60s Crash Course - Jefferson Airplane: White Rabbit

Em "White Rabbit" os Jefferson Airplane misturaram a Alice de Lewis Carroll, acordes de flamenco, rock estridente e cogumelos alucinogénicos:
One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all
Go ask Alice
When she's ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall
Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call
Call Alice
When she was just small

When men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low
Go ask Alice
I think she'll know

When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's "off with her head!"
Remember what the dormouse said:
"Feed your head
Feed your head
Feed your head"
Não admira que, muito anos depois, interrogada sobre as suas memórias de São Francisco em 1968, Grace Slick, a vocalista do grupo, tenha respondido: "Se alguém disser que se lembra do que se passou é porque não esteve lá."
