|Static in your head

Quite often, when I'm drifting off to sleep, I get what I have come to call "Static" in my head. A lot of it is just random thoughts and things. Sometimes they don't even seem like my own.|
Sometimes, during this *static* I hear entire conversations of other people in my head. I'm not talking like, "Oooh I'm hearing voices, they are telling me to do scary stuff" type things.
The best way I can describe it is like, if you've ever been on the phone, and you pick up on someone elses signal. You can hear their conversation, sometimes most of it, sometimes its only bits and pieces, depending on your reception.
My voices are sometimes in other languages. Sometimes I can understand them to an extent. Whenever I realize this is starting to happen, I try to vaguely focus on what's being said. I notice it happens a lot when I'm just in a relaxed, almost meditative state, when I guess you could say my mind is clear and free of any focus at any. So, when I do try to focus and bring myself out of this haze, I tend to lose the "signal".
I've thought for a while that I'm dreaming while I do this, but I'm not. I'm awake; perhaps not fully awake, but I'm just kinda in this "zone".
So my questions are, in no particular order:
1.) Does anyone else sometimes feel this? Or something similar?
2.) Does this sound like any sort of condition or phenomenon that you've heard of?
3.) What type of things could I accomplish if I could hone this sort of meditation, if any?
