The Clash – Hateful

The Clashin klassikolla “London Calling” on useampiakin huumeisiin viittaavia kappaleita. Hatefulissa ei suoraan mainita huumeita, mutta helposti tämän huumemaailmaan assosioi.

“Well, I got a friend who’s a man
What man?
The man who keeps me from the lonely, the only
He gives me what I need
What you need? What you got?
I need it all so badly

Oh, anything I want he gives it to me
Anything I want he gives it, but not for free
It’s hateful
And it’s paid for and I’m so grateful to be nowhere

This year I’ve lost some friends
Some friends? What friends?
I dunno, I ain’t even noticed

You see, I gotta go out again
Again? My friend
I gotta see the main man

Oh, anything I want he gives it to me
Anything I want he gives it, but not for free
It’s hateful
And it’s paid for and I’m so grateful to be nowhere

Oh, anything I want he gives it to me
Anything I want he gives it, but not for free
It’s hateful
And it’s paid for and I’m so grateful to be nowhere

I killed all my nerves
My nerves? What swerves?
And I can’t drive so steady, and already

I’ve lost my memory
My mind? Behind!
I can’t see so clearly

Oh, anything I want he gives it to me
Anything I want he gives it, but not for free
Anything I want, anything I want, anything I want, anything I want, anything I want”

The Simpletones – I Like Drugs

Hurmaavasti nimetty punkkipumppu teki 70-luvun lopulla varsin tarttuvan rallin, jossa tekee selväksi mieltymyksensä :-D

“I need a joint before my next class
But if I come in stoned they get all over my ass
Yesterday I went to school dusted
Everyone tells me that I will soon be busted

but I like drugs, I like drugs
making me high, making me high
I like drugs, I like drugs
Don’t ask me why, don’t ask me why, don’t ask

Everyone tell me that I’m a born loser
A fool, a disgraceful drug abuser
They say that I’m a lost and lowly child
When I turn 19 Just watch me run wild

I like drugs, I like drugs
Making me high, oh so high
I like drugs, I like drugs
Don’t ask me why, don’t ask me why, don’t ask me nothing

I like drugs, I like drugs
Making me high, oh so high
I like drugs, I like drugs
Don’t ask me why, don’t ask me why, don’t ask me about nothing at all”

Aerosmith – Reefer Headed Woman

Aerosmith julkaisi Jazz Gillumin 30-luvulla säveltämän bluesbiisin levyllään Night in the Ruts vuonna 1979. Sanoituksen oli pistetty hieman uusiksi, mutta edelleen laulellaan kovin jumissa olevasta naikkosesta.

“I got a reefer headed woman
She fell right down from the sky, good Lord
I got a reefer headed woman
She fell right down from the sky
Well, I gots to drink me two fifths of whiskey
Just to get half as high

When the good Lord made that woman
He sure went to town
When the good Lord made that woman
He sure went to town
Well, when he was feelin’ high
He sure should have been feelin’ low

I got a reefer headed woman
Lord, she fell right down from the sky
Little reefer headed woman
She fell right down from the sky
Lord, I got to drink me two fifths of whiskey
Just to get, just to get half as high”

The Clash – Koka Kola

Kokaiinista kertova kappale…

“Coming through the door is a snub nose 44
What the barrel can’t snort it can spatter on the floor
Your eyeballs feel like pinballs
And your tongue feels like a fish
You’re leaping from the windows-saying don’t
Ayaiiiiirrrghhh! *@!!*@!!*!
Don’t give me none of this!

I get good advice from the advertising world
Treat me nice says the party girl
Koke adds life where there isn’t any
So freeze, man, freeze”

Peter Tosh – Mystic Man

Laulun henkilö kehottaa olemaan käyttämättä kovia huumeita.

“I man don’t (I man don’t I man don’t )
I don’t drink no champagne (don’t drink no champagne) no I don’t
And I man don’t (I man don’t) no (I man don’t)
I don’t sniff them cocaine (don’t sniff no cocaine) choke brain
I man don’t (I man don’t) no I don’t (I man don’t)
don’t take them morphine (don’t take no morphine) dangerous
I man don’t (I man don’t I man don’t) I don’t take no heroin
(don’t take no heroin) nonono”

Talking Heads – Drugs

Aika onnistunut trippi- tai käyttökuvaus.

“And all I see is little dots
Some are smeared and some are spots
Feels like a murder but that’s alright
Somebody said there’s too much light
Pull down the shade and it’s alright
It’ll be over in a minute or two.

I’m charged up…Don’t put me down
Don’t feel like talking…Don’t mess around
I feel mean…I feel O.K.
I’m charged up…Electricity”
