The Psychedelic Experience – December 18, 2014 – A Christmas Gift For You From The Psychedelic Experience


“There’s no Christmas song,” said the Professor, “that I simply must hear.”
Mellow Yellow knew then that his mission was clear.

He must find a song to bring the Professor out of his holiday rut.
But what tune could he find for this grumpy psych nut?

He scoured his record collection from the bottom to the top.
He combed every genre from the blues to bubblegum pop.

Not a note was found from the psychedelic East or West Coasts.
It seemed he would never find a carol for his cheerless co-host.

Then he heard a sound rising out of his headphones.
It was a guitar with a crazy fuzz tone!

This was a Christmas song that was far from lame.
This one had a fuzz break that was freaking insane!

Mellow Yellow ran to the studio right quick!
He grabbed the Professor and said, “Check out this guitar lick!”

And the Professor, with his head hanging low,
Stood puzzling and puzzling. “How could it be so?”

It wasn’t George Michael or Kenny G!
It wasn’t Amy Grant or even Bing Crosby!

He puzzled and puzzled til his puzzler was sore.
Then the Professor thought of something he hadn’t before.

Maybe Christmas music, he thought, doesn’t have to be a bore.
Maybe Christmas music, can be a little bit more!

Tune in to our Psychedelic Christmas special and get your holiday fix with Christmas songs you won’t hear anywhere else! Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays! Stream below or download here.
