If you would like to see a better sound quality, Everybody’s Talking about Jamie is been transmitted live from the Apollo theatre in London to cinemas on 5th July.

I realize that even on the nights you don’t remember them, you are still dreaming, but for the most part, I wish I was one of those people who didn’t remember. Not only that, I seem to be that person who can’t have a happy dream, no matter what is going on. Perhaps that’s why I write. I’ve made the correlation before, and it has…
