Nirvana, In The Beginning off the album The Story Of Simon Simopath 1967
The story of Simon Simopath is a debut album by British psychedelic band Nirvana released by Island Records in 1967. The lyrics trace the story from life to death of a titular hero via series of short songs. The story deals with a boy names Simon Simopath who dreams of having wings. He is unpopular at school and after reaching adulthood (in 1999) he goes to work in an office in front of a computer. He suffers from a breakdown and is unable to find mental help in a mental institution, but gets aboard a rocket and meets a centaur who becomes his best friend. He also meets a tiny goddess named Magdelana who works at Pentecost Hotel. Simon and Magdelana fall in love and get married followed by a jazzy party.
