stoner music: the classic rock all-time greats

I don’t smoke up anymore, but I remember many a night spent staring into space with “The Tomita Planets” playing in the background. I’d say some of the factors to be be considered when determining if a song is stoner music are track length (longer is better), obscurity/depth of lyrics and whether the music has an ethereal quality to it (or a repetitive riff in there somewhere). Here’s a list of what I wuold say are the top 5 stoner classic rock songs. Or at least the top 5 I can think of at the moment (Videos for 2 through 5 after the jump).

5. Traffic: Dear Mr. Fantasy

4. America: Horse With No Name

3. The Grateful Dead: Wharf Rat

2. Traffic: Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys

1. The Doors: The End

Traffic: Dear Mr. Fantasy

America: Horse Wth No Name

The Grateful Dead: Wharf Rat

Traffic: Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys

    Here’s a great song to space out in, When It’s Too Late by Daniel Minteer. You kind of just get lost in it…reminds you of someone you once knew… He has another song called Tull that has a Pink Floyd sounding part in it…love it!

      At first, I thought you were talking about Daniel Powter and I was going to block you from further commenting. Fortunately, I was wrong. Minteer is pretty good, but I think that song is a little too edgy/rough/dirty (in a good way) to be real stoner music.
