The Beatles song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" does not stand for "LSD", the title actually comes from John Lennon's son Julian, who left his mark on more than one Beatles song. His drawing of a nursery school classmate Lucy O'Donnell caught his father's eye and when asked what it was called Julian replied, "Lucy in the sky with diamonds".
