When I am sleeping at night I will sometimes have a song playing thru my head also. It's like there is a rock station in my mind that plays music while I am asleep, but often it is the same song over and over - usually a song that I heard earlier in the day or recently. I wish my mind could just be quiet and inactive while I am sleeping. Has anyone heard actual songs while sleeping ( in their mind ? ) or am I the only human on earth with this going on ? :)
Dear All, it just started to me as well. I hear music when I go to sleep, I am a bit afraid, but I want to know the answer. If anyone of You has the answer yet or started to use this ability please write me a few words. Thanks, Susana
Wow! Like everyone else on here, I'm glad I'm not the only one :) I remember once, when I was younger, asking someone to put their ear to my ear to see if they could hear it too. I usually notice it only at night when I am trying to sleep, but think that may be because It's the only time it's really actually quiet (no tv, radio, people etc). Like the original post and many since, what I hear is a faint song that doesn't seem to change. Not quite loud enough to make out what it is, but loud enough to tell the style/genre, which seems to be random. It doesn't happen often, seems to come and go at irregular intervals (ie several nights in a row, then not for a long time) It is very much as though a neighbor is playing music a little loud, but (again) as most of you described, when I lift my head it's usually gone. Recently I heard the music while reading and listening to the hum of the air purifier. Which throws the ear compression theory out the window (at least for me). I even opened the door to check (convinced it had to be outside my head) but the night air was completely silent, and when I sat back down it resumed. It often sounds rock-ish guitar, bass, drums, vocals too quiet to understand the words. But have had it sound jazz, brass and even choir.
I have spent a great deal of time around music, sung in bands, choirs, and written music. Funny thing is the music "in my head" when I write is completely different, i hear that in my normal internal voice, and this really sounds external to me.
ALL MY LIFE I HAVE BEEN "HEARING MUSIC" I HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH BI POLAR WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF SCHIZO..YOU KNOW I HAVE HALLUCINATIONS AND WOULD HEAR A LOT OF "TALKING" OR "MUSIC" MY MUSIC WAS USUALLY A RADIO STATION YOU KNOW IN THE MORNING IT WOULD BE A MALE AND FEMALE AND THEY WERE SO HAPPY COULDNT REALLY MAKE OUT WHAT THEY WERE SAYIN AND THE MUSIC WOULD BE A COMBO OF 2 DIFFER SONGS PLAYIN AT THE SAME TIME AND I COULD ALMOST MAKE OUT ONE OF THE SONGS BUT NEVER HAVE. I HAVE BEEN ON ALOT OF MEDS OVER THE YRS AND THE VOICES AND MUSIC HAVE STOPPED WITH THE PROZAC BUT I HAVE JUST STARTED TAKING TOPAMAX AND SURPIZED AT HOW MANY I HAVE READ ARE TAKING IT ASWELL.. I DONT KNOW IF ANYONE SUFFERS FROM WHAT I DO BUT IN RECENT YRS I HAVE BEEN ON GEODON (ANTI PYCHOTIC) STOPPED THE MUSIC AND VISIONS BUT DOES SLOW HEARTRATE PROZAC TRAZADONE TO SLEEP (CANT SHUT MY BRAIN DOWN) AND ALSO VERY TENSE ALL THE TIME SO I HAVE MUSCLE SPASMS SO OF COURSE VALIUM IN SMALL DOSES AND NOW I AM ON TOPAMAX WHICH I WAS ALSO T0LD THAT SOMETIMES USED TO HELP WITH WEIGHTLOSS BEING ON DRUGS LIKE SERAQUEL AND SOME OTHERS I HAVE GAINED A LOT OF WEIGHT AND CAN' T SEEM TO LOSE IT THE TOPAMAX HASNT REALLY HELPED BUT BEING OF THE GEODON AND ON THE TOPAMAX I DO NOT HEAR OR SEE THINGS STILL MAYBE THE DOCS ARE RIGHT ON THAT ONE
This happened to me this morning. With my right side down on the pillow, I heard an actual local radio station playing and I could make out every word the dj was saying as the station actually changed songs. It was a local rock station. As soon as a lifted my head, it went away. But came back as I started to fall back asleep. Also a couple weeks ago as I was falling asleep, I kept hearing like a crowd of people talking all at the same time just like another person on here said. It sounded like about 10 people were outside carrying on, laughing and talking. I am on ambien and elavil for my migraines but they are both a small dose. Next time it happens I want to turn on the radio just to see if that song is playing. It's so weird.
I find its beautiful sensation to have this music playing before i doze off at night. I can't see images clearly in my memory or dreams but my brain can reproduce complex classical music and play it back to me while i'm fully conscious and sleepy. The music sounds as real as if i was listening to it being played. At first I thought that i was somehow composing the music subconsciously until one day i heard the radio announcer start talking at the end of the song. haha. my mind was just on playback. It does give credence to the idea that the brain remembers everything it has ever heard, its just the recall thats the problem. I was amazed at the complexity of the music. I could never hope to remember all the sounds if i was to write it down. I don't agree that we need to see a doctor if we hear music. Its a blessing and a real surprise when it happens. Unless you "see dead people or something" enjoy it!
I've been hearing this same thing for 7yrs. ,since May 2 or 3,2006.....I was 46yrs. old and am now 53...I consider myself a normal person....My Father was a High School Teacher and My Mother was a Registered Nurse,so I grew up in a middle class lifestyle....It started out that I was talking on 11 meter band of radio to a contact that I believe was in Australia, it was on propagation ,so,his signal came and gone,in and out on radio......I turned the radio off and the person was still talking to Me,better than on the radio(I'm thinking satellite,now)?He say's,"I can read what Your thinking". I'm thinking you got to be shittin' Me?So, It was like saturday morning,I was hungry I walk in to a burrito stand and buy SOMETHING? I come outside and ask this person(male) "What did I buy"?He say's ,"Breakfast Burrito". I say to Myself,"He must be hacked into the cash register,I used a credit card"......It must be NSA.....I've been researching this for 7yrs. ,right? This guy is kind of a smart *** atitude, that I'm reading.....I find out his name....It's James Thayer..... I look it up on the computer .....He wrote a Thesis on "Quantum Immortality".....I started reading it.....it was good!....I've found a lot of things related to what I'm hearing......"They" have found out how good My abilities are and "they" are not going to leave Me alone, now.....I have to get a camera so My wife can record this sound that comes from My head, sometimes its music she say's, sometime like last night she said it sounded like what a UFO would sound like? Its a longer story.....
I forgot to tell the cure's....If You hear these sounds You are on a program.....More than likely comes from satellites and or other species( don't pop your pants....Synthetic telepathy is the middle ear or pennial glands in your head.....the program is name the catagory of "people" or "species" ,if, you have the "vision ability".....If "they" sing you might be able to see "they're" mouths move or speak?....That is the direction the signal or wave is coming from......Certain ELEMENTS block the link...316L stainless steel is non-magnetic and in your imagination a stainless steel powder hand gernade going off in front of that mouth will kill the signal..what else?....vertical polarity changes the way they receive your thoughts.....seems to work?....if you hear THEM ask,"what year is it"? That means that "THEY" are in another demension of time.....Ask yourself "what happens to time after 186,000 mph....or sooner? Maybe this will give you a better idea of what is going on?
I forgot again, What's your body made of? Water? How much water 60-70%? Does lazer penetrate water?Laser Listening?Neural Decoding?University of Stanford.....Read what I'm Thinking? Telepathy -"Extra Terestial" Technology
I am the exact same was as well. I've always been curious as to why.
Don't distress yourself unnecessarily with fears of illness or the supernatural. Your perceptions may be just part of having a normal imagination. Think about how from her bed late at night a lady may hear the closet air filter, condensate being flushed down the central air system drain pipe, a running toilet, air and street traffic, her snoring spouse, his CPAP, crickets outside, her own breathing and heartbeat, her dogs shifting about on their bed, and so on. The pitches and rhythms of the background white noise may be shaped by her imagination into recognizable patterns as she starts to dream. The reason this experience is affected by one of her ears being pressed against her pillow is that this affects her perception of ambient noise. Another way to think about it is that the human mind constantly seeks order and pattern, and sometimes perceives them where they don't actually exist, like the face of the man in the moon. It's also related to how water running in the kitchen sink or in the shower may sound like the doorbell or a ringing telephone.
I have had the same thing going on while I'm trying to sleep. When I put my right or left ear on the pillow I hear the noise but when I take my ears off of the pillow the noise stops. I usually gay this when I'm really tired but when I lay down when I'm not tired I don't hear the noise. I joined this site because I have sleeping problems and this is one of the things that prevent me from falling asleep. Anyways thanks for posting this because I don't feel alone anymore.
Thank you for giving me insight. I've heard the music in my pillow off and on all my life and I'm 50 years old. Though now I am starting to see things when I can't keep my eyes open all the way. I'm also talking in my sleep and right before sleep. I catch myself doing it and my husband is getting worried. I thought about mentioning it to my doctor but he's real young and I think would dismiss it and laugh at me. But you have given me a different avenue to go down for answers. Thank you so much. Sleepy in New Orleans
Hello to all of you....I too have this problem when I sleep with one ear on a pillow...however, it started as a muffled, bass sound (like the neighbor's stereo, bose radio, etc....) Now I hear "hispanic" type music (really!!!). And then vicious, vicious headaches with shoulder and lupper arm pains (both arms). Here is what I have started doing...before I go to bed, I lie on my back... flat on the floor with arms outstretched and place my head sideways (look to the left side) and stay that way for 5 minutes (don't move)...then shift only the head to the right (looking to the right side ) for another 5 minutes. Then get up sit with a straight back, head/neck straight...looking ahead for 30 seconds! It should help! Take care, Gabrielle
Mine sounds like one of those little transistor radios when you were a kid. Sounds like it is in the wall, or a mile away. I can't hear words or lyrics, just that there is music......???

I have heard music for years upon awakening or sleeping, it is a hypnagogic hallucination, medical not psychiatric, part of the nanrcolepsy. The music I hear now gets better and better as time goes on, nothing like the junk on the radio... Heavenly music ;)
I have the exact same problem! I'm only 19 and I just began hearing the muffled rock music within the last year. Over the summer I heard it 5 or 6 nights in a row, but I haven't heard it much since then- it's very sporadic. However, I lucid dream constantly and have remembered my dreams every night (and in great detail) since I was extremely young. These are probably linked in some way... Also, a lot of you are mentioning having headaches as after hearing this music or being on medication for migraines, but I've never had a headache in my life (which I always thought was pretty weird). Does anyone else with this problem have incredibly vivid dreams?
I also hear music. And it's not one particular kind of music; I hear classical, waltz music, rock, country....etc. It kind of freaks me out at times and I wonder if I am crazy or if I am going crazy.
Thank you internet, thank to you I can realize I am not the only one to experience that.
Some of you is talking about this as a "problem", I disagree. It's amazing to hear what our brain is capable.
It's been several month I hear music in my hear, all kind, and sometine with voices, even if I can't distinguish lyrics. It I try to focus on it, it fades away. If not, then as the images are scolling in my head as I getting asleep, it gets louder and it happened to awake me once because it was too loud!
If only I could remember them at the morning, if only I was a musician I would records it. These songs are coming from nowhere and they are amazing, and I am not even a musician!
So after your doctor diagnosed you did whatever treatment he/she help with the auditory hallucinations?
Same thing but I'm twelve. I'm scared. I hear radio talk shows in my head but my brain interprets it as around sound. I asked a family member if they could hear the music as well and they all laughed at me. When the talk show goes to the song I can hear every lyric and the exact singers voice. HELP
I thought I was going crazy.....which I might be :) I hear music when I lie down and have one ear on my pillow. And same thing happens as Chimyers, it goes away when I lift my head. I've been under a tremendous amount of stress, not sleeping, anxious, etc.... Sometimes I can hear it when I'm not lying down. It's like an old radio that needs to be tuned into the right channel for less static. I can't decipher what is played but it's music.
I can't believe others have this to. I think I have so many sleep disorders including sleep paralysis at times that I dont get alarmed anymore. But the one with the music kind of trips me out. yes, mostly when i lay my head down on the pillow. I'm not yet asleep so i know i'm not dreaming. It is very loud like it's coming from inside my ears or brain and for me it's radio stations. sometimes I even hear the DJ talking. This can go on from anywhere between a few minutes to a couple of hours. Usually it plays love songs or other soft music. probably because it's my favorite. I let it just help me fall asleep now. I just literally enjoy the music. It play songs after song after song. Songs I know but some I dont so its really weird. And when I slightly move sometimes it will stop. So I just posistion my head back to where it was and it comes back. Kind of like an antenna. No, I have never been diagnosed with any mental disorders. But now I'm wondering. Although I know other sleep disorders also have audio hallucinations. but I can tell when i;m having those. There a bit different, still crazy, but different. Im surprised to see how many people are getting this. Who else has the actual radio stations though. And you can move your head in different posistions and either get different stations, static or sometimes stops. I have had them in different sleep posistions as well but i noticed alot of the time I am laying on my left side. I think it's funny when someone said it's your heart beat or something. With a DJ? Ha Ha. No it's definately a loud radio inside my brain playing some rather good music. Does anyone have any clue what is wrong with me? I only have audio hallucinations when it comes to being in bed trying to sleep.
I too hear music in my head mainly after a song I just heard. All I really listen to is super ultra epic inspirational mostly audio machine and future world music "orchestra music". When I do hear this music in my head after I've heard the song its like my brain makes the most epic and supernaturally perfect superhuman ungodly remix of the song I just heard and I'm vary scared I'm not going to be able to share its perfection. So if there's a way I can hear my music better and play it that would be a miracle. It would probably revolutionize perfect music.
YES! I hear actual songs in my sleep at night, and very often during the day as well. It's also usually songs I've heard recently, like you. It really gets to me, as I am hearing music almost literally 24/7! I mentioned it to my psychiatrist and also a psychologist when I was seeing one, and they both seemed a bit baffled by it, and offered no advice. They didn't seem worried about it. I've never heard of anyone else with this problem, so it helps to know I'm not alone. I will sometimes hear the same song for 3-4 days straight, and at other times, it is different songs.
I have listened music in night but it is hardly half an hours. Because if you hear music constantly it can be affect on your sleep.
I heard here on MH recently this is called ear worms...look it up.it doesnt mean you have worms in your ears
I have the same problem, sounds like a tv show is on even when I'm miles away from anyone with a tv or radio.
I know this post is old, but what you said is exactly what happens to me. And I am not laying on my ears, just on my back, I can not make out the music, like others posting. I even asked my husband if he hears it. Though when I sit up, at times I can still hear it, sometimes it sounds like people talking too. Does it still happen? I have had a brain MRI, due to migraines and my brain is fine. Neck problems is all. I am on topimax and other meds, so I usually doze right off now. My sister told me to try and tap into the noise, maybe it's a physic ability but I can't even imagine. I guess she said that because I have a lot of strange dreams as well that seem very real. Although it's strange, it's a relief to hear other people have it happen. I don't think it's dangerous, at least I know there is nothing dangerous for me since I had an MRI. Did you ever see a Doctor?
Have you ever had a sleep study? All of the symptoms you describe are possible symptoms of sleep disorders. It might be helpful to discuss these symptoms with your doctor, and ask if a sleep study may be appropriate. Considering your auditory hallucinations at sleep onset, which may be something called "hypnagogic hallucinations," doing an MSLT (or "nap study") along with the regular sleep study (polysomnogram) may be diagnostically helpful.
Just to let you know, I have personally experienced all of the symptoms you are describing. I used to find the auditory hallucinations distracting and sometimes even upsetting when I was trying to fall asleep. However, once I got diagnosed with a sleep disorder (in my case, narcolepsy), I found they didn't both me as much because at least I knew what was causing it. Extremely realistic, vivid dreams can also be a sign of sleep disorders; I get these as well with my narcolepsy. I strongly recommend that you speak with a doctor about these symptoms, as there are treatments available that can improve the quality of sleep for people with sleep disorders.
Typical, if you can't answer the question then it has to be psychiatric. Just like when I was 8 years old and had headaches it was psychiatric because I wanted attention, funny how it actually turned out to be a blockage of spinal fluid due to CM I.
Do a little research before you brush off someone's question as psychiatric, especially when it is so odd a symptom. Just like the doctor that accused me of faking my symptoms at a young age, you may have sent this person and others like them off on a wild goose chase after a wrong diagnosis.
Just because YOU don't understand something does not mean it is not real. It is shameful how you flippantly answered this question! I find it highly offensive. You are a professional! So act like it! Did you ever think that maybe the person was at a loss for words to explain what is actually occurring? That maybe it's not the patient at all but outside influences such as RF interference (look it up). I'm finished trying to educate you.
An interesting rage, but to what purpose?
Dr. Rajput hasn't been on the forum since 2011.
I know this post was made years ago but I have also heard not music but voices through my pillow twice in my life and in two different homes. I'm certainly not crazy I know what I heard I googled it and sure enough I find this forum. So maybe nothing's wrong with you or me, we could just be normal people who sometimes hear voices in our pillows!!! Okay maybe a little crazy!!
The way you describe it is exactly the same way as I experience it.
I'm at work right now, and there is music playing, I hear the tune, melody, just can't make out the words. Nobody else hears it! I also have the 1 ear on the pillow thing. I hadn't experienced it in awhile, but I did today. I read it is a form of tinnitus, or musical hallucinations. I just wish if I am stuck with this, it turns up so I can enjoy it a bit more!
Ditto and double ditto- I hear music, sports radio, talk radio, family conversations and what seems like re-runs of tv shows from long ago. It's like the walls retained sound and I'm hearing it. I know I'm perfectly balanced, just obviously too tuned in or sensitive the the venue. I do have tinnitus, though continually forget to ask the doctor what to do about it.
I read on one of the blogs to put tin foil or sheets of copper around you, maybe wear a copper ring or bracelet to bed.
Worth a shot when you are ready to bolt out of bed and look for what appliance got left on, It is also more notable and enduring when a fan is on.
This has only happened in the past 6 years, both homes were/are made of (old) 2' thick, NM adobe. Occasionally I catch a word or two, or recognize a song, the rest of the time it faint-muffled. The most annoying is the sports commentators or people arguing on talk radio.
I hear what you hear, could have been a song, TV... whatever.
I knew a song echoing from a faraway neighbor could not be it cause they lasted 20 minutes (or more!). I finally figured it was all the subtle,, constant noises around (a fan, road noise, rain, etc.) that my messed up head was string it together to try to make it make sense.
I found this particularly common the night after a night after of heavy drinking...
I hear beautiful music, sometimes classical, sometimes the early 1800s through the early 1900s, sometimes notes that can't be explained or identified to a time period. It's always music that I have never experienced. It's never songs or singing. It's pure and simple, beautiful. That said, I have often thought that if I could learn to control it and understood notes, I could write it. However, I can't get a handle on it. I've had it my entire life, as did my Nana. I believe it's a gift that I haven't appreciated in that I've done nothing with it. I believe that children who get up one day and start playing the piano or making any kind of music with rhythm have this gift. Mozart and Beethoven, I'm sure, had this gift. Again, if I could explain it and you could write it, I'd make you famous, but I can't seem to control it. Plus I would never abuse this God given gift. He must be wondering why on earth I haven't used it. Please keep me posted as to whether or not you've ever known anyone who can; control it that is.
I agree with you, if only we could somehow learn to control it we could make beautiful sounds, beautiful music and make this world a much better place. The music I hear is absolutely amazing. It's what heaven must sound like.
Nobody here who hears "rock" songs at night ever dare listen to hardtekk or frenchcore...

It is not your heartbeat! There is a huge difference between the hearing of your heartbeat and music of voices. These are forms of hallucinations which can be caused by many different issues but definitely should be looked into by a Specialist. Please don't freak out over "hallucinations" it does not mean you're crazy it could simply be an inner ear issue.
I have it and my sister has it. I always thought the neighbors were playing loud music. Finally looked it up and found that it is called Musical Ear Syndrome.
Don't worry. The tinnitus for example is your own high vibration that you hear (which is good). This audio hallucinations indicate, that your third eye works better then in other people and that you are stuck in kind of a spiritual awakening. You have to learn to deal with it and to accept it, then you can start even enjoying it and use it, you can easily develop extrasensory abilities with that. I also do hear sounds like that, while meditating or during sleep, I have a tinnitus all the time too and I can "tune" it when concentrating on my own vibrations. The "Orchestra" you hear are basically higher, astral vibrations too, calling your soul out for a night walk. Ever heard of astral traveling? This is what I hear too, before I let my soul go and astral travel (please read about it and try it, do not freak out, it can be scary, but I promise everything will be alright). Your problems with sleep all result from you ignoring the needs of your soul and your higher self. There are three aspects that form "you": soul, body and mind (what a triangle stands for). They should be in perfect balance, you should know every of this parts of yourself very well and satisfy your needs. By the way, your soul can go out, only when you are in sleep paralysis, that's why the sounds fade when you move (you force your soul back into your body). Educate yourself and spiritual science, this will help you a lot (do not forget to work with mind and body too). I wish all of you with similar problems good luck!
I have those exact same syndromes, and I have no idea why, so I guess I'm not helping, lol sorry.
Dear friends it took me a long time to get here, but maybe this will enlighten your issues.
It seems like all over the world people are finnaly realizing the full potential of the human brain.
It's called the awakening, lots of people are going through the same thing, They sleep and wake up tired, they start hearing music, they become more artistic, they start feeling how other people feel, they are questioning everything,they feel like they are going insane in their own heads afraid to tell others about it,...
You are not alone in this.
It comes down to this: the solar outburst have effect on the geomagnetic activity of our planet. In short, the vibrational frequencies are becoming higher, these resonate with the brainfrequency. Like why is it that exactly the song you needed to hear plays exactly at the time you put the radio on. All of a sudden it's like that song describes an issue you're also dealing with. In other words we tune in into the collective consciousness.
Hope this helped :)
I'm experiencing a similar thing right now except it sounds like violins playing no tune in particular when my ear is against my pillow,it's so weird and I can't sleep. Any tips?
This is very helpful I thought I was possessed. When I was younger hearing these noises confused and traumatized me. At this time in my life I was having manic episodes of insomnia and depression. I remember telling my mom and sister about it and they just never had an explanation. I remember it so well...
