Thursday’s Theme Music

This is a twofer Thursday post, featuring a dream and a song, because this song started in my dreamstream.

It was a turbulent stream, with multiple vignettes and one-act plays. I think the music made this one memorable.

“Conquistador” began playing in the dream. Hearing it, I said, “Hey, I know this song. “Conquistador”. Procol Harum.” After remembering hearing the song’s live version in high school in the early seventies, and talking to my friend, Bob, about it (in the hall in front of the art classroom, by my locker, where he was talking overly loudly and enthusiastic, trying to catch some girl’s attention), I thought about other Procol Harum music I know and wondered where the music was coming from. I couldn’t identify its source.

All that was backdream. I was in my most recurring dreamscape, which is dark green, slightly rolling hills. I seem to know or I remember such hills most often out of dreams. Accompanied by several friends, we were admiring two exotic hyper cars, a Lamborghini and Ferrari, that belonged to others, and discussing their styling, price, and performance capabilities.

My friends were envious, but I said, “Yes, but my car is faster than either of them, and costs more.”

They were skeptical. So was I. I thought my ride would be there by now. As it wasn’t, I didn’t think my ride was going to arrive, and was becoming anxious.

“Conquistador” ended, and my ride arrived, a stunning silver Aston Martin. “Wow,” I said, along with my friends. “Wow.” I never believed it would arrive.

Then, it was just there.

    1. Nothing wrong with that. My Aston Martin infatuation goes back to the Aston Martin DBR1 that Carroll Shelby and Roy Salvadori drove to victory in LeMans in 1959. I was three when that happened, but I read an account of it years later, and just thought the car was gorgeous. Then came exposure to Bond’s car, and then, later, the DB7 and the DB9, and then the Vanquish… We’re all suckers for something. Cheers


      1. I guess my real person car would be the Mazda mx5. For some reason. It is so beautiful but I dunno, I like the engine sounds of muscle cars more than the mere pretty aesthetic of sporty ones. Like a dodge challenger! But ultimately.. I have always wanted a Cat (earthmover) or a Decepticon… LOL uuugghhh… This is why I could never be satisfied. I am the worst. LOL I’m going to have to Google your references!

      2. I enjoy the Miata MX5. Always reminded me of the 1970 Lotus Elan that a friend owned. Drove another friend’s green Miata several times. Not much power in that version, but lot of fun with the top down. Always like open air motoring. A friend has a current Challenger, but I prefer the one my neighbor had back in 1971, purple ragtop with a white interior and red-stripe tires. Decepticon…ha, ha. That could help in a traffic jam, hey? LOL. Should write a series, traffic jam wars.


      3. Truly, road raging in my head and laughing it out loud is what spawned my Vortexia adhoc super hero. She began with the power of black holes which evolved into portal jumping. Omg a purple challenger… uuugg…. hmm. That is so effing damn cool. Ever. But goddammit, I didn’t want to be the mechanical machine again. 😓 hahahaha ffs

      4. I am. I really am, I am. To confuse the peeps of the world (all peeping and popping and pistol whipping pistons) I like to go by the letter K. But will accept either c or q phonetic utterances as terms of acknowledgment. (Curtsey, cries, crump style dancing to end the scene)
