Jim Morrison was a bit wacky, but was at heart a poet, and he wrote: Shake dreams from your hair, my pretty child, my sweet one. Choose the day and choose the sign of your day – the day’s divinity the first thing you see. The dream theme is certainly common in music –ballet, opera and instrumental classical music often had ‘dream sequences’ that allowed for the music and dancing to be a little more abstract, and modern songwriters use dream imagery all the time. “California Dreaming”, written by the Mamas and Papas in the 60’s practically defined the hippy search for …..well, whatever it was for……during that time period. In the 40’s, Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald sang and scatted their way through the beautiful and haunting song, “Dream a Little Dream of Me”. The Monkees sang about a “Daydream Believer”, Stevie Wonder “Never Had a Dream Come True”, Mariah Carey had a “Dream Lover”, Dave Matthews has a “Dream Girl”, Aerosmith said to “Dream On”, and Delbert McClinton kills you with his emotional “I’ve got Dreams – Dreams to Remember”. It’s great to meet and nurture young people with dreams, and there are plenty of them studying music at San Isidro’s Escuela de Musica Sinfonica. There will be several concerts and recitals given by the students during December - so go check out their schedule. The Rum Bar at Rio Lindo consistently has eclectic musical treats, so please give them a call, and the newly opened, gorgeous Ubar Lounge in San Isidro offers a variety of music throughout the month.
