Liner Notes: 

PROMPT: “Drugs” (or anything one can become addicted to)

When hearing the word "drugs", the very first thing my mind went to was allergy medication, so that's the angle I ended up going with. As usual, went a bit over the allotted skirmish time (used 1.5 hours instead of 1), but, also as usual, I think it was worth it. Had a lot of fun on this one!


When I’m feeling down from the world
I know just what I need
When I get a case of the sniffles
I’ve got my own kind of remedy

When my throat gets swollen and dry
There’s a cure I’m thinking of
When I feel I just can’t get by
I need a special kind of drug


I can’t sing a note without you
You’re better than any prescription
Every time, you make me feel brand new

A dose of your smile every day
Exactly what the doctor ordered
You’re the one who makes me feel this way

I’m allergic to
A life without you

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

A few years ago 2 songwriters sat around a table for hours, found a singer and got a demo done to release a song! Youve achieved that and more and clearly as good in one hour! Top class skirmish and really enjoyable song.

This is so charming! Love the finger snaps and cheerful melody. Impressive even as a slightly longer skirmish!

Love the direction you took this one. Clever and catchy. Allergic to a lot of things but allergic to a life without you is super original. Enjoyed listening.

Love the finger snaps! This feels like it could be a jingle for a Zyrtec commercial….great skirmish write.

not a bad addiction, as long as the supply is there. and a happy, uptempo chirpy song to sell it, who can resist?

Beautiful take on the prompt. So fresh, upbeat and lovely. Very clever idea and realization. Short and sweet song. Beautiful singing and playing Cola.

Grrrl this was so good I had to listen to it twice! That chorus melody is SO catchy and don’t get me started on your fantastic beautiful wonderful (I’ve run out of superlatives) voice! Fab skirmish

Love the snaps, and your voice is so bright and clear. The last two lines are very clever!

This song is so bouncy and fun, I love it. Great take on the prompt and and really great write, well worth the extra time you took on this one. There's a light, jazzy feel to this that works really nicely.
