    Lucid and Singing at 7-11 - 04/21/2013

    I'm not usually one to sing around people, at least not on my own, so when I found myself in the middle of a 7-11 singing along with the overhead music I became lucid. It's not uncommon for me to have music in my dream or sing inside my mind while in the grocery store but this is a new treat for me in a lucid dream and I go with it.

    The song I'm singing is All-Star by Smash Mouth, not my first choice for a musical number but apparently easy to remember. As I begin singing I start walking around the aisle, checking out my control and it occurs to me that I should make the most of this neat scene. I have always wanted a musical number in my dream and now I have one.

    As I finish the first stanza I slightly raise my arms and the dozen-plus people in the store all stop in place, shopping baskets in hand, and begin singing the chorus. It sounds really cool and I'm totally digging on making this happen.

    "All that glitters is goooolllddd! Only shootings stars break the mold!"

    I continue singing and I'm even impressed I can recall the words so easily. the novelty of singing in a dream isn't wearing off though I find I'm not so keen on my voice as the solo participant. Still, I keep singing as I slowly walk among the stock-still shoppers.

    "It's a cold place, and they say it gets colder
    You're bundled up now, wait 'til you get older
    But the media-men beg to differ
    Judging by the hole in the satellite picture."

    "The ice we skate is getting pretty thin
    The water's getting warm so you might as well swim
    My world's on fire, how 'bout yours?
    That's the way I like it and I'll never get bored."

    And again the people erupt into song and I'm thankful to blend in with the harmony.

    "Hey now, you're a rock-star
    Get the show on, get paid..."

    I don't know any of these people but it's funny watching them standing there like an awkward music video.

    "All that glitters is gooolllddd!"

    As they sing this part they raise their arms in the air and wiggle their fingers for emphasis. I can't help but smile. :)

    "Only shooting stars break the mo-o-ollld!"

    The song ends and I'm slightly glad the pressure is off. My throat feels dry and scratchy and I wake up, still smiling and feeling happy.

    I'm an All-Star! :D
