Just Say No
Lost in the Dream by The War on Drugs sits next to Wall of Voodoo on the indie/pop shelves so got dusted down for a listen recently.
Initially I was not too sure of this record thinking it was a tad pretentious in places. The jury is still out although it seem to be be getting better every time I play it - which is not too often if I'm honest.
I'm not sure of the rationale behind their moniker but if ever there was a song championing the war on drugs it was surely Just Say No from the cast of Grange Hill
You'd be mugs to take drugs - just say no!
