The Byrds - Eight Miles High

Each time I hear The Byrds' classic single "Eight Miles High", two things strike me: How good it is, and why on earth I don't play it more or less constantly. The single was released in early 1966, which was a groundbreaking time in music. Imagine the records produced by acts like The Byrds, The Beatles and The Beach Boys, and a whole score of other exciting bands that saw the light of day around the mid-1960's. It's hard to imagine just how crazy this era was in terms of pushing the music forward, a little bit like Buzz Lightyear, "to infinity and beyond".
