Does anyone else here spin?

Started by April. Last reply by Meghan Sheath Feb 22. 1 Reply

I spin in circles and listen to music when I daydream. I started in a chair when I was two and when I outgrew the chair around age 9-10 I started standing and spinning. I do it for hours, sometimes…Continue

What genre of music works best for you to dream to?

Im curious what you guys usually listen to. I personally can't dream to anything that doesn't have either a great melody or lyrics that fit what my character is feeling at that scene. Rap music and…Continue

Do people here watch music videos?

Started by Philip Dorrell. Last reply by Maxx// Jan 27. 2 Replies

I think a lot of music videos have a "daydreamish" quality - fuzzy, fragmented, disconnected. Also in a certain portion of scenes in music videos, the characters are daydreaming, or at least they…Continue

Mine is triggered BY music sometimes.

Two words: Anime. Music. I'll listen to one opening theme and suddenly a hour has passed with me skipping around my room daydreaming about a cool action story

Music really influences my daydreams. I build whole subplots bases on songs. I decided that maybe to express my daydreams in a way i may feel more comfortable then talking, i could start writing songs. What do you think?

Rock music triggers my DD as does dreamy music like Agnes Obel, and it's always worse at the gym when I'm running, so much so that sometimes I lose myself in a daydream and don't even realise the time is passing, then suddenly it's been 20 minutes and I'm exhausted.

Headaches without* DDing ... error in my comment.
Comment by Jessi on December 6, 2014 at 10:15am
For me a trigger is songs with a strong female singer. Lately is been a lot of Joss Stone music. Although I stopped putting headphones on at night and I haven't DDed in 2 days! Problem is now my mind doesn't know what to do and I just have random thoughts about tasks I need to do and this is keeping me from falling asleep without the satisfaction of having been in DD despite my exhaustion. Been feeling anxious and unsettled. Plus I have real bad headaches with DDing. I keep thinking I'll just fall asleep because I'm so tired but then I worry about losing sleep ironically keeping me from sleeping..... it's like I've forgotten HOW to fall asleep without having my DD world to go to every day. Isn't that weird? I'm thinking instead of music at night which is a huge DD trigger that I'll try reading. Site that'll still bring up images but it'll be productive as I'll further my literary interests and it won't be immersing in a DD world I created and get lost in. Anyone else significantly cut off their music listening and feeling the same "off"-ness??

Rock and metal usually trigger my DD, I usually either make up a story or create "music videos" in my head. It can be embarrassing in public cause I unknowingly make facial and body gestures to go with my story.

Music is a huge trigger for me. I see that's a big one for others as well. If I hear a song somewhere I HAVE to find it to finish the daydreams or it will bother me for days or even weeks. Like Camryn said, I have scenarios pop into my head from hearing songs and I have to listen to the songs over and over until I perfect it. But I can't pace or I walk into a wall lol. :) I love Imagine Dragons (especially Round and Round), American Authors, a few of Wake Owls', and some other scattered artists. Strangely, Linkin Parks' "Shadow of the Day" song stops all daydreaming that's going on in my mind. I feel completing focused on life and it clears everything out of my head except for the music.

I think I listen to my music so much that I can play different songs in my head at random times during the day (at the moment, "Winter" by Daughter is playing). I've also noticed that every time I wake up in the morning, there's always a random song playing in my head. I usually take it as my mind telling me that it's time to wake up.

Music is my number one trigger for daydreaming, so I tend to listen to music  often. When I'm riding in a car during long trips (or even short ones), I'm always, as my parents would say, "plugged in." I could listen to my music and immerse myself into my mind's world for hours and not become bored. After a while, though, I may become tired or get a headache, and I will take a break from both my music and my DDing for a while.
