Best Hawkwind Songs

Very difficult to work out the best "Top 10" of Hawkwind, they've done so many good tracks and they change them a lot as well. Best as when I first heard them.

The Top Ten

1 The Psychedelic Warlords (Disappear in Smoke)

Got it all. Lemmy bass, Brock's great vocals and.. Well total total Hawkwind at their best. - megabreath

Voting for this in memory of Lemmy Kilmister. RIP. I'll be turning Hawkwind up to eleven tonight. - PetSounds

Great one.

2 The Golden Void Part 2

Well, what a track. The kinda song you'd put on to relax. Stress relief at it's best. - megabreath

Especially when you're high

As good as it gets.

"The golden void speaks to me
Denying my reality
I lose my body, lose my mind
I blow like wind, I flow like wine

Down a corridor of flame
Will I fly so high again?
Is there something wrong with me
I cannot hear, I cannot see..."

Simply Awesome

3 Silver Machine

This should at least be in the top 20. One of my favorite songs from the band.

All time classic

4 High Rise

It's the lyrics, it's all about the lyrics. Bob Calvert, such a fantastic poet. "STARFISH! " - megabreath

Capt' Calvert for ever!

Capt'n Calvert for ever!

5 Motorhead

Last of Mr Kilmister's input. It Rocks, simple as that. - megabreath

6 Master of the Universe

Best song from their second album. - SammySpore

Best song. Full Stop.

The epitomy of Space Rock

Dd Dd Ddd d D. Clasic. - megabreath

7 PSI Power

Simply a catchy tune with fantastic lyrics. - megabreath

8 Upside Down

Come on. Every Hawkwind fan has the Brixton album. "I am upside down". Even Rave never got this good. - megabreath

9 Assault and Battery
10 Lost Johnny

Yeah, I'm Motorhead fan, but Motorhead have never done a better version of this song than what was on HOTMG. - megabreath

The Contenders

11 Kings of Speed
12 Sonic Attack

My favourite version is from the album "Sonic Attack". It says what it does on the cover. - megabreath

13 The Demented Man
14 Angels of Death

Nearest Hawkwind got to Metal. Great guitar sound and what a great song. - megabreath

15 Lord of Light
16 Wind of Change
17 The Golden Void
18 Paradox

Mystic, magic, and powerful song of Middle Eastern

22 Mirror of Illusion
23 D-rider
24 Fable of a Failed Race
25 Dying Seas

How could this song be forgotten-especially as it forewarned how things would change. Immense.
