GTC might be the quintessential hippy song (if we ignore that one by Scott McKenzie), but my favourite by far is WIAWSNB.

First song that come to mind for me

"Truckin" "Busted down on Bourbon Street, stood up like a bowling pin.....

Going to California might qualify but I never actually thought of zeppelin

as hippy music.

My second song that comes to mind would be "White Rabbit" B)

I would agree that I don't consider their music to be in hippie style, but MMH does refer to hippie happenings. I've always thought of Within You Without You to be very hippie. I just see this song being played in a smoke filled room with beaded curtains and black lights.

I voted OTAFA because it reminds me of San Fransisco. I don't really think of Zep when someone says hippie music. I think earlier like Janis, Hendriz, Jefferson Airplane, etc. Robert Plant lookslike a hippie though.

Good point. I never thought of that one. He must have been on some pretty potent stuff at the time.

Misty Mountain Hop, baby!

"Walkin' in the park just the other day, baby, What do you, what do you think I saw? Crowds of people sittin' on the grass with flowers in their hair"

...So I'm packing my bags for the Misty Mountains

where the spirits go now,

over the hills where the spirits fly"

:hippy: :hippy:

I always think of "Love the one you're with" and that Canned Heat song as quintessential hippie songs :hippy:

100% agree! And not just Robert's singing, Jimmy's playing evokes hippie as much as anything I've ever heard. Makes me want to take off my bra, put on a gypsy skirt, and dance around waving curliques in the air with my hands ... free love, man. :hippy:

I voted on Ramble On, but There's a lot of other bands that sounds much more Hippy than Zeppelin, but Plant was Certainly very flower power!

The one that immediately comes to my mind (don't know thw group) is that one that goes:

Come on, people now

Smile on your brother

Everybody get together

Try to love one another right now

I admit it, I love that song! :hippy::hippy::hippy::bagoverhead::bagoverhead::bagoverhead:

Never thought of Zeppelin as hippy music, but no doubt they were groovy.

Did any of you guys see that 100 greatest hard rock artitsts on VH1 a few years ago? (The #2 band was Sabbath). I just cracked up when Ozzy was talking about all the hippies and the flower power, San Franciso scene...as compared to Black Sabbath and Birmingham, England. I wish I could remember what he said, but I busted out laughing.

Norman Greenbaum's Spirt in the Sky

"I got a friend named Jesus"

Best guitar sound ever, at it will only work for that song.

This is my pick for best hippy song:

Revival, Allman Brothers Band

People can you feel it? love is everywhere.

People can you hear it? love is in the air.

We're in a revolution. dont you know we're right.

Everyone is singing. yeah! there'll be no one to fight.

People can you feel it? love is everywhere.

I love the live at filmore east version :thumbsup:

A couple more Green Tamborine

Matchstick Men

Rainy Day Women

Hell we could go on for ever when you think about it. Just about anything from that era could be considered a "Hippie Song" Purple Haze is in my mind
