Trippiest Beatles song


Recommended Posts

I'm going with "I am the Walrus" which is just an exemplary example of John's talent (it sounds like a really hard song (as in like heavy metal, not talent wise, though it did obviously require talent)) What I really like about it's "hardness" is the fact that it sounds the way it does using little to no electric guitar, the signature of hard rock! Lennon was an undeniable genious.

My first thought was to go with "Day Tripper" (for obvious reason) --

"Glass Onion" would be a likely favorite of mine.

I told you about strawberry fields

You know the place where nothing is real

Well here's another place you can go

Where everything flows.

Looking through the bent backed tulips

To see how the other half live

Looking through a glass onion.

I told you about the walrus and me-man

You know that we're as close as can be-man

Well here's another clue for you all

The walrus was Paul.

Standing on the cast iron shore-yeah

Lady Madonna trying to make ends meet-yeah

Looking through a glass onion.

I told you about the fool on the hill

I tell you man he living there still

Well here's another place you can be

Listen to me.

Fixing a hole in the ocean

Trying to make a dove-tail joint-yeah

Looking through a glass onion.

Another favorite is "It's all too much" from Yellow Submarine.

Yellow matter custard, dripping from a dead dog's eye.

Crabalocker fishwife, pornographic priestess

That has to be trippy..........

Only 2 other songs i can think of that are just as trippy

Lyle Lovett : rhymed ice water with flyswater

Ian gillian(w/ Black Sabbath):

Down there by the river

Where the heros sit with a

magic in their music as they eat raw liver

Could be a runner up

LOL, so sorry. Now I'm listening to Peppers.

I'm fixing a hole where the rain gets in

And stops my mind from wandering

Where it will go

I'm filling the cracks that ran through the door

And kept my mind from wandering

Where it will go

And it really doesn't matter if I'm wrong

I'm right

Where I belong I'm right

Where I belong.

See the people standing there who disagree and never win

And wonder why they don't get in my door.

I'm painting my room in the colourful way

And when my mind is wandering

There I will go.

And it really doesn't matter if

I'm wrong I'm right

Where I belong I'm right

Where I belong.

Silly people run around they worry me

And never ask me why they don't get past my door.

I'm taking the time for a number of things

That weren't important yesterday

And I still go.

I'm fixing a hole where the rain gets in

And stops my mind from wandering

Where it will go.
