Pink Floyd – “Lucifer Sam”

UK, 1967

A piece of the album cover for Pink Floyd's Piper at the Gates of Dawn, which has the band going through a kaleidoscope effect. They look very, very 60s.

Is Pink Floyd singing about something sinister going on with this cat? Or is it just…a regular cat? After all, everybody I know who owns a cat says “That cat’s something I can’t explain” (or a reasonable equivalent) quite often.
