Cochrane holding a recording of Magic Carpet Ride

"Magic Carpet Ride" was a song performed by the Human music group Steppenwolf in 1968.

Zefram Cochrane, a fan of rock and roll music, played "Magic Carpet Ride" during the launch of Earth's first warp ship, the Phoenix, in 2063. Copilots William T. Riker and Geordi La Forge, and Deanna Troi in mission control, were rather bemused by Cochrane's taste in music. (Star Trek: First Contact)

Lyrics Edit

I like to dream yes, yes, right between my sound machine
On a cloud of sound I drift in the night
Any place it goes is right
Goes far, flies near, to the stars away from here

Well, you don't know what we can find
Why don't you come with me little girl
On a magic carpet ride
You don't know what we can see
Why don't you tell your dreams to me
Fantasy will set you free
Close your eyes girl
Look inside girl
Let the sound take you away

– Excerpted from "Magic Carpet Ride"
