62 Psychedelic Classics: A Free Playlist Created by Sean Lennon

sean lennon psychedelic playlist

Last week, Rolling Stone pub­lished Sean Lennon’s list of 10 Lost Psy­che­del­ic Clas­sics. A con­nois­seur of Six­ties psy­che­del­ic music, Lennon told the mag­a­zine. “There are a hun­dred songs I could pick.” “It’s real­ly my favorite peri­od in rock & roll his­to­ry. Revolver and Pep­per are my favorite Bea­t­les records – that’s when every­one was try­ing hard­est to blow peo­ple’s minds.” He’s not kid­ding around when he says that his list could be much longer.

Over at Spo­ti­fy, we’ve found (cour­tesy of one of our Twit­ter fol­low­ers) a playlist of 62 psy­che­del­ic songs. Fea­tur­ing 3 hours and 32 min­utes of free music, the playlist lets you tap into songs by bands that had some pret­ty trip­py names. I cite as exam­ples, The Peanut But­ter Con­spir­a­cy and The Elec­tric Prunes. You’ll also find some more rec­og­niz­able names: Pink Floyd, The Beach Boys, and Alice Coop­er. Access the playlist on the web here, or start stream­ing it below. If you need to down­load Spo­ti­fy, grab the soft­ware here.

Bonus: At the bot­tom of the page, you can stream the new album by The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger, the band cre­at­ed by Sean Lennon and Char­lotte Kemp Muhl. The album, Mid­night Sun, has been called an exper­i­ment in “psy­che­del­ic blitzkrieg”.

    Arthur Lee & LOVE were the best — right up to the end too. Also: Jimi Hen­drix, Bob Dylan & lots of oth­ers. Lis­ten to “Mid­night Sun” by Love.

    Moody Blues, the albums from 1967 and 1968: “Days of Future Passed” and “In Search of the Lost Chords”. It’s a spir­i­tu­al-philo­soph­i­cal psy­che­delia that blows my mind. Good list, though.

    Sean is a gen­er­a­tion new­er. I lived this era, he brings fresh­er ears. And it’s his list, not mine. I find most of his choic­es were past their peak. But it was fun lis­ten­ing to most of it, and the mem­o­ries.
