Existential Psychedelic

    1. Tomorrow Never Knows (Rev)
    2. Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds (SPLHC)
    3. I Am The Walrus (MMT)
    4. Eleanor Rigby (Rev)
    5. Love You To (Rev)
    6. Because (AR)
    7. Blue Jay Way (MMT)
    8. Only A Northern Song (YS)
    9. Long, Long, Long (TWA)
    10. Good Night (TWA)
    11. A Day In The Life (SPLHC)
    12. Strawberry Fields Forever (MMT)
    13. Across The Universe (LIB )

    I arranged them in a specific way.  When a song ends, sometimes you want the same kind of melody to continue, and sometimes you want to throw in a completely different melody to distinguish the songs’ differences even further.  Tomorrow Never Knows as the first song is a no-brainer.  It’s not necessarily the best on the playlist but it’s a grandiose and energetic.  People usually like the first song on a record to give them a jolt of energy.   Juxtapose that with Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds which starts more mellow but eventually does pick up. 

    I put I Am The Walrus at 3.  Originally, it was going to be Strawberry Fields Forever , but I wanted to save that one for later since it has more of an emotional kick whereas I Am The Walrus is more of an experimental flashy transporting song which is good for early on in the playlist.  Eleanor Rigby may be the least psychadelic song on this list but it’s great, has a great message/story, sounds very unique and we had to include Paul in here with his darkest song.  I put I Love You To next, because, if you notice, the end of Eleanor Rigby and the beginning of I Love You To have the exact same melody. 

    Good Night was a tough one to place.  It’s more of an outro song, but in all honesty, I wouldn’t want that as the final impression since there were better songs on the playlist.  I did have an idea of having Good Night followed up by A Day In The Life .  Conceptually sleeping, about falling asleep and then waking up to your normal life.  The decision on the last song was a tossup.  Strawberry Fields Forever may be the most iconic song on the list (I had to save something special for the end), but for the last song I kind of wanted more of a dreamy poetic dirge to give the listener some closure, so Across The Universe was an obvious choice.

    1.) Tomorrow Never Knows
    2.) Blue Jay Way
    3.) Being For the Benefit of Mr. Kite!
    4.) I’m Only Sleeping
    5.) It’s All Too Much
    6.) Within You Without You
    7.) Strawberry Fields Forever
    8.) She Said She Said
    9.) Because
    10.) Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds
    11.) I Am The Walrus
    12.) Only A Northern Song
    13.) A Day In The Life

    These songs are what I feel have  the most psychedelic influence to them.  Very trippy, very pleasurable.
