I woke up with a song in my head in the style of the fall and the chorus went like this: "I think I just saw a pterodactyl... I think I just saw pterodactyl". Does this song exist, or did I just imagine it?

I have an unusual memory from childhood that I have always wondered about. Was it partial sleep paralysis? Circulation cut off? A dream? [more inside]

Whenever I dream, stairwells, elevators, and large buildings with multiple levels always figure prominently. There'd be nothing strange about this except a) my daily life does not involve stairwells, large buildings, or elevators in any way, and b) they're in absolutely every dream I have -- no exceptions. This has been going on for at least a year, possibly longer. What could be possibly be causing this?

I have excessive dream recall (I dream too much.) I frequently confuse the details of my realistic dreams for reality meaning I reference things in conversation that never happened.
If I'm anxious the dreams are nightmares but not night terrors.
Anyone mastered this problem? If so, how? [more inside]

Just as I'm falling asleep, I regularly have a brief but powerful dream in which I experience the fear that I'm about to have or cause a car wreck, and then I wake up.
Should recurring dreams of this nature be a cause for concern, or are they quite commonplace and natural?

When I wake up, I lie in bed and think. Gradually, I get more awake until I'm ready to get up. But, if I think about the dreams I just had, I get overpoweringly sleepy again. Why is it that thinking about anything else helps me to continue gently waking up, but thinking about dreams puts me immediately and irresistibly back to sleep? [more inside]
