I generally dream a bit but I never have a recurring dream except for one and John Farnham is the star of it.
It’s never the same dream but it does follow a similar pattern. Farnham is on stage, always at an outside venue similar to the Under the Stars concerts usually performed at the Wineries. I am always off to the side, back stage and in the dreams, Farnham and I are friends. Often he gets me out on stage and sing with him and the song is normally “That’s Freedom”.
After the concert is finished, we leave the venue and he and I and the entire band and crew go back to Farnham’s ranch or estate and we party.
What changes is the venue each time. It’s never looked the same in each dream. Also, Farnham’s estate changes. Once, now that I remember, the after concert get together was held in a small town’s coffee shop.
I always feel welcome in the dream and part of the Farnham Team.
Now for some facts:
I am a HUGE John Farnham fan. I have been ever since he released Whispering Jack in 1986.
I have been to approx 10 Farnham concerts since then.
I own every Farnham album released since 1986 and some older albums as well except his 50th Birthday album.
I’ve seen Farnham perform twice outdoors. In 1989 on the Gold Coast at the old Seagulls Stadium with Darryl Braithwaite supporting and the second time was 2004 at Barossa Under the Stars.
“That’s Freedom” is one of my favourite Farnham songs and one of the songs I want played at my funeral.
I can’t sing. Not even a little bit. I sound bloody awful and there is no way that Farnham would ever have me on stage.
I don’t have any aspirations to sing in front of a crowd. Actually that is a mistruth. If I had to, the one song I could see myself rocking out to is “Eve of Destruction” by the Screaming Jets. It’s a great rock and roll song. So why aren’t I dreaming about The Screaming Jets?
I’ve had this dream approx 5 times over the past 12 months. I can’t explain it or work out what it means. If there are any dream analysers out there I would be keen to hear what you have to say.
Have you had any recurring dreams? Wanna share with us? Ever had a dream come true?
