wow, that is a hard question.
i am a huge fan of 'father bruce' and 'high flyin bird'.
weirdly enough, i love that funny little song 'a small package of value will come to you shortly' even if its just a bunch of screaming and also 'would you like a snack' which is hilarious.

Hmmmm...."White Rabbit" is always my favorite. But I love "Ice Cream Pheonix", "Spare Changye", "rejoyce" (very underrated song), "Won't You Try", "Eskimo Blue Day", "Mexico" etc...
They are extremely uncomfortable with the idea that I am a teenage girl in the body of a 60 year old career criminal who has already died 16 times...

Ballad of you & me & Pooneil
From the Fly Jefferson Airplane DVD
In repeat-to-the-year-2525 mode
I like that rhythm very much

And without any doubt the 2 songs from
Grace, because of these 2 songs many
people do know The Jefferson Airplane.

well well, I can't answer this so I'll list my favorites:
blues from an aeroplane, she has funny cars, dcba 25, today, white rabbit, somebody to love, embryonic journey, two heads, lather, if you feel, wooden ships, good sheperd, eskimo blue day, mexico, high flying bird, the house at pooneils corners, crown of creation, my best friend..

it took so much space so I shortened the list :) I could list all of the JA albums I have :)

Of course I love them all. But I'll throw Aerie (Gang of Eagles) off thier 'weakest' studio album and Fat Angel from their best (imo) album in to the mix.

don't know why,but the rule is that people like songs from the first albums,rather than later songs(not just JA,in general).i think the real musicians write better songs as they grow older,sadly,that's rare,most of them face the lack of imagination after the first album...

My favorite would be "Oops I did it again", but I just realised that it's a Britney Spears song.

Ehhmm well, I'm really into 'We Can Be Together', 'Saturday Afternoon', 'Sunfighter' these days...but I can't pick one.
I'll come back later and try to make a choice.

:D 8) First of all welcome here titi.......ehm, not all artists get better as they get older, only the REAL GOOD VIBE ones, that is, the ones who have never sold themselves out to the fashion!!! :wink:
