3AM Eternal

3AM Eternal: The Flaming Lips “Five Stop Mother Superior Rain” (1990)

Is this a religious song? I dunno, but it sure feels holy to me. It’s from In A Priest Driven Ambulancewhich certainly had a handful of very spiritual psychedelic rock numbers. It also feels like a cousin to Mercury Rev‘s “Chasing A Bee.” It’s also one of the Flaming Lips’ finest numbers, with leader Wayne Coyne channeling…something.
