I'm not the best with my drug slang, but I was watching a commercial on TBS for "Lord of the Rings" and at the end, they said "When Gandolff is Riding the White Horse, middle earth better watch out." Isn't that slang for snorting coke or smoking crack?

White horse, or horse, is slang for heroin.

"If you wanna ride, don't ride that white horse"

...I'm pretty sure the books came out WELL before crack and some time before that slang was used for cocaine.

The phrase used wasn't from the books, it was just an advertisement that TBS wrote for the movie.

I get up around seven
Get outta bed around nine
And I don't worry about nothin' no
'Cause worrin's a waste of my... time

The show usually starts around seven
We go on stage around nine
Get on the bus about eleven
Sippin' a drink and feelin' fine

Chorus:
We been dancin' with Mr. Brownstone
He's been knockin'
He won't leave me alone
No, no ,no, he won't leave me alone
I used ta do a little but a little wouldn't do
So the little got more and more

I just keep tryin' ta get a little better
Said the little better than before
I used ta do a little but a little wouldn't do
So the little got more and more
I just keep tryin' ta get a little better
Said the little better than before

Chorus

Now I get up around whenever
I used ta get up on time
But that old man he's a real muthafucker
Gonna kick him on down the line

I used ta do a little but a little wouldn't do

I just keep tryin' ta get a little better
Said the little better than before
I used ta do a little but a little wouldn't do
So the little got more and more
I just keep tryin' ta get a little better
Said the little better than before

Chorus
Shoved it in the bindle and I shot it in the middle
And it, it drove outta my mind
I should've known better, said I wish I never met her Said I,
I leave it all behind Yowsa!

Great White HORSE? Horse as in "H"??


Buck Owens: Great White Horse Lyrics

When I was a young girl I used to dream of a lover
To be my shining knight of strength one day
He'd cary me to a castle in the heavens and battle all my dragons on the way
And he'd ride down on a great white horse he'd bring me love I was longing for
He'd bring me joy and lasting peace on a great white horse he'd ride away with me
Singing dum-di-de-dum-dum-dum-di-de-dum)

When I was a young man I used to dream of a maiden
With long soft hair flowing in the wind
Her laughing eyes and loving arms would follow
When I'd sail around the world and back again
And I'd ride down on a great white horse I'd bring the love she was longing for
I'd bring her laughter and sunny days
And on a great white horse I'd carry her away
Singing dum-di-de-dum-dum-dum-di-de-dum

(The time has flown I find there are no dragons) and I don't wanna sail the seven seas
(Anywhere we are becomes our castle) and the only world I want is here with me
And we both ride on a great white horse we found the love we were longing for
(You're my sunshine on a rainy day) you're my April you're my May
Singing dum-di-de-dum-dum-dum-di-de-dum



Don't ride the white HORSE? but ride the PONY? As in a small dose of "H"??


Laid Back: White Horse

If you wanna ride
Don´t ride the white horse
If you wanna ride
Don´t ride the white horse
White horse
Don´t ride the white horse
White horse
Don´t ride the white horse.

If you wanna be rich
You got to be a bitch
You got to be a bitch
I said rich, rich you bitch

If you wanna ride
Ride the white pony
Ride, ride the white pony
White pony, white pony



Ride the PONY?? PONY, a small HORSE? as in a small dose of "H"?? Hmmm...


Cheap Trick: Ride The Pony

Come to me, I'm your boogie man
Come to me, let me take your hand
Smile, you waited for some floor
Come to me, understand
Baby, don't you want some more
I've got what you need, what you're dyin' for

Ride the pony, satisfy your funk
Ride the pony, satisfy your funk

Dance with me, I'm the rhythm king
Dance with me, and shake that thing
Babe, I feel like I could die
‘Cause I've never been so high, higher than the sky

Ride the pony, satisfy your funk
Ride the pony, satisfy your funk
Ride the pony, ride the pony
Ride the pony, yeah, satisfy your funk

Move a little closer
What's holding that thing together
Let me scoot between your thighs
Got a pistol in my pocket
Just waiting for you, hey

Ride the pony, satisfy your funk
Ride the pony, satisfy your funk
Ride the pony, ride the pony
You got to ride the pony, yeah, satisfy your funk

Dance with me, I'm the rhythm king
Dance with me, I'll do most anything

Ride the pony, satisfy your funk
Ride the pony, satisfy your funk
Ride the pony, yeah, ride the pony

Ride the pony, satisfy your funk
Ride the pony, yeah, satisfy your funk
Ride the pony, ride the pony
Yeah, satisfy your funk
Ride the pony, ride the pony
Yeah you got to ride the pony
Satisfy your funk
Ride the pony




Okay, so maybe Buck Owens and Cheap Trick weren't singing about "H" - but there are a lot of songs about drugs, some anti-drug, some pro-drug use.

How is Fire and Rain about heroin? I thought it was about JT's fiancee who died in a plane crash.

And Rock 'n Roll heart by Clapton is a cocaine song, not a heroin song.

"Hotel California" is a heroin song, too.

Dave Matthews Band
Rhyme & Reason

Oh well oh well so here we stand
But we stand for nothing
My heart calls to me in my sleep
How can I turn to it
'Cause I'm all locked up in this
Dark place - and I do not know
I'm good as dead
My head aches - warped and tied up
I need to kill this pain

My head won't leave my head alone
And I don't believe it will
'Til I'm dead and gone
My head won't leave my head alone
And I don't believe it will
'Til I'm six feet under ground

How long I'm tied up
My mind in knots - my stomach reels
In concern for what I might do or
What I've done
It's got me living in fear
Well I know these voices must
Be my soul
I've had enough
I've had enough
Of being alone
I've got no place to go

Chorus
. . . In my grave
Lying wired shut and quiet in my grave
Leave me here
Leave it to me to waste here

So young here I am again
Talking to myself
A t.v. blares
Oh man oh how I wish I didn't smoke
Or drink to reason with my head
But sometimes this thick confusion
Grows until I cannot bare it all
Needle to the vein
Needle to the vein
Take this needle from my vein my friend

Chorus
. . . In my grave
Lying lying cold in my grave
Reason - my reason
Take my head off this terror
I'm fearing I'll come back
I'll see
My mind's all wiped clean
The needle
Make my great escape
I'll see the cold in time
My head leaves me behind
Let me fade away

I seem caught in time
My head leaves me behind
Body falls cold
And I see heaven

That's not a very good list. First thing that stands out is "Kick Start My Heart" by the Crue was written after the band got off H, coke and alcohol. The song is about gettin' their kicks from things other than drugs, not about getting high on H.
The other is, how can you come up with a list like that and leave out Skynrd's "Needle and the Spoon"?
Doesn't make sense to me!

http://www.exposingsatanism.org/crowley.htm



Aleister Crowley

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.


Edward Alexander (Aleister) Crowley was born October 12, 1875 in Leamington Spa, England. His parents were members of the Plymouth Brethren. He grew up with a biblical education and an equally thorough hatred of Christianity.

He attended Trinity College at Cambridge University, quitting just before completing his degree. Shortly thereafter he was introduced to George Cecil Jones, who was a member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. The Golden Dawn was an occult society which taught magic, kabala, alchemy, tarot, astrology, and other hermetic subjects. It had many notable members including A. E. Waite, Dion Fortune, and W. B. Yeats. Crowley was initiated into the Golden Dawn in 1898. He advanced up rapidly through the grades. But in 1900 the order was shattered by schism, and Crowley left England to travel extensively throughout the East. There he learned and practiced the mental and physical disciplines of yoga, supplementing his knowledge of western-style ritual magick with the methods of Oriental mysticism.

In 1903, Crowley married Rose Kelly, and they went to Egypt on their honeymoon. After returning from Cairo in early 1904, Rose began entering trance states. She told him that the god Horus was trying to contact him. Crowley took Rose to the Boulak Museum and asked her to point out Horus to him. She passed several images of the god and led Aleister straight to a painted wooden funerary stele from the 26th dynasty, depicting Horus receiving a sacrifice from the deceased, a priest named Ankh-f-n-khonsu. Crowley was impressed by the fact that this piece was numbered 666 by the museum, the number which he had identified since childhood.
He began to listen to Rose, and at her direction, on three successive days beginning April 8, 1904, he entered his room and wrote down what he heard dictated from a shadowy presence behind him. The result was the three chapters of verse known as The Book of the Law.

In 1906 Crowley rejoined George Cecil Jones in England, and they set created a magical order to continue where the Golden Dawn had left off. They called this order the A.'. A.'. (Astrum Argentium or Silver Star).

In 1910 Crowley was contacted by Theodore Reuss, the head of an organization called the Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.). This group of high-ranking Freemasons claimed to have discovered the supreme secret of practical magick, which is taught in its highest degrees. Crowley joined, becoming a member of O.T.O. Crowley rewrote the rites of the O.T.O.

Crowley referred to himself as "The Beast" and indulged in every aspect of the occult and was obsessed with it. He was into every form of sexual perversion you can imagine. He also had various sexually transmitted diseases. Aleister Crowley died in Hastings, England on December 1, 1947. However, his teachings live on.





Mr. Crowley, what went on in your head
(Oh) Mr. Crowley, did you talk to the dead
Your lifestyle to me seemed so tragic
With the thrill of it all
You fooled all the people with magic
(Yea)You waited on Satan's call

Mr. Charming, did you think you were pure
Mr. Alarming, in nocturnal rapport
Uncovering things that were sacred, manifest on this earth
(Ah)Conceived in the eye of a secret
Yeah, they scattered the afterbirth

Solo

Mr. Crowley, won't you ride my white horse?
Mr. Crowley, it's symbolic of course
Approaching a time that is classic
I hear that maidens call
Approaching a time that is drastic
Standing with their backs to the wall

Was it polemically sent
I wanna know what you meant
I wanna know
I wanna know what you meant, yeah!

(Solo)

Yeah, but it also refers to how a lot of addiction stems from chasing that first time you use a hard drug like heroin or cocaine. Apparently, the first time you get high is the best, and you fall into addiction "chasing the dragon", chasing that bliss, but instead the addict finds himself building up tolerance and using more and more just to maintain and avoid withdrawals.
