Song of the Day Jan 11

January 11, 2024


This month I’m focusing on some great hits from the 60s.


Today our song is:  White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane


Wikipedia tells us this about the song:


"White Rabbit" was written and performed by Grace Slick while she was still with The Great Society. Slick then left The Great Society to join Jefferson Airplane to replace their departing female singer, Signe Toly Anderson (who left the band to give birth to her child). The first album Slick recorded with Jefferson Airplane was Surrealistic Pillow, and Slick provided two songs from her previous group: her own "White Rabbit" and "Somebody to Love", written by her brother-in-law Darby Slick and recorded under the title "Someone to Love" by the Great Society. The Great Society's version of "White Rabbit" was much longer than the more aggressive version of Jefferson Airplane. Both songs became top-10 hits for Jefferson Airplane and have ever since been associated with that band.






Enjoy!

  3. I was in Vegas a few years ago and saw the Blue Man Group. Toward the end of the show they had the audience singing this. I've liked it ever since.
