Mississippi Queen is a song by Mountain

Mountain guitarist Leslie West: "When Corky (Laing, drummer) brought me the idea, it was a one-chord dance song. We got real high, took out a napkin, and I came up with the main riff and the chords. Then we fit the words over the sound." Laing says of the song: "I was madly in love with The Band, and I decided to put a 'Cripple Creek' feel behind it. Later on, I told Levon Helm that I felt bad about ripping him off, but he said that he didn't hear any similarity between the 2 songs, and that we didn't owe them any money!" (thanks, CeeCeeRider)

This song was used as a title of a episode of the anime series Cowboy Bebop. (thanks, Nathan - Dillsburg, PA)
