. . .
I’ll admit that I slept on P.M. Dawn during the overstuffed musical year of 1991, partly because I was kinda overwhelmed with everything that was going on in my life, but also because I wasn’t all that wild about their one big hit, “Set Adrift on Memory Bliss,” probably because it relied heavily on a sample of another song I never really liked, Spandau Ballet’s “True.”
I’ve softened on both songs (though you won’t be seeing “True” in this blog), but when I finally went back to explore P.M. Dawn’s catalog in the wake of Jesus Wept, the song that struck me from their debut Of the Heart, of the Soul and of the Cross: The Utopian Experience was “Reality Used to Be a Friend of Mine.”
