Top Ten Best Songs About Cocaine

When they say Miami is a city built of snow, rest assured they aren't talking about the weather. Even pop culture, through movies like Scarface and TV shows like Miami Vice, have helped equate the city to sweet Lady Cocaine. That's reason enough to honor it by listing some of the best cocaine-related songs -- whether it's about the sudden euphoria or the dismal repercussions.

10. Goldfrapp "Ride a White Horse"


Call it whatever you want, but Goldfrapp's 2006 single makes cocaine sound so cool. It's glamorous. It's sexy. It's addictive. Then came the video, which was more crack cocaine than just the good stuff.

How pure it is? It's like being transported back to Studio 54, so you are probably in a backroom orgy too fucked up to care.
