lou reed and the chemical brothers - l think drugs may be involved

Two songs that have pretty obvious drug references and overtones, from different eras, but both are magnificent tracks in their own right
Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground's 'Waiting for my Man', and The Chemical Brothers 'Hey Boy Hey Girl'.
Myself and Sick Boy have been up to New York's Lexington 125 on shady business, and l can certainly identify with a lot of the visuals on the Chemicals track, so as far as relating to them goes, l'm your man, "feeling sick and dirty - more dead than alive" (or l was at the time).
However, they were happy days indeed, but obviously all behind me now, as l am currently respectable!
God knows how.
