This playlist is inspired by the Ted Demme cocaine trafficking biopic 'Blow'.

Some creative license has been taken, like in the case of "Spoonful" by Cream. While the song did not appear on the soundtrack, the band did, and I feel like "Spoonful" is a legitimate substitute for "Strange Brew" given the context of the material.

Likewise, Nikka Costa's "Pebble To A Pearl" didn't come out til seven years after 'Blow' was released, but the soul of the tune and her advice to "Don't be afraid to live out loud" would've been right at home on George Jung's eight-track deck.
