Best Songs By Jefferson Airplane / Starship


The Top Ten

1 White Rabbit

On of the best songs ever written or sang. Perfect.

Absolutely one of my very favourites of all time by any band, although I prefer the version Grace Slick did with the Great Society

Mistic, incredible

2 Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now

Better than today's crappy music. - Gehenna

Somebody to love is my favorite but this one definitely needs to be higher

Nice song and great video! We built this city is cool too

No no no. My ears are bleeding. Such a letdown for a band that made so many great songs

3 Somebody to Love

I listened to White Rabbit first and I was shocked to hear music of that level. Then I heard this song and I was in love with Jefferson's. I play it quite often on my guitar too. Cool chords and really good music. Although I haven't heard most of their song, but so far this is the best one.

'White Rabbit' and 'Somebody to Love' are Grace slick's gift to Jefferson Airplane and undoubtedly the best tracks of this band so far.

What a lame selection! Gotta be joking that great songs like 'Today' not even featured here... Guess the Rabbit mad e it, just about though

4 We Built This City

I think that this song is GREAT! I don't understand why this song is hated so much. Okay, the music video is weird, but I think still that it's cool. - galaxyfox

It's very good, it's also better than todays crappy music. - Gehenna

This song was never bad, it was always good - Gehenna

What a catchy song this is. I'm not worrying about the lyrics, I just love how it sounds

My favorite song in the 80's - westofohio

Reminds me of my girl Maddie

6 Miracles

The prettiest and best song they had. You didn’t have to be high to enjoy it.

One of the most peaceful songs ever

So much better than most on this list.

Magical, mystical, miracles...

7 Count on Me

Love it over and over.

This is the one for me! It takes me back to that happy place! It's my favorite of all time!

I absolutely love this song! One of the best songs ever!

The best I can listen to this over and over

8 Runaway

Guitar riff toward the end is fantastic

My favorite song by JS. Incredible guitar lines and harmonies. Song always takes me somewhere else and brings back the butterflies of falling in love and wanting to Runaway.

9 It's Not Over ('til It's Over)
10 Jane

Are you kidding me! This is one of the best rock songs of all time. It puts me in heaven every time I listen to it, it is way better then 12 on the list. Also it's their best song

My favorite rock song of all time! So, obviously, I think it should be #1 on here.

This should sit at No.3. storming rock track.

Just listen -- too bad gracy isnit on it

The Contenders

11 With Your Love

This is my favorite, although White Rabbit is a great song. Marty Balin’s voice is special, and this song is the perfect song for him.

12 Today

Such a lame list! Kids nowadays have simply listened to White Rabbit & Somebody to Love and call themselves hippies... This is by far the best song by the Plane

Jerry Garcia plays the high notes in the recurring lick here.

100-300ug of acid + Today = ecstacy

best vocal

13 Sweeter Than Honey
14 Find Your Way Back

The vocal combination of this group was hard to beat back in the day. They outdid themselves on this one. Their best by far.

Best song or 1 of the best they made.

How could this list be complete without this heavy hitting
Power ballad.
