All smokers listen to music during a session. For some, it is a vital part of the experience. It does not matter what mood you might be in, music and weed go together like elbow macaroni and cheese. It does not matter how you are feeling. After you light up and turn some music on, nothing else matters in the moment. But whether you are relaxing, sad or winding down after a long day while you are smoking, here are five songs to match any high that you might be experiencing.
Sound and Color By Alabama Shakes
Looking for music to stimulate your mind? This song has all the right components for thinking and listening. Some may recall first hearing this song on the latest IPad Pro Commercial with its trippy images of outer space. The earthy tones keep the listener engaged with the rifting and twirling in and out.
The vibrating, lingering melodies cling to the ear, leaving soft, bright, orange kisses along the ear canal, then lightly cascading off the ear drum from beginning to end. There is even a diabolical breakdown right before the end of the song where, lead singer Brittany Howard, allows the music to flow throughout her voice. The listener can hear the sorrow and joy in her singing.
2. Smoking and vibing with your favorite people
Pass the Vibes By Donnie Trumpet and The Social Experiment
Getting high with a chill group of people? If the title of the song doesn’t make you want to pass the herb, then the smooth, rich melody might help. The alto and bass singers intertwine to make the little lyrical component that the song does have memorable. The song doesn’t have very many lyrical components, but you don’t need them. This song gives off a “Jamaican” feel. Listen to it alone or “pass the vibes” with your favorite smoking buddy.
