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

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

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.

Music is pretty much the #1 trigger for DD's for me. I start thinking up scenarios like in a movie or a video and I have to replay them several times so that they're perfect all the while I pace back and forth in a diagonal line in my room, this happens several times a day and accumulates up to a few hours each day.

This fits me like a glove. All my life art has triggered my DD's. However; music, movies, books are my main triggers. Music being my number one trigger, still at times movies take the number one spot in fueling my DD's, because it proves an actual visual...(people/sounds. scenery) to help me create new or improve people or things who live in my head. I am so grateful that I found wildminds.

My inspiration is sometimes fast and sometimes folk music but usually i like fast track ...So as the beat gets high my story goes into new peaks

So, I've been downloading music with the intention to put it on my phone for myself to listen to....without the DDing. I've been noticing that as much as I enjoy a lot of the music I've found over the years, so much of it is attached to my DDs. I have tried to make sure that I download the song for the song and not the DD. Basically, my music collection is that of my various DD mes, and not me me.

One of many things that I've became lost about...

My biggest musical trigger type is electronic/ dance music, and dubstep music. I tend to listen to it and create scenes that go well with it. One of my favorites is Overcome, by Brenton Mattheus (SirensCeol remix), but then again, it changes all the time...
Comment by Taylor on June 27, 2013 at 3:41pm

I have various daydreams, or I guess "worlds," as I refer to them. I have music that goes along with each one, and that would be the music that the me in the daydream would enjoy. I don't necessarily have one scene or daydream that attaches to the music. It's mostly the particular life in general. It got to the point that I won't allow myself to mix the songs between daydreams. If I got a song stuck in my head during a certain daydream, I would force myself to imagine a different song.

It's sad because I love the music that I use, and I want to listen to it, but I want to be able to cut out the memories of my daydreams that I have tied to it without feeling bad about it.
