I Fell Asleep Among the Flowers

I Monster neveroddoreven

“Who sings that song, I think it’s on a Verizon commercial, that goes ‘baby, I fell asleep amid the flowers, for a couple of hours’…?”

Although it sounds like the singer is saying “baby, I fell asleep amid the flowers,” actually the words are “Daydream, I fell asleep amid the flowers…”

The song is the compelling work of UK recording act, I MONSTER. I Monster is the British “electronic” duo comprised of Sheffield- based producers Dean Honer and Jarrod Gosling. Their smart, compelling songs have landed in a number of TV and film projects including ads for the aforementioned Verizon, Absolut, Cadillac, Ford, and Toyota. Notably, I Monster’s music was featured on the soundtracks of the 2007 major motion picture Shaun of the Dead and in TV’s The Heist, and Shark.

The band’s inventive and entertaining video for “DayDream In Blue” was nominated in 2001 for Video of the Year in the Q Awards, UK’s annual music awards presented by the music magazine Q.

The import album which contains “Daydream,” Neveroddoreven, is chock-full of hook-laden pop with a nostalgic twist.

Said one reviewer,”This is an album in which every song is a gem and completely unique. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes electronica and/or old sci-fi films….”

The reference to “old sci-fi films” probably was evoked by I Monster’s use of ear-catching electronic sounds, including the Theremin, the early proto-type of the synthesizer, a totally unique and fascinating “instrument” whose sound was made famous by the Beach Boys’ classic and 1966 #1 smash, “Good Vibrations.”

(And by the fact the band’s very name is derived from I, Monster, a 1971 British horror film.)

There is even a picture of what looks like Leon Theremin, Russian inventor of the device that makes odd sounds in an odd way (without being touched by the player!), on the band’s equally quirky and fun website, IMonstermusic.com.

Daydream In Blue Lyrics
(Words and Music by Dean Honer and Jarrod Gosling)

Daydream, I fell asleep amid the flowers, for a couple of hours,
on a beautiful day.
Daydream, I dream of you amid the flowers, for a couple of hours,
such a beautiful day.

I dream a dirty dream of ya baby
you’re crawling on the bathroom floor,
you float around the room and you’re naked,
then you’re flying out the bedroom door,
I dream a dirty dream
I dream a dirty dream

Daydream, I fell asleep amid the flowers, for a couple of hours,
on a beautiful day.
Daydream, I dream of you amid the flowers, for a couple of hours,
such a beautiful day.

I dream a dirty dream of you baby
you’re swingin from the chandalier
I’m climbing up the walls ‘cos I want ya
but when I reach ya, you dissappear,
I dream a dirty dream
I dream a dirty dream

I daydream
I daydream
I daydream

Daydream, I fell asleep amid the flowers, for a couple of hours,
on a beautiful day.
Daydream, I dream of you amid the flowers, for a couple of hours,
such a beautiful day.
