In "Dream Song," a man moves into an apartment building that is plagued by a maniac.
Charles Kenyon is a writer who has just moved into a new apartment. One night, while he is trying to concentrate on his work, he is distracted by the music coming from the apartment next door. His neighbor seems fixed on playing the same record over and over again.
Not long afterwards, the janitor and a police detective visit Charles to tell him that one of his upstairs neighbors has been horribly murdered. Charles was home all night, but he didn't hear anything because he was working. The murder is distressing, but when Charles tries to sleep, the music starts up again from next door.
Soon, another neighbor is murdered, and the police return. Charles then begins to wonder about the mysterious man in the apartment next door. Who is he? Why must he always play the same record?
