you have a way of walkin' round, your feet they never touch the ground

Even if I don't talk about them as much as a lot of other bands, Jefferson Airplane has been a consistent presence in my life for years. After Bathing at Baxter's is one of my favourite albums of all time, and when this-wheel's-on-fire suggested a top 5 Jefferson Airplane list, I knew it was definitely a good call. Unlike most people, I actually prefer Paul Kantner's songs to Grace Slick's - I love his voice. But, really, they're all good.

1. "Watch Her Ride" from After Bathing at Baxter's

2. "Comin' Back to Me" from Surrealistic Pillow

3. "Two Heads" from After Bathing at Baxter's

4. "Young Girl Sunday Blues" from After Bathing at Baxter's

5. "She Has Funny Cars" from Surrealistic Pillow

I feel lazy not doing write-ups (wait...I don't just "feel", I am lazy), but there really isn't much to say. Jefferson Airplane rules, plain and simple.

Adore Jefferson Airplane, I also really like the song 'White Rabbit'.

You cant have an amazing playlist without some Sabbath! I still have more songs I want to add but it's hard to pick them

I was so crazy about Airplane in high school. Was listening to White Rabbit at the gym just the other day.

I've always liked them. My uncle had a lot of their records. I don't think I've ever owned very much of their music myself though. I need to change that.

Great list Molly love. White Rabbit (I know, it's the most commercial of their songs) always plays in my house and I'm still upset (despite the song being out in the 60's) that it's such a short track. Talk about trippy music...

I love coming to your blog Molly love. You're always reminding me, and introducing me to the mostly unappreciated stuff...

Besitos para siempre

I love you so much right now! haha. Jefferson Airplane is one of my favorite bands. I go back and forth between Grace and Paul, but I agree with most of your list. "White Rabbit" is my #1 though.

Yay Jefferson Airplane! No Starship love, though? ::ducks:: ok, ok, I'll pretend I didn't go there.
