Is this the most irritating song in the history of Earth, or what?

Just wondering.

It's like, take acid, get stoned, take more acid...drink a fifth of vodka, eat some mushrooms and take more acid....

...then go on stage.

Don't you mean... In the garden of eden?

I really dig this song, it's just been over played to death like most classic rock, but what to you expect, music sucks now.

But Hillary!!!! Opps wrong thread.
In the Garden of Eden rocks. Even more so after wondering around the cow pasture. It's like Pink Floyd's "Atom Heart Mother" too much music for one song.

It was a seminal piece of music. Almost a singularity. Up until the time that tune came out, the vast majority of radio music needed to be something like less then three minutes long. AM radio was paramount

The music that teens listened to prior to the mid sixties was all off of AM radio. It catered to teenagers singing love songs and racing their power cars. FM radio, in it's infancy was mainly for local weather and hog reports but was slowly morphing into what became known at the time as ''underground radio''. Where AM radio was by law, held to that two or three minute time frame, FM was not. it became the venue for artist to experiment, and make money, apart from that time limit.

The Chamber Brothers beat Iron Butterfly to the punch with '"Time Has Come Today'', an anthem that utilized heavy drumming and scary sounding laughter in breaking out of that short time limit. Where ''Time'' allowed people access to long songs, In A Gadda Da Vida beat it by a mile

Though I have not listened to it in years, I still have in on my music list right next to Ravel's Bolero.

Sorry you do not like it.

I don't know why but this is one of a few uncensored real rock songs that I could watch on a government tv channel during a socialist pro Soviet Union regime in other country when I was a kid. It's special.

Rare Earth, Ma is another good 'Jam'. Pink Floyd, Echoes and One of These Days as well.

The Doors, Grateful Dead, Its a Beautiful Day, Frank Zappa, and others, loved the jam. Lots of 'performance bands' loved to jam at concerts too, the ones with long songs on ether albums were my first choice for concerts. I knew they would put on a good show, the audience would erupt whenever they 'broke into a jam'.

Fire it up, lay back and dig it...

I never take acid, prefer rum to vodka, and if mushrooms are ever present, I remain free of them, so that someone in the room is always able to prevent a person from suffocating themselves with their own socks during whatever trip they might have gone on.

But I bloody LOVE that song and Iron Butterfly are, in my opinion, one of the most underrated bands of their era. You next to never hear anything about them, or even hear the song referred to, unless some movie maker wants to make damned sure you understand that the characters on screen, are supposed to be either high, making love, or both.

Also, its worth pointing out, that Blind Guardian, a "power metal" band of some significant skill, covered this tune to great effect, and I think it is probably one of the best metal covers ever played.



This cover was found on the Blind Guardian album, A Twist In The Myth.

Thanks, always willing to give new bands a listen. Here in states was on album “Fly”, at least on Apple Music. Found it on a 20 song hits album, so will give that a try to see what else they got going for them.

I like it too. A friend who passed away had it for his ring tone on his phone. It was pretty cool.

This was the first LP I ever bought. I was 9. It was awesome. I still love that melody line. And hey, drum solo! And my parents hated it, which made it even better.

Ironic the keyboard-singer in Iron Butterfly couldnt enunciate well....additionally, Jon Kay of Steppenwolf sang biker-anthem "Born to be Wild"...but doesnt have a drivers license-never did...because he has a life long vision disability. That fact usually crushes bikers when they learn that.

Humorously so..."In a Gadda Da Vida" sounds pretty fine...when on acid etc*
