white rabbit to samba pa ti
the coolest psychedelic song ever “go ask alice” – “i think she’ll know” and the sweetest guitar playing, it finds your soul & takes residence. had to replace my 1st choice of videos but the 2nd highlighted links when clicked will take you to my original choices. what i found to replace them are quite good also. the top highlight almost, if not as good a selection. it’s like having a mini-jukebox.
finding music videos that will work on my post from that era was pretty much impossible but like in The Life Of Brian: “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.” this music is the ultimate enjoyment. it was fun listening to all the choices. just watch out for some bad acid dropping videos. my computer crashed on one of the santana videos for “samba pa ti.”
now i am going to see if i can post this. i have been having some major trouble with wordpress for the past week and more recently in the past few days. it tells me when i go to post that the post cannot be found. wordpress support is no help. my home page is screwed up also. so i apologize to all the comments i haven’t gotten to answer. the hypomanic/compulsive need to fix things is on overdrive. haven’t been to bed for about two days now. i better not be up when my s/o gets up or i am in such major trouble.
White Rabbit – Jefferson Airplne (2nd choice but just as cool)
White Rabbit – Jefferson Airplane with Grace Slick – Woodstock August 17th, 1969
this one’s for all the Alice fans out there who couldn’t help but chase after the White Rabbit but “damn” could never ever catch that son of a bunnie. wasn’t grace slick the hottest back then.
Me & Bobby McGee – Janis Joplin (loved her so much)
Me & Bobby McGee – Janis Joplin
maybe some “Me & Bobby McGee,” Janis Joplin was on my first trip with me, also. in fact, the first time i heard her i was watching the colors of the stars stream across the sky. and the leaves were growing on the trees. and damned if it wasn’t in the middle of january in northern new england. mighty cold night but i don’t remember feeling a thing.
All Along the Watchtower – Jimi Hendrix (his guitar blew me away. jimi had soul)
All Along the Watchtower – Jimi Hendrix
i have a brother that when he was a teenager his idol was jimi heendrix and i am speaking the honest truth when i tell you that my brother had it in his soul to play with the same depth and intricacy as jimi. it was uncanny. unfortunately, we are no longer connected and i do not believe he is even able to conceive of playing any musical instrument at this time. if you’ve seen the movie “shine,” “a brilliant mind” and “rain man”you will understand.
Samba Pa Ti – Carlos Santana (one night while stoned & there was 8-track, i put in the 8-track with this song & tripped to it all night long. you will not believe where my dreams took me on this music.)
Samba Pa Ti – Carlos Santana
i don’t think there is any piece of music from back in the revolutionary hippie stoner times where everyone of our generation, well, almost everybody, just knew how to chill to it.
hope you enjoy the music. it is quite the trip back in time. i was so young back then and lived as close to the edge as possible without completely falling off. by jennifer kiley ~the secret keeper~
