From the man who brought you "Sweet Caroline", wrote "I'm A Believer" for the Monkees, is an inductee of the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame, an honoree at the Kennedy Center Honors and the owner of a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award comes a complete and utter dog. This one, from 1968 "The Pot Smoker's Song". Just listen to it. Happy go lucky intro straight into a testimonial of someone who started with pot and who claims that along with meth (remember, this is 1968),"I also used to shoot acid up my spine." Really? Do tell bro.
This is bad even as album filler. Downright embarrassing for someone who really does have talent. Maybe he was doing it for the ladies of the parking lot. Whatever. The post I found it on has twelve other pot related songs, though I doubt any will match the juxtaposition of talent and cluelessness that this one has. Yeesh.
