Eat Your Heart Out, Grace Slick


One of the snappiest drug songs of the '30s, Cab Calloway's "Reefer Man," has made it to YouTube. Prairie Home Companion fans will note that it shares a melody with Garrison Keillor's little jingle for powdermilk biscuits. The tune probably predates both songs, but I still have to wonder about the "whole wheat" in Keillor's fictional product ("to give shy persons the strength to get up and do what needs to be done").
