Their Satanic Majesties Request

The real psychedelic album of the summer of love.

Their Satanic Majesties Request is a psychedelic rock album by The Rolling Stones recorded and released in 1967. Its title is a play on the "Her Britannic Majesty requests and requires..." text that appears inside a British passport. Although, initially dismissed as a poor attempt to match The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, the album is now considered one of psychedelic rock's greatest albums.

Which is overlooked still after forty years of glorification of the Beatles, and the
dissing of the Rolling Stones as the bad boys of Rock N Roll. Because they had Sympathy For The Devil.

Though I doubt Cheap Trick will be doing a Fortieth Anniversary cover of it.

It is a great album. Starting off with the psychedelic sci-fi anthem; 2000 Light Years From Home.

The song "
Sing This All Together" was used in the TV show Faerie Tale Theatre. It also contains a hidden track which may have given rise to later paranoia about back masking.

Why don't we sing this song all together?
Open our minds let the pictures come
And if we close all our eyes together
Then we will see where we all come from

Pictures of us spin the circling sun
Pictures of us show that we're all one

Funny things happen when you invoke Lucifer.

I wrote two, new, efficacious/avant-garde novels; I’d like for you to buy them (ISBNs, backcover, less than $40 for both). If God made me, wouldn’t that make God insane? Go to:
