A Song For the 9th of the Month: "Cloud Nine” by The Temptations

Here's my salute to songs with numbers in them. Every day this month, I'll select a song with the number of the month in the title.

To celebrate the 9th day of the month, here’s a song that is, in a way, a mirror-opposite of The Byrds’ “Eight Miles High.” This brilliant song from the R&B legends describes how drugs are not a way to engage in altered states but a means to escape from hopeless situations. “Just Say No” rings pretty hollow when you come from a broken home and can’t find a job.



What songs do you like with "Nine" in the title? Leave ideas in the comments!
