Anti-drugs songs

Postby Rorschach » 07 Feb 2020, 12:29

This is one of my favourites:



Odd to think that they were huge in the States but meant nothing in the UK.
But anyway, I'm pretty sure whoever designed this stage presentation was on mind-bending something or other.

What other anti-drugs songs do people like?

Kicks was the first to come to mind.

Smuggler's Blues sort of works.

If love could've saved you, you would've lived forever.

And I chop it down with the edge of my hand
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
This is where we walked,This is where we swam, Take a picture here,Take a souvenir

"Coming Up Easy" by Paolo Nutini

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFUYgIPR-cc

The song's content concentrates on Nutini's struggles with marijuana but Nutini has expressed that it can be listened to from other perspectives.

Nutini stated: "It's about my own conflict I had about marijuana but you can hear it as a song about relationships, compromising, having to deal with someone else's emotions. It's about bad habits and breaking up, but I wanted to keep it positive."





Coming Up Easy Lyrics

Sunday morning, got the hazy, hazy janes
I turn to you and inhale you where you lay
Took a wander through the garden to await the long, long day
And then roll for a while on a violet flowerbed

Oh, you kiss my lips again and again and again
And then again, again

We would watch the sun coming up easy
While the rain came tumbling down
And it washed our bodies so cleanly
That we would seem to rise up off of the cold, cold ground
It's a shame the way it seems to go

Cause now my best friend, my partner in crime
I'm afraid it looks like we're gonna have to go our separate ways
You see, the thing is, I love you, I love you
But you see, I resent you all the same
And all my other friends, they're just saying you're slowing me down

Oh, but I should have known you'd turn to me and say
Before you throw too much of me away

Don't you remember seeing the sun coming up easy
While the rain came tumbling down?
And it washed our bodies so cleanly
That we would seem to rise up off of the cold, cold ground

I see the sun coming up easy
While the rain came tumbling down
Oh and it washed our bodies so cleanly
That we could feel the rise up off of the cold, cold ground, yeah, yeah

It was in love, I was created
And in love is how I hope I die
Yeah, it was in love I was created
And in love is how I hope I die, oh, I

Yeah, it was in love I was created
And in love is how I hope I die, oh, I
Yeah, it was in love I was created
And in love is how I hope I die, oh, I, yeah

We watched the sun coming up easy
Yeah, we watched the sun coming up easy
Yeah, we watched the sun coming up easy
Oh, we watched the sun coming up easy

Oh, it was in love I was created
And in love is how I hope I die, oh, I
Oh, it was in love I was created
And in love is how I hope I die, oh, yeah

Oh, we watched the sun coming up easy
Oh, we watched the sun coming up easy

Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

This is what happens when you OD on coke.
For a year, without a break.
And I chop it down with the edge of my hand
