Top Ten Most Psychedelic Songs Ever


The Contenders: Page 5XW

81When the Music's Over - The Doors

This song written and recorded by the Doors, was released on their second album in late 1967. This song is longer than most rock songs at the time, and this is a good thing. This song has elements of blusy psychedelic rock, and even progressive rock.

82See Emily Play - Pink Floyd

Some worthy contenders elsewhere on the list, for sure, but this is the greatest psychedelic song ever written, no contest.

This song is great! It is more psychedelic than the song, "Flaming."

83You Keep Me Hangin' On - Vanilla Fudge

Esp with the video images in back and strobe light show

84Journey to the Center of the Mind - Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes
85Chasing Shadows - Deep Purple

Great drum romp through the psychedelic jungle.

86House of the Rising Sun - The Animals
87Sunshine Superman - Donovan
88(I Know) I'm Losing You - Rare Earth
89Reverberation - The 13th Floor Elevators
90Calvary - Quicksilver Messenger Service

Such a cool song from a cool band. - Sepron64

91Strange Brew - Cream

A nice psychedelic combination and mix of heavy blues rock, and psychedelic rock.

Should be much higher lay people

92Daydream Believer - The MonkeesV1 Comment
93A Saucerful of Secrets - Pink Floyd

With Careful with that axe and Echoes, perhaps Set the controls of the heart of the sun and other Live at Pompeii pieces...after a total crazy part comes unbelievably beautiful part - Celestial voices, which I take as a small trip to heaven after all that drumming...

One of the craziest psychedelic instrumentals especially the drum solo part. Still a good song though if you're on drugs.

The true prophesy of the Universe. Fear he who finds the way!

94Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together In a Cave and Grooving With a Pict - Pink Floyd

This song is SUPER trippy. Lots of creepy animal sounds and an insanely long song title.

Not the best, but definitely one of the most psychedelic tracks ever made

95Through With You - The Lemon Pipers

Maybe a bubblegum group on the outside but this is whats inside the wrapper

Little known psychedelic tour de force. Shows what they could do when they cut loose from the constraints of commerciality.

96Castles Made of Sand - Jimi Hendrix
97Cirrus Minor - Pink Floyd
98Fire - The Crazy World of Arthur Brown

Why isn't this on the top ten? This song, artist, and instruments, are much more psychedelic than the overrated Beatles.

99Defecting Grey - The Pretty Things

You could say the Beatles and the Floyd started it up but the Pretties took it one step further.Listen to classic albums SF sorrow and Parachute and you'll agree.

100Cymbaline - Pink Floyd

A great mixture of pure psychedelic rock, and classical inspired deep progressive rock.
