30 Day Song Challenge- Day 20: A Song With A Number In The Title: “Eight Miles High”- The Byrds. I didn’t think very hard on this question but is there a better song ever with a number in the title than “Eight Miles High” by The Byrds? Some cite the song which was released in the spring of 1966 as being the first psychedelic rock song. The single reached #14 on the charts probably due to a broadcast ban on it due to perceived drug connotations in the lyrics. It has always sounded like a #1 hit to my ears- my favorite Byrds song and one of the greatest songs of the 60’s or well ever!
