in learning how to write my own music, i several times would wake up with a melody or a set of chords or a combo going through my head and get up to write them, dashing to a pen and paper and Rufus (my guitar) as quickly as possible before it disappeared. i would then construct the beginning of something, and have to leave to do Something, and continue working on it in my head...

... only to realize that it already sounds like some song i already know, by someone else.

never before have i ever had it happen in reverse, that i write something, and then literally YEARS down the road, come across a song that i know that there was NO way i could have heard before or during the writing of a song, but that it sounds IDENTICAL.

such is the case with the firstest song i almost wrote to completion, "hidden truth", and Dandy Warhols' "sleep". when i first heard the picking of the guitar and how it was going, the speed, the inflection and everything, how it does it normally one time through the chord progression, then rushes it a bit during the second... i was shocked that we had actually recorded my song, i certainly hadn't remembered it... then it clicked that i HADN'T recorded it.

freaking WEIRD.

any of The 'Stairs has access to the song, check it out.... it's freaking creepy. i was even singing along to it, but with the words i had written... definitely drastically different from theirs...
