Dreaming of a Happy Ending

Today I dreamt that Tears For Fears was coming to Singapore. I attended the concert with my dream-friends. After the concert, the organiser came over and said if we passed her our CD covers, she’d get Curt and Roland to sign them.
I wanted to bonk myself over the head for not even thinking of getting their autographs. I told myself, nevermind, next time they come to Singapore I’ll be ready.
Somehow, my dream fast-forwarded to their return leg concert, which I also attended. Again, we were asked for our CD covers Suddenly I realised I didn’t think of bringing any again. This time I didn’t want to give up. I rummaged through my bag and dug out the back cover of a brochure, and went right up to Curt and Roland who were sitting at what looked like a press conference. However I never got their autographs, because I woke up shortly after.
This evening we had a sudden change of dinner plans and we ended up dining at a different building. After dinner we went to a neighbouring minimart – and smack in the middle of their magazine shelf was a new-look issue of MusicTech, a UK Publication. And guess who was on the front cover?

Roland and Curt!!!! The main story was about all the music equipment they used to produce their latest album, Everybody Loves a Happy Ending (which is really really good and I got my copy at HMV if you can’t find one). Another blurb on the cover asked, “Mac OSX Tiger – Should you upgrade?” The magazine was new, the free CD was intact (sometimes people rip it off) and it was calling out to me (“Buy me. Buy me.”) So I did.
It’s totally bizzarre. Oh well. I got to see a few cool pics of them chilling out in the studio. They used enough equipment to start a music shop! And interestingly, they used Reason among other types of software. Hmm.

    Cool dream. How uncanny.
    Now, how come Bjork never appears in my dream?
    Enjoy your mag 🙂
