“California” is a 2011 song about California by the electronic rock music artist Tom Ugly from Sydney, Australia. With a sound which many compare to Radiohead and Beck , Tom Ugly, 20, provides a rather straight-forward marijuana-laced vision of the Golden State in “California.” (This blog hears a few echoes of INXS in the ambiance of this rhythmic booty-shaker, incidentally.) “California, I never said I like it better California, although it’s true I like the weather California, the sun floats upon you like a feather California, and everything around you is hella stella La, La, La, La, La, La Land I want to go to California.” These are among the tamest lyrics in a song that dances on the ‘parental advisory’ line. “California” comes from the perspective of one who dreams of someday going to California but, in the meantime, meets someone who promises to take him on another kind of “trip.” The song is obviously geared toward the members of Generation Y , many of whom instantly think “pot” at the mere mention of the Golden State today. Considered a new anthem among cannabis circles, “California” by Tom Ugly is one of the edgiest songs about California to ever accompany twisting-one-up and toking. TOM UGLY
