I dreamed of a song with words and melody. When I woke I could still hear it. By the time I got out of the shower, I remembered the chorus as "here comes great renown". I don't get any results for that phrase in Google. Maybe my brain changed the lyrics in the time I was up, or maybe I made up a song in my unconscious. That doesn't seem so unusual as I do fairly often make up little songs. Though what that phrase means to me or my unconscious I am not sure. It mostly, like every use of the word renown, makes me think of a joke in a Buffy episode about renown and "do you have to be nouned before you can be renowned" and Willow says "Yes, first there's the painful nounting process." The song, when I first awoke and could still hear the melody, made me think of the Pet Shop Boys. I don't believe it's an actual song by them, but it may vaguely resemble "Opportunities." There's a line "we'll make lots of money" which is vaguely related in a way to "here comes great renown."
