Glass Animals has gained fame for their remarkable live shows which involve dance-heavy versions of their songs. The song ‘The Other Side of Paradise’ comes from the band’s second studio album, How to Be a Human Being which was released in 2016. If you don’t have a Bob Marley track on your stoner playlist, you are doing it wrong! ‘Sun is Shining’ was first released as part of the Soul Revolution album in 1971. It reappeared on African Herdsman two years later and was re-recorded by Marley on his 1978 album, Kaya.
It is one of his most popular songs and is widely credited as one of the tracks that led to the explosion of reggae fusion into the mainstream. Back in 2015, UK newspaper The Independent released a list of the 20 most-streamed tracks from 420 playlists. It is a fantastic tune to listen to in concert with an uplifting marijuana strain. A deep examination of the lyrics suggests the song is praising Jah for the sunshine and the gift of another day. It is very much a song that should make you celebrate life. It was a ‘virtual’ band created by several individuals, including Blur frontman, Damon Albarn. Bizarrely, ‘Feel Good Inc.’ was the only track in Albarn’s career to reach the top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 list of singles. It ultimately became Gorillaz’s most commercially successful track as part of the group’s second album, Demon Days , which was released in 2005.
The track seems to be a protest against the evils of consumerism. In the music video, you clearly see the windmill mentioned in the song, which is perhaps a reference to George Orwell’s Animal Farm, where a windmill powered the farm. We recommend getting stoned and watching the trippy music video while listening to the song. To lovers of psychedelic music, the British band Pink Floyd needs no introduction. Not everyone ‘gets’ this group, but those who do have become devoted followers. The song ‘Comfortably Numb’ was released as a single in 1980 and is part of the band’s 11 th studio album, The Wall , which was released in 1979. ‘Comfortably Numb’ is famous for being the last song the original band performed together live, in 2005. The song begins thoughtfully only to build up into a crescendo of one of the great guitar solos in musical history. You could choose one of several Pink Floyd songs while stoned, but we believe this one is the best. Those of you who lament the lack of ‘real’ talent in modern music will doubtless be delighted to see jazz legend John Coltrane on the list. However, ‘In a Sentimental Mood’ is proof that it isn’t just modern artists who gain fame from another person’s work. The song was originally recorded by Duke Ellington in 1935, but he recorded a version with Coltrane in 1963. There are few jazz tracks more suitable for when you’re high than this one. You can imagine yourself smoking a joint in a café in a prominent European city surrounded by culture and elegance. It is the epitome of a laid-back track and is ideal for listening with a joint in hand at the end of a hard day at work. Once again, The Doors is a band you simply can’t ignore when discussing stoner music. This legendary psychedelic rock band did things its own way and wasn’t around for long enough as lead singer, Jim Morrison, died at the age of 27. ‘Riders on the Storm’ is part of the group’s sixth studio album, L.A. We didn’t say that this list would have NO songs dedicated to marijuana! Kid Cudi is an American hip hop artist, and he doesn’t hide his love of ganja on this track. ‘Marijuana’ is on Kid Cudi’s second studio album, Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. The song itself is an ode to weed and is famed for being exactly 4:20 long.
In case you are in doubt as to the purpose of the track, Kid Cudi even says ‘and 4:20’ right at the end.
‘Marijuana’ includes a small electric guitar solo to mix things up a bit. Kid Cudi later revealed that he stopped smoking in 2011 because he was frustrated with being associated with stoner culture. This Californian rock band has been around for a LONG time.
