Orange Skies


Orange Skies

"Orange Skies" is a song written by Bryan MacLean and originally recorded in 1966 by the band Love for their second album Da Capo (1967). It was first released in December 1966 as the B-side to the band's single "She Comes in Colors". The original recording features band leader Arthur Lee on lead vocals instead of MacLean.

According to Bryan MacLean, "Orange Skies" was the first song he ever wrote. At the time 17 years old and working as a roadie for The Byrds, he based the song on a section from The Byrds' version of "The Bells of Rhymney", attributing that arrangement to Roger McGuinn.[1]

Two demo versions by MacLean (on acoustic guitar and vocals) were released in 1997 on the album Ifyoubelievein. A piano version by his half-sister Maria McKee was released on her album Live - Acoustic Tour 2006. Other artists that have covered this song include The Galaxies, Os Baobás (both from Brazil), and Flower Power (Czechoslovakia).
