Saturday Night me and my best friend Alex was at our little neighborhood watering hole. Friday and Saturday they have a DJ. The DJ's name is Chuck, he's about 48-50 yr's old and also does Kareoke. He is a friendly guy, and will play any song that he has upon request.
Chuck is quite impressed with my musical trivia skills, and every so often tries to stump the G-Man. Last night as I was downing a Scotch on the rocks, Chuck sneaks up behind me and says, " OK, I'll buy you a drink if you can answer this Trivia question," What song was the 1st Psychedelic Song?"...I thought for a minute, but before I could answer his question, a real Pseudo Knowitall that I drink a few with named Barry, pipes up with Inna-Godda-da-Vita!! Chuck immediately agree's, declares that is the next song to be played, and orders Barry a beer!
I quickly turned to him and said..."Thats not correct though". "The first generally regarded Psychedelic Album was Surrealistic Pillow by the Jefferson Airplane"!! " It had such great hits on it as 'Somebody to Love', and 'White Rabbit', and it was released in 1967".
They both disagreed , and walked away. I shook my head in disgust, smiled, and sipped on my drink. About 10 minutes later, Chuck sheepishly came up to me and said softly....."You were right. That album was released 2 years before Iron Butterfly"! I smiled and said, "Yes I know, that was the first year that I ever smoked a joint."......Alex looked at me and and declares...

Elton John..." Candle in the Wind 1997"
Jewell..." You were meant for Me"
