Music Video #3: Recurring nightmares - “Going Back to College in My Dreams”
A 250th Anniversary Dartmouth Photo Essay along with a song about recurring nightmares.
"Well I woke the other night in a cold sweat." Have you ever woken up from a nightmare about being back in college? I used to, until I wrote this song!
Here’s some vintage photos of Dartmouth College, along with the tune played by me along with the Out on a Limb Band:
For the record, I should mention that as a result of writing this song, my recurrent nightmares went away for good! I still remember them well though, going to class totally unprepared for a test, or finding out I missed all the classes for the semester when I didn’t even know I had signed up for the course!
While I did not attend classes at Dartmouth College, I did help teach an Osher course on Louis Armstrong and I appreciate the rich history of the college, and the geography of the area.
Out on a Limb Band is: Rick Barrows on mandolin, Melissa Desiervo on banjo, Steve Glazer on lead guitar, and Erin Smith on upright bass and fiddle. They can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/OutonaLimbBand/ Audio recording by Steve Smith. Photos courtesy of Dartmouth College Library.
I tried to edit the photos so that they go along with the lyrics, as well as the music. I hope you find this entertaining and informative!
