They call what mellow yellow? Is this some kind of a drug reference? Say it ain’t so. There’s nothing like a silly tune that gets over scrutinized. This song is fantastic all on its own and it doesn’t have much meaning, nor does it need to. There’s no point in debating if the title is a James Joyce reference or the name of some especially fine strain of weed, or just nonsense. The whole ‘electrical banana’ debate is ridiculous too. If bananas could in any way, shape, or form cause intoxication, we would all know about it, because humans have already figured out how to intoxicate themselves with anything they could get their hands on, and bananas are not one of those things. So stop trying to smoke dried banana peels and go purchase yourself a nice vibrator, because that’s the real message.
