15 Step By Radiohead

There’s something about this song that just makes you feel good. The lyrics are positive and uplifting, and the music is happy and upbeat. It’s the perfect song to listen to when you’re feeling good and want to share the love. The next time you’re smoking some weed, consider listening to this song.
Bob Marley And The Wailers were a Jamaican reggae band and, earlier, a ska vocalist group created by Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, and Bunny Wailer. The band was formed in 1962 in Kingston, Jamaica. By late 1963 many members of the original lineup had left to begin careers of their own. In 1964, the trio regrouped and continued to record some of their most well-known songs such as “Stir It Up” and “Get Up Stand Up”.
The original members reunited in 1972 for what was intended to be a one-off benefit concert but they enjoyed it so much that they decided to continue touring. In 1974, they played at the One Love Peace Concert in Kingston which had been organized by the Jamaican government to help promote the end of hostilities between political factions in Jamaica.
However, shortly after this concert, an attempt was made on Bob Marley’s life while he was traveling with his wife Rita and son Damian. This prompted him to go into exile in London where he died on May 11 1980 from cancer.
Feel Good Inc. By Gorillaz
This song is the perfect mix of relaxing and upbeat, making it perfect for a chill session. The lyrics are also pretty fun to sing along to when you’re catching a whiff of the positive vibes.
Gorillaz is a virtual band created in 1998 by musician Damon Albarn and artist Jamie Hewlett. The band’s current line-up consists of four animated members: 2D, Murdoc, Noodle, and Russel.

Warm Sound By Zero 7
There’s something about the hazy, dreamy quality of this song that makes it perfect for a mellow high. The lyrics are soothing and the overall vibe is just peaceful and calming. If you’re looking to relax and just enjoy the moment, this is definitely the song for you.

Calming By Colbie Caillat
This is a quiet song with very soothing lyrics. It’s also low on lyrics, which allows you to get further into your high while still being able to enjoy some kind of musical accompaniment. This song has an indie sound that I think pairs particularly well with weed due to its focus on guitar and bass over a complex beat structure. This allows it to keep a nice mellow sound without ever distracting you from your high.
Colbie Caillat is a singer-songwriter from Malibu, California. She self-released her first album, Coco, in 2006, which was followed by a high-profile record deal with Universal Republic Records. Her debut album with the Universal Republic, Coco, was released in 2007; it peaked at number two on Billboard’s Top Heatseekers chart and number 15 on the Top Independent Albums chart.
In 2008 Colbie released a five-song EP entitled Bubbly which included the single “Bubbly”. The song became a major hit worldwide, peaking at number one in seven countries including Australia and New Zealand as well as reaching number four on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the Billboard Pop Songs chart in the United States.
All of these songs are great to listen to while high, so why not include one or two of these songs throughout your next smoking sessions?
