Songs that are probably about drugs

There are lots of famous songs that refer to drugs, from RHCP's Under The Bridge to Rodriquez's Sugarman, and Miley Cyrus's We Cant Stop can be added to that list. But there are some songs, although not admitted to by the artists themselves, that we think are probably about drugs in an alternate universe. Wouldn't you agree?

Kaptein by Kurt Darren
The popular Afrikaans singer is singing about islands in dreams and an imaginary captain on an imaginary boat. One could easily be on some hallucinogen when you hear this song. If that doesn't convince you, just check out the trippy music video.

I'm Gonna Be (500 miles) by The Proclaimers
The hyper energy in this song is just too similar to someone being high on coke. You'd have to be on something in any case to walk that many miles. And don't forget the random interjections of 'da da-da da'. It's enough to make anyone jumpy.

Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen
"It's hard to look right, at you baby. But here's my number. So call me, maybe?" So your vision is blurred and you can't see straight, but you are gonna hit on some random you've never met before? Could be love. Could be alcohol. Most of the time they have the same effect.

Bangarang by Skrillex
We know Skrillex isn't known for his deep lyrics, but dubstep has always been closely associated with drugs like MDMA and in a song where you have a made up word and lines like 'we rowdy' you have to assume someone somewhere had some specific, pill-sized reasons to be 'rowdy'.

Firework by Katy Perry
This song is about igniting a light and shooting across the sky. Let's face it, Katy might be singing about drugs. Why else would she be so obsessed with Candy Land...

Hit Me Baby One More Time by Britney Spears
The name just says it all. The song is probably about Britney going into withdrawal and 'Baby' is seeming more and more like a needle than a loverboy. Maybe there is more she should be confessing...

*Humor disclaimer: What makes this funny is that none of the songs are actually about drugs. Get it? No?
