Going to Eden ... Yea brother
 
Ok, not one of the better episodes....or songs. But kind of fun in a strange sort of way. I don't suppose anyone has the words and guitar chords for this little ditty?

I quite like the music in the jam session Spock has with the chick playing the bicycle wheel. I was happy when they released it ("Far Out Jam") as part of the complete recordings box set

The ONLY two good things about "The Way To Eden" are two carryovers from "The Doomsday Machine": The (fully functional) Auxiliary Control Room, and Elizabeth Rogers as Lt. Palmer. Otherwise, bllleeeccccchhhhhhhhhhh!

The box set is great, alright. I even like the embarrassing rock n roll songs, in private of course.

The girl playing the wheel is Deborah Downey. Along with Charles Napier, she sang her own part. The performance scenes were lip-sync'd to a playback tape, but that's really her singing on it. She went on to become a painter, and one of her commissions was a portrait of Gene Roddenberry.

"Girl #2" was played by Phyllis Douglas, a favorite ST hottie of mine. She was on the show twice and got to ride the shuttlecraft both times. She probably thought they used it in every episode.

THIS.

And these hippies, as I've said before, aren't the real deal, and would have been scorned by an actual hippy from the 1960's if they ever traveled forward in time to the 23rd-24th centuries and saw how good it was to live on Earth then.

I gotta agree. This one sits within the bottom group of 5.

Yes, my least favoured TOS episode.

79. I, Mudd
80. The Way To Eden.

F#min C#min Bmin
F#min C#min Bmin A

Interesting progression, but annoying as it resolves into a different key.

This was the "establishment's" vision of hippies in the 60s. Every TV show of the time seemed to feature a hippie episode at some point (even F-Troop!). All of them were probably written by men who were "over thirty" and had no idea what really went on in the culture.

I like the part when Adam sings in Auxiliary Control, while Sevrin is adjusting the circuitry to kill. It's pretty bittersweet, if you can dig it. This episode ranks somewhere in the middle, for me. It reaches me, if you see what I did there, and it gets points just for being the only musical episode.

Memory Alpha has the lyrics and an ogg file of it here.

I could live with this, although I despise "Plato's Stepchildren" as much as "The Way To Eden.'"

I grok this episode. It's one of my guilty pleasures. Yes, it's bad, but I enjoy the look at civilian life we see here, as well as fleshing Chekov's backstory a little.

I know Joanna McCoy was originally supposed to be in the group. I'm glad we got Lilianna. It would have been nice to see Joanna in a different episode or movie.

"Gonna clap my hands & jump for joy, got a clean bill of health from Dr. McCoy!"

Best. Line. EVER.

Re: Going to Eden ... Yea brother
 
Guess I had the wrong lyrics

Heading out to Eden
Yea brother
Heading out to Eden
No more trouble in my body or my mind
Gonna live like a king on whatever I find
Eat all the fruit and throw away the rind
Yea brother, yea.
