One thought on “The Ultimate Junky Playlist

  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!
