years ago, I was in a house, but it was really colourful, almost pixelated like I was in a computer game, but it looked like I was in someones living room, the walls were red and there was furniture and bookcases, etc.

And this crazy and booming music playing, it was amazing and seemed amazingly loud, but I didn't recognise it at all. Then it was like a crackly and slightly muffled but really loud voice started to talk, I don;t know what it was saying but it was kinda scary and woke me up.

Most of my pre-wake up dreams have a musical accompaniment. One time it was the most beautiful classical music tune I've ever heard. Dreams seem to give regular things an extra dimension.
Oh yes, I have indeed been woken up by loud vocalizations. It sounds real, exactly like someone is standing over my bed. Of course, there's never anyone there.

Absolutely Op,
Happens all the time. Sometimes it's a fragment
of a song and a repeating phrase and vision all
at the same time.

I've found the least desirable combination to be
The song: Mambo # 5 (a little bit of Rita in my life..etc)
The phrase: That's Sick! Yelled by Gilbert Godfried. Over and over
And the vision: Brezhnev picking his nose.

I used to hear someone calling my name and it would wake me up. It happened more when I was younger and less and less as time goes on although every once in awhile it still happens. I don't know the voice and it's not always the same voice. Sometimes it's very loud and sounds frantic like there's an emergency. My first name has 3 syllables so the inflection has a little longer time to come across. I have no idea what it is or why it happens. It's weird.

Here is a quote from a thread I authored some time ago.




I have been having "dreams" in which I am conscious enough to think yet still asleep
if that makes any sense. In these dreams Massive amounts of information/data is scrolling like a teleprompter
off of which I am reading.
It is scrolling pretty fast so I am having to focus pretty intensly in order to keep up.

Now, here's where it gets tricky.

What is being "displayed" is stuff that is so far above my head that I don't even begin to understand it
in my waking life yet, somehow I do when I'm asleep.
Things like quantum mechanics and complex equations. complex philosphical ideas, and long diatribes
on physics that are so far over my head they may as well be in space.

Let me be clear!
I don't understand ANY of it nor can I remember ANY of it.
It is so foriegn to me that I couldn't remember a single sentence if I had to.
It may as well be Mandarin Chineese.



It still happens and I still don't know wtf it is all about.
If I understood half of the # being sent thru my mind I would be rich and have solved all of the worlds problems by now.

Pretty freaky stuff but what can you do?

Yes to all this stuff !! I wake up with some obscure song, and usually ONLY one line of it, it will not go away, and by the end of the day I'm so drained from trying to lose this song that I feel like a zombie. Then the next day I'm fine again.

I know exactly what you mean about the random words or phrases. I get that too sometimes but mine usually happen shortly after I wake up. I'll be feeding the dog or standing over the toilet peeing and some random word will just pop into my head, and it usually puts me in a good mood because it'll be something goofy like 'SCALLYWAG'

The voices thing is bizarre. I feel like I'm just kinda hovering in this odd but comfortable state, feeling really content and there is no visual anything, just a couple voices "talking" about something. And it relates to what screwed said, because I feel like whatever I'm hearing is extremely important and I'm just soaking it in. I don't even know if it's in a real language, it seems to be way faster than english. This usually seems to happen when I'm sleeping very lightly or just dozing off and I feel really energized when I wake up, but I can never remember what it was about.

I thought I was all alone! Not really, I know it's quite common, but the random words and phrases one I find most odd, maybe it's related to the voices thing, although for me the voices incidents were kind of rare and mostly happened as I was going to sleep.

The thing about the voices suddenly screaming actually kinda made me paranoid last night as I went to bed, I'd totally forgotten that and it only came back to me as I was composing my opening post, kinda wished it hadn't. I remember the first time it happened, I was semi-conscious, drifting off and there's just incessant chatter but it's like people whispering, and it's like they're competing to be heard over one another but still whispering, it gets louder and quite intense...then a huge, angry voice screams something suddenly. I woke up, senses in hyperdrive, mind going crazy and heart pounding, terrified...scared to get up or move. As I say it only happened a couple of times when I was younger...not something I want to happen again.

I'd a bizarre exploding head one, a few months ago - my first and only - it was really intense and I posted about it on here...the weird thing about that was I woke up with a very much forgotten and strange moment from my childhood most prominent in my thoughts. Not to go off topic, the reason I mention this episode is because it was the same kind of feeling...in the dream where my head exploded I was drifting into sleep, really tired. I spoke to someone, and they spoke to me, a quite confusing and kind of creepy dream, I don't recall what was said but I remember kind of feeling happy with it or like I agreed with it, suddenly a short and sharp boom like my head exploded or expanded instantly.

But it's all very precise...if that makes sense. The feelings of the intensity of it, pure HD-in-your-head cinema at its best, the detail is in the odd things, and even though it feels detailed in some way you can't quite pinpoint why or how. In the exploding head dream, it was the actual exploding of the head that seemed most real if you like, it was like my head exploded and expanded instantly. With the chatter the detail seems to be in what being said...but you can't really make out what anyone is saying because there are so many other voices trying to whisper over them. Sorry if that all sounds kinda weird, but that's just how I perceive it..

For a while I contemplated the idea that we're somehow being implanted with suggestions or memories...I know it's far fetched, but it's an interesting idea. Waking up with random songs and thoughts...memories about things you'd forgotten...did it even happen? That sort of thing, any thoughts?

It was cool reading over your responses, thanks.

I woke up one morning this past summer and my first thought was Anubis. I don't know much about Anubis except it has something to do with ancient egypt. But it's weird because most times in the morning I think about God or how I don't want to get up or how it sucks that I have to do a routine in life.

I have always had a lot of conscious dreams, they're EXTREMELY fun for me!! I found out by finally looking through the Internet that you can induce them! This group of people did a study on it, I'll have to look and see what the name of the site was but I think you could type in "out of body experience research study" into your search engine and find it pretty quick. They were SO successful at inducing them, they wrote a book you can download for free. I had no idea until a couple weeks ago that it wasn't totally normal to have conscious dreams, to see images with your eyes closed at night BEFORE your asleep, hear people talking to you (only when your falling asleep!! Ha ha) etc. EVERYONE should experience conscious dreaming!! It's soooo fun, I'm a musician and I get ALOT of inspiration this way! Never had an out of body experience though...that'd be cool :-D

Jeez,I hate when that happens....

But I have noticed it is usually some kind of advertising I never even consciously realized I heard.

We are polluted from all the advertising everywhere we go.

So...do you guys think it's possible to project or transmit throughts, memories etc into peoples minds while they sleep? It's something I've thought much about, recently. I remember hearing or reading about similar theories but I'm not finding much info about it.

Can't even really remember where I read or heard this theory...perhaps I didn't...and it's a false memory :p

Ive often heard my name being called,usualy a male voice,but occasionaly a female,always rather loud+urgent sounding. These are 2 phrases i remember hearing just as i woke up,spoken in a male voice: "It takes many to make one" and "Nine.It takes 9 minutes to get there" also a name? "Cluxivus the Cletan"- those are the ones that stuck in my mind,for whatever reason.I get the songs later on in the day,on song-stuck-in-my-mind days.For a few days straight it was the Flintstones cartoon song.My husband lhao when i told him this-he claims he PUT the song in my head telepathicaly,as a prank.Coming from him i could well believe it,he is a psychic/clairvoyant,and we often have instances of telepathy between us,every day. If you wake up with a song in yr head,it may have been something in a dream,that triggered the memory of a specific song? As in,you dreamt you were running past a house,chased by a rabid Barney,and Jump by Van Halen was playing through an open _You forget the dream,but for some reason the song sticks.Or as in my case,when it usualy happens later in the day-i walk into the lounge and Barney is showing on Tv-i pick up what i came for,and as i turn around,the song Jump is filling my head.Just a theory,idk? The dreamstate is as mysterious as the deep ocean trenches,or a different universe.I believe our experiences in the dreamstate influences our "waking life" to a much larger extent than most folks realise.

Hey there :-) the "exploding head" thing you mention,makes me think a bit of this thing ive been getting every night,for a few months.Now,our household gets up at 5am,and none of us usualy have a time for naps,so we go into bed quite early,even me these days,as my circadian rythmns have changed,im getting night time sleep,as opposed to being awake all night+grabbing some sleep while the kids are at school.Now,every night around 10pm im in bed,reading,when i start becoming aware that the quality of the air pressure in my room changes,at least that what it feels like.I have my own bedroom+the hubby has his(severe snoring+restless sleep issues of his).Around this time my eardrums seems to be hypersensitive to sounds-my hubby will then cough a few times,in his room next to mine,and the sound of that is so over-amplified that it ASSAILS my eardrums,like a physical sensation,it actualy hurts me.There's bn times when im so stuck into something im reading,that i dont notice the change in air pressure(or whatever causes the effect),and when he coughs,my eardrums get such a loud+painful shock that it feels like my head's exploding,and i jolt as if with an electric shock.It is an unpleasant sensation at best,at worst painful and startling.Also some nights,whines,buzzing,loud clicks and pops.
