Greatest Jimi Hendrix Songs

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Voodoo Chile

This track is so powerful, probably the most powerful Jimi Hendrix song because he says, "Cause I'm a million miles away and at the same time I'm right here in your picture frame, " and other stuff like this. Plus it sort of shows you what voodoo is like. They say that loud drumming is supposed to bring back spirits and this song has really loud drumming and a pretty complex drum solo. This would have to be his best, everything is great here, instruments and lyrics.

Sometimes you can see how skilled a musician is not by what they pour out of them, but by what they hold back. How he lingers over every note, the intensity of the drums, the poetic lyrics... He's laying it all out on the table for us. THIS is Jimi.

I have no idea how this is not in top 5.
A studio jam which takes us through a trip of psychedelic blues.
Vintage Hendrix!

How is this only 30? One of the best Hendrix blues rock songs. His performance is magical especially at the Royal Albert Hall in 1969. - BrianScott01

I have little respect for this list until this song recives a higer position. Jimmi showcases his phenominal talent in this song. He releeses it both acoustic and electric. Both are mezmerizing and flawless. He fill it with the waa pedeal and has beutiful licks and runs. One of his fineest

23 Highway Chile
24 Gloria
25 Stone Free

How is this not in the top ten I can't get enough of this song it's one of the stand outs from the album!

26 Star Spangled Banner

This is not only one of the most iconic Hendrix performances, but it was also delivered one of the most important messages our country needed to hear. By intermittently interrupting the national anthem with simulated sounds of gunfire and women screaming, he told the country that no matter the war or turmoil we face our country will still overcome it because in the past we have done the same thing numerous times. It is truly powerful, and it doesn't even contain any lyrics. I consider this one of the greatest musical achievements of the 1960s, and for a very good reason.

Definitely the greatest moment of the 60's, maybe even the century. - Doom

Who knew that a hippie could be so patriotic? - blakebouwman

Hendrix and the stratocaster...made for each other

27 Freedom
28 Third Stone From the Sun

Are you kidding me? He's literally doing some magic tricks with his guitar in this song. I close my eyes and enjoy the view from up there.

One of the greatest space rock songs to ever come from a guitar point of view. He literally takes you on an adventure with his song.

29 Up from the Skies
30 May This Be Love

This song is really good and by the looks of it underrated in my view. It's one of those songs that takes you on a journey. Imagine being inside a lava lamp and floating in a cushy lava bubble. That's how I feel when I listen to this song. #jivinwiththeflow

This song sounds really cool and different and it's a really mellow song. I dig it.

A beautiful song
