Song of the day: Donovan- Mellow Yellow
In 1966, Donovan recorded Mellow Yellow. A song with many interpretations, from getting high by cooking banana skins (no.) to drugs (no) and abortion (also no). What was it about? Being cool, chill, and electric bananas (apparantly those were vibrators for ladies). The inspiration for the song came from the back of a newspaper, which Donovan explored together with John Lennon. In the UK it was number 8, in the US number 2, in Canada even number 1! Enjoy
