200 SONGS WITH THE BEST LYRICS. This post: #15: KING HEROIN. Continues: next week.
CAFFE` LATTE` PRESENTS
200 SONGS
WITH THE
BEST LYRICS
of all-time.
#15
KING HEROIN
“…Some think my
adventure’s a joy & a thrill,
but I’ll put a gun in your hand
& make you kill.
In cellophane bags,
I’ve found my way
to heads of state
& children at play ...
Drugs were no longer the recreational creative stimulus of the 1960s by the time James Brown addressed the scourge. In 1972, he released "King Heroin" which was included on his 'There It Is' album. 
The track describes the way the drug's addictive power leads addicts to ruin. It doesn't mince words. Brown's delivery is never preachy but spoken with authenticity.
As new songs are covered on this blog, a definitive version will be added to a spotify playlist. Find it and the other Caffé Latté playlists at:
