3500. Hawkwind - Steppenwolf
From: Astounding Sounds, Amazing Music; Year: 1976; Genre: Progressive Rock/Space Rock
3500 songs down and more coming; these "rollover picks" are just flying by now it seems like to me.
Anyway, I wanted to pick something apropos, but just couldn't think of anything, so I just picked this almost 10 minute opus of strange music based on the novel of the same name, which features Robert Calvert on lead vocals, which only adds even more awesomeness to the strangeness of the song.

Hear Steppenwolf on YouTube.
