Songs about drugs? This is the first one that pops up immediately in my mind.

petit élève    Jeu, 12/04/2018 - 17:46

R.I.P Amy...

petit élève    Jeu, 12/04/2018 - 18:52

Lots of Thiéfaine songs deal with drugs. La fille du coupeur de joints for a laugh, Cabaret Sainte-Lilith for something rather gruesome. The best part is the quote from Pope John Paul II, complete with Polish accent ("mankind only makes sense on Earth as the likeness of God's image") Regular smile

A couple of songs playing on Heroin's nicknames: Golden brown and Brown sugar

EnrixosfromParis    Jeu, 12/04/2018 - 18:48

Pas mal la deuxième, je ne connaissais pas ce chanteur, il est cash, et c'est cool Regular smile

petit élève    Jeu, 12/04/2018 - 19:31

Oui, ça date d'avant la dictature du politiquement correct et l'arrivée au pouvoir des publicitaires...

EnrixosfromParis    Ven, 13/04/2018 - 22:29

Thanks !
Yes i knew about the marijuana colelction, but i think it's ok like that. later if we have enough songs it might be good to categorize according to specific drugs.

EnrixosfromParis    Mer, 18/04/2018 - 18:21

That's really cool ! Regular smile and thanks for notifying. Regular smile

This group was mainly created for illegal drugs, having generally a bad effect on health (no alcohol, or chocolate, or coffee, or sex, or cigarettes...)
But of course, this could also be true for legal drugs, the only distinction being legal/illegal in today's law

Well, we could do as you say and split between legal and illegal drugs,
or split between some types of drugs, as majijuana already and has its own collection.
I have here mainly Heroin and cocaine, plus (any) drug effect on people.But there are a lot.

Just tell what you would prefer.

Sciera    Jeu, 19/04/2018 - 16:32

Different collections for different drugs?
I wasn't aware of there already being a collection on marijuana.
I suppose that would be a good idea then for me to restrict my collection to songs about alcohol.
The following songs could be added to this collection here or to new ones, but many of them are about drugs in general and don't really specify which one (or if they do, not in a clear enough way for me to know): (LSD) (unspecified) (heroine or unspecified) (unspecified) (cocaine) (heroine) (unspecified) (unspecified, probably cocaine) (unspecified) (cocaine) (cocaine)

solo    Jeu, 19/04/2018 - 20:04

oh, didn't think drug collections will go that far.
AIC's Godsmack is h; demo for Real Thing is called literaly "H", but has clear coke references. Metallica's Master of Puppets has both coke and h references.

IdiotKilljoyWithoutPride    Mer, 09/05/2018 - 16:46

Hi! Here some songs that I think could suit this collection

Green Day - Give Me Novocaine
It talks about a guy, Jimmy, who gets caught up in a addiction of novocaine

Machine Gun Kelly - Merry Go Round
A long and sad story about a couple addicted to drugs, in the end she dies because of an overdose

Tokio Hotel - Cotton Candy Sky
Not so explicit but pretty obvious it talks about an addiction to drugs

Sleeping With Sirens - Heroine
I'm not so sure about this one, but it's a cool song though

Sciera    Ven, 07/09/2018 - 18:39

The entries 22 and 48 contain the same song.
