Ah, the 60s. What an era! I grew up with the sounds of the 60s, but being a child of the 90s meant I didn’t grow up with the, uh, culture of the 60s. Being a child of the 90s meant I had no idea who actually performed this song (for the longest while, I thought it was Rod Stewart because the vocals sounded sort of similar), and also meant that I had to endure the inevitably atrocious cover.
Nothing screams psychedelica more than that groovy flange effect used in the bridges. In fact, it’s this particular effect (and the name of the song) that stuck in my mind more so than the less than child-friendly lyrics, thankfully.
