Purple haze all in my brain
Lately things don't seem the same
Actin' funny, but I don't know why
'Scuse me while I kiss the sky

Purple haze all around
Don't know if I'm comin' up or down
Am I happy or in misery?
Whatever it is, that girl put a spell on me

Help me
Help me
Oh, no, no

Talkin' 'bout heart 'n' s-soul
I'm talkin' about hard stuff
If everybody's still around, fluff and ease, if
So far out my mind
Something's happening, something's happening

Ooo, ahhh
Ooo, ahhh
Ooo, ahhh
Ooo, ahhh, yeah!

Purple haze all in my eyes, uhh
Don't know if it's day or night
You got me blowin', blowin' my mind
Is it tomorrow or just the end of time?

Help me
Ahh, yea-yeah, purple haze, yeah
Oh, no, oh
Oh, help me
Tell me, baby, tell me
I can't go on like this
You're makin' me blow my mind, mama
N-no, nooo
No, it's painful, baby

One candidate for a new and vastly more appropriate Donald Trump campaign song. What's better yet? Folsom Prison Blues? We can hope, can't we? 
70's Rock at it's best! 
Everybody in my mushrooming multitude of churches be salsa dancing to this fruitcake cover version—


What a refreshing song, after that Muse thing.
These guys rock, who are they!
Not the album cover I have.. really who cares.
Still get chills

The Man was the BEST

Easy ten 
"'Scuse me while I kiss this guy" - sure thing, Jimi, go ahead and do your thang. No tongues, now :o)
I saw Jimi Hendrix several times in concert an went Wood Stock. I was around back then. He was the greatest guitar player of all time. So sorry Eric Clapton he's got it all over you.
Play. More. Often.
changed rock and roll forever, sorry Elvis, you were a changing  force too
This hasn't been played here in nearly a year......

I hardly ever use headphones, but I am now, and I could have sworn I heard Jimi cough right before he started singin'... :think: ...always something new to discover :cheesygrin:
Yup he coughs. I heard it too.

excuse me while I kiss this guy! is it sacrilege to admit to liking the zappa version too?
It's never wrong to admit liking Frank! :biggrin:
The Cure does a couple of covers of this, one slow and trippy and another more rocking. Both are very good, giving due honor to the original but at the same time, definitely the Cure's!

OY! How about leaving this stuff to XM Radio's decades channels? Just because it is a classic, doesn't mean we 'need' it here. Enough OLD music. Sorry, I mean classics.
