Tag Archives: Incense & Peppermints


22 Feb

I’m a sucker for ’60s psychedelia.  I’m pretty sure that if I had grown up during that era, the only thing in Margauxville today would be a plot of grass with a small marker.

“Birds In My Tree” by Strawberry Alarm Clock is one of my favorite songs, ever.  Most people think only of “Incense and Peppermints” if and when they think of Strawberry Alarm Clock, but this song is so much more.

Aside from the melody and guitar and everything else I love about it sonically, it also has pretty expansive lyrics.  Maybe I’m just feeling extra hippy-dippy these days, but having many birds in my tree is exactly the message I need right now.

Open your eyes to it, here.
