-

"Magic Carpet Ride" is a rock song written by John Kay and Rushton Moreve from the Canadian-American 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 number three in the US, and staying in the charts for 16 weeks, longer than any other Steppenwolf song.

The single version differs noticeably from the album version with a different vocal take by Kay used for the first verse of the song and differing instrumental balances, most notably the introduction feedback. The single version is also much shorter than the album version, with a running time of 2 minutes and 55 seconds. (The album version is 4 minutes and 25 seconds long.)

The lyrics "I like to dream, right between my sound machine" were inspired by a hi-fi home stereo system John Kay bought with royalties from his first album.

In 1988, the band rerecorded the song with the hip hop group Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five. The track appeared on their reunion album On the Strength.
