Okay, for my final project in english class, grade 12, I have to find songs by Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix that relate to drugs. So if you could name some songs that you know that lyrics relate to drugs then that would be helpful.

This is my final project and I have to do good on it, I have to compare there lyrics somehow, she told me to use drugs, I have to talk about it for 15-20 minutes in front of the class. I figured I would put on two 10 minutes songs but I guess im not allowed to do that.

If you can name even one song it would help me alot. I procrastonated a bit so im kinda screwed. Thanks

I probably should have mentioned i have purple haze and manic depression, i dont know if that is one or not. But those are the two i have so far, and none for The Doors.

You will be hard pressed to find anything by the Doors about drugs

yeah thats what i was thinking too, but i guess it could be an analogy or something, like they dont have to exactly say a drug. Yeah maybe i should stop procrastonating.
#6
That's what I was looking for, but I got nada

Edit-X: Though if you are good at bullshiting, then you could Jimi Hendrix - Angel

"she told me to use drugs"

Anyway, does it have to be literal? Do you need the lyrics to actually mention drugs or can it be metaphorical? If it can be metaphorical then it really isn't hard. A LOT of their songs are about drugs or drug experiences.
#12
haha.. she did tell me to hand out acid and that could be my project.. but i dont feel like buying alot if it, and yes it can be analogys or metaphorical, its better that way. Do you think you could help a fellow guitarist out and name a few for me.

At first I thought Red House by Hendrix was about drugs.

I love neapolitan ice cream, but I HATE VANILA AND STRAWBERRY!

Sounds like a awesome project to do. I had to do a 50 minute presentation about post-colonial theory.

The crystal ship-The Doors

Really good song. Is related to drugs.

Stone Free by Hendrix


Thats actually incorrect, its about being free from the 'burden' of a woman. As jimi saw it at that point when he wrote it.

i had to do a half hour presentation on the history and influences of metallica, why, as a punishment for listening to them on my mp3 in class.
#22
You could say "Love Her Madly" - the Doors is about a drug, as like a metaphorical infatuation, yeah thats some first class BS right there haha

Did you tell her that you were working on your project attempting to find references to drug use in his songs?

On that note, I'll read up on some Doors lyrics when I listen to them later and tell you if I find anything.

"People are strange" "Strange days" "Waiting for the sun" "Break on through" are pretty much all about Acid trips.

my old man used to take acid, he says what they show you on telly is rubbish, he started talking about enlightenment and stuff, got wierd. He's encouring me to try it, but he warned me that LSD can either give you a good time, or completley **** with youre mind, and turn you insane (like a certain MR. Barrett).

Theres only a few songs from Hendrix refering to Acid etc, but mainly "Are you experienced" "3rd stone from the sun" etc are all a bit trip induced.

thanks nick dixon.. that helps alot

yeah my dad told me when he first took acid he had a bad trip, he was walking home and he said it felt like his heart was coming out of his chest or something like that.
