Top Ten Most Psychedelic Songs EverIndiechild We know almost every band of the 60's made at least one psychedelic song, the Beatles, the Kinks, the Doors. So what is THE most psychedelic song ever made?
The Top Ten
Everything about it made it a great song, the instruments, the lyrics, jim Morrison. - Indiechild
This band is never going to end it will last forever
I agree completely
Long trips to desert and taking peyote(mescalin), Jim would often come across truths of life. The End is a list of the truths.V 43 Comments
How is this song not # 1?
Really cool tune and lyrics. Defined Woodstock 69 - Indiechild
On my opinion best psychedelic band is the animals. They were trailblazers of this style. But Jefferson airplane I love as much as possible.
Amazing voice, rhythm, deeper music.V 22 Comments
Damn, this song's should be on top 3.
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!
Turn off your mind, relax and float this UPstream. Should be top, so far ahead of its time, creativity in its purest form, draws inspiration from such diverse fields. I loves it lots and lots and lots x
This song should definitely be the 1st on the list. They were the pioneers of psychedelic rock(in my opinion). They were higly experimental and they were the first ones to incorporate a sitar in a pop song.V 24 Comments
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? - Indiechild
Nothing compares to Hendrix and his guitar work. When I saw his guitar at the EMP I felt this aura of passion and love. I think of all the black musicians he inspired. Seattle still is the best town for rock music. It's a shame he was so involved in drugs like most of the artists from there. He will be missed.
This whole song is about the psychedelic experience. Just listening to it makes you want to get high.
Not just the best psychedelic rock song of all time...V 9 Comments
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?
In my opinion the best Pink Floyd song and so sad. - Indiechild
Comfortably Numb, while it is a great song, is about a Fever- This is Proven by Roger Waters stating so and the lyrics state so
Best song everV 15 Comments
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
Comment who says that this is not about LSD, look at L ucy S ky D iamonds!V 12 Comments
This song is unrelentingly intense and perfectly captures the fractured psychedelic state of mind. "Smoke pot, smoke pot, everybody smoke pot... "
This song's lyrics mean nothing together but everything alone in John's twisted mind which is the genius behind it. Layers of subtle psychedelic sounds, King Lear lyrics. Love version brings out more clarity to layers hidden on original recordings
Absolutely perfect - like many Beatles pieces...but miss the trippy mood...that I can find in doors, floyd etc...perhaps it's there but I can't hear it
#8? Easily a contender for #1. Certainly far more psychedelic than The End by the DoorsV 4 Comments
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 ...more
"It's not just a song... rather, it's a journey." That's what my friend said about it and he was right. you just don't listen to a good song, it takes you places, man! you just sit down and relax and try to enjoy the journey, The journey through the planets and the galaxies of the universe. Try to feel how small you are compared to stars and galaxies and how gigantic you are compared to the Quarks, Leptons and other subatomic particles.
It's the best ever made by a band in the history of mankind. For me at least.
It is one of the best song made by Pink Floyd. Should be in top ten.
Now this is instrumental music; takes you on a journey into your soul. Best companion of the pot smoker.V 21 Comments
Legendary guitar riff and great lyrics. Best song by cream - Indiechild
Possible the best-known guitar riff next to Smoke on the Water.
Strange brew too
This is the greatest psychedelic song of all time. It's like taking a trip through the universe with a man (Syd barret) that has traveled it well.
This needs to me #1. It is a journey through the universe. This is not just a song, but a psychedelic masterpiece, more psychedelic than comfortably numb and and echoes, and everything above it. Needs to have that #1 spot, - Kyledren
Piper at the gates of dawn is the best Floyd album, and this is the best song on that album!
What how isn't it #1? Com on this is the definition of psychedelic!V 7 Comments
The organ, guitar, the singer. All so brilliant. Together they make one hell of a song - Indiechild
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 full version has the best backbeat and grooviest instrumental break of all time.
Its not psych rock, its hard rock. - zxm
Solo not by Beck; it was Jimmy Page during his studio period. However, if Beck had done it, it might have been even greater!
Great lyrics and just so weird. It really defined Donovans style - Indiechild
The Beck solo transforms a folk song into a major experience.
too goodV 4 Comments
Listen to the end of the song and you'll know why it needs to be number #1. Psychedelia isn't all about hippies, trust me being a young man in London in the 60s I know this. It is about creativity and a different style of rock that changed a lot. This is psychedelia. British psychedelia is better than American, trust me. Having also known Syd Barrett he was not very hippy, but more a child's heart in a mans body.
This song is a great blend of psychedelic rock and space rock. This song is very psychedelic in my opinion, and is very inflencial to psychedelic music, space rock, the Pink Floyd's later work in the 1970's, punk rock, grunge, and progressive rock. This song is underrated. I love this song!
This guys, this people, this song, is the best and powerful psychedelic ever created... Lucy in the sky with diamond is not psychedelic...
Pink Floyd.. They created the psychedelic genre..
I searched for something like this for years, and I have to say that this is in my opinion the most psychedelic song ever created. Take a trip through universe and subconciousness with this one. Of all of the rock of 70's, it represents the biggest masterpiece in it's kind.V 4 Comments
So incredibly happy to see this beautiful early floyd masterpiece on this list! - braindamage
Alone in the clouds all blue... Lying an an eiderdown! Yippee! You can't see me, but, I... Can... You... !
Amazing, but where is interstellar overdrive and astronomy domine?
This song is so weird yet so awesome.V 12 Comments
A far greater psychedelic song than his more famous Purple Haze, 1983 has the capacity to transport you to a surreal land, which is what psychedelia is all about in my opinion.
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.
A true sleeperV 5 Comments
The most underrated band of the 60's. The lyrics are so eerie and odd you just can't listen to it without being hypnotised by it. "we're all normal when we want our freedom" Amazing - Indiechild
This song consumes me
They're locking 'em up today
they're throwing away the key
I wonder who it'll be tomorrow-
you or me?..
This song got Strawberry Alarm Clock famous. It was released in 1967 and this is one of the most famous psychedelic song coming from the American West Coast. This song, and especially this band, is underrated.
Best psychedelic song ever. Should be #1. This song has everything that makes psychedelic rock, psychedelic.
Clearly should be a Top Ten entry...
The instant I hear this, it brings back a whole entire timeline of that happy, happy time. I was 14, but had older bros... good times.V 4 Comments
Best psych band ever
Its just classic, why the hell not?!
Better song than white rabbit
This is a great song. Even better than White Rabbit. - Beatlesboy9
Lou reed has the most distinct and amazing voice. - VaticanCameos
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.
This will be played on my funeral. Magnificent song
Folk rock, hard rock. Not psych rock. - zxm
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
Best single of all time. Love it
One of my personal favorites of all time, but it's a protoprog song not a psychedelic one
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.
This should defitnetly be at number 1! Great song from the greates band ever
Should be a lot higher
If not number one, then in the Top 3.
,nothing is real"V 1 Comment
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
This song rules. trippyV 4 Comments
You need to hear it!
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.
One of the first
Coming down from a trip, watching the rain pour from outside my window. And I was just so happy due to the experience that for me it was a "sunny" happy day even though I could see the rain.
Reminds me of Vietnam, great song to trip do, brings very good vibes.
This I believe will jump to the top of the list, if you know what it means. ahh the lyics, ahh the rhythm. no waste.
Great song although not truly psychadelic
Does a remarkable job of actually capturing the flavor of an acid trip.
Absolute essence of the psychedelic sound.
That cats something I can't explain! Beautiful song
It should be much higher on the list man.
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.
A terrific song that originally was to be paired with Daydream Believer as a 45. AMAZING Mike vocal!
Classic, very chill, and trippy
This song, among with many other songs on Cream's great 1967 album, has a great psychedelic riff.
Drugs and sex
Definitely an overlooked song because of its lack of popularity in the United States. The Small Faces were an underrated band.
Really cool, weird, beautiful and anything else that can describe this awesome song - Indiechild
Should be Top 10. The music and lyrics are totally psychedelic.
It still stands as classic Psych-Alicious tuuunes ♫V 2 Comments
You gotta listen this band
Awesome-Ness, I like it
Completely underrated music from the best psychedelic rock band in the new century
George really knew how to play his sitar ^^
A pure psychedelic journey
Good Vibrations is Phsychedelic
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.
#1 on my list!
Should be Top 10. The music couldn't be more psychedelic.V 1 Comment
