: After seeing a few of the lyrics below, I realized just how
: many UNveiled references to junk are in the Stones music...
: Of course, they often are comparable to a love affair...
: Like "How can I stop?..." "can't clean you out of my veins..."
: And surprisingly...I never really thought about it before,
: but Connection really does apparently predate Keith's heroin
: use...by a year or so...Anyone have the lowdown on that?
: Anyway, how boutsta list that details the amount of lyrics
: that the Stones have dedicated to referencing dooooope.
: Overtly or veiled that is...it ain't a thang but a chicken wang.
: There's gotta be at least 3 or 4.....:)
"I'll be in my basement room with a needle and a spoon/Another girl will take my pains away" Dead Flowers
"Drop those reds and greens and blues" Sweet Virginia
"...and I hid your speed inside my shoe" Sweet Virginia
"...with a head full of snow" Moonlight Mile
"You got cocaine eyes..." Can't You Hear me Knocking?
"Sister Morphine..." That one's pretty self-explanatory!
"...a jaded, faded, junkie nurse for company..." Let it Bleed
"Booze and pills and powders/You can choose your medicine" Before They Make me Run
"Doctor prescribes/Drug store supplies/Who's gonna help when he kicks it" Torn and Frayed
I am sure there are more, but that's a start!
