Watching VH1 last night I picked up a new morsel of edification. Turns out that In-a-gadda-da-vida (an unbelievably annoying track, but that’s beside the point) is actually called In The Garden of Eden but that the singer was too chemically altered to be able to pronounce the words, so the band decided to just write the title down like he sang it.
Perhaps all the cool people already knew this, but it’s news to me… Guess I always just assumed it was a reference to some kind of Indian mysticism since all the hippies of that era seemed to be into that kind of stuff.
