The Stranglers - Golden brown
"Golden Brown" is a song by the English rock band The Stranglers. It was released as a 7" single in December 1981, on Liberty. It was the second single released from the band's sixth album La Folie
There has been much controversy surrounding the lyrics. In his 2001 book The Stranglers Song By Song, Hugh Cornwell clearly states "'Golden Brown' works on two levels. It's about heroin and also about a girl". Essentially the lyrics describe how "both provided me with pleasurable times"
