Mellow Yellow is the fourth album from British singer-songwriter Donovan. It was released in the US in March 1967 (Epic Records LN 24239 (monaural), BN 26239 (rechanneled stereo), but not released in the UK because of a continuing contractual dispute that also prevented Sunshine Superman from a UK release. In June 1967, a cross-section of both albums was released as Sunshine Superman (Pye Records NPL 18181) in the UK. "Mellow Yellow" was the name of Donovan's hit single released the previous November.

Produced by Mickie Most. Mellow Yellow Lyrics. I'm just mad about Saffron Saffron's mad about me I'm just mad about Saffron She's just mad about me. They call me mellow yellow (Quite rightly) They call me mellow yellow (Quite rightly) They call me mellow yellow. I'm just mad about Fourteen Fourteen's mad about me I'm just mad about Fourteen She's just mad about me. Quite a few things. Being mellow, laid-back, chilled out. ‘They call me Mellow Yellow, I’m the guy who can calm you down. Lennon and I used to look in the back of newspapers and pull out funny things and they’d end up in songs. So it’s about being cool, laid-back, and also the electrical bananas that were appearing on the scene – which were ladies vibrators. Mellow Yellow" Track Info.

Album: Mellow Yellow (1966). Charted: 8 2. Get the Sheet Music License This Song. Donovan set out to capture the mellow vibe of the '60s with this song, adding what he called "cool, groovy phrases. These phrases were interpreted in ways he never imagined, as people came up with lots of ideas as to what the song meant. Most of these interpretations concerned drugs, but there were even rumors that the song was about abortion. There is certainly a drug influence on this song, but it's about much more than that.
