Following last week's theme of one-night stands, we remain in the bedroom, but for very different reasons. The topic is dreams, always a fertile source of musical inspiration. Of course, the easy option, especially for those with iTunes, is to pick out songs with the word in the title but there are many less obvious examples - take, for example, the line from Tim Buckley's Song to the Siren: "Did I dream you dreamed about me?" Please stick to the dreams that come with sleep rather than the Martin Luther King ("I have a dream") or Crowded House (Don't Dream It's Over) varieties.

Remember me? Part 2
Given his father's history in New York, it was inevitable a few ghosts would haunt him. Once, he stopped into "some bodega-type record shop" and saw Dream Letter, the Tim Buckley concert album. Whether out of sorrow or pain, he immediately walked out. Killing time at bookstores, he would look up his father in rock history books. "I'm always testing him," he wrote in a letter to Tim's friend, Larry Beckett. "Born, wrote, sang, changed, changed, grew, grew, grew, ignored, rejected, revolution over evolution, gotta move, don't have much time, critics, rejected, dead ... revered. You fucks."
