I have some questions about dreaming music and retaining dream music. I never, ever compose music or anything when I'm conscious, but sometimes I dream music, and the other night I was sleeping lightly when I started thinking of something I really liked. I was able to pull into half-consciousness in an effort to remember it, but I was so tired I couldn't keep from going back to full sleep in a minute, and could remember next to nothing the next day. Those of you who also dream music sometimes: what tricks do you have for retaining it? Also, does anyone know why, in situations like this, music can pop into a person's head in great form when they're asleep but rarely does when they're awake?
