According to that ever-reliable source (ahem), Wikipedia, the hyphenated title to Iron Butterfly’s (1968) signature song, In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, is a derivation of In the Garden of Eden.
The album version of this song is over 17 minutes long. The truncated single version is just under 3 minutes.
While I love me some ‘classic’ heavy metal, and I can go for the 17-minute version, for your nonsensical hyphenated song title listening diversion, here is the short version of In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.
Until next time,
