Wouldn’t it be nice if your iPod could detect your mood and make a playlist for you?
But unfortunately, we don’t have this privilege, at least not until now.
Things become better when you have the perfect playlist and the perfect mood for it.
But alas! Unlike Spotify Premium users we have to make our perfect playlist according to our moods.
You must have the playlist for moods like when you are happy or when you are heartbroken… but I am here with the playlist full of songs that you can listen to when you are high.
So, you got baked, and now you’re on the prowl for the best songs to listen to when high.
It’s kind of hard to explain what makes a song good for listening high, but in my humble opinion, it should have either a mellow or a somewhat psychedelic vibe.
So, I gathered some stoner-friendly songs to chill out. Here are 14 songs that you can listen to when you’re high:
- 1. The Voidz – Human Sadness
- 2. Of Monsters and Men – Little talks
- 3. Tinashe – Bet
- 4. Travis Scott – Stargazing
- 5. Arctic Monkeys- Tranquillity Base Hotel & Casino
- 6. David Bowie – Life on Mars?
- 7. The Weeknd – Reminder
- 8. The Rolling Stones – Hey Negrita
- 9. The Strokes – Hard To Explain
- 10. Fever Ray – When I Grow Up
- 11. The 1975 – Sincerity Is Scary
- 12. Harry Styles – Sunflower
- 13. Oasis – Champagne Supernova
- 14. The Japanese House – Something Has to Change
1. The Voidz – Human Sadness
This surreal 11-minute rock & roll epic is from the 2014 album “Tyranny”, which is the first collaborative effort between Julian Casablancas of The Strokes and his new bandmates.
The music of The Voidz is highly experimental but at the same time quite listenable, but most importantly, it goes very well with getting high.
If you’re feeling “Human Sadness”, you should check out their 2020 crazy life performance for a track titled “Alien Crime Lord”.
2. Of Monsters and Men – Little talks
Of Monsters And Men are an Icelandic folk/rock band, and “Little Talks” was the first single off their 2011 debut album “My Head Is an Animal”.
This song has a powerful emotional effect, and the music video is pretty peculiar and stunningly beautiful.
3. Tinashe – Bet
“Bet” comes from Tinashe’s 2014 debut album “Aquarius”, and this soothing R&B track is both relaxing and somewhat ominous.
The music video is pretty conceptual, and it’s quite different from any modern mainstream rhythm and blues release. If you find yourself vibing to Tinashe, you should also check out “Ride of Your Life”.
4. Travis Scott – Stargazing
Travis Scott doesn’t really need an introduction, but if you’ve somehow managed to miss his work, Cactus Jack is a very talented Houston-based trapper.
The song “Stargazing” is off his multi-platinum 2018 release “Astroworld”, and it has a very odd and outlandish atmosphere, which is just perfect for getting baked.
5. Arctic Monkeys- Tranquillity Base Hotel & Casino
“TBH&C” is the main single from the band’s 2018 album that bears the same name, and this particular release marks the departure from their guitar-dominated sonics.
“Tranquillity Base Hotel & Casino” is an awesome song, but the music video is just as fantastic.
It’s a strange amalgamation of both vintage and futuristic elements and can be considered very Kubrick’s.
If you end up liking the track, we’d also suggest that you give this album a listen in its entirety, since the lyrical themes and overall atmosphere go wonderfully with THC-induced contemplation.
6. David Bowie – Life on Mars?
This would be a very crappy list if we failed to mention one of the coolest guys in the history of music.
“Life On Mars?” was released in 1971 as a part of the “Hunky Dory” album, and its casual vibe and contemplative lyrics make this Bowie track perfect for listening to when you’re high.
7. The Weeknd – Reminder
“Reminder” is one of the seven singles from the widely acclaimed 2016 release “Starboy”, and besides being very soothing and listenable, it also has a really dope vibe.
Unlike the majority of The Weeknd’s releases, “Reminder” has an uplifting atmosphere, and the impressive qualities of Abel’s voice are quite evident on this track.
8. The Rolling Stones – Hey Negrita
We’ve chosen this Rolling Stones track because it’s just so fun, and the accompanying 1976 video is extremely goofy and will put a smile on your face.
The Stones were experimenting with reggae influences at the time, and the result is pure entertainment.
9. The Strokes – Hard To Explain
The guys from The Strokes undeniably have swagger, and “Hard to Explain” is an energetic low-fi tune with a cool video.
It’s a collage of various random vintage footage that will surely please your visual cortex while you’re high.
10. Fever Ray – When I Grow Up
Fever Ray is the solo project of Karin Dreijer from the Swedish electronic duo The Knife (who’ve we already mentioned in this list). “When I Grow Up” was released in 2009.
This song has a strange and beautiful atmosphere, and the music video is simply enchanting and perfect for getting high.
11. The 1975 – Sincerity Is Scary
1975 are a magnificent English pop-rock band, and they are probably the most fruitful contemporary musical group of the last decade. They’ve amassed worldwide popularity and critical acclaim for their genre-bending and constantly evolving sound.
“Sincerity Is Scary” is very cheery and upbeat, and the music video is visually enjoyable and will certainly make you smile.
12. Harry Styles – Sunflower
Listening to “Sunflower” for the first time can be a pleasant surprise, especially considering the state of modern pop music.
“Sunflower” is a light rock and roll song with an overtly positive vibe, and if you find yourself digging this track, you should probably give Harry’s entire 2019 “Fine Line” release a listen.
13. Oasis – Champagne Supernova
“Champagne Supernova” is no doubt the most convivial song of the undisputed kings of Cool Britannia.
This comforting track was released in 1995 as a part of the legendary “(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?” album, and it’s got one of the most memorable Oasis lyrics of all time, which are of course “Where were you when we were high?”.
14. The Japanese House – Something Has to Change
The Japanese House is the stage name of Amber Mary Bain, a British independent rock musician.
“Something Has to Change” has a really cool and a little melancholy atmosphere, and you can easily enjoy this song while you are high.
