«Set Adrift on Memory Bliss» is the signature hit by P.M. Dawn from their debut album, Of the Heart, of the Soul and of the Cross: The Utopian Experience. Writing credit is given to Attrell Cordes (Prince Be of P.M. Dawn) and Gary Kemp of Spandau Ballet as the song is built around samples of their 1983 hit «True,» as well as samples from The Soul Searchers’ «Ashley’s Roachclip«. Spandau Ballet lead singer Tony Hadley made a cameo in the video to this song; appearing near the end of the video. The main drumbeat also samples from Eric B. & Rakim‘s «Paid in Full«.
