WHO THE HELL REALLY CARES | Reviewer: tanya | 3/26/10
Who the hell even cares it's a beautiful song.......the important thing is how you feel when you hear it, everything else is irrelevant to people who have far more serious issues on their mind, if it allows them to escape for a tiny period of time, then, do you concur that the Beatles have done their job?
To the people concerned about the mental wellbeing of the population in their interpretation of the song.......please concentrate on something far more important...like the enviroment.
PS Alice In Wonderland is fantastic! Who the hell cares even if he was tugging a puff, what would you have come up with? Would you have been able to entertain generations of children, slipping in the odd life lesson now and then, dudes you are so depressed you cannot see the bigger picture, children do not think OH MUH GOSH! HE'S ON DRUGS! I MUST GET ME SUMMOH THAT!.....it is written for children NOT ADULTS TRYING TO JUSTIFY THEIR HABITS OR ADULTS TRYING TO JUSTIFY THEIR MORAL HIGHGROUND.
....and that is all i have to say about that. (oh wow look at me i plagiarized, "Forest Gump" in case the phrase escaped you).
I hope you all have a marvellous evening, and no, i am not on any drugs prescription or otherwise.
LUCI in the SKY with DIAMONDS | Reviewer: E | 3/21/10
i interpret this song entirely different than everyone else. I think the subliminal message here is what most powerful musicians convey in their songs: freemasonry. I drew the connection of "lucy in the sky" to lucifer (who anti-christ followers believe to be the fallen angel), the diamond refers to the masonic square and compasses which takes the form of a pyramid symbol (that's on our dollar bills). another hint is "kaleidoscope eyes" which is the eye inside the pyramid. it all connects and the chances of all these connections being "coincidences?" highly doubt it...
the last few days i've researched hidden messages in a lot of famous artists (especially popular hip hop/rap artists today like rihanna, jay z and beyonce) and even lady gaga. if you watch their music videos, pay attention to the symbol of a triangle (most blatantly in jay-z's record label, the symbol for rockafella records) to the covering of one eye, as lady gaga and rihanna always does, to holding your hands in the shape of a 6, for devils code as seen by lil' wayne, t-pain and other artists.
freemasonry: worship lucifer in exchange for money/power. it's what makes our world go 'round, sadly...

beatles song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/17/10
dude are you guys retarded first of all the guy who wrote alice in wonderland was an opium addict and you could easily write a song on lsd yes he might be inspired by a photo but the title has lsd in it and makes alot of sense to me if its about lsd and in every one of the beatles music vidfeos for this song there are images based upon a trip whach this if you dont believe me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7F2X3rSSCU
Lucy | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/14/10
Alright guys, just to clear up your confusion about the meaning of the song, i just watched an interview about this song, John Lennon says, "this is the truth, my son came home with a drawing and sat and showed this drawing of a strange woman flying around and i said 'what is it' and he said 'it's lucy in the sky with diamonds' and i thought that's beautiful i immediately wrote a song about it...." he goes on to say that so many people thought it was about LSD and he didn't even realize and then he looked at it and saw that those were abreviations in the title and that is not what he intended it for see it for yourself, believe what you want but that is what the WRITER OF THE SONG HIMSELF SAYS....
LSD | Reviewer: cybertripping | 2/15/10
Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.
To my mind this song is very obviously about LSD.
An LSD addled minds stream of consciousness could very easily follow the path laid out in this song.
It might be that the Lewis Carol image of "...yourself in a boat on a river" is what get the thought train running but that does not necessarily mean that the song is ABOUT Alice in Wonderland.
In fact it is an often quoted fact that Lewis Carol was into drugs which makes the chance that someone who is writing a song about LSD adding a reference to Alice in Wonderland almost obligatory.
btw, if you had just written a song and your 8 year old son asked what Lucy in the Sky of Diamonds meant what would you tell him.......?
"Actually my boy, I noticed that the name you gave your picture works well with a reference to a hallucinogenic drug so I used your innocent drawing to write a song about drugs and threw in a Lewis Carol reference for good measure"? Probably not.... you'd say "it's about your wonderful drawing my boy." Well, at least I hope you would.
As a famous writer once said .... I just write the stuff, afterward I go back and look for the double meanings and possible extras and if the story needs a little tweak to get it there, why not?
Double-meanings are possible, you know... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/15/10
Uh-huh. It's not about LSD. And The Stranglers' Golden Brown was not about heroin, right? Yes, a drawing of a diamond-eyed Lucy was part of the inspiration, but if you think the psychedelic-loving Beatles never realised that the lyrics appear to describe a trip, and the title contains the letters LSD, you're extremely naive and gullible. They took an innocently-sourced song and loaded it with drug imagery, so "heads" would get the drug references, while their squeaky-clean fans would be satisfied with the drawing explanation. Very clever, and as many people failed to understand this, it obviously worked.
to all that believe this song was inspired by marijuana | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/12/10
Marijuana does not make you trip.
This is not something to expect to invision while smoking marijuana.
the main chemical in Marijuana is THC which is similar to LSD in a lesser form.
In theory, LSD could cause you to trip
but you would have to smoke so much of it that writing a song would be nearly impossible.
LSD | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/12/10
Did no one put together the title?
Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds?
^^ hence the capitol letters?
it spells out LSD.
that was no accident.
The beatles are known for their great symbolism.
Most of the people writing reviews are right in their own sense.
Yes, he was inspired by a portrait.
But he was also inspired by the hallucinations from the drug LSD
This would explain the irrationality, as everything seen in a trip is very irrational.
Yes, he was inspired by Alice In Wonderland,
which is full of symbolism all its own.
But is also inspired by LSD.
It's a beautiful song, and I think you should take it how you want it to be.
Bald Adonis = Douche | Reviewer: sgsince89 | 2/11/10
@ Bald Adonis.
Anybody who has experience LSD, KNOWS this song is describing an LSD trip.
"A girl with kaleidoscope eyes"
"plasticine porters with looking glass ties"
The Beatles were VERY well known for their drug experimentation... Named after a drawing... How fucking naive are you :\

This is one of the greates beatles songs i ever heard, but the thing that inspired the beatles to write lucy in the sky with diamonds is LSD...not about Julian Lennon's drawing of Lucy O'Donnell flying in the sky with diamond eyes...its about LSD...just look at the title Lucy.....Sky....Diamonds L,is for lucy, S, is for sky, D is for diamonds put that all together and what does that spell LSD...case close i win u loose, in ur face.
Great Song! | Reviewer: Mario | 2/4/10
Regardless of what inspired this song, it's awesome. The Beatles forever!! We'll never really know the meaning, but I think it was based of the drug LSD. Many people just say it's about a drawing because they seen it on the Rockband: Beatles game, but I doubt it...as I said though, regardless of how it became, it's a good song!
lucy o'donnell vodden in the sky with diamonds | Reviewer: bald adonis | 1/30/10
Are you nuts? I'm talking to the people claiming that this song is about lsd. It's about Julian Lennon's drawing of Lucy O'Donnell flying in the sky with diamond eyes and saying "This is 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds'."If you aren't convinced yet, then what about Juilan Lennon's song "Lucy" released last year? It was about Lucy O'Donnell Vodden's death and a sequel to Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.
hey now!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/29/10
well read the verse
Newspaper taxis appear on the shore,
Waiting to take you away.
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds,
And you're gone.
this song as well as many other were about governemnt. they were from a socialist country noy yo say other things didnt inspire the band. lsd def did.
