Do you ever hear a enjoy song and consider about a thing other than a crush? For me, I am virtually normally singing a enjoy song to pot.
It sounds ridiculous at very first but consider about it—lots of us are actually in enjoy with cannabis. I know I am. And for great cause. It requires care of me when I am sick and when I am not. It assists me see other people’s perspectives and gets me by way of difficult occasions. It keeps me firm on the couch at household or on a hike across the globe. It keeps me balanced, creating confident I feed my physique and thoughts in healthier approaches but it also convinces me to indulge when I deserve it—hell it tends to make me really feel like I normally deserve it. It does all the issues a great companion does.
So naturally, when I hear a song that articulates all these traits and feelings commonly reserved for romantic relationships, I consider of our favourite plant.
This Valentine’s Day I decided to compile a list of enjoy songs that, primarily based on their titles, lyrics, musicality or combinations of all three—could quickly double as enjoy songs about pot.
Listening to these gems and just attempt not considering about weed!
You are Makin Me Higher – Toni Braxton
Take a break from rooting for Tamar Braxton on Celebrity Massive Brother, but just lengthy adequate to listen to this classic R&B enjoy song from her sister Toni. In fact, do oneself a favour and watch the music video alternatively, which was iconic even when it was very first released back in 1996.
You are Makin Me Higher was Braxton’s very first quantity 1 hit and will forever be on the soundtrack of my childhood. It is such a great track and quickly doubles as enjoy song to pot. Listen to these lyrics: “Oh I get so higher, when I’m about you infant, I can touch the sky, you make my temperature rise, you are makin’ me higher […] Light my fire, blow my flame, take me, take me, take me away.”
Brass in Pocket – Pretenders
Okay this song does not specifically match completely into the enjoy song genre but to me it is like an anthem of self-enjoy and it is 1 of my favourite songs to get baked and just rock out to.
I use each music and cannabis to support enhance my mood and self-self-confidence and I really feel like this track completely exemplifies the way I really feel immediately after I have a small hoot, specifically immediately after a lengthy day. “Cause I gonna make you see—there’s no one else here—no 1 like me—I’m unique, so unique.” Just after days of convincing myself this song deserves to be on this playlist in spite of its non-enjoy song status I discovered that there is really a direct cannabis reference in it—so right here it stays.
When (badass) Chrissie Hynde’s sings “got rhythm, I cannot miss a beat, got new skank it is so reet” she is referring cartoonist’s Robert Crumb’s perform “one cartoon of his had this pot gauge a machine for measuring the high quality of cannabis. If it was genuinely, genuinely great stuff they named it ‘reet petite” according to Louder. Plus, I like to consider it is a brass pipe in pocket.
You Make Loving Exciting – Fleetwood Mac
I’m confident this rock group got into their fair share of doobie-smoking in the course of their meteoric rise to fame in the 1970’s. You Make Lovin Exciting, written and sung by the band’s keyboardist and vocalist Christine McVie, is from the band’s most prolific album, Rumours.
The Rumours’ recordings had been infamously dramatic, possessing begun even though most members of the band had been undergoing romantic distress. McVie herself had just divorced from her husband John McVie—bassist in the band. Regardless of the drama (or perhaps for the reason that if it), Fleetwood Mac managed to develop arguably 1 of the very best albums of all time. It is on the list for the reason that anybody who discovered cannabis later in life can relate to these lyrics, “I under no circumstances did think in the approaches of magic, but I’m starting to wonder why” plus, cannabis certainly tends to make “Loving, enjoyable,” if you know what I imply!
Greater Enjoy – Steve Winwood & Chaka Khan
This 1986 track with its wicked hook is an absolute bop and deserves to be on any playlist. The instrumentals on this track are specifically appreciated immediately after a good joint. Give it a attempt and inform me correct enjoy does not exist.
The Sweetest Taboo – Sade
I consider we can all agree that cannabis is The Sweetest Taboo. Sade is the queen of dreamy visuals and storytelling, and The Sweetest Taboo, the lead single from her second LP Guarantee, is no distinctive.
The song is really an ode to a specifically great lover, and the sexual tension on the track is palpable. Though the music video exudes enjoy, it is the title that genuinely lands this 1 on my playlist… and the line “will you maintain bringing out the very best in me” normally make me consider of cannabis. Also, neglect Valentine’s Day, in the words of Sade with weed, “every day is Christmas, and each and every evening is New Year’s Eve.”
Make Me Really feel – Janelle Monae
This song was the inspiration for this short article. I imply study these lyrics, it couldn’t be a additional precise description of how cannabis tends to make me really feel: “It’s like I’m highly effective with a small bit of tender. An emotional, sexual bender. Mess me up, yeah, but no 1 does it far better. That is just the way you make me really feel: so true, so great, so fuckin’ true.” It could also be about ecstasy but I’m not an professional on ecstasy… I only did it once—and there’s a 60% possibility that was a Sweettart. Monae’s I Like That is on the playlist also.
Boo’d Up – Ella Mai
You have likely heard this song at the club or on the radio lately—it is 1 of these songs you are virtually quickly singing along to. And I’m singing to weed: “Oooooooo no I’ll under no circumstances get more than you till I locate a thing new, that get me higher like you do.” The 24-year old English singer and songwriter utilizes metaphors about drugs in her music about enjoy but for me – the lyrics are also relevant for my feelings about weed to be about something else. Mai’s song Trip is also on the playlist.
