Steppenwolf’s Magic Carpet Ride (1968) takes me on a magic carpet ride that lasts for 4 minutes and 25 seconds. Many years ago, I bought a Steppenwolf’s greatest hits CD because of this one song. I expected to come across at least three or four more songs that would make me a die-hard Steppenwolf fan. I did not come across even one more. This was quite alright. When you get to go on unlimited magic carpet rides, the cost of a greatest hits CD is well worth the price of admission.
