Best Songs About Drugs

The Top Ten

1 Heroin - The Velvet Underground

...be the death of me... - djpenquin999

2 Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds - The Beatles

It's not about drugs.. it was about a drawing by John's son.. when he asked about its name he said lucy in the sky with diamonds so he got an idea which was writing a song about it - ahmedaser

This is about a painting of a girl named Lucy that one of their sons made. - djpenquin999

Lucy = L / Sky = S / Diamonds = D - Boi

Moral of the story
Never listen to watchmojo (they said its about lsd)

3 Purple Haze - Jimi Hendrix
4 White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane
5 Mr. Brownstone - Guns N' Roses
6 Got to Get You Into My Life - The Beatles

Paul McCartney said that this is his ode to pot, and this is my favorite song by the Beatles. I think it's amazing. It can be easily taken for meaning love; however, lyrics like "I took a ride," and "Another kind of mind," should be some red flags for those who aren't open minded enough about it.

7 Day Tripper - The Beatles
8 I'm Waiting for the Man - The Velvet Underground
9 Break On Through (To the Other Side) - The Doors
10 Master of Puppets - Metallica

It's the anthem of all metal! Obey your master refers to, in my opinion, the fact that the drugs are controlling you and you have no control over stopping it.

This song's gloomy atmosphere and lyrics perfectly depict being trapped in a drug addiction. "Your life burns faster / obey your master! "
