Primal Scream – Loaded

Primal Screamin läpimurtobiisin sanotaan kertovan ekstaasista tai mistä tahansa partyhuumeesta.

“Just what is it that you want to do?
We wanna get loaded and have a good time.
We wanna have a party (Yeah!)
That’s what we wanna do

I don’t wanna lose your love
I don’t wanna lose your love
I don’t wanna lose your love
I don’t wanna lose your love

Just what is it that you wanna do?

I’m gonna get deep down, deep down I said
I’m gonna get deep down, deep down woo hey!

We wanna be free to do what we wanna do
But way baby, lets go

I don’t wanna lose your love
I don’t wanna lose your love

We wanna be free to do what we wanna do

Oh yeah

We wanna be free to do what we wanna do”

Run-D.M.C. – Pause

Run-D.M.C.:n Back from Hell -levyltä löytyvä Pause taitaa olla sanomaltaan aika huumevastainen biisi.

“Afros…. yeahhh
Afros! Yeahhh
Brothers be out there doin crack… Nooooooo!
They be doin dope… Nooooooo!
They be gangbangin! Nooooooo!
All them brothers need to just

Yeah I’m with that
Here comes the Afros, and the forty ounce crew
Who say slowly but surely, we gonna turn the mother out
We got more, in store, young ladies on the floor, so cool out

Intro, which means I start it
In other words, herbs departed
Pause, stop for the cause
Get up, get down, you get yours
Chill, no time to get ill
Word to herb — yeah it’s the will of God
So whassup Hobbes?
Just jock, clock, rock, and don’t stop but

Pause, pause for the cause, get yours
But don’t break laws
Quit, quit it, forget it
Pause, say your way with it
Pause, if you did it, admit it
Cause, you shouldn’ta did it
Next time, you think of doin a crime
Pause, and remember this rhyme

Pause for the cause, cause broken laws
Are just like broken jaws
They take a long time to heal
I’m for real, and I know the deal
Look it over, investigate
Evaluate, think!
Life is wrong, and full of flaws
Before you break laws just pause!

I think that worked man

Yeah pause, this beat is dope D
I’m tellin you, this beat is dope, just slammin, it’s dope

Well if it’s dope, I hope it’s not crack
Or coke, or nuttin like somethin you EVER smoke
And if they offer you some say NO
Or pause
The reason I wrote this rhyme, is not to climb
But just to tell all mankind
That the use and abuse of drugs — will what?
Will, blow, your, mind

Like dough makes bread, it goes straight to your head
You’re misled and then you’re dead
Now that’s not fly, when you die
On a high
Like a trip, oooh, you make me sick
Ill, lookin like doo doo on a stick
You don’t have to be a vic
Life is like a flick, so pause

Pause, p-pause, pause, p-p-pause

Alright y’all, now that you understand
My man Run never ran
I’m gonna take this mic yo my hand
And hand this to the one man band

Now pause, now pause

I’m Jay, I make up the trey
Now check out the dance that I display
It’s called the pause
A new thing, on the dancefloor
First you move, then you stop
Combine the hustle, foxtrot, pop and lock
Put em all together why because
It’s called the pause

Slammin, the dance is slammin
Pause, the people are jammin
Stop again, back to the groove
I show you how to move
It’s simple, just like stop and go
You can pause on the fast or slow
Participate, won’t you all get down
Here’s a solo from my homeboy Stanley Brown

Ahh yeah, I like this R&B shit…
Pause, pause, one more time!
Yeah, do that, do that…
Now pause!”

Häiriköt – Liimaa liimaa

Kovin Ramonesin tapaan pistetään punkiksi tässä biisissä, jossa vaaditaan lisää Bostik A3:sta.

“Liimaa liimaa
Bostik A kolmosta ostin rautakaupasta
Bostik A kolmosta vedän valtsun kassista
Bostik A kolmosta ostin rautakaupasta
Bostik A kolmosta vedän valtsun kassista
Lisää liimaa
Lisää lisää
Liimaa liimaa

Come on
Elämä on ikävää
Elämä on tylsää
Joo niin se on
Maailma on musta
Ei sitä kestä ilman puudutusta
Ei ei kestäkään
Come on come on mennään liimaa haistamaan”

Mother Love Bone – Come Bite the Apple

Biisi kertonee MLB:n laulajan Andrew Woodin heroiiniriippuvuudesta. Omena toimii tässä biisissä heroiinin metaforana. Wood kuolikin yliannostukseen muutama päivä ennen levyn julkaisua ja näin ainokainen levy jäi bändin viimeiseksi.

“How did I get here
What song did I sing
Just what have I done to deserve such a thing
(You say I’ve heard all that before)
(So won’t you give it up and stop using me)
(I’ve heard all that before)
So bring me an apple, I’m crying
I been persecuted, like a lying man
The spirit provides me
Its what I am today
This spirit it gives but also can take away
(And you say I’ve heard all that before)
(So won’t you give it up baby and stop using me)
(I’ve heard this all before)
So come bite the apple, I’m run down
Like sodom to gommorah, all dead now
So please stop to laugh and pity me
My soul means well but I’m sorry
My skin it is withered and I’m nervous
My future was in my hands, ’til I washed it all away
Get along little sister I heard your doing well
Doing well said get along little sister
Heard your doing well
Etc, bla, bla, bla”

Brand Nubian – Slow Down

Hmm… ainakin eka säe kertoo kaverista, joka jättää tyttönsä, koska tämän huumeiden käyttö menee pahempaan suuntaan.

“The object of your affection is the tree-top connection
Or basically you love to smoke the wools
The crackheads attract man they come up to my door
I don’t smoke gems so what they knocking for”

The Orb – Little Fluffy Clouds

“They went on forever
And they — when I
We lived in Arizona
And the skies always had little fluffy clouds
And they were long and clear”

Biisin sanat on samplattu laulaja Rickie Lee Jonesin haastattelusta. Rickie Lee Jonesin on sanottu olevan haastattelun aikana huumeiden vaikutuksen alaisena, mutta itse hän väitti jälkikäteen vastausten outouden johtuneen kuumeesta.
