Electric Prunes - I Had Too Much To Dream Lyrics
Yeah, funny story: I was hanging out on the Garageband.com forums in February of 2005 and ran across this guy, Daniel P. Hudelson, who had the phrase "I had too much to dream last night" as his sig line. I thought it sounded cool, wrote it down, and forgot about it for a few weeks. I eventually wrote a song about the phrase.
Then, we recorded it, and I felt like I ought to contact the guy I swiped the phrase from, and thank him, at the very least. He writes back, somewhat embarrassed, that he'd swiped the line from the Electric Prunes!
Well, I was a little taken aback, but I checked out the Prunes' song on Amazon, to see if I'd inadvertantly taken anything else unbeknownst to me, other than the title. Nope. Completely different. But I thanked Dan and the Prunes in the liner notes, anyhow. You can see for yourself, if you buy a copy.
Oh, and you can check out the song itself at the band's MySpace account at http://www.myspace.com/makemeshiver
