Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I was wondering if some of you guys can share some of your personal daydreams; the ones you feel comfortable sharing and songs that trigger those day dreams.
When I listen to Norah Jones, I DD that I'm performing them in a low key lounge or something, and I'm playing more for myself than for the audience. It's like, they just happen to be there, and I don't take requests unless I feel like it. Sometimes someone from the crowd will ask to sing with me, and we harmonize.
when I listen to amor gitano by alejandro ft Beyonce,I imagine myself dancing flamingo with my female friends in a party that we hold in my house.When I listen to besame by camila I DD myself having someone I love,sometimes swaying with him according to the rhythm. when I listen to Je suis en vie by gregory lemarchal I DD myself singing this song to my friends.
The only one I can give a specific linked memory to is Say It Ain't So by Weezer and this was so long ago but the song was playing in my playlist when a character got shot a looong time ago. It's strange because even though it's a "daydream", when I hear that song, I get emotional! Most songs though help contribute to the tone of the daydream though, which is an ongoing storyline for me. As in, what happened yesterday in it happened yesterday, and if I go back in today, it will carry on from what happened last. Not down to the tea, but for example say everyone found out this dude in the house cheating on his girlfriend yesterday, if I go back in today, then the house will be awkward and weird because we just learned this dude was cheating on his gf and we don't like him right now.
Romantic songs will trigger daydreams of me having a lover in my life, when in reality, I've had zero relationships. Also tough songs like rap or rock will make me feel like the tough guy I'm not, and the daydreams will follow that emotion of toughness, like me fighting back bullies etc. Right now, a very particular example would be, for me, this song called M.O.B by Pakistani singer Imran Khan, very drill and tough flex type song, triggers a particular daydream where I drive a Kia Stinger GT and my friend is taking this video of me driving on my way to college and this song plays in the speaker and it makes me feel cool.
