    lol, good one! Although it probably isn't considered a "public performance" unless you have multiple voices in your head. ;P

    I hear music most of the time. And 85% of it tend to be Train songs.

    Sometimes, I do imagine things. Not fight scenes, but rather some sort of flight suit thing. And now it's centered more on Iron Man suit after the movie came out.

    Our brain likes to be busy. All the time. Internal dialogue, streams of consciousness and music are a product of that. In order to stop it, you need to give your brain a relatively easy (but not boring) background task. Listening to the radio helps, as does giving it a problem to mull over. Many of my modding solutions are found in this way.

    People who actually hear music may have neural synaesthetic cross-talk in the temporo-parietal region of the brain (usually the right hemisphere). It can also be the result of for instance epileptiform activity (in which case the experience is sporadic, short and vivid).

    People who hear voices telling them to kill Hanson just have good musical taste. :p

    I get the 'song in the head' loop occasionally. I also get what you were asking about. -When it's quiet I can hear a vague murmur of voices or music. It seems real and I often have to check that it's not something outside.:worried:
    It doesn't help that I have odd hearing. I can hear ultrasound, and used to freak out the hearing test people who visited school.
    Am I a candidate for the foil hat brigade, Dr. nexxo?

    It's kind of irritating actually. Our old TV had a LOUD high-pitched whistle that only I could hear. There's a local TV station with a cruddy signal that does it too.

    No, you just have sensitive hearing. I suspect that there are also auditory filtering issues --my theory is that your brain does not filter out the irrelevant ambient noise distortion enough (our senses are far from perfect; there is a lot of ambient crap from our own heartbeat/blood flow, neural misfiring, crosstalk and chatter, and brownian motion of air molecules bouncing off our ear drums) which it then tries to interpret as voices or music.

    There are more neurons running from the brain to the ears, than in the other direction. Hearing is a very active process...
