I found Misterwives through Spotify radio. I was listening to something, I can’t remember what anymore, and when the album had ended (I am listening to full albums again) Spotify went straight to album radio and a Misterwives song came on. It was Machine and I loved it. I put it on a playlist and I kept coming back to it that I ended up checking their Spotify page and found this track, their cover of Chance the Rapper’s Same Drugs.
I know a lot of my friends like Chance the Rapper but I’ve never really heard any of his songs, much less this one, but when I heard Misterwives’ version of it, it hit me.
There’s something about that line:
We don’t do the same drugs no more
As someone who used to be a user back in the early parts of 2000 and whose gone clean (I’ve been clean and drug free for ten years now), I can really get that message. There’s something deep and profound in the way Misterwives sings this song. There’s a lot of thought and nostalgia and maybe even regret and it’s lovely.
There’s joy too and I get that and I love that.
I love this song and I love listening to Misterwives. I’ve made a playlist of their songs on Spotify and saved it so I can listen to it anywhere.
