One out of four songs that were featured in the 1967 movie, “Psych-Out”.
This one accompanied the last scene where the female deaf character (Susan Strasberg) gulps down an extra dose of STP and she flashes more than just a bad trip. More like a world explosion inside of the mind with everything around her igniting with fire. Buildings, telephone poles, from out of bricks and cement sidewalks. Spinning out of control then landing her some how onto a freeway with more fireballs blazing at her (I’m now experiencing this too, it’s called menopause), in realty headlights from cars.
One big exaggerated hallucination…. I loved it!
And the entire soundtrack was outstanding.
Released off the album Incense and Peppermints 1967.
