Strawberry Alarm Clock is a psychedelic rock band from Los Angeles, known for their 1967 hit "Incense and Peppermints". They are often thought of as a "one-hit wonder", although they charted two Top 40 songs, and five Top 100 songs.The group originally consisted of Ed King (lead guitar), Mark Weitz (keyboards), Lee Freeman (rhythm guitar), Gary Lovetro (bass), and Randy Seol (drums). On their first and most famous single, "Incense and Peppermints", none of the band wanted to sing songwriter John Carter's lyrics, so lead vocals were sung by Greg Munford, a 16-year-old friend of the band, although the regular vocalists sang backup. The song reached #1 on the Billboard pop singles chart in late 1967. Mark Weitz and Ed King were denied songwriting credit by the band's producer because they did not write the melody line or the lyrics, though the song was built on an instrumental by Weitz with a bridge by King originally intended as a B-side to "Birdman of Alkatrash," which ultimately became the B-side to "Incense and Peppermints." The single stayed at #1 for two weeks with 16 weeks in total on the chart.[1] A gold disc was awarded for one million sales by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on 19 December 1967.

Lyrics:
Rainy day mushroom pillow
Colors green, brown, and yellow,
Wonder if they'll turn black ever
Comtemplating one together

Poisoned dreams,
Distorted dreams,
Mushroom dreams.

There's no place that can be better
When you're up in clouds forever,
Pacify your mind with islands
Colored snow and green-field skies and,

Poisoned dreams,
Distorted dreams,
Mushroom dreams.

Don't have to tell you it feels better than,
Floating free, walk upon the sand
Got to give you things much better
My mushroom's green and brown forever.

Poisoned dreams,
Distorted dreams,
Mushroom dreams.

Rainy day mushroom pillow
Rainy day mushroom pillow
Rainy day mushroom pillow
