MusicFilter: I'm looking for ambient music that features short &/or fragmentary bits of monologue or narrative.

Tell me your favorite ambient musical pieces that have used bits & pieces of spoken word to create a dream-like narrative space. Here's some examples of what I'm looking for:
- Mind Soup
Little Fluffy Clouds
- The Orb
Jack And Jill (Selffish Remix)
- Funki Porcini
- Lemon Jelly
couple other considerations:
- for the purposes of this question ambient = electronica, dub, downtempo, chillout, folk &/or jazz instrumentals
- not really looking for complete spoken word or performance pieces
Thanks, hivemind! I know I'll appreciate whatever you can distill...
bonus subquestion! there's a piece I remember from awhile ago, but I don't know the title or the artist - it features a vocal sample that goes: "Who needs physics when we've got chemistry... chemistry, chemistry" - ring a bell, anyone?
