over under sideways down (2:22)

Cover of Birdland

From Birdland and 52 other releases

Speaking with Songfacts about this song in a 2010 interview, Yardbirds drummer Jim McCarty explained: “‘Over Under Sideways Down’ was about the situation of having a good time - a bit of decadence, really - in the ’60s. Cars and girls are easy to come by in this day and age, and laughing, drinking, smoking, whatever, till I’ve spent my wages, having fun.”

Featured in HBO’s acclaimed “John From Cincinnati” Soundtrack
