Ya Livin' Foul...
If you are going to debate whether or not "in good health" was an oxymoron...you probably thought about calling the number, you fucking space cadet.
Two incredible verses, between the two classics, each revolving around the topic of coping with a significant other's addiction to the way-above-mentioned substance. Complicating, to say the least.
I don't feel like going into the depressing shitstorm that is detailing the sagas starring the good friends I've "lost" to substance abuse... it's Friday and the whole "how things went wrong" business is for another day, if you're unlucky. Go out...enjoy yourselves...stay honest and healthy.
If that already put a damper on your mood, well, hearing originals always puts a smile on my face. Coincidentally, both the Brand Nubian and Nice & Smooth songs sample finger-picky, strummy guitar riffs/melodies... from two very popular singles (one actually was immensely popular...it won a Grammy) that were released in the same year...1988 (you suuckerrrrrsssss...)!
