In 1967, Grace Slick wrote a song for the album Surrealistic Pillow. She already wrote the song when she was not yet a member of Jefferson Airplane, but of The Great Society. This band broke up in 1966, Grace Slick joined Jefferson Airplane and brought in two songs: White Rabbit and Somebody To Love. White Rabbit is said to be written whilst hearing the Bolero from Ravell, and there could be something in that statement… Enjoy
Jefferson Airplane- White Rabbit
I heard this song on the radio lately, and thought: yes, this is a good song, too. It’s made by a band who had several incarnations, such as Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship, Starship, etc. This single is made by Starship, just as We Built This City. However, it’s not that single I want to discuss. It’s an other hit by them.
This song was made for the movie Mannequin. I’ve never seen it, but I know the single, which has been on number one in several hit charts. Grace Slick was singing, and until that time she was the oldest female singer to reach number one (the record was broken by Cher with Believe)
