Daydream (Lovin' Spoonful)

12 MAY 1966

The wonderful single ‘Daydream’, by the Lovin’ Spoonful, was at its peak US Billboard Hot 100 position of #2, their third consecutive Top Ten there. It also reached #2 as their breakthrough hit in the UK.

The song was taken from their second album 'Daydream' and had an 'olde-tyme' feel that was quite popular at the time. The lyrics of disconnecting from the real world could easily have been a reference to getting stoned, and a foretaste of the upcoming Summer of Love.
