The Electric Prunes I Had Too Much To Dream

The Electric Prunes I Had Too Much to Dream (Last Night)

Garage Rock

This song about a man who wakes up with a hangover and finds his lover gone was written by Annette Tucker and Nancie Mantz. (Annette Tucker also had success as a songwriter for The Brogues, The Knickerbockers, Nancy and Frank Sinatra and others.) The Electric Prunes recorded it late in 1966, and in 1967 it rose to #11 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and #49 in the U.K. They released it as a single backed with “Luvin’/” and on their 1967 debut album titled The Electric Prunes.

The Electric Prunes formed in Los Angeles in 1965, originally calling themselves The Sanctions.  At the time of this song, the group consisted of James Lowe, Ken Williams, James “Weasel” Spagnola, Mark Tulin, and Preston Ritter.

Here are the lyrics to “I Had Too Much to Dream (Last Night) by The Electric Prunes:

Last night your shadow fell upon my lonely room
I touched your golden hair and tasted your perfume
Your eyes were filled with love the way they used to be
Your gentle hand reached out to comfort me
Then came the dawn
And you were gone
You were gone, gone, gone

I had too much to dream last night
Too much to dream
I’m not ready to face the light
I had too much to dream
Last night
Last night

The room was empty as I staggered from my bed
I could not bear the image racing through my head
You were so real that I could feel your eagerness
And when you raised your lips for me to kiss
Came the dawn
And you were gone
You were gone, gone, gone

I had too much to dream last night
Too much to dream
I’m not ready to face the light
I had too much to dream
Last night
Last night

I had too much to dream last night
Too much to dream
I’m not ready to face the light
I had too much to dream
Last night
Last night

Oh, too much to dream
Oh, too much to dream
Too much to dream last night
Oh, too much to dream
Oh, too much to dream
Oh, too much to dream
