Some Velvet Morning

Okay who's familiar with this very oddball piece of psychedelia from Lee Hazelwood and Nancy Sinatra?

Very oddball.
Effective and spooky.

Hazelwood's scorched earth vocals and 'More hungover than Kristopherson ever thought of being' lyrics against the space cadet verse sung by Sinatra somehow worked.

Hello Hello--

I'm real familiar with it! Haven't heard it lately but always loved it.
What's your take on the lyrics?

"What's your take on the lyrics?"

I think of it as a Sam Arkoff movie set to music.

Interesting. As with anything from 1967 (as am I), this song refers to "easy yoga".

Picture if you will... a man sleeping well into the morning (perhaps the crack of noon)... his 'er chakra's are straight and he enters the velvety sleep paralysis mind/awake/body/asleep state and begins to see images of Elysian fields and hear a soft yet perfectly disembodied woman's voice.

Without losing his 'er marbles (almost though), he maintains composure and begins trance channeling a 6th density social memory complex known as "Phaedra" (not to be confused with Greek lore-as social memory complexes are known for their penchant for using 5th century mnemonic devices).

Anyhoo, "Phaedra" as they prefer to be called by those requiring names, dishes some tidbits of otherworldly advice to keep their victim suspended in occupation of higher thought while they quietly extract life-force in an econosmic even exchange.

Man awakes pleasurably in higher than usual creative state. Voila! 3 minute, one hit single.

I was thinking about that song recently. I haven't heard it in a gazillion years.

I did not know that, which is funny because I had kin who lived out by Elysian Fields in 1967, in fact they are who we got all our Nancy Sinatra records from

Coincidence I think not (no literally, I think not )

I'm definitely familiar with it, but I don't belive I've heard it since they played it on Radio 208 (Luxembourg). Was never my favorite though ... Was it creepy? I guess I should've listened to the words a little closer ...

Great song, it's cool to hear about Phaedra in a hit record.
