And this is from a much later epoch, but I get exactly the same feeling from the superb soundtrack of Manhunter.

I think you could mine some excellent quotes from all the movies I just listed.

Hey gang, thanks for the contributions.  Plenty to trawl through!

Just to give more context as I've thought more about it: I'm basically compiling a list of psychedelic music to put together as a mix tape of sorts: mainly hippy type music, but am putting in a whole host of different songs of similar feeling as well.  In order to bridge the gap between some of the songs I was basically looking for quotes from movies of a psychedelic nature. Eg normally a DJ would mix in the next song and everything seems like one long seamless song, with the music I'm choosing, this isn't always possible, but to give a cleaner transition from one to the next I figure I can throw in movie quotes/soundtracks from the era to hide the transitions from song to song.

Some classic dialogue examples would be people talking about universes/general philosophical mumbo jumbo, or perhaps quotes that sound from the 60s/70s [ie the language is very 'groovy' or they're talking about something from that era.]  Whilst they don't have to specifically be from the era [same goes for the music], quotes from 60s/70s films are preferred as they seem a bit more authentic.

Whilst I'm less likely to use too many movie soundtracks [as opposed to songs that appeared in a movie] some of you have reminded me of a couple I own that I completely forgot about that I may have to listen to again and see whether they suit.




That being said, even though I don't need any visuals, with all the suggestions it does make me want to edit a psychedelic music video as a separate project... Damn you all...

Barbarella I always found to be quite psych/trippy. Does that count?

Sure does crackers!  I actually am debating about using the "Angel Is Love" song or the Barbarella theme in the mix, but there's a few dialogue options I may throw in too, depending on what I can find that suits.

Yeah, there are tonnes of great samples in that flick.

Not quite in the same era, but perhaps some of Pink Floyd's The Wall might be appropriate.

Another song/album closer to the true psychedelic era would be Number 9 by The Beatles, as well as any of their other acid-inspired songs (Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds).

Droning Indian music like Ravi Shankar might also be cool.  Tripping people were always listening to that stuff in those days, or is that just how they were depicted in film?

You might like to watch the Social Seminar videos on archive.org and YouTube.  There are a few of them, with some very interesting profiles of drug takers in the 70's, and how they have a hard time with general society.  There would be some choice quotes in there.

Ozzymandias speaks: I realize this may be a little late, but I just saw an episode of the TV series Mod Squad that would be perfect for your project. The episode is called "Survival House." Near the end of the episode, the guest star Sammy Davis Jr, attacks a pusher who sold drugs to his illegitimate daughter. The pushers thugs subdue him and try to give him a lethal does of heroin. Pete and Linc arrive and fight the pusher and his thugs. While this is going on, Sammy Davis Jr character watches the fight while under the influence. It is filmed in slow motion with red, yellow and blue lag-lines following the motion of the characters that are fighting. I believe the music switches to a draggy, fuzztone bass.

Ozzymandias has spoken!!!

I do recommend Roger Corman's "The Trip" (1967) very much. Has a good amount of psychedelic LSD hallucinations and groovy rock music throughout. It was a very controversial title over here in the UK because the BBFC refused to classify and put a ban of it back during it's original release. If I remember correctly, it wasn't released until it's 2002 DVD release. Interesting film overall, I plan on checking out "Psyche-Out" (1968) (also released by American International) as well. These hippie cult flicks are quite interesting.
