The Ultimate Junky Playlist

You might have seen this one from a previous post. The Ultimate Junky Playlist. The 24 best songs by junkies, for junkies. I’ll bet there are some songs in here you haven’t even heard! It’s not a comprehensive list. It’s a selective. It’s only my personal favorite songs about heroin that I’ve heard so far. So are so many out there, and it’s change quite frequently. There’s been many renditions of this playlist, but this is the most current. Of course, there are some staples, like Lou Reed’s Heroin and Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb. But many others have rotated in and out over the years. If you know of any that you think I should hear… please shot them over. Many readers have sent my songs that have made it on previous versions, as well as this most current one!

  1. Thanks so much for liking my blog post (“Thoughts of Mary Jane”). I love music, and you have some very good songs here (Velvet Underground’s “Heroin,” Savoy Brown’s “Needle and Spoon,” etc.). Here are two that you may want to check out: “Needle of Death” by English folksinger Bert Jansch (big influence on Neil Young and Jimmy Page). Also “Cold Blue Steel and Sweet Fire” by Joni Mitchell, which is pretty incredible.

    I admire your courage and candor, and wish you all the best!
