Well I'm definitely stark, staring bonkers as we are listening to Junior Choice on Radio 2.

Nostalgic and, in places, tear jerking.

I still can't quite reconcile the LSD trip narrative "Puff The Magic Dragon" with its success as a Children's song!

Shucks The End is Nigh, you've ruined my childhood memories of "Puff the Magic Dragon"! I actually didn't know what it was really about but of course I'm not surprised about anything from the 1960s.

Here's a link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wik2uc69WbU

I have heard stories that the song "Macarthur Park" has some very dubious origins - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amzJDSsC2IA - but I can't think of anything other than a druggy scenario. At the time I just thought it was a send-up of over-the-top dramatic ballads.

Hi NBY

My eldest Son told me a long time ago that the Beatles "Lucy in the sky with Diamonds" was a reference to drugs, I bet there were loads of 60"s songs
like that.

Yes that's a well known one and the main initials spell LSD. However, I think it was Paul McCartney who said the song came about from a picture John's son Julian drew of a girl called Lucy. I think the first one is more likely!

I remember sitting down with my mother to watch the Beatles' film Magical Mystery Tour and discovering, like nearly everyone else, it would have helped to be high on drugs to understand it!
