I was hugely let down when I found out (not early enough indeed) that this song hadn't been written by Hendrix, but by Bob D. His version is glorious, though.

Very hard to choose just one. Too hard really. That said, I do prefer his blues/acoustic stuff, so I'm going:

Definitely would be Purple Haze, or Fire.

My favorite is Fire - a great hard-rocking, up-tempo tune. And I love Alice Cooper´s cover of Fire!

Other great Jimi Hendrix songs are Purple Haze, Voodoo Child (Slight Return), Still Raining Still Dreaming, Little Wing, All Along the Watchtower, Crosstown Traffic, May This Be Love and Little Miss Strange.

I hear many here picking well-known classics like Purple Haze,Hey Joe,Little Wing(I think this song is overrated when it comes to Jimi's Best Songs though tbh),All Along the Watchtower,Voodoo Child etc....and those are great songs...but I'd like to mention some of the songs that aren't as popular which are favorites of mine

Here's a list of my favorites(it will most likely be long)

Somewhere(New Restored Version from People,Hell & Angels...tho the butchered dubbed over version of the 70s ain't half bad either)
Rainy Day,Dream Away(best Rain song ever nuff said...most chilling song ever)
Lower Alcatraz
Nine to the Universe
Mr.Bad Luck
Gloria(cover song)
Valleys of Neptune
Third Stone from the Sun
Castles Made of Sand
My Friend
Crash Landing
Burning of the Midnight Lamp
Peace in Mississippi
Trash Man

Machine Gun is def my favorite.

Very hard to choose just one but Red House is pretty special.

Too difficult to answer with just one, but I guess if I had to, it'd be "Third Stone From The Sun". I always thought it'd make for a good hip-hop sample.

Either "If 6 Was 9" or "1983...(A Merman I Should Turn to Be)"
