Tox Tunes #100: Rehab (Amy Winehouse)

August 23, 2015, 11:03 pm

TPR started the series “”Tox Tunes” on January 3, 2010 with Keith Richards’ cover of Reverend Gary Davis classic “Cocaine Blues.” Our stated goal was to highlight selections “culled from the long tradition of popular songs about drugs, toxins, and poisoning.”

Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab” — sometimes called the most ironic song in history — is our one-hundredth selection. Of course, Winehouse died of alcohol intoxication in July 2011; the coroner’s report listed her blood alcohol level as 416 mg/dL.

As a look back, we will post a list of — and links to — our first 100 “Tox Tunes.”
