Dreamland

Dreamland is the first track on the The Time's fourth album Pandemonium. It is a skit that starts of with a music box playing a bit of the nursery rhyme and lullaby 'Rock-a-bye Baby', echoing the end of The Time's previous album Ice Cream Castle, which ends with multiple music boxes playing that song and being shut off one by one. Suggesting a dream it then segues into part of the introduction to The Time's reunion performance during the 6th Annual Minnesota Black Music Awards held at the Roy Wilkins Auditorium in St. Paul, MN on 2 October 1987. There is more snoring and what now appears to be Morris Day is woken up from his dream by the telephone ringing. He answers the phone with his infamous exclamation of 'What time is it?'. It then ensues to (Morris arriving to) a club scene with some lame music playing and Morris switching the record that is playing for Pandemonium, the album's first proper song.
