Naomi Pilgrim – “House Of Dreams”.

And here is the second song from Naomi Pilgrim that I want to show you. I LOVE the lyrics, that’s the main reason I like this song so much. I’ve heard it for the first time only yesterday yet it’s still in my mind and I feel like listening to it over, and over, and over again. If I’m honest with you, at the beginning, when I listened to it for the very first time, it didn’t sit right with me really. I’ve said that I appreciate Naomi’s way with harmonies, the way she creates her music, the way it is produced. And I could see that the harmonies in this song were also really interesting to hear, very captivating, but I have that sensory thing with some sounds, not only with sounds, with harmonies too. Sometimes I just hear a song and it may be even beautiful, interesting, cool, but… ick, at some point there is something in the harmonies, that I guess other people don’t perceive the same, I’ve asked dozens of people believe me, that gives me a quick adrenalin shot, the dose depends on how bothering it is, and it just makes me feel kind of anxious… uncomfortable… I don’t know how to explain it… I guess as if it was incompatible with my brain. πŸ˜€ It’s not about disharmony, just certain types of sounds and harmonies, or maybe sequences of sounds I should say, I don’t know if there is any objective rule or a specific kind of things that can make me feel this way. It’s a weird feeling. But that’s just one of my sensory quirks. Usually, if I get that, it’s not passable, and I know I should avoid the thing that triggered this feeling in me, especially if it’s strong because it can get worse and make me feel just more generally anxious and unsettled. But I kept on listening to this song, because I was curious, and it felt like with time it actually stopped bothering me so much. Maybe because I focused on these great lyrics. And at this point, I can ignore the stuff that doesn’t agree with my brain, and now as it doesn’t bother me so much, it feels like it makes the song more intriguing. I wish I could do that with everything and with much more intense stuff. πŸ˜€ Weirdly, soul seems to be the kind of music that very often contains such harmonies and sequences that make me feel unsettled more or less. I do love this songΒ  overall, and I do love the dream-like feel of it and Naomi’s vocals and, as I said, the lyrics above all. Dreamers unite. πŸ˜€

Question of the day (31st March).

Hi people. πŸ™‚

I’ve been feeling fairly shitty physically the last couple of days, the reason of it is quite enigmatic for me, anyways I didn’t have energy for almost anything, so I’m sorry for neglecting you for another couple of days. I really hope I can start functioning normally again ’cause it’s annoying. OK, so my question for you is such:

What is something you day dream about?

My answer:

What I day dream about? Everything! Absolutely anything and everything. Even stuff that I wouldn’t necessarily like to happen in real life, but day dreaming about them is cool, even just because you can stop any minute, and switch to some other dream. Daydreaming is one of my absolutely favourite things to do, and to which I’m sort of addicted, as my brain likes to switch into the daydream mode whenever it likes nowadays, often without consulting it thoroughly with me. πŸ˜€ And then it’s too big a temptation for me to just give it up. I had one guy call me Dreammie years ago lol. I like that I can have the full control over my day dreams and do whatever I fancy in them. If I don’t have anything better to do or I’m feeling like rubbish and out of energy like I’ve been recently I’ll spend hours just day dreaming. Usually I prefer doing something else at the same time which doesn’t need focusing too much because naturally I tend to lose track of time when I’m daydreaming so it’s a pity to waste so much time if you can do something productive at the same time too, but sometimes I just lie on my bed with the headphones and some music and dream, and it just goes on its own, I don’t have to even think much about what I’d like to dream about, but if I’d rather dream about something different I can do it. That’s why daydreams are better than when you sleep because when you sleep you never know what’s waiting for you on the other side, do you? And you usually can’t be in control. So, no, I don’t think I can just tell you what I day dream about, because it can be simply everything.

So how about you? Any fellow dreamaholics out there? πŸ˜€
