A Song For the 8th of the Month: "Eight Miles High” by The Byrds

Here's my salute to songs with numbers in them. Every day this month, I'll select a song with the number of the month in the title.

To celebrate the 8th day of the month, we go back to the psychedelic ‘60s for a track from the Folk-Pop outfit The Byrds. Their barely-concealed reference to the joy of pharmaceuticals seems quaint in our current era where pot is on a slow path to legalization. This is a great song in any era, though.

What songs do you like with "Eight" in the title? Leave ideas in the comments!
