I Want A New Drug

Lyrics

I want a new drug - one that won't make me sick,
One that won't make me crash my car, or make me feel three feet thick.
I want a new drug - one that won't hurt my head,
One that won't make my mouth too dry, or make my eyes too red.

One that won't make me crash my car, or make me feel three feet thick.
I want a new drug - one that won't hurt my head,
One that won't make my mouth too dry, or make my eyes too red.

Never knew Huey was asked to do the themesong to Ghostbusters . He told 'em he was too busy promoting this song & album to do it. Then he was blown away when the rhythm & bass to Ray Parker Jr.'s themesong to the movie sounded a LOT like I Want a New Drug. Took a court case to settle it all out.

Remember all the controversy with this song because the retards at Tipper Gore's Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC) labeled this song as "pro-drug"? Duh, listen to the lyrics, squares...he ' s clearly saying there is no drug that makes him feel as good as his girl does.

Huey Lewis did not do any songs for Ghostbusters . The producers asked him to do the title song and he turned them down. So they stole the baseline from this song to make the theme song. Huey Lewis actually sued them over it and won.
