    All my favourite drug songs have really subtle references so as not to make it obvious.

    Hope this one by Queens of the Stone Age squeaks through.

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"

    I remember my firsts couple hosting seasons where I felt the need to familiarize myself with new to me songs.......which was about every song that came in. I quickly realized that it was just fine to listen to the songs as if it didn't matter. I made long winded comments too. Now I've learned not to kill myself hosting and just go with the flow.

    Making comments on YT only is just fine IMO Jim

    lol!!!!!!!!!!!

    This might just squeak in under the Thornton Rule.

    A few weeks ago I Googled a former classmate who bullied me and later turned to a life of crime. This time the search was tragic; I learned that he died of an overdose, after getting his life together. I felt badly about my schadenfreude--especially in light of how he went--and I wrote him a lullaby.

    (I have another original song on the pipe that fits the theme a little better and will post that later in the week.)

    In my original song "Indie Cred", I have the line:
    When my life flashes before me will I want that one chance back
    To have my scrotum pierced or maybe do a little smack?

    My daughter just told me it was only halfway through college that she learned that "smack" referred to heroin. She thought it was a genre of music.

    An old country song written by the great Dallas Frazier with drugs and--you guessed it!--an unhappy ending. Four-part harmony in the chorus, and I did something with the ukulele on this song that I've never done before.

    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...
