We at WCBSFM.com are here for you with another way to help you kick the habit. So instead of lighting up, here are a list of smokin’ hot songs to light that fire under your rear to get quittin’!
Bruce Springsteen – I’m On Fire
“I’m on fire” is what your lungs will be screaming after every puff of that Marly Red.
Elvis Presley – Burning Love
Love won’t be burning when you light that smoke, your hair might be too!
The Supremes – Stop In The Name Of Love
Stop in the name of love… and in the name of life.
Smokey Robinson (Get it? Smokey.) – Being With You
Ya see what we did there?
Billy Joel – We Didn’t Start The Fire
You can’t say “we didn’t start the fire” when you’re a smoker. Billy Joel is talking about you every time you light up.
Dolly Parton – Baby I’m Burning
Quit smoking and you’ll never utter those words to a loved one again.
Johnny Cash – Ring Of Fire
Johnny Cash was able to quit all the drugs he was hooked on. You can definitely quit smoking.
Pink Floyd – Nobody Home
“I’ve got the obligatory Hendrix perm.
And the inevitable pinhole burns
All down the front of my favorite satin shirt.
I’ve got nicotine stains on my fingers.
I’ve got a silver spoon on a chain.
I’ve got a grand piano to prop up my mortal remains.”
The Beatles – A Day In The Life
“Woke up, fell out of bed,
Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup,
And looking up I noticed I was late.
Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Made the bus in seconds flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke,
and Somebody spoke and I went into a dream”
The Platters – Smoke Gets In Your Eyes
The worst place to have smoke is in your lungs. Eyes is a very close second.
Deep Purple – Smoke On The Water
Smoke On The Water = Great Song. Smoke in your lungs = A very sad ending for you.
Patsy Cline – Three Cigarettes In An Ashtray
Three cigarettes in your ash tray? Are you a chain smoker? We’re here to help you quit.
Ottis Redding – Cigarettes And Coffee
Someone likes their stimulants.
