We're voting on the original mix, of course. 8)

What's there to live for?
Who needs the peace corps?
Think I'll just DROP OUT
I'll go to Frisco
Buy a wig & sleep
On Owsley's floor

Walked past the wig store
Danced at the Fillmore
I'm completely stoned
I'm hippy & I'm trippy
I'm a gypsy on my own
I'll stay a week & get the crabs &
Take a bus back home
I'm really just a phony
But forgive me
'Cause I'm stoned

Every town must have a place
Where phony hippies meet
Psychedelic dungeons
Popping up on every street
GO TO SAN FRANCISCO . . .

How I love ya, How I love ya
How I love ya, How I love ya Frisco!
How I love ya, How I love ya
How I love ya, How I love ya
Oh, my hair is getting good in the back!

Every town must have a place
Where phony hippies meet
Psychedelic dungeons
Popping up on every street
GO TO SAN FRANCISCO . . .

Hotcha!

First I'll buy some beads
And then perhaps a leather band
To go around my head
Some feathers and bells
And a book of Indian lore
I will ask the Chamber Of Commerce
How to get to Haight Street
And smoke an awful lot of dope
I will wander around barefoot
I will have a psychedelic gleam in my eye at all times
I will love everyone
I will love the police as they kick the shit out of me on the street
I will sleep . . .
I will, I will go to a house
That's, that's what I will do
I will go to a house
Where there's a rock & roll band
'Cause the groups all live together
And I will join a rock & roll band
I will be their road manager
And I will stay there with them
And I will get the crabs
But I won't care
Because . . .


P.S. Too bad Ian Underwood's fine sax solo on this classic track was omitted from the original mix and it's only available on the Wackermanized Money.

I'll third that: Who Needs the Peace Corps?

I feel sorry for the guy whose favorite song on Side 1 is "Hot Poop". Only 10 options available for the poll, and Poop had to be flushed away. Alas.

I have to go with "Absolutely Free". The piano intro is sooooooo fekking nice.
"Shifting, drifting,
Cloudless, starless..."
I'm floating away just thinking about it... :o

True :o
The first word in this song is discorporate. It means to leave your body.

I voted for Flower Punk because I love the left/right dialogue during the last part of the song.....but now I'm sorry that I didn't vote for Harry, You're A Beast.....I really love that one.

OK, I'm the only one who loves 'Mom & Dad'...

I find that song heartbreaking.

So sad and so true. I picked it too.

It's tough because this album is perfect, front-to-back
