Day 8: A song about drugs and/or alcohol
I didn’t think about this one before. My first option was a The Doors song, but they are more on the line of dong drugs while making music. So I went with…
Needle in The Hay by Elliott Smith
“And I don’t want to talk
I’m taking the cure so I can be quiet
Whenever I want
So leave me alone
You ought to be proud that I’m getting good marks”
This song reminds me of one of my favorite scenes from the movie “The Royal Tenebaums”. It is a very sad scene and the song is very somber too. It’s a good acoustic listen, and I hope to listen to more of Elliott Smith’s songs.
Give it a listen, give music a chance.
