Was just cranking this amazing tune out. I actually used the 1:40 intro to make a video for my cover band, as well as play the intro before we start!!

Anyhoo, I've always been curious how this intro came to be. It doesn't completely go with the actual song. I'm sure very few (if any) people will have any input. But lets talk!!
You're right, "I Must Be Dreaming" seems to be a collage.

I've always thought the intro was inspired by Mac Cartney's "Live Or Let Die".

But what is really odd to me is why the song is titled "I Must Be Dreaming" instead of "YOU Must Be Dreaming".
You two are just the ones I should ask for help I think, as I am wanting to get the correct lyrics to this song for my lyrics site and I have never heard it. These are what I found on the sing365.com site and if you have the time would you look them over, tell me if they are correct? I'd love to add this one, but not when I can't check it out myself first.

I Must Be Dreaming[U]

Pay close attention
Don't listen to me from now
George'll be flying this one
And it's anyone's guess how he does
This is the right turn wrong universe
Taking me in full bloom
Fireball careful with that
There, see what you made me do

I must be dreaming or
We're onto something
I must be dreaming for
I don't fall in love lawlessly
I must be dreaming or
Pinch me to waking
So undeniably yours
As long as I'm losing it so completely

Incendiary glance
Be come and collide in me
Soon and in hearts
Oh while I go helplessly
Sky high magic eye sugar rushing

Don't stop

I must be dreaming or
We're onto something
Hey just watcha make me for
I don't fall in love lawlessly
I must be dreaming or
Pinch me to waking
So undeniably yours
As long as I'm losing it so completely

Euphoria
I can't take any more of yah
Euphoria
I can't take any more of yah
I'm losing it

I must be dreaming or
We're onto something
Hey just watcha make me for
i don't fall in love lawlessly
I must be dreaming or
Pinch me to waking
So undeniably yours
As long as I'm losing, I'm losing it
I'm losing it
I' must be dreaming (3X)
You've never heard IMBD, Tina?
Hey, it's here:

And it seems obvious the lyrics you found on 365 were from another I Must Be Dreaming.
I'd suggest you the following ones:


You must be dreamin
You think I love you
You must be dreamin
To think I love you

Ill never do it again
There Ive said it again
Really mean it this time
Goin down down down down

(chorus)
You must be dreamin
To think I love you
You must be dreamin
To think I love you

Yeah you had me once
Oh once and maybe twice
Gonna break your heart
Let you down down down down

(chorus)

When I (take it up) again
Now Im out on a limb
I know Ill never do it again
There Ive said it again
Really mean it this time

Oh my God god
Down down down down down

You must be dreamin
To think I love you

Gotta get out of here
If Im gonna last
I know Im losin fast
Im goin down for the count

Couldnt face the day
I couldnt face another night
Im sick of this ####
You bring me down down down

When I (take it up) again
Now Im out on a limb
I know Ill never do it again
There Ive said it again
Really mean it this time
Goin down down down

(chorus)
I've not heard it because of two frustrating little words: Dial Up :p
I will try to go to youtube and see if it loads for me... will for sure take an hour.

THANK YOU for the correct lyrics! I'll add them to my site as soon as I can. You guys here are so nice, helpful, and fun Smile

I did, the song I copied said it was by Cheap Trick and since I have never heard the song I had no idea what it should be. Does google really know more than the people do here about Cheap Trick?!?!?
Bernadicou Wrote:Yeah, but all these lyrics posts are getting on my nerves! hahaha, you should just make one topic called "lyrics." this website is much better than sing365.
Well I'll tell ya what Gus, I just finished asking for a while. I got 216 songs done and still have the Sgt. Pepper lyrics to do (since I have the CD I can check those for myself). I'll try and not be such a pest to you... but, youngster, perhaps you need to develop a bit of patience :p AND, if you see this old lady's name, just skip the whole thing and save yourself the pain it would cause.

[I'm just being a smart-aleck here - don't take me too seriously.]
It seems to me that since IMBD is off the Heavy Metal soundtrack then the crazy intro (and end) were done according to the producer's or director's spec's. It scores one of the animations so it has to fit the theme.

Besides for those of you too young to be of the Heavy Metal early age, it's just supposed to be trippy, man. Pop a pill, smoke a joint and ride the groove.

Ahhh, memories.
yes, it sounds like they had this song, and it didn't have a decent intro, or maybe they just changed it to this because of the needs of the movie, which is what the intro is made for. they gave ct 2 songs on the soundtrack, so i am not complaining.
Amazing song! I loved it as the bands intro.
I'm glad someone pointed out the "Live and Let Die" similarity. It's one of my favorite Trick songs and, without question, the best song on the HM soundtrack.
and it's IMDB, not IMBD. It stands for the Internet Movie Data Base.
