25 Songs That Should Have Blown Up in 2012

Johnny May Cash f/ Rampage "Codeine"



With the recognition that this is coming from a non-codeine user, "Codeine" doesn't sound like my conception of the codeine drip; it isn't particularly narcotized or sluggish. Instead the track is all euphoric highs, the giddy excitement of realizing that yes, she does want to fuck, and there's maybe a hint of molly-infused earnestness in its caffeinated enthusiasm. It's almost more a song about the idea of codeine, before its addictive qualities grab on, prior to the lethargy and intoxication; instead, it has the rush of youthful naivite that suggests a world of possibility opening for the first time, the feeling of a great weight being lifted.
