Purple Haze è un classico hendrixiano, scritto nel 1966 e pubblicato l’anno dopo con l’album Are You Experienced, dei Jimi Handrix Experience. E’ considerato l’archetipo della “canzone psichedelica da effetto di droghe”, una variante musicale che negli anni ’60 prese molto campo, oltre che la traccia di chitarra per eccellenza (il magazine Q l’ha classificata al primo posto tra le migliori di tutti i tempi, Rolling Stone al 17esima tra le migliori canzoni).
Il termine “foschia porpora” (la traduzione del titolo) fa riferimento al colore delle pasticche di LSD, o più precisamente a quelle di Delysid, il nome col quale veniva indicato negli anni ’40 come farmaco, prima di essere proibito.

[Jimi Hendrix]

Testo Lyrics

Purple haze all in my brain
Lately things just don’t seem the same
Actin’ funny, but I don’t know why
‘Scuse me while I kiss the sky

Purple haze all around
Don’t know if I’m comin’ up or down
Am I happy or in misery?
Whatever it is, that girl put a spell on me

Help me help me
Oh no no… no

Yeah
Purple haze all in my eyes
Don’t know if it’s day or night
You’ve got me blowin, blowin my mind
Is it tomorrow or just the end of time?

No, help me aw yeah! oh no no oh help me…
