Duet with Udo

Last night I dreamed that I sang a duet with Udo Jürgens, of all people. It was like in those 1960s movies, when two actors walk around in the countryside, singing songs. We sang an anti-Capitalist fight song that I had written. The melody was so incredibly catchy that it was still stuck in my head for hours after I woke up. At one point, I was briefly angry at Udo because as we sang along, he suddenly changed a line of text into something that seemed incredibly clichéd to me. It was one of the weirdest dreams that I ever had.


1) Lots of good reasons to be anti-capitalism these days, and cliches are bad. ;-) But this reminds me of a joke or cartoon from a few years ago where a father is telling his teenaged daughter that she should keep abreast of current events by reading the newspaper. "I do read the newspaper," she replies, "I read about all the people committing dastardly deeds and going to jail." "I mean something beyond the crime section," he says. "I'm talking about the business pages!" is her rejoinder.

2) I hope you wrote down the catchy melody.

Oh, dear, I forgot #3.

3) It's been about 6 weeks, (or so) now - I hope your shoulder is coming along good, or maybe even completely healed (?) :-)

And I was going to ask about that melody, too...
