Ok gang, so out of boredom I'm putting together a bit of a mixed tape/dj mix of psychedelia-style music and to keep it flowing am thinking of intercutting some/all the songs with movie quotes from some psychedelia films.  Musically think of the soundtracks from Barbarella or Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, that type of vibe, and am thinking of things that are weird and wonderful to throw in there to split the songs up to let it flow.

I have a ton of music already, but suggestions on that front are also more than welcome!

You can use visuals from the weird dance club in Coogan's Bluff [the Pigeon Toed Orange Peel] and any amount of quotes from Roger Corman's The TripSmile

You're only looking for quotes?

Lots and lots of stuff from FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS ("by this time, our minds were totally twisted...")

Ringo saying "it's all in the mind" from YELLOW SUBMARINE. (You should be able to find lots of quotes from that one too).

Willy Wonka's "tunnel" poem.

Personally I'd include "Your sacrifice has completed my sanctuary of 1,000 testicles" from THE HOLY MOUNTAIN.

Surely something from ALTERED STATES ("You don't have to tell me how weird you are. I know how weird you are") belongs.

ALICE IN WONDERLAND (Disney's animated version) is always good for insert quotes.

Hope that's the kind of stuff you're looking for.

Oh and if you're looking for more music check out the FANTASTIC PLANET soundtrack---beautiful, sensual psychedelic rock.

A Clockwork Orange contains some stunning visuals.
Though not quite psychedelic in effect, McDowell's narration & Wendy Carlos' soundtrack (together or separate) are what really drives the dream scape of this movie.

I have a strong love for psychadelic and surreal films...there's been so many great mind-warping films over the years with surreal imagery. I also have a strong tendency to love these sequences in films where characters wander dreamingly from one place to another oftentimes via some sort of transportation (this is quite common in anime films. 2 examples that really stand out in my memory right now occurred in PATLABOR 1: THE MOVIE and SPIRITED AWAY). Anyways back to psychadelic and surreal films, get your mind around some of these and their imagery:

ALPHAVILLE
REPULSION
NAKED LUNCH
12 MONKEYS (love a lot of the music in this one especially "It's a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong)
PI
THE MATRIX
THE 13TH FLOOR
THE TRIAL
KAFKA
THE WIZARD OF OZ
METROPOLIS (2001) (another great soundtrack, gotta love Ray Charles' music in this)
THE DARK CRYSTAL
CITY OF LOST CHILDREN
CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI
METROPOLIS (1927)
VAMPYR
NOSFERATU
1984 (1984)
V FOR VENDETTA
WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY
BLADE RUNNER
2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY
A CLOCKWORK ORANGE

Rumble Fish has a pretty dreamy feel to it.

from VIDEODROME (1983)

. After a while,I started hallucinating,and developed a tumor. I believe the visions caused the tumor,and not the other way around.

A few more films of possible interest:

CHARLY
SLAUGHTERHOUSE FIVE
STRANGE DAYS
DARK CITY
THE TRIP
THE HUDSUCKER PROXY
JACOB'S LADDER
IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS
THE TWILIGHT ZONE: THE MOVIE
TRAINSPOTTING
BRAZIL
BEING JOHN MALKOVICH
GODZILLA VS. HEDORAH
HAUSU
TOTAL RECALL (1990)
TOMMY

Certainly agree as well with others who suggested FANTASTIC PLANET, one of the trippiest of trippy movies.

One vote for Vampiros Lesbos.  Very groovy psychedelic soundtrack and cool German dialogue to boot!

Beyond the Black Rainbow has some awesome music, too.

Certainly Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas has some of the most accurate depictions of what being on psychedelics is actually like. It also has a lot of stuff that is nothing like what being on psychedelics is like.

I second Beyond the Black Rainbow, which is not necessarily true-to-state, but certainly the aim of most psychedelic movies.

Avoid The Wall, because avoid cliches like the plague. (I like the movie.)

The Monkee's Head is interesting, because that is a movie specifically made by Bob Rafelson and Jack Nicholson (yes, that one) high off their minds on LSD specifically trying to destroy the idea of the Monkees. It has Frank Zappa in it, for no real reason.

My recommendation is that you take whatever weird and wonderful stuff you can find and start splicing them together in a true William S. Burroughs cut-up style. That always works, because when you talk psychedelic, it doesn't really matter. It isn't what you're playing, it's the mind that is splicing them together that matters, i.e. your viewer.

All these varying replies make me wonder how the OP is defining "psychedelic."  I associate that word with that whole genre of mid-Sixties to late-Seventies movies packed with solarized visual FX and floaty-woaty music characterized by hypnotic drum signatures and either heavy keyboards or twangy guitars, sometimes both.

The ultimate soundtrack from that era, for me, is the incidental music from Psychomania and/or the theme music from The Green Slime.  Parts of the soundtrack from See No Evil also fits the bill nicely.
