Passion: MusicDisease: Substance dependency.
4 music selections, each approaching the topic from its own perspective.
1) The libertines - What a waster: What I would describe as a generalized and uninformed mainstream public view of a stereotypical drug addict's character and lifestyle.
2) Third eye blind - Semi-charmed life: An upbeat pop song with a super catchy hook describing the experience and some especially seedy behaviours of meth users, straightforwardly but with a superficial/sugarcoated bent on the explicit details.
3) Of montreal - Heimsdalsgate like a promethean curse: A look at organic neurochemical pathology symptoms and the parallels that can be drawn with symptoms of psychoactive substance use
4) Lil wayne - I feel like dying: Takes a cold hard look at the darkest moments experienced within an addiction, when the sickness shows it's potential for morbidity and mortality and some insight into why and how addicts relapse; how there's an acute as well as chronic pathology to a substance dependency.
