Oh well, worth a try. Today, let’s head back to the ’60s again with some music from Donavan.

Sunshine Superman – Donovan

All the pictures on this one are of Sue Lyon, who Donovan was dating in 1965. Apparently, the end of their relationship occurred when he *accidentally* slipped some LSD in one of her drinks. How does one accidentally slip LSD in your drink, anyways?

But, yes, this is a clear LSD-influenced track, as are a lot of his songs.

There is a Mountain – Donovan

The music video created to illustrate this song is rather fun…

Epistle To Dippy – Donovan

This is probably one of my favorite Donovan songs. This film is actually titled “What the Hell is this?”, and is by Robert Steinbrecher, who is also the lurking character in glasses. This film would warrent a WTF all by itself.

And of course, the lyrics are infinitely trippy. “Elevator in the brain hotel”? There are so many chaotic references that I just have to love it, though…
