7. John Lennon – Cold Turkey

Like we said heroin is not your friend and when Saint John of the Fabs tried to kick the drug he had to go through the famous cold turkey when the painful aching withdrawal caused by the craving of the drug caused a lot of pain and agony which in classic John style he put into this raucous and amazing song – the most naked of a series of naked songs…

The lyrics tell you everything you need to know…

“My feet are so heavy/So is my head/I wish I was a baby/I wish I was dead/Cold turkey has got me on the run.”
