Do you remember this golden oldie from 1991?

 

  


  

“Set Adrift on Memory Bliss” by P.M. Dawn.

LYRICS:
Set adrift on memory bliss of you

Baby you send me

Baby you send me

Set adrift on memory bliss of you

The camera pans to a cocktail glass

Behind a blind of plastic plants

You found the lady with the fat diamond ring

Then you know I can't remember a damn thing

I think its one of those Déjà Vu things

Or a dream that's trying to tell me something

Or will I ever stop thinking about it

I don't know, I doubt it

Subterranean by design

I wonder what I would find, if I met you

Let my eyes caress you

Until I meet the thought of Misses Princess who?

Often wonder what makes her work

I guess I'll leave that question to the experts

Assuming that there are some out there

They're probably alone, solitaire

I can remember when, I caught up

With a past-time intimate friend, she said

"Bet you're probably gonna say I look lovely

But you probably don't think nothin' of me"

She was right, though, I can't lie

She's just one of those corners in my mind

So I just put her right back with the rest

That's the way it goes, I guess

Baby you send me

Baby you send me

Set adrift on memory bliss of you

Baby you send me

Set adrift on memory bliss of you

Careless whisper from a careless man

A neutron dance for a neutron fan

Marionette strings are dangerous things

I thought of all the trouble they bring

An eye for an eye, a spy for a spy

Rubber bands expand in a frustrating sigh

Tell me that she's not dreaming

She's got an ace in the hole

Doesn't have meaning

Reality used to be a friend of mine

Caused complete control, I don't take too kind

Christina Applegate, you gotta put me on

Guess whose piece of the cake is Jack gone

She broke her wishbone and wished for a sign

I told her whispers in my heart were fine

What did she think she could do

I feel for her, I really do

So I stared at the ring finger on her hand

I wanted her to be a big P.M. Dawn fan

But I had to put her right back with the rest

That's the way it goes, I guess

Baby you send me

Baby you send me

Set adrift on memory bliss of you

Baby you send me

Set adrift on memory bliss of you

Baby you send me

Set adrift on memory bliss of you

Baby you send me

Set adrift on memory bliss of you

Baby you send me

Baby you send me

Baby you send me

Baby you send me

Baby you send me

Set adrift on memory bliss of you

Baby you send me

Baby you send me

Baby you send me

Baby you send me

Baby you send me

Set adrift on memory bliss of you

Baby you send me

Baby you send me

Baby you send me

Baby you send me

Baby you send me

Set adrift on memory bliss of you.

    Golden Oldies usually refers to music exclusively from the 1950s and 1960s.

    I never heard it. I'm with Spunky, but add the 70s.

    A "golden oldie" from 1991?  Pfft!  More like a copper-newie.  (even if it was from last century)



    I never heard it.  Judging from the lyrics, I didn't miss out on much.

    I hate the term 'last century'.

    Not familiar in this form.  I recognize melodies from other songs embedded though.  Most obvious is the ah ah ah ah but can't spit out the name of the song from which it comes. This post was edited by Thriftymaid at September 5, 2021 8:53 AM MDT

    One is "True" by Spandau Ballet, that's the main melody that's being sampled.

    Yes, but I wasn't really a fan. I liked Spandau Ballet's 'True', though.
