It might not be the deepest Mr. Hendrix song lyrically, but it's still one of my favorites.

Stupid Song? Johnny the lyrics are metaphorical for a clingy girl that Jimmy doesn't feel like wasting time on. He was playa and this song was what it was like for him and women in the 60's. Great song.

I love Jimi, but crosstown traffic is a stupid song. Listen to the lyrics. Didn't Frank Zappa say Shut up and play your guitar?
