    Last night (or early morning) upon waking I remembered a dream where I composed a song with lyrics, vocals, harmonies, melody etc...that upon waking I remember saying to myself that was unbelievable, it was nothing like anything I can recall that I may heard before (though sub-consciously it could be a possibility).

    Anyway, got ready for work, busy busy busy....and then cant remember jack. Im not that old to be so forgetful but i feel sense of lost opportunity. I know there are probably song writers that keep pen and paper next to their desk just for that reason.

    Im no song writer, but upon wakening I remember the composition was so vivid and distinct that it made more sense than anything I've tried to write before.

    So just wondering if anyone else has had inspiration from dream compositions that you wrote music from, especially want to know if it became a hit, or successful in your own way?

    Inspiration from dreams, yes.
    Nothing remarkable has come of it.

    I once had a dream that was like a trailer for a musical that I had written....

    It was just getting started when I woke up, but I've never bothered to write the musical...
