Cigarette Songs

Today is "Kick Butts Day". Officially identified by the Campaign For Tobacco-Free Kids as "a day of activism that empowers youth to take action against tobacco use at more than 2,000 events from coast to coast." It's a noble goal considering how much we know about the negative health impacts of cigarette smoking today. The average smoker will lose 11 minutes of their life for every cigarette he or she smokes. We still have a way to go, but thankfully, we've reached a point where cigarette smoking is out of fashion. Not too long ago smoking was associated with being cool. Famous actors and actresses smoked them on the big screen constantly and musicians puffed away on stage between songs. For this playlist I've pulled together 40 great tracks that all contain direct references to cigarette smoking.
