I Don’t Do Drugs Lyrics
Doja Cat has teamed up with Ariana Grande to write her latest hit, “I Don’t Do Drugs.” The lyrics of this song are a great example of how love and drugs can both have an impact on a person’s life. Check out the lyrics below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
White Lines (Don’t Do It) by Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five
If you’re a hip-hop fan, chances are you know about this song. It’s one of the earliest and most influential pieces of music in the genre.
The track was inspired by a NYC downtown band called Liquid Liquid, who were one of the first New York punk bands to incorporate funk and hip-hop elements. The bassline and other elements from their song “Cavern” were incorporated into Grandmaster Flash and Melle Mel’s 1982 hit, which eventually became their first #1 record.
It was a big hit, reaching the UK Top 20 and even making it into Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 greatest songs of all time. It’s a great track, but it also has its flaws.
“Chasing the Beetle” by Blur
We all know ‘Chasing the Beetle’ as one of Blur’s most endearingly cute songs, but inspecting closely the lyrics it becomes obvious that Graham Coxon had a far bigger hand in the writing than we might have thought. As such the song has a distinct Coxon flavour, one that can be heard in all his later solo releases (apart from the early one) and in the sheer bombast of tracks like ‘Country House’ and ‘Charmless Man’.
While the music isn’t particularly innovative, it’s still very ska-flavoured and a good example of Coxon’s penchant for concise, veeeeeeery guitar driven pop. The lyrics are also quite good, a little fey and almost hypnotic at times. It’s a great song, one of the bands most underrated and overlooked works.
“Needle in the Hay” by Elliott Smith
Elliott Smith was one of the most influential songwriters in alternative indie folk music, and his lyrics were filled with melancholic melodies that often reflected his dark and troubled state of mind. Sadly, Smith passed away in 2004 and left behind a musical legacy that will be missed by many.
His debut album Roman Candle, released in 1997, is a melancholic collection that showcases his unique talent. Its melancholic tunes and intelligent lyrics make it an important piece of the Elliott Smith story.
The ensuing album, Either/Or, takes on his own thoughts and opinions about life. It’s not an easy listen, but it’s an important one because it reveals his inner struggle at the time of its release.
“Dead Flowers” by The Stones
Flowers are a beautiful symbol of love and affection, but they can also be harmful. The song “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” by Poison discusses the duality of flowers and how they can be both beautiful and deadly at the same time.
Another great song about flowers is “Build Me Up Buttercup” by The Foundations. This song features a beautiful buttercup that helps to build the speaker up.
The Stones are no strangers to songs about love and relationships, and they have an extensive catalogue of classic hits that are sure to please any fan. Their cover of “Dead Flowers” from their 1976 album New Riders of the Purple Sage is a particularly fine example, with pedal steel playing by Buddy Cage adding to the country feel.
“Legalize It” by Peter Tosh
Born in Boppard, Rhineland-Palatinate, West Germany on May 29, 1975, Tosh was raised in Titusville, Florida. He is the son of a Presbyterian minister.
Tosh graduated from Astronaut High School in 1993 and enrolled at the University of Central Florida in 1996, where he earned a marketing degree. During his time in college, Tosh worked as a telemarketer at Central Florida Research Park for $15 per hour.
He soon landed a gig as a spokesman in taco bell commercials and started appearing on national shows. His big break came in 2001 when he appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman. He has also performed specials on Comedy Central.
