Top Ten Most Psychedelic Songs Ever


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Revolution 9 - The Beatles

It's easy to say they were high when they made this.

A strange song that defines The Beatle's psychedelic song writing.
Very strange song indeed.

23Within You Without You - The Beatles
24Strawberry Fields Forever - The Beatles

25Mr. Tambourine Man - Bob Dylan

Hunter S Thompson said that this song was the "hippy anthem". Truly a great song. It was hard to pick something over Jefferson Airplane, but this was the perfect song.

26A Whiter Shade of Pale - Procol Harum

I like this song, and I love this band. Procol Harum released this song as a single, and on their first self-titled album in the same year, and that would be in 1967. This song has psychedelic aspects, however, it has classical aspects as well, among with baroque pop and baroque music. These mixtures may form some progressive rock music. So overall, great song, but it is much more progressive than psychedelic in it.

Defined British psychedelic music. Classic song - Indiechild

One of my personal favorites of all time, but it's a protoprog song not a psychedelic one

28Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

This will be played on my funeral. Magnificent song

29Three Little Birds - Bob MarleyV1 Comment
30Psychodrama City - The Byrds
31Eight Miles High - The Byrds

This is an early example of early mainstream psychedelic rock. This song was released in 1966, and was considered by many Americans to be influencial to psychedelic rock songs later on. For example, the song "Dance The Night Away," recorded and written by Cream the next year in 1967, was influenced by Eight Miles High. Great song!

This was so early, it was banned for using the word high! Great feedback drumming.

322000 Light Years from Home - The Rolling Stones

Does a remarkable job of actually capturing the flavor of an acid trip.

Absolute essence of the psychedelic sound.

33Inside People - The Freeborne
34Grantchester Meadows - Pink Floyd

That might be the best song to be stoned to alone. You forget about all worries and your spirit is just in another world. Totally psychedelic, but not cliché psychedelic.

35Love Is Only Sleeping - The Monkees

A terrific song that originally was to be paired with Daydream Believer as a 45. AMAZING Mike vocal!

36Lucifer Sam - Pink Floyd

That cats something I can't explain! Beautiful song

It should be much higher on the list man.

37Have You Ever Seen the Rain? - Creedence Clearwater Revival
38The L.S. Bumble Bee - Peter Cook & Dudley Moore
39Flash Delirium - MGMT

Completely underrated music from the best psychedelic rock band in the new century

40Pictures of Matchstick Men - Status Quo

That is my favourite psychedelic rock song ever! I think, the song fits to the Flower-Power-Generation well.
Pictures Of Matchstick Men is and stays the best psychedelic song ever!

Top 10 psychedelic rock song. This is one of those songs that you can picture listening too while you're getting stoned.

Should be Top 10. The music couldn't be more psychedelic.
