Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Why They're Nonsensical:
Exactly what does this mean? [Yes, I know of the story (urban legend?) behind this song - it was originally called 'In The Garden Of Eden', until the lead singer came into one of the rehearsals stoned on acid and slurred the words, and the rest is history...]

Made Up Words in Songs:

The Made Up Words:
There is no meaning to this phrase. I have asked everyone that i know and it seems to be a title that was made up by the band. I've tried to find a meaning for about 25 years now and I was sure someone else would have posted it. Since no one has I thought I would finally do it. [ed. I have heard it was the singer's inebriated jumble of "In the Garden of Eden."]

Super Long Pop Songs:

"In-a-Gadda-Da-Vida" Length: 17:10
Possibly one of the longest songs ever recorded... and it gets credit for it alot, too. There probably isn't a person on Earth that can deny the fact this song had something to do with Psychedelic Drugs. Fact: It was originally supposed to be "In the Garden of Eden".
Submitted by: TullyGirl
"In A Gadda Da vida" Length: 17:00
Probably the longest drug song ever created. Took up one whole side of an LP
Submitted by: Ryan
"In-a-Gadda-Da-Vida" Length: 17:05
Of course they edited it to 3 minutes for radio, but there are some album-rock stations that play the full 17-minute version, which includes a Ron Bushy drum solo and a part where Erik Braunn makes his guitar sound like an elephant, and it's rumored that DJ's that play the 17-minute version do so to take a restroom break!
