Songs »In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida

in a gadd da vida iron butterflyThere's some disagreement as to how In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida got its non sense title, but all histories tell of one person or another being either drunk or on LSD and either mishearing or missaying “in the garden of eden (or venus)”. Of course the how of this song is not as significant as its influence. This composition by Iron Butterfly is considered to be one of the first heavy metal singles which ignited the sounds of Led Zeppelin. The album version is seventeen minutes long, so if you've only heard it on the radio, you've probably only heard a small portion. This song is used in many movies and TV shows, but never as powerfully as this weeks movie pick, Manhunter. (Don't watch this link if you haven't seen the movie!! – But do rent it)
