Jimi Hendrix: Purple Haze Meaning

Song Released: 1967

Purple Haze Lyrics

Purple haze all in my brain
Lately things just dont seem the same
Actin funny, but I dont know why
scuse me while I kiss the sky
Purple haze all around
Dont know if Im comin up or down
Am I happy or in misery?
What ever it is, that girl.

The lyric truly is “. while I kiss the sky” but lots of people think it’s “. while I kiss this guy” because Hendrix often used to sing the latter lyric on stage to confuse and provoke people. But it’s officially “. the sky”, he even has a biography named after the lyric.

Jimi came straight out and denied that Purple Haze was about drugs, despite the possible obvious references. Sorry kids.

Some previous posts linked the song to a dream he once had, which was getting close, one of you even mentioned love, which was right on.

My understanding:
The song was about the effects Jimi felt when he was falling in love with a girl. He felt absolutely entraced by her, to the point where he had dreams about her.

He had trouble describing just how significantly she affected him, until he saw a documentary on so called “alien abductees” (Stay with me now. ). Many of the people likened their experience onboard as an:
out of body (“‘Scuse me while I kiss the sky”)
timeless (“Tomorrow, or just the end of time”)
experience while surrounded by a Purple Haze.

The give away line for me was always “What ever it is, that girl, put a spell on me.”

But take this version with a mountainous pile of salt.

P.S. Didn’t word check, be nice.

Purple Haze is actually from a dream Jimi Hendrix had. He was walking under the ocean and there was a purple cloud/haze around him. But it’s also about being love, hence the lyrics ‘am I happy or in misery, whatever it is that girl put a spell on me’ and also it is definitely ‘scuse me while I kiss the sky’ not ‘while I kiss this guy’

Its possible Jimi had a dream related to Vietnam. I was told once by a Helicopter pilot that when a paratrooper was surrounded in the jungle they sent up a purple distress flare which would make a purple haze all around. Just a thought.

JIMMY HENDRIX[R.I.P] awesome ”purple haze” song came out to be known and experienced as one of the most popular ”acid trip” songs of the late 60’s and 70’s. about what some of Hendrix followers came to believe is out of a dream he had about being trapped under the ocean[atlantic] where he couldn’t tell if he’s going up or down in it’s ”purple haze” of color like ”plasma” that he felt was in and all around his brain. Awoke and metaphorically revealing to us the dream as an ”electric universe” experience that magnetically attracted and pulled the heavenly young bodies closer together near Earth. As like his attraction for this earthly Girl that reminded him of one of those heavenly spheres that put a spell on him. Anotherwords Jimmi Hendrix was starstruck and blown out of the water by this Girl’s heavenly beauty and presence. this was all before the deluge that came upon the earth in his dream out of their encountered collision that sadly thru them of their course, as once happened in the heavenly spheres to be experienced on earth as a love that fell in chaos and drifted away from eachother. wherenow he was in need to be saved in JESUS name, in order to rise out of the dream that he fell in deep water with and was turning into a nightmare end of time revelation for him who wanted out and be excused to kiss the new lighted sky again.

This is about flat earth 😉 wonder why all these amazing artists were dying sudden deaths at such early ages? Exposing the truth..

Think Kurt Cobain “I’m on a plane” (flat plane)

The Doors, Pink Floyd were desperately trying to get the truth out there..
Freddy Mercury try and understand Bohemian Rhaspody’s true meaning. No, I’m not insane, there is zero proof of a ball, countless proofs of the FE. the truth doesn’t need excuses (scientific THEORY)
