Current Hit: “Colorado” by Milky Chance
Linked to: “Because I Got High” by Afroman/2001
Because: Both songs are super-mellow and both songs refer to getting high via pot.
Afroman’s whole song is about a happy high, while “Colorado’s” infectious chorus mentions it in passing, as the story line is really about girl-left-boy and boy-is-at-a-loss about it.
So I get high like Colorado
We had it all but what do I know?
I try to push away the sorrow
But today, it’s too late, I try tomorrow
