Dream Police by Cheap Trick

This week’s Song of the Week was suggested by MIA Reader Lupa Moon: “From 1979, Cheap Trick was speaking to me with Dream Police. Is it about voices in my head? Do I think the shrink is in my head? “They live inside in my head‚Ķ They’re driving me insane” Sometimes shrinks ARE like spies… “Those men inside my brain‚Ķ Bet they’re spying on me” All the questions, the “mood surveys” “They won’t let me alone They persecute me” Shrinks are judge and jury when its question of 5150 “They’re the judge and jury all in one”…They’re coming to arrest me.”
