So, yesterday I stumbled upon a song called “The Red Telephone” by Love. To say the least…it’s super trippy. Nothing about the song really makes any sense. At one point the singer says “I feel real phony when my name is Phil…or was that Bill?”  The song ends with everyone chanting “They’re locking us up today…they’re throwing away the key. I wonder who it will be tomorrow; you or me?” If you’ve seen Taking Woodstock, you might remember this song from the acid trip scene (…But remember, drugs are BAD BAD BAD). Check out these other oddball songs! (Or just songs that fit in…kind of.)
