With all of these Top 13 Psychedelic Songs of the 1960s it is imperative to comprehend the importance and newness that these songs had upon first hearing them and then upon hearing them in the historic time they were released.
The fact that these songs are still desired by music lovers world-wide forty to forty five years later is a true testament to their classic stature and continued place in ongoing cultural evolution.
That said, here is thee sonic tribute to Psychedelic Sex through the Orgasmic Hard Rock epic of “Whole Lotta Love”.
Having taken psychedelic trips and experienced sex on psychedelics, this song was the closest musical interpretation to the over-the-top heightened sexual urges on psychedelics that held nothing back. There are moments when the aural pleasures performed (that’s aural, not oral – but representative of both) by vocals and instrumentals that are psychedelically sexually explicit with sound, lyric, emotion and sensory manifestation.
When I first heard Led Zeppelin II it was a perfect evolution from their debut LP but with Whole Lotta Love it was as if they were able to take every element of their style and ejaculate it into LSD-inspired extremes with beyond belief masterful effect.
At various times on psychedelics your libido takes over and it is almost mandatory to have sexual release, which is why having several girlfriends at the time was highly beneficial and this song really expressed what that part of the Trip was like – truly orgasmic.
At five and a half minutes Page, Plant, Bonham and Jones took us on a journey of carnal delight through a hard rock psychedelic trip like nothing before – Hendrix surely mastered and delivered – but this was the most intense hard acid rock to date that went over the top, back down and up past the last peak with the grinding psychological and physiological effects that you get when you’re peaking on acid and the sublime release of sensational sex.
This was no romantic song; this was a song of sex, savage sex, true Rock ‘n’ Roll that was unrelenting and psychedelic to the max. If you’ve been experienced then you know, if not, it still has the power to take anyone near that place of sexual psychedelic extremes.
A true essential Rock ‘n’ Roll Psychedelic masterpiece:
WHOLE LOTTA LOVE!
