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

Epic, dramatic, agonistic

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.

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 77 I heard this song "in search of space version" hundreds of times without a break and for sure it is one of my most heard songs ever

Best song from their second album. - SammySpore

Best song. Full Stop.

The epitomy of Space Rock

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

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

I love how this is all over the place yet traveling in the same direction path this song took. It takes my mind places.

Moonglum - friend without a reason. From Live Chronicles. Absolutely stunning song, I love every single thing about it.
