6. 'The Wind Cries Mary'
Jimi Hendrix wrote "The Wind Cries Mary" after getting into a terrible fight with his girlfriend, Kathy Mary Etchingham. "I hit him with a frying pan," said Etchingham later. "We smashed the kitchen up. It was a horrific argument." She couldn't quite recall why they were fighting, but she thought it might have been because she cooked with a dirty pan. The band spent hours in the studio working on the song, though they eventually went with the very first take. It was the group's third single.
