I Remember Why I Dream In Black And White

Musical interlude

This came around appropriately on the iPod when I was developing – Spike Milligan’s I’ve Got That Photograph Of You:

And yes the subtitle of the blog is a reference to one of my favourite pre-fame Elliott Smith songs, Heatmiser’s ‘Plainclothes Man’ – and yes I used to dream only in black and white when I was younger, which was a spooky connection when I first heard this song many years ago:

Someone takes a photograph
A picture while their sweetheart laughs
A perfect moment in a flash of light
Counting back from 3 to 1
That’s exactly what you’ve done

And I’m so unsurprised
I remember, I remember why I dream in black & white
