Best Songs About Drugs and Medicine

 Here are the Top 20 songs abouts drugs, meds and medication, the pain relievers in song. We all love a good drug for that headache or migraine, an antibiotic for that infection. If we can afford it, that is. With the rising cost of meds, the top songs should really be Money. However... we etched a few others here for you: the best medicine tunes.

1 - Love Potion No. 9 by the Searchers is our favorite medicine-related song.

2 - White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane. One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small, and the ones that mother gives you... Well, you know those aspirin don't do much at all. At least in Grace Slick's view.

3 - Bad Medicine by Bon Jovi got him and his band on the big charts.

4 - The Medicine Jar by Paul McCartney & Wings from their #1 album Venus & Mars.

5 - I Want a New Drug by Huey Lewis & the News

6 - Love is the Drug by Roxy Music with Bryan Ferry. Nice beat.

7 - We Are All on Drugs by Weezer

8 - Cocaine by Eric Clapton

9 - Doctor My Eyes by Jackson Browne

10 - Like a Surgeon by Weird Al Yankovic, a parody of Madonna's Like a Virgin.

11 - I Don't Like the Drugs (But the Drugs Like Me) by Marilyn Manson

12 - One Toke Over the Line by Brewer & Shipley, their only hit had a big impact.

13 - Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, by the Beatles and recorded again by Elton John

14 - Acid Queen by Tina Turner for the Tommy Soundstrack (The Who). She had moxie even back then in the 70s.

15 - On the Inside by Alice Cooper, about staying in a padded cell in a mental hospital. Pills were dispensed indeed.

16 - Welcome to the Machine by Pink Floyd. Wants you start, you can't stop. Welcome to the opioid crisis.

17 - Relax by Frankie Goes to Hollywood for Xanax and related mood enhancers. Lovely.

18 - Dr. Beat by Gloria Estefan

19 - Bad Case of Loving You by Robert Palmer. He's got it bad, but a few pills won't cure him.

20 - Purple Pills by D12, a hip hop band with Eminem that faded from view.

And speaking of which.... green M&M's always cured cooties, so... yeah. There you go.

Be careful out here, and remember to drink water and don't overdo the pills.

Nothing by the band: Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show? Ah well, we did our best. Those are the coolest rock songs about drugs, medicine and hospitals.
