"Angel Dust" by Gil Scott Heron

Gil Scott Heron is a poet and musician who laid the groundwork for what would become Hip-Hop. The wailing crybaby guitar along with the vocal hook make this song so irresistible, I guess kind of like addictive drugs! Scott Heron released this song in 1978, after the peak of his critical acclaim and before his politically charged Reagan-Era songs. If you're looking for one of his more seminal works, definitely check out
