I wrote this song shortly after the first sexual encounter I had. With just one taste, I was hooked. Love is a drug was written a little bit after Love at first sight at 19. I clearly had strange notions as to what love is. Maybe the Disney movies made me believe that falling in love something that was instantaneous, in any case, I think I grew addicted to the feeling of falling in love. Not knowing that falling out of love was the most unpleasant rehab.
The mytholical moment I decided to portray this song with is when Dionysus and Aphrodite got together. I found it appropriate to have the Goddess of Love bedding the God of Wine. I suited the name of the song beautifully.
