Nirvana - Wings of Love (1967)

Formed in 1965, this band merged psychedelic rock with baroque rock that resulted in truly unique sounds. Although those unique sounds were praised by critics and the music industry, the group never managed to achieve commercial success.

They had planned a tongue-in-cheek tribute album in the early ‘90s, Nirvana Covers Nirvana, performing songs by Kurt Cobain’s Nirvana. But when Cobain died, the album was aborted and only one song, “Lithium,” had been recorded. It was later released on Orange and Blue (1996).

This song is the opening track to their 1967 album The Story of Simon Simopath. It was a concept album about a boy in the future who wished to fly that led to an adventure involving rocket ships, centaurs, and goddesses. If you enjoy this track, be sure to check out the rest of the album.

Lyrics:

Little swallow in the sky
Permit me to entice you with a bargain
I will give you all my sweets
A comic book, a clock that sings
If you will let me have your lovely wings

Silver airplane above the clouds
I will shoot you down
With gun and bow and arrow
So come down to our front lawn
Right away with all your things
And let me take away your mighty wings

He wants to be in love
He wants to be a butterfly
And he is flying high
Like the birds into the sky
He wants to be in love; he wants to fly
He wants to be in love; he wants to fly

Lovely angel in my dream
I saw you in the sky today
You're rejoicing amidst the harps
And all the bells and all the rings
If I am good tomorrow
Will you let me have your wings

He wants to be in love
He wants to be a butterfly
And he is flying high
Like the birds into the sky
He wants to be in love; he wants to fly
He wants to be in love; he wants to fly

He wants to be in love; he wants to fly…
