I'm here to take you higher...
10. The Cardigans - Higher
9. Primal Scream - Higher Than The Sun
I find it amusing that the top youtube comment for this song is one word: "Drugs."
8. The Unbelievable Truth - Higher Than Reason
A song about the problems caused by building a shrine in your front room... from Thom's little brother.
7. Cats On Fire - Higher Grounds
I don't approve of the band name, but the Morrissey-esque lyrics made me a fan...
Stay there for the whole day if you must.6. Sly & The Family Stone - I Want to Take You Higher
May the seagulls take you,
Well, I don't mind.
Stay there for the whole day, you're not getting paid anyway.
Were getting tired of your antics,
Well, so am I.
This. Is. Seriously. Funky.
5. Black Grape - Get Higher
In which Shaun Ryder has fun by getting Ronald Reagan to confess to Nancy's terrible drug habit.
4. Stevie Wonder - Higher Ground
Also covered by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, but the less said about that the better.
3. Grandmaster Flash & Melle Mel - White Lines
Get higher, baby... and don't ever come down.
On second thoughts... don't do it, Zammo!
2. Steve Winwood - Higher Love
Despite the fact that this song begins with Steve banging a bunch of pan lids in his kitchen... it's still a classic.
Various misheard mondegreens exist for this record, including "Bake me a pie of love", "Baked beans on high or low" and, my personal favourite, "Bring me an iron lung".
1. Jackie Wilson - (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher & Higher
Now once, I was downhearted
Disappointment was my closest friend...
Those were my higher loves (or iron lungs)... but which one takes you higher?
