Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. In my first dream, I am sitting on a bar stool chatting up a handsome bartender named John. He tells me that this job is just a stepping stone to bigger things as he offers a light for my cigarette. An elderly man next to me orders another gin and tonic, and tells me that he always visits this bar, because the music is superb. I start to listen, and I am surprised to hear someone singing...
2. In the next dream, I am walking along a dirt road behind a man in very dark clothing. The man says nothing, but as the sounds of a fiddle waft toward us, he begins to walk more quickly. When we reach the small boy who is playing, I ask the musician's name, but before the he can answer me, the older man introduces himself as Lucifer. He challenges the boy to contest for his soul, and the boy quickly accepts. Before I know it, they're off and playing. I listen, but my mind wanders, and suddenly I am awake and wondering... what on earth is this little boy's name?
3. When I finally fall back asleep, I dream that I am living in a small apartment by myself. Every night, I do my "jazzercise," and though I'm sure that the man in the apartment above me can hear the music, he never complains. One night, I look out my window and see a note hanging from a string. When I pull it in and read it, I can't believe my eyes. It's a love letter, and at the bottom, my admirer asks me to...
4. Now I am standing in a large dance club, where the loud music- accented by a strong tambourine line- has everyone dancing. One sweet young lady in particular seems to be on everyone's mind, and I can see that she is quite the dancer. She certainly appears to be "having the time of [her] life," that is until the authorities arrive, and the young girl is promptly arrested. Why?
5. My next dream is about a man and a woman who are invoved in a tawdry affair. He's married and has a family, and although once upon a time she believed he might leave them for her, she knows better now. While he tells her to "be patient," her friends try to tell her to find a man of her own. Despite all of this, they have planned a rendez-vous for tonight, and I am surprised to hear her tell him...
6. Suddenly, I am sitting in a disco next to a sad old woman. She appears to be in her early fifties, but her dress must be at least 30 years old, and it is not flattering. While others around her dance to the disco music, the woman simply continues to drink and mumble to herself about a diamond, a gun, and a guy named Tony. One of the disco's regulars tells me that she worked here before it was a disco at all- before the murder that shut down one of the hottest night clubs around. What song's main character have I been watching?
7. In my next dream, I am sitting outside the Tastee Freeze having a chili dog with some of my friends from high school, including a couple who are very much in love. The two of them are flirting, and he's got his hands between her knees, but no one much cares. They're daydreaming about the future, and to lighten the mood, the boy scratches his head and does an impression of his favorite actor. Which actor does he imitate?
8. Suddenly, I am a psychologist sitting in my office as a man walks in and sits on the couch. He proceeds to describe a dream he's been having, and although he insists on addressing me as "Darkness", I listen carefully. "Well, doc, in my dream I'm wandering around in the fog when I see a bright light. I go around the corner, and I find this mass of people all making noise... but, actually, I think it was all really quiet. Hmmm, that's odd, how could all of those people be talking if no one was speaking? Anyway, after that I seem to remember getting on my soapbox about something or another, but no one paid any attention to me. Then my dream got really weird..." If my patient continues to follow the song he's walked out of, what might he tell me next?
9. My next dream was not so enjoyable; I dreamed I was in a small town in Nebraska, and something was seriously wrong. A teenage girl named Mary had left one night and had never come home. The prime suspect was a boy she had been seen with; He was unpopular, and the people in town often whispered that he was "not right." He and Mary often walked along the river together. Until now, no one had really paid attention, except to spread the occasional rumor about one or the other of them. But now the entire town is convinced that the boy has killed Mary, and no matter how much he denies it, he can't seem to change their minds. Although it seems he may never escape the angry townpeople, I begin to run. As I hit the outskirts of town, I see a sign: "Now leaving..." what tragic musical town?
10. My last musical dream of the night is about a young couple down on their luck. Tommy was a dockworker, but his union is on strike now, and he isn't making any money. His young wife Gina works as much as she can at a local diner, but it's hard on her, and it begins to take a toll. In the night when they wake up together, they whisper support to one another, and they tell themselves that all that really matters is that they have each other. As my alarm clock breaks into my consciousness, I can hear the music of Tommy and Gina's story. According to the song, what are they "Living on"?
