Who Wrote The First Psychedelic Song Anyways?

A interesting question came up today while I was conversing with a friend about psychedelic music. So I decided to hunt down the fathers so to speak of Psychedelic Music.

Psychedelic music started in the 1960’s with all that free love nonsense.  I never was to big into the hippy movement, but I sure did love a lot of the music that came out during that time period.

What set this type of music apart from other types of music was it’s eastern influence and use of rare instruments and all types of experimental sounds.

So I really couldn’t find the answer to what was the first song, but I did find out who was the first band that got labeled Psychedelic Rock

The 13th Floor Elevators

I didn’t stop their I figured while I am at it I would search out some of the more known music.  When you say the words Psychedelic music many people instantly think Beatles, probably because of tracks like Lucy In the Sky Of Diamonds.

Jimi Hendrix came on the scene like a flash of lighing, he was only on the scene for a short time , but in that time he made an explosion in music that is still felt today.

Are You Experienced

Totally overplayed but they certainly left their mark on the Psychedelic era Jefferson Airplane was pretty blunt with their message in the classic White Rabbit

This list wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t mention this next band, The grateful dead had a huge following and I remember even in the late 80’s and early early 90’s people in my school where all about them. So ya you can say they made a huge impact on people

Seriously though all these bands are all well and good, and I am sure I could of listed dozens more, but none of those could even touch this next band. They took Psychedelic to a whole new realm of sound all together

Pink Floyd – Shine On You Crazy Diamond

So where are we at today? Has the Psychedelic music vanished? So you gotta love youtube I started searching to see what is out there today who got their influence from bands like this. Here is a band that never made it main stream but dam they write good tracks..

Well that wraps up this psychedelic adventure, until next time… Oh and if anyone knows who actually wrote the first psychedelic song I would love for you to leave a comment and tell me. I just can’t seem to find the answer

Online Marketing Blog – It Isn’t all It’s Cracked Up To Be?

At this point I have been marketing online for about 9 years. I have learned a ton of stuff on the subject and I must tell you, marketing on the internet isn’t for the weak of heart.

Tip: Using an Online Marketing Blog is the best way to start getting indexed in search engines.

In theory it sounds like a great idea, but for the first 4 years I struggled to just learn the basics.  The stuff they teach you in traditional school is pretty worthless when it comes to learning this craft.

I recommend spending some time on google and researching the basics of online marketing, there is a ton of free information out there on just about every subject.

A huge mistake I see people make all the time is they want to start an online business but they have no real direction.  Don’t go any further in this industry until you know exactly what it is you want to do.
