Over My Shoulder (1995) - Mike + the Mechanics - Voc. Paul Carrack
"Magic Carpet Ride" is a song written by John Kay and Rushton Moreve from the hard rock band 'Steppenwolf'. The song was initially released in 1968 on the album The Second. It was the lead single from that album, peaking at No. 3 in the US, and becoming the band's second-biggest hit, surpassed only by "Born to Be Wild". The song is also considered the first modern rock video.

U2 - One...Bono described the song's theme as such: "It is a song about coming together, but it's not the old hippie idea of 'Let's all live together.' It is, in fact, the opposite. It's saying, We are one, but we're not the same. It's not saying we even want to get along, but that we have to get along together in this world if it is to survive. It's a reminder that we have no choice". "One" is one of my favorite U2 songs.
