I joined this forum because I thought other people might like this kind of music, so I wouldn't feel like such an old retro fart. -Well, it looks like I wasn't wrong.........about others liking the music, at least....LOL.
-So I decided to curate these curiosities from days past, as filtered through the mind of today, see what lasts...

'Sunshine Superman' is my favourite: I remember hearing it a lot on 'Radio One' when I was little.

from before my time: The Flamingos -'I only have eyes for You'. Pre-psychedelic, but got the right feel, mystery of love and all that.

mind you, this psychedelic stuff is powerful magic, even U.S. propaganda went haywire for a while....

One of my favourite "psychedelic" songs:


The Beatles - Tomorrow never knows (clickedeeclick!)


Turn off your mind, relax and float down stream,
it is not dying, it is not dying.

lay down all thought, surrender to the void
it is shining, it is shining.

that you may see the meaning of within
it is being, it is being.

that love is all and love is everyone
it is knowing, it is knowing.

that ignorance and hate may mourn the dead
it is believing, it is believing.

but listen to the colour of your dreams
it is not living, it is not living.

or play the game existence to the end
of the beginning, of the beginning.


Sounds like a Mantra.

CREAM - Tales of Brave Ulysses

You thought the leaden winter would bring you down forever,
But you rode upon a steamer to the violence of the sun.

And the colors of the sea blind your eyes with trembling mermaids,
And you touch the distant beaches with tales of brave ulysses:
How his naked ears were tortured by the sirens sweetly singing,
For the sparkling waves are calling you to kiss their white laced lips.

And you see a girls brown body dancing through the turquoise,
And her footprints make you follow where the sky loves the sea.
And when your fingers find her, she drowns you in her body,
Carving deep blue ripples in the tissues of your mind.

The tiny purple fishes run laughing through your fingers,
And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the winter.

Her name is aphrodite and she rides a crimson shell,
And you know you cannot leave her for you touched the distant sands
With tales of brave ulysses; how his naked ears were tortured
By the sirens sweetly singing.

The tiny purple fishes run lauging through your fingers,
And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the winter.
