The Top Ten

The End - The Doors
Everything about it made it a great song, the instruments, the lyrics, jim Morrison.


This band is never going to end it will last forever
I agree completely
[Newest]Yeah best among all

2White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane
How is this song not # 1?
Really cool tune and lyrics. Defined Woodstock 69


On my opinion best psychedelic band is the animals. They were trailblazers of this style. But Jefferson airplane I love as much as possible.
[Newest]This song is the most unique

3Tomorrow Never Knows - The Beatles
Love love love this, makes me think that the creativity of john lennon was at a point where it could surpass anything they had done before... When boom a few years later The Walrus comes out!
This should be among top 2
Lay down all thoughts and vote this number one, it is the best, it is the best.
[Newest]An acid trip for your ears.

4Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds - The Beatles
What do you want from psychedelic music? This song has it all.
Come on now. This song stands for LSD. It defines psychedelic music! Describing psychedelic pictures.
How this isn't in the top 10 blows my mind! The guitar alone brings you on a journey full of visuals and the slow to fast pace would make any beatnik psychodelically satisfied
[Newest]The first and the best

5Flaming - Pink Floyd
So incredibly happy to see this beautiful early floyd masterpiece on this list!


The Pink Floyd was better before the Dark Side of the Moon, released much later in March of 1973. This is not only one of my personal favourite Pink Floyd songs, but it is one of my favourite psychedelic rock and psychedelic pop songs, and perhaps, one of the best songs of all time.
Amazing, but where is interstellar overdrive and astronomy domine?
[Newest]I'd vote for this too. Love this one.

6Only a Northern Song - The Beatles
While this probably ISN'T the Beatles MOST psychedelic song... It's a damn good choice, congrats to whoever nominated it.
because it's amazing
Its psycedelic, but is also just one of the best and most underrated songs ever
[Newest]This song rules. trippy

7Purple Haze - Jimi Hendrix
Jimi Hendrix was not only a guitar god but he was an acid legend to. This song was about drugs written for people who took drug by a man who took drugs. How psychedelic can you get?


This whole song is about the psychedelic experience. Just listening to it makes you want to get high.
Unique song! Must be in the top 10
[Newest]Jimi Hendrix is great

8The L.S. Bumble Bee - Peter Cook & Dudley Moore

9Echoes - Pink Floyd
This Music is Just Average, please it's good this sacred music is known only to few people like you n me, it takes you to a paradise reminding of life's little things the rise, the fall, this music can't be re-created try it, even genius of PF would fail to create this magic again :) I have spent years listening to this song.. It's a music that fades n lightens but has a length to tell a mesmerizing story that is not forced on to you, the song doesn't hurry you on up, it lays a foundation where you automatically start thinking about life's real point, where things matter yet they don't matter much, hurt seems to dissolve and a new breath with full of life being blown into you.. People would say there's this weird part right in the middle that's psychedelic.. That's the backbone of the song I love all the parts please listen to full 24 mins song n don't disgrace it by listening it only 8 mins. That will be cheeky and disrespectful, believe me it takes time but I'm not publicizing neither I'm outta my mind
It is one of the best song made by pink floyd. Should be in top ten.
This song is here because of ignorance... people who haven't here it haven't vote for it
[Newest]Absolute magic that combines pro musicianship, thought provoking lyrical themes and a variety of genres that'll take you to places beyond your wildest dreams

10Inside People - The Freeborne

The Contenders

11Psychodrama City - The Byrds

12Love Is Only Sleeping - The Monkees
A terrific song that originally was to be paired with Daydream Believer as a 45. AMAZING Mike vocal!

13I Am the Walrus - The Beatles
This song is unrelentingly intense and perfectly captures the fractured psychedelic state of mind. "Smoke pot, smoke pot, everybody smoke pot... "
Deserves a higher place on the list!

14Hurdy Gurdy Man - Donovan
Great lyrics and just so weird. It really defined Donovans style


15Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
Great PF song, but come on, this isn't a psychedelic song. Examples for PF psychedelic songs are Astronomy Domine, Bike, Set the Controls... OK?
Amazing song in my opinion, everyone should listen to it. It really teaches you that school is a terrible place.
In my opinion the best pink floyd song and so sad.


[Newest]It is the best Psychedelic song ever.
What are you even talking about. Just because the song is about drugs does not mean it is psychedelic. You really should look into early days Pink Floyd and you will notice the difference. Aw, come on. Pink Floyd's best psychedelics songs are from Syd Barrett and there is no denying it.

16In-a-gadda-da-vida - Iron Butterfly
This is one of the most heavy non-underground American heavy psychedelic rock songs released back in 1968. This deserves much more credit, and this song, and this band is better than the overrated Beatles.
The organ, guitar, the singer. All so brilliant. Together they make one hell of a song


The full version has the best backbeat and grooviest instrumental break of all time.

17Love You To - The Beatles
George really knew how to play his sitar ^^

18Astronomy Domine - Pink Floyd
Brilliance... The first track from 'Piper' - I knew from the first few bars of Syd's Telecaster that my life would never be the same again...

19Sunshine of Your Love - Cream
Legendary guitar riff and great lyrics. Best song by cream


201983... (A Merman I Should Turn to Be) - The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Largely ignored, but truly a psychedelic classic, much more so than other cliche songs. It's the feeling of the song that really drives it home.
This should be in the top list, I think people have not heard it much.
