Lyrics: Thrown like a star in my vast sleep I open my eyes to take a peep To find that I was by the sea Gazing with tranquillity. 'Twas then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man Came singing songs of love, Then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man Came singing songs of love. Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang. Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang. Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang. Histories of ages past Unenlightened shadows cast Down through all eternity The crying of humanity. 'Tis then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man Comes singing songs of love, Then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man Comes singing songs of love. Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang. Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy. Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang. Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang. Here comes the roly poly man and he's singing songs of love, Roly poly, roly poly, roly poly, poly he sang. Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang, Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang

This picturesque video interpretation of Donovan's song celebrates the real Hurdy Gurdy Man, the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. The Maharishi, spiritual advisor to the Beatles and many others, introduced the Transcendental Meditation movement to the West in 1959. He died at age 91 in his Dutch home in Vlodrop on February 5, 2008.

Hurdy Gurdy Man Donovan. Donovan: vocals,acoustic guitar and tambura. Allan Holdsworth and Jimmy Page : Electric Guitars. John Paul Jones : Bass. John Bonham and Clem Clatini : Drums Recorded April 1968 From the Epic lp The Hurdy Gurdy Man (BN26340 ) Originally Released 1968 Sony Music Entertainment Inc Written in India, about the loss of the World's Wisdom and The Call to Awaking. DONOVAN IS QUOTED FROM HIS ALBUM SLEEVE CREDITS : My chords like a mantra, and in my head I heard power guitar riffs and wild drums, like Keith Moon of The Who. Ecstatic trance vibes. When I played this song to my producer, Mickie Most, I said "This is for Jimi Hendrix" (who I had met first week he arrived in London ) . "No" said Mickie,"It's your single" I said, "Let's get Jimi to play guitar" Jimi was gigging and couldn't, so Jimmy Page came in with John Bonham and John Paul Jones arranged the track. Three future members of Led Zeppelin. This acoustic chant with classic-rock power opened the Celtic-rock to come. And the lyric announced that meditation had arrived in pop culture.

This is a video I threw together to finally get the idea I can use Hurdy Gurdy man in a video out of my head. It's a trailer? A montage? Whatever, the song is cool.

News story about an old-time entertainer and his star side-kick. Pete the street performer carries on a tradition that goes back several hundred years. Story from the early 80s. Historically some Organ Grinders had a bad rep but Pete seems like an up-and-up guy.

An intriguing folk instrument somebody was playing in the bridgeway on the first evening of Anthrocon 2008. Sounds like a cross between bagpipes and an analogue synthesizer, which I found fascinating, especially since it isn't at all similar to either! It's more like, as someone later described to me, "a violin with an automatic transmission".

I honestly don't know what the hell this is, who the hell this is, or what he's cranking. I recorded it sometime in the early '90s off the public access channel. For more good (and bad) stuff, check out my blog: http://classicalgasemissions.blogspot.com edit: the instrument is called a Hurdy-Gurdy For those who want a ringtone, you can download it here: http://www.mts.net/~bpony/oldmanringtone.mp3
