* Music/TheWho:
** ''Music/{{Tommy}}'', pretty much the entire musical. Special mention for the song "The Acid Queen". The movie also does this, as does the stage adaptation sometimes, depending on who's directing.
** "Underture", directly after "Acid Queen", is an instrumental portrayal of the protagonist's acid trip. Since he is blind and deaf and "sees" things as music inside his head, this is actually a justified straight example of this trope.



[[folder:Music Videos]]
* Music/{{Autechre}}'s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfwD05XA2YQ Gantz Graf]] video. Alex Rutterford, [[WordOfGod the director]], says it was actually inspired by a drug trip.
* The whole music video for Blockhead 's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QsgFBHfRNq8 The Music Scene]] is a surreal animation.
* Gouryella's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Wp7xMwfS3M Walhalla]] video has a freak-out sequence after the {{Black Viking|s}} bumps his head into the camera. [[DemBones Dancing skeletons]] and spinning flowers against a psychedelic hypno-wheel background, etc.
* Future Perfect's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RAhJVGj_Fv8 "Paradise"]]. The background animation looks like something out of Winamp's Visualization Studio.
* Little Boots' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=McdqerXrwXE "Remedy"]] starts as a PerformanceVideo, then gets all kaleidoscopey.
* The video for Music/DavidGuetta & Music/{{Sia}}'s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVzljDmoPVs "She Wolf(Falling to Pieces)"]] does this during the breakdowns.
* Kamil Jasmin's "Na Tu Svatbu" sounds catchy, but [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P6PpXA187Y8 Amanita Design's pitch for its music video]] makes it fit this trope well.
* This CGI animated video for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igXdVIkPYxY "Pink Cadillac"]] by Jerry Lee Lewis and Music/BruceSpringsteen.

* The Christmas classic ''Film/SantaClausIsCominToTown'', which explains Santa's origins, features a spectacular acid sequence when the LoveInterest, having just met an extraordinarily generous young man in a red suit, sings about her world turning upside-down. It starts with her contemplating her reflection in a fountain and devolves into psychedelic pop-art weirdness.

* The hallucinogenic scene in ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'' seems mostly fueled by fear (as she's running through the scary, dark woods). But it's certainly trippy. Being the first animated full length movie, it sets up a great precedent for Disney movies to contain a whole realm of further trippy scenes, even if all we're seeing is the main character's perspective when something gets overwhelming -- positive or negative. Somewhere in the movie's early stages, Snow White was actually supposed to have a dream sequence of her future with Prince Charming. Judging by the remaining concept art, they were going to be floating in midair against a starry technicolor rainbow sky. It got scrapped, but was eventually used to end ''Disney/SleepingBeauty''.

* ''Disney/{{Dumbo}}'' has the most shocking and probably most infamous example, with ''Pink Elephants on Parade''. Dumbo and Timothy Mouse drink water spiked with discarded champagne and hallucinate all these freaky-looking elephants. Ironically, "seeing PinkElephants" is the slang term for what happens when an alcoholic ''abstains'' from drinking for a long time.

** It features a song called "Cutting Edge" (a.k.a. "[[RefrainFromAssuming More, More, More]]"), which involves, among other things, a singing table lamp somersaulting through outer space. Of course, this is a movie where ''every'' character is an inanimate object. (We're not sure whether that makes it better or worse.)
** Given that every other musical number happens within the confines of the world around them DESPITE being a shop backroom full of hacked together "mutant" appliances and the cars in a junkyard being sent to the crusher, Cutting Edge definitely counts as the Acid Sequence.
** Toaster's clown dream also counts, as a terrifying version of the Acid Sequence.
* ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' features "Be Our Guest" ...compared to everything else on this list, it is {{downplayed|Trope}} but one can't deny the sheer craziness of what was quite possibly the most spectacular dinner show ever animated. [[WordOfGod Commentary tracks provided on the DVD]] even ''acknowledge'' that it throws logic out of the window, but the end result was WorthIt.

* ''Disney/TheLionKingOneAndAHalf'' has Timon's song, "That's All I Need" lampshading it. The sequence of the 'props' sliding out back to the Savannah and the sarcastic applause of the hyenas makes it very clear that, far from a bunch of animals suddenly displaying amazing choreography skills, this is genuine daydreaming/acid consumption territory, but since Timon is awake, it is not actually a dream.
* ''Disney/{{Pocahontas}}'': "Colors of the Wind". It's difficult to say whether the sequence is actually happening (if so, it happened over the course of several days, considering the changes in daylight), or if it's simply an interpretation of the spirit of nature surrounding them.
* ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'': "A Guy Like You". The commentary track references this trope, going so far as to suggest that ''everything'' involving the three gargoyles might have been Quasimodo's imagination. [[FridgeHorror Well, when you spend your whole life alone in a bell tower...]] On an even darker note, "Hellfire" is a decidedly non-comedic VillainSong version of this.

** The original has "On the Open Road" which included a bunch of girls popping out of a piano, while it's played in the back of a pick up truck and a corpse dancing on a hearse. Being a Goofy movie of course, it's not ''impossible'' that this is actually happening, but it's still pretty trippy.
** ''An Extremely Goofy Movie'' has the nightmare fueling "C'mon Get Happy" sequence, which seemingly suggests an 'experimental phase' when Goofy first went to college in the 70's.

** A few of the musical numbers, including comic relief character Batty's introduction, and the villain Hexxus's [[VillainSong song]] (both of which have the potential to traumatize children).

** The single song is this trope turned up to 11 and manages to be both a TearJerker and horrific at the same time. It helps that Art Garfunkel sings it.
