"Subterranean Homesick Blues" - Bob Dylan (1965)

Wikipedia - "'Subterranean Homesick Blues' is a song by Bob Dylan, originally released in 1965 as a single on Columbia Records, catalogue 43242. It appeared 19 days later as the lead track to the album Bringing It All Back Home. ... The song's first line is a reference to codeine distillation and politics of the time: 'Johnny's in the basement mixing up the medicine / I'm on the pavement thinkin' about the Government'. The song also depicts some of the growing conflicts between 'straight' or 'square' (40-hour workers) and the emerging 1960s counterculture. The widespread use of recreational drugs, and turmoil surrounding the Vietnam War were both starting to take hold of the nation, and Dylan's hyperkinetic lyrics were dense with up-to-the-minute allusions to important emerging elements in the 1960s youth culture."
