...
This is another earworm that I can't shake. It keeps coming back to me randomly. It's interesting how much music in the 70's was about heroin, like Golden Brown, The Stranglers (see frugal's post). Spill the wine is also about heroin. This is a drug that thankfully, I have not taken.
Another one, from those addled times; "Brown Sugar" by the Stones. ...Poor quality H, usually from Mexico. Had to laugh when some cancel culturer tried to condemn it as disrespectful to women with a certain skin tone, recently. Moron.

Warren Zevon, great poet and songwriter imo, RIP.

He made an album (The Wind) after he was given three months to live when diagnosed with lung cancer.

This is a song he did shortly before he passed away.

Heard a Madeleine Peyroux version of Desperadoes Under the Eaves today. What a great song; was going to post but only found a live version.

I was sitting in the Hollywood Hawaiian Hotel
I was staring in my empty coffee cup
I was thinking that the gypsy wasn't lyin'
All the salty margaritas in Los Angeles
I'm gonna drink 'em up
And if California slides into the ocean
Like the mystics and statistics say it will
I predict this motel will be standing until I pay my bill

With "lyrics." ;)
He just took it to the extreme.

Heavy metal = there are lyrics, just can't hear what they are.

Mainstream pop music = just repeat the same few words over and over and over and you'll reach #1 on the charts for sure.

Mozart = who needs lyrics?

Beat the lot of 'em he did. :xyxthumbs
