Everything's Orange?

Post by padre_sliprat » Thu Sep 16, 2021 11:21 pm

I recall a single mention of "Everything's Orange" as the title of a very early (The Spiders?) song.

Dennis, if there's any information on that song, I'd appreciate it much. (Maybe one of my fellow Sickthings could win a coloring book!) :)

Thanks

I only remember the melody and psychedelic feel of the chorus of "Everything is Orange." Inspired by someone saying you couldn't write a lyric that ended with the word orange because there is no rhyme for it. So we used the word at the end of the chorus and it didn't have a rhyme.
Another lost gem "Maybe Yes, Maybe No" from the same era, is a bit more memorable. I started singing it with Alice in recent years and was surprised how much we remembered.

We played both songs when we had to follow Aretha Franklin at the Hullabaloo in Hollywood in '67.

I guess we could have said something like stay sober or binge.
