Eight Miles High

Released in '66, Eight Mile High is one the best works from the Byrds. This song created lots of controversy due to its lyrical content. Most people though Eight Miles High is about drugs, but the truth is the Byrds wrote this song after their first trip to London and the lyrics are based on the monotone scenery of the city. "..grey grey town known for its sound.." The band was doing drugs but if they admit to it the song will be banned from Radio and TV broadcast which happen after a radio station reported the song for indulging drug use. As soon as one station decided not to play it, the rest followed and thus making it drop out of the charts. For the resurrection of good psycho music, here it is Eight Mile High - Byrds
