About Happenings Ten Years Time Ago

"Happenings Ten Years Time Ago" is a 1966 song by the English rock band the Yardbirds. It encompasses the musical genres psychedelic rock and psychedelic pop, and has been described as a prototype of heavy metal music. With special effects and dual lead guitars by Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, it was considered groundbreaking for the time. However, it only made a modest showing in the record charts and ended the group's six Top 20 singles run in the UK and US.

Meeting people on my way
Seemingly I've known one day
Familiarity of things
That my dreaming always brings

Happenings ten years time ago
Situations we really know
But the knowing is in the mind
Sinking deep into the well of time
Sinking deep into the well of time

Walking in the room I see
Things that mean a lot to me
Why they do I'll never know
Memories don't strike me so
Memories don't strike me so

It seems to me I've been here before
The sounds I heard, and the sights I saw
Was it real, was it in my dreams
I need to know what it all means
Happenings ten years time ago
Situations we really know

But the knowing is in the mind
Sinking deep into the well of time
Sinking deep into the well of time
